A very pleasant hotel (or large B&B!). The owners are very friendly and accommodating, and the breakfast is really great with a large choice of tasty hot and cold food. The hotel is a little tired or dated decor and furniture wise in places, but it seems that some improvement works are ongoing as we had a new en-suite in our room. It was also very clean. Our room was on the top floor and the room was not huge but a perfectly adequate size. The bed was a bit soft for us, but everyone has their own preference there.
The location of the Shirley one of the strongest points, with only a few minutes walk downhill to the centre of Torquay but easy access by car too. There is parking for a few vehicles so you may not get a space, but there is other parking on the street – unrestricted on one side and time limited but unrestricted overnight on the other side.
