A very pleasant and comfortable little hotel. Debbie and Gary are fine hosts and made us feel so welcome . Rooms were very clean and Debbie makes a killer breakfast. We'd go back.

We booked our visit to Torquay at the very last minute so were prepared not to get the best accommodation, so imagine our delight when we ended up in the best hotel we have ever frequented in the UK!
Garry, Debbie and Adam were excellent hosts and we were treated like one of the family right from the start (the welcoming cup of tea was a lovely touch after long car journey!). Nothing was too much trouble, from storing food and milk for our baby, to recommending all the best things to do in the area.
Our room was spotless and very comfortable and our baby slept very well in the cot that was loaned to us by the hotel. In fact she enjoyed the trip even more than us as she was given her own high chair, lots of space to crawl around and doted on by everyone in the hotel!
It is in a great place in Torquay, very near the harbour and with lots of very family friendly restaurants in close vicinity. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and will be doing so!
We look forward to our next visit very soon.

Have just got back from a 3 day break at The Shirley with my husband and was not dissaponted. Garry, Debbie and Adam ensure that you have an unforgetable and memorable stay here. From the moment that you arrive all the way through to departure you are made to feel like old family friends and NOTHING is too much trouble. Rooms are very clean and tidy with welcome bottles of water, which I have never had before even in top hotels. The breakfasts are excellent and freshly prepared with so much choice.
Forget other hotels and b+b's while staying in Torquay, you will not be dissapointed. GUARANTEED.

Spent three nights at the Shirley and we were very well looked after. Lovely welcome including a cup of tea/coffee and lots of information about the area. The room was clean with a few nice touches such as free bottled water, luxury toiletries. Breakfast was perfect with help-yourself cereal, yoghurt, juices etc and huge cooked breakfast prepared to order. 10 minute downhill walk into the centre.
