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.

Why go abroad when you can go to the English Riviera and stay with the lovely Gary and Debbie. If you want a good laugh for however long you stay and sleep in the most comfy beds and go down to breakfast each morning which will never fail to disappoint or leave you hungry then The Shirley is the place...

In all respects this was great value for money. Spotlessly clean and an excellent Breakfast each day. A spacious Guest Sitting Room where it was possible to sit in comfort reading from a wide assortment of books and magazines. Service was top rate and very friendly without being over the top. All for an overnight rate in high-season of 35... More
