We booked to stay at the Shirley not knowing that it had new proprietors. What a pleasant surprise. Nick and Chen were lovely hosts. A very warm welcome, great breakfast and wonderful homemade preserves. Can't wait to go again. Thankyou

The hotel is run by highly intelligent people,always a friendly smile,the whole place has an air of quality,what with the décor,the various objects.The breakfast was superb.If there is one downside it is is on a slope,but so is most of Torquay,we spent three nights there in September-wonderful.We came away with smiles on our faces.

Plenty... More

Sorry its taken me so long to write the review. We stayed in May and I just haven't got around to writing the review, which is a good thing, as I would have done it the day I got back if I had something terrible to report. Based on our experience at the time this was a lovely little hotel,... More
