Does what is says on the tin as they say; clean / comfortable bed / good location. We had a king room on 1st floor in the bay window, not huge but adequate and was quiet. Benefits from off road parking and very near sea front, we used it to go to a concert at BIC which it was perfect... More

Our room had the only double glazed window with 2 inches of warter in the cavity between the double glazing The walls were quite thin and our neighbours were a little noisy coming in... More

The double room was on the small side, however,... More

I had the great pleasure of staying at the Shirley 4 nights a week for over 2 months in August and September 2013. Usually I don't stay at the same hotel for more than a week or two but in this case I made an exception and that speaks volumes I think. Let's not get carried away here - the... More

I would like to recommend The Shirley Hotel to anyone who reads this review.
