This is a special hotel for sure. The stone exterior is impressive along with the central town location. The staff is friendly and helpful except late at night. What happened could have been a disaster if it had been an emergency call made to the front desk. Luckily, it wasn't that. On Sunday night, July 12th a birthday party was... More

My and I stayed here for two nights as a last minute booking as the hotel we were due to stay in elsewhere was uninhabitable in our view. However the two nights in The Shirley Arms more than compensated for our earlier disappointment. Firstly the staff from the reception desk booking in through to the dining room staff were all...

Room was nicely decorated and spacious but bring earplugs with you! Breakfast was nice enough. Some of the staff were standoff ish so not very welcoming, even at reception. Needless to say wont be back.

Very nice modern hotel in town centre. Big rooms. Lovely bathroom with plenty of towels, shampoo, etc. Spotlessly clean. Good bar with great bar food. Would recommend this hotel. We attended a birthday party in one of the function rooms - a great room for a party.

The Shirley Arms is a great hotel. I always use TripAdvisor before I book a hotel so apart from once they have all been very good but the Shirley Arms was better than most The hotel is very old but the bedrooms which are huge were built in 2008 as part of an extension to the back. There is plenty... More

this hotel is absolutely fabulous along with all the staff. We stayed for 4 nights for a wedding, we arrived with a hungry 2 year old relatively late on a very busy Saturday night, the receptionist went above and beyond to get us a table and succeeded. Once we went up to the room, which was a fantastic size for... More

I write this review as I lie in bed at 12.15pm, listening to a guy on a guitar as loud as he's sat on the end of the bed. The hotel is lovely. Friendly staff, good service and our room was very spacious. Queen bed with sofa area, 2 TV's, bath, desk and dressing table. All lovely you'd imagine. That... More
