From start to finish our stay at the Shirley was fantastic. The service was top notch the family room was clean comfortable and filled daily with water, sweets and biscuits. The fresh milk was a added bonus. The breakfast was delicious. Location is perfect walking into the harbour and town centre easily done. We will be staying there again!

If I stayed in Torquay again I would not dream of choosing another hotel. The Shirley is comfortable, quiet, very welcoming and friendly. My partner and I spoke to all of the people staying at the hotel at the same time as us. They shared our feelings.
