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.

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

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
