Thank you Gary & Debbie for such warm & cheerful hospitality during our stay at the Shirley. We loved it. Great pancakes & gluten free toast for breakfast this morning :))))))) We'll be sure to recommend to our friends & family & hope to be back again ourselves. All the best, Mark & Olga.

This is our second stop at the 'Shirley' and we enjoyed the first hence our return. Garry & Debbie are superb hosts and the breakfast is truly 'First class', and is all locally sourced fair I believe! The location is ideal for the town centre if a little hilly (but you are in Torquay). We have found the hotel very... More

Owners Debbie and Gary go out of their way to make you feel welcome right from the outset and treat you like old friends rather than first time visitors. Location is great - only an easy 5 to 10 minute walk from the centre of... More
