Had a very comfortable stay at the Shirley recently, lovely hosts, room kept spotless and very good value. Breakfast was great and nice touches such as bottled water left in your room daily and fresh milk in a refrigerator on the landing for your tea and coffee was most appreciated. Access isn't for the infirm and the short walk to town centre is a lot easier there than back but it helps walk of the excesses so we didn't mind, so thank you Nick&Chen we will no doubt see you again.

I can't give enough praise to nick and Chen for the outstanding service they provide and it's all done with wit & charm! Nothing is too much trouble and nick even sorted out a booking error from yours truly.the room was very comfortable with numerous little touches that make the difference. Breakfast very comprehensive with healthy portions for the hungry and other options if the english full breakfast is not your cup of tea.
Cleanliness & hygiene top notch towels changed at your request.
To summarize a lovely holiday in torquay topped off by quality accommodation and hosts

Myself, my husband and friends, returned home today from a very enjoyable stay at the Shirley. The owners made us feel very welcome. The house is beautiful, our room was immaculate, fresh bottled water every day, very tasty biscuits on the tea /coffee tray. Lovely toiletries in the bathroom. Very comfortable bed, lovely comfy pillows and bed, crisp fresh bed linen. Breakfast was plentiful, we were asked if we wanted more. It is a short walk to the harbour,which is beautiful also to the shops and restaurants and bars. I can't recommend this lovely b&b enough. Will be visiting again.

The owners go out of their way to make your stay special. Pot of tea on arrival. Carried two big suit cases up two flights of stairs. Excellent breakfast with lots of food and special touches like home made marmalade. The beds were great and everywhere was sparkling clean. The Shirley has an honesty bar in the living room, which is a nice touch. We personally didn't like Torquay a bit but don't blame The Shirley for that.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room closer to the ground floor. Lots of stairs and wi-fi less effective higher up

A great place to stay if you are staying in Torquay for the weekend. Staff are very helpful and polite. Breakfast was fantastic and appetizing. A very well run establishment and would definitely stay there again. Not far from the coast and town centre (walking distance)
