Just returned after four nights at this lovely hotel, very clean, owners friendly, breakfast superb, also lots of little extras such as bottled water in room, tea tray with choice of tea, coffee or hot chocolate plus biscuits. Room comfortable and warm. The only slight negative is the amount of time to wait before the shower water becomes hot.

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
