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

Great location, not on main road with on-site and free parking on the road. Rooms are all lovely and well decorated. Walk into town is not far (but up hill coming back ;-), with good choice of restaurants and pubs nearby. Best of all are Garry and Debbie and the wonderful breakfasts. Thank You Charles and Anne

Loved the look of this hotel & having just had a few days stay was not disappointed. Lovely location, close to all the town has to offer but really peaceful at night as slightly off the main road. Large room, really clean & a great breakfast freshly cooked & lots of choice. Lovely staff, nothing to much trouble. Would highly... More

Stayed just one night but the owners could not have been more helpful in making our room available early enabling us to prepare for a wedding elsewhere in Torquay. The room was clean, bright and well cared for. We only ate breakfast at the hotel but the choice was excellent and the quality first class. Would recommend - and indeed... More

Our stay at the Shirley proved to be a very enjoyable and comfortable experience. From the initial welcome to the final farewell we were treated as friends not just guests. The quality of service and care lavished upon us during our 7 night stay was above and beyond our expectations. The excellent and varied breakfast menu set us up for... More
