Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 August 2011

As usual we had a wonderful welcome and enjoyed Garry, Debbie and Adams company all week. Garry was very helpful suggesting and booking suitable restaurants. Especially liked the fresh milk on hand for my precious cups of tea - a great idea. The boys particularly loved the swimming pool and monopoly! See you soon.

Our stay at The Shirley Hotel was fantastic! Debbie & Gary are first class hosts & cannot do enough to ensure you have a wonderful stay. Our room & bathroom were newly decorated & were just as the pictures showed on their website. I can recommend the Superior Plus Bedroom - well worth the money! Not forgetting the great gluten free breakfast. My husband & I stay in many 4 & 5 star hotels but they lack the warmth & special touches The Shirley has to offer. Thank you & see you again :)

My husband and I stayed at the Shirley for 4 nights. We were orginally meant to have visited in 2010 due to a family emergency had to cancel. Garry honoured our booking to visit this year instead.

The hotel is beautiful and the staff work extremely hard to ensure your stay is as good as possible. We were made to feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble.

The breakfast was very varied and would suit all types of diets.

We stayed in a superior double which was furnished to a high standard.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night last minute break at the Shirley this week , the location, accommodation, staff and food were all excellent. The hotel provided good old fashioned hospitality at a very reasonable price! The breakfast was one of the best we have tasted with plenty of choice. The welcoming pot of tea on arrival was one of the little extras that made it so nice. Thankyou to all at the Shirley, we hope to return soon.

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
