What can I say on here that hasn't been said before?
Stayed over with other half for August Bank holiday weekend (for second time). Although it was a busy Saturday afternoon, Gary and Debbie welcomed us with a pot of tea and a chat, catching up like old friends who haven't been in touch for a while, but not forgotten.
The high standards of service, housekeeping and quality of rooms/bedding etc we experienced first time were still top notch, as were Debbie's award winning breakfasts (cooked to perfection and efficiently served by friendly staff).
Nothing (within any reasonable parameters!) is too much for The Shirley. Gary will happily advise on places to go, restaurants (Biancos is a must), etc and will organise bookings should you request it. The emphasis on giving guests personal attention alongside all the extra little touches in the rooms etc (frequently mentioned by others here) make a stay at this hotel an absolute joy. Why pay more for a bland impersonal chain hotel when you can enjoy affordable luxury here?
