Lovely little guest house tucked away in a back street. Friendly service and a great breakfast. But you need to be fit! Handy for the marina and shopping centre. Nice relaxing stay . Would definately return.

It was the second time we stayed at the Shirley hotel. If you looking for a friendly and welcoming place to stay so this is for you. We stayed 2 nights the owners are very friendly and helpful.The breakfast is beautiful. Rooms are nice and clean and the bed is really comfy. Highly recommend this place for everyone.

We have recently returned from another short break in Torquay and for the first time we stayed at The Shirley and we were not disappointed.

The Shirley was a very Grand Guest House. We ourselves own a Guest House so it was nice to be looked after for a change. The hosts were incredibly friendly, there are water stations throughout, access to fresh milk, the lounge and honesty bar was beautiful. The beds were incredibly comfortable especially the lovely bedding, we all slept a treat.... More

After arriving in Torquay to watch FC United of Manchester in the FA Trophy 'giddy' with excitement, we were soon brought down to earth by realising that the hotel we had booked was for the wrong date! Frantically, we looked to find another hotel and lucky came across The Shirley. We were warmly welcomed by the couple who own it,... More

My fiancé and I stayed at the Shirley this week for one night and had a standard double room. The owners, Garry and Debbie, were extremely welcoming and fantastic hosts from the minute we entered the hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed meeting them.

We recently stayed for 1 night. Received a very warm welcome, room and bathroom well equipped. The breakfast was freshly prepared and nothing was too much trouble for the owners. Would highly recommend.
