This is the 3rd time we have stayed at the Shirley and we have consistently had a lovely welcome, nice spacious and very clean rooms and a fantastic breakfast. The attention to detail is exceptional in a relatively inexpensive hotel. We thoroughly recomend a stay here, you will not be dispapointed.

We have stayed at the Shirley before when visiting our relations in Torquay and would not stay anywhere else, there is always a very warm welcome in fact it is more like coming to stay with friends! The room is beautifully decorated and cosy, the bed is extremely comfortable, crisp fresh bed linen and the pillows are heavenly! The en-suite is very luxurious and spotless, lovely toiletries and beautifully soft fluffy towels. Breakfast is perfect, a good range of cereals and fruit juices plus there is always a great big dish of fresh fruit all followed by an excellent Full English breakfast or choice of poached, scrambled eggs etc or if you want something a bit different you can pre-order the day before, what more could you ask for!
Garry and Debbie work so well as a team and are just so obliging, I just don't think that you can beat a stay at the Shirley Hotel, we will definitely return!

We wanted a special break - we found the right place. A warm greeting when we arrived with a warming pof of coffee, welcome after a long journey. Our room was very inviting with tea,coffee and biscuits. There was also fresh milk if you required it. Wonderful big bed,fluffy towels and some really lovely toiletries. Wonderful shower and everything so clean and fresh..Breakfast excellent- so much choice and smiles from staff as they served us. Gary and Debbie, our hosts were so friendly,caring and very informative. Hope to go back to see them and recommend that you visit them too.. Dot and Tony Smith - Farnborough

Room Tip: All rooms excellent.

Thank you for your very kind and thoughtful words. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your time with us. The sweets in the room are just one of the little extras that we have introduced within the last year and it seems to be a hit with all of the guests. Thank you again and we will see you soon we hope.

We recently visited theShirley Hotel and spent a wonderful few days there while we visited our daughter who works nearby.We received a very warm welcome with a warming pot of tea after quite a long journey.Our room was spacious and well appointed with a newly referbisheden- suite. breakfast was superb with a delicious fresh fruit salad available as well as a varied and sumptuous menu.Debbie and Gary were excellent hosts and gave us excellent advice on local attr actions.I was also impressed with the selection of fashion items available at reception.. Who needed the shops! The hotel is ideally located to make the most of the vibrant nightlife as well, being just a short stroll up the hill from the vibrant marina area. We can't wait to visit again Thank you Debbie and Gary. R& R George

Thank you for your lovely review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed staying with us. Your comments on the new en-suite are particularly welcome. 'The Shirley' is a large building and we are always updating rooms etc when finances allow. It's nice to know that it doesn't go un-noticed. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.
