Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 16, 2010

Have stayed a number of times now - and will definitely be back again in 2010
Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts Gary And Debbie. The grand accommodation is warm and welcoming and the breakfasts are not to be missed. Adam does a great job in the dining room ensuring the breakfast are delivered on time and that the tea and toast are kept flowing. The hotel is a 10 minute walk to the central harbour where most people seem to congregate in the summer months.

We have just returned from a 4 day break at The Shirley and we were warmly greeted and immediately offered a welcome cup of tea. We were made to feel like old friends from the start. You only had to ask - from a variation on the breakfast menu, a recommendation for an evening meal, a suggestion of a place to visit or a scenic drive out (including detailed maps printed off straightaway) nothing was ever too much trouble. A lovely home, very warm and friendly hosts, plenty of food, comfortable beds - all you ever want for a short break or a longer holiday.

A truly wonderful hotel. From the warm & friendly greeting upon arrival, the personal attention throughout your stay, to the send off on departure this hotel is an absolute joy. Amidst the beautifully elegant surroundings & the picturesque, but convenient, location, what sets this hotel apart are the people behind it. The owners, Garry & Debbie, could not be more helpful or informative, and Adam, a true star, entertained our children thoughout, which made our trip even more relaxing. A big thank you to you all.

Gary, Debbie and Adam couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful - and always around for a friendly chat !

The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Good breakfast, with a varied menu (and they were happy for you to order slight variations on the menu).

Highly recommended !
