“A great, friendly hotel we would go back to!”
Reviewed 9 August 2011

We stayed for 4 days and from the moment we stepped through the door we felt very welcome! The hotel was very clean and the room was modern and well stocked. The pool was clean and heated and ready for the children to use each morning. The breakfast very very good. The owners were very helpful and we felt they went out of there way to ensure our family had a great holiday! (Nothing was too much trouble.) A very welcoming hotel that we would go back to.

Room Tip: room 14 if you have a family

What can i find wrong with hotel: not a lot.
The staff: very nice polite and always smiling and nothing is too much trouble.
Decor: very nice and bright makes a change from the normal dated decor.
Location: Very nice just far enough from the town not to have the noise but close enough that you don't need a loan for a taxi back after a few drinks.
Food: brilliant I will be returning to this hotel

Room Tip: the room we stayed in was on the 2nd floor no lift and views of the pool and sea

Just come back from 5 fantastic days with Garry and Debbie. We couldn't have been better looked after if we had stayed with family or friends. From the welcoming cup of tea (squash for the kids) upon arrival, to the 'award winning' breakfast each morning and the extremely comfortable room, our every need was met. Wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Toquay.

My children and I have just returned from a short stay at the Shirley and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We wanted to stay longer but they were fully booked. Not surprising really given that Gary and Debbie provide such a fantastic service. The room was very clean. The pool was always clean and warm. Breakfast was a delight every morning. Val and Sam served everything with a smile and Gary and Debbie were a wonderful source of knowledge on everything Torquay has to offer.

We will definately come again. and Thanks again for having us

we knew we had picked the right hotel on the welcome we received on arrival. The room was very clean and comfortable with wide choice of tea and coffee. Towels and bed linen of a high quality. Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice and fresh local ingredients. Owner and staff were very friendly and made us feel at home. Staying at this hotel made our weekend really special in Torquay. Would highly recommend.

From the first phone call we were made to feel welcome, the hotel itself was all it was advertised to be, the owners are extremely helpful and friendly, the whole experience was a pleasure the lounge, pool, sundeck and bedroom were immaculate. As was the breakfast in the morning. If we go back to Torquay we will definitely hope to stay here again.
