Staying here for work so just wanted somewhere half decent to sleep after a long day. Owner seemed OK on arrival but the first topic of conversation was about the fact he hadn't processed payment as he was going to do this on arrival. I didn't book it so this will probably be an issue. The room is freezing due... More

The bathroom gave me first hand experience of what it must be like to live and work on a submarine! Even... More

We had the small room at the top, which we were advised about on booking. Although room small, the bed was king size and very comfortable. The breakfast was lovely. A fantastic centrally located b&b, with parking. Would thoroughly recommend for a short break or overnight stay.

Shirley Hotel was a great choice for me and my husband when we visited Bournemouth. The rooms are small as are most places around England, but very clean and well priced. The breakfast was also delicious, and Jorge was very helpful with providing directions and historical facts.
