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

I love going to Shirleys for food in the bar or restaurant, food is fab, staff are always friendly. Great atmosphere in the lounge, specially when there's music on. We always meet up for girly lunches.

We received a voucher as a gift so visited this hotel for a meal recently. We decided to eat in the bar and found a lovely comfortable table at one end where we had a good view of the comings and goings of the hotel. There was a good buzz about with lots of people eating. I ordered the chicken... More

Super hotel at the bottom of the Main Street - staff very pleasant and the hotel clean and fresh. Bedrooms spacious and comfortable - would recommend this hotel. We stayed for just the one night and all the staff were helpful. Excellent breakfast and easy check-in and check-out process.
