Firstly we couldn't have wished for a better hotel, Gary & Debbie want you to enjoy your stay and really make sure that you do, if you want to know something they help , if you need something they will try to help you get it. You get the friendly , personal touch when you stay at the Shirley.
We stayed in the standard room and found it really good value for money, nicely decorated and furnished, flat screen tv, en-suite spacious and a pretty good shower too, and most important a very comfortable bed.
Now to probably the most important part , the breakfast, all I can say is if what is on offer doesn't do it for you go self catering because you will have a job to match the quality and choice whether hot or cold. To all Coeliacs out there Debbie really took care and had gluten free products so a full "brekkie" could be had and even supplied g/f biscuits in the room ! ! So all G/F people out there you can be confident that there is someone who knows how to look after you at this hotel.
The location is really good as it is in a really quiet road but close enough that you can walk to all the action and sea front leaving the car in the hotels car park although as in much of Torquay there is a slight hill to walk up on your return. The only downside to The Shirley is that you need to be able to negotiate the incline and the steps that lead to the hotel entrance but I would think anybody that had a problem would know that from the info about the hotel.
My last comment to include in this review is Thank You to all the really pleasant staff and to Gary and Debbie for being wonderful hosts. This is my choice without hesitation when I visit Torquay again.
