Having stayed at the Shirley hotel on various occasions throughout the past 4 years, I can honestly say it is a home from home. Garry and Debbie couldn't be more helpful, inviting and genuinely interested in making every visit a special occasion. I grew up in the Torquay area, and I can see the huge amount of progress made in... More

Great room in a spotlessly clean hotel, very relaxed and nothing to much trouble for staff and Mine Host's Gary and Debbie. We'll be back! From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome, and the peacefulness of the place struck you from that moment.

Top class on every level. Very friendly staff and very well managed. Food choice and quality good. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The hotel includes a pool which one can swim in or just unwind poolside. Would not hesitate to return.
