Must say the owners and staff were some of the most accommodating I have come across after many nights spent in hotels. The whole experience of the Shirley over two days stay was excellent. Much thought has obviously been made about guest requirements. The quality of the furnishings and fittings were also up to a very high standard. Choice of... More

Only stayed for one night but were made to feel very welcome in this lovely B&B. Everything was fantastic - room was bright, clean and comfortable, breakfast was excellent and the hosts so friendly and helpful. No complaints whatsoever.

Just the very fact I am writing this good review is testament to the Shirley Hotel, Torquay. The Shirley is a Very Impressive Hotel which standed out from its local competion, which helped as we was searching for a place to stay for the evening without reservation, so after looking at a few prospective places, we tried the Shirley, to...

Our family of four stayed one night in the loveliest room, it's furnishings were beautiful, beds so comfortable. Very clean and fresh. Lovely hot shower, a huge space for 4 people. The breakfast was served by a courteous, friendly lady that could not do enough for us. And it was perfectly cooked and hot. I stupidly left valuable personal items... More

Have just returned from another fabulous stay at The Shirley in Torquay and it never fails to disappoint.

We look forward to future visits and anyone who is... More

We stayed last weekend for one night and had a really nice time at the Shirley. I found the Shirley through Hotels.com and checked out the reviews here on Trip Advisor, safe to say we were expecting a lovely stay and were not disappointed. I called Debbie on the day before with regards to non-allergy pillows and requesting that we... More

We had a lovely stay at the Shirley. Garry and Debbie were wonderful hosts, the room was spotless, beautifully decorated, plenty of tea & coffee, fresh milk in a fridge on the landing. There was bottled water by the bed all lovely touches. Breakfast was superb, and any request was met positively and granted if at all possible. We will... More

We found The Shirley on the web and were so pleased with it! What a lovely experience. The proprietor/owner, Garry and his wife were most accommodating and we were so pleased when we checked in that we chose to stay there another night. The only downside is parking but Garry graciously offered to move our vehicle so we wouldn't be... More

What a fantastic stay. Comfortable beds and lovely room. Every where spotlessly clean and comfortable. The bath towels were huge and fluffy and there were complimentary toiletries too. The breakfast was first class with plenty of choice. Debbie and Garry were good hosts. Garry was so funny (loved his sense of humour). Garry was extremely helpful with booking things for... More
