This is our second stop at the 'Shirley' and we enjoyed the first hence our return. Garry & Debbie are superb hosts and the breakfast is truly 'First class', and is all locally sourced fair I believe! The location is ideal for the town centre if a little hilly (but you are in Torquay). We have found the hotel very clean , the rooms are peaceful and comfortable and Garry & Debbie can not do to much to help. And we look forward to returning next year!!!! The Willoughby's

My husband and I only had a need to be in Torquay for one overnight stay but found the owners of the Shirley hotel gave us a very warm welcome on our arrival and our room was comfortable to being quite luxurious and supplied everything needed to make our stay special.In an excellent position to the restaurants and shops being in walking distance to the centre of the town.Breakfast was really nice with locally sourced foods and a variety of choices on the menu.We thought for the experience we had at this hotel we had a very good deal.Brian and Maureen Finka.

Room Tip: Room 9 has a very nice view including a partial view of the sea

Just spent a lovely three night stay at the Shirley - and what a gem! Owners Debbie and Gary go out of their way to make you feel welcome right from the outset and treat you like old friends rather than first time visitors. Location is great - only an easy 5 to 10 minute walk from the centre of Torquay and a range of local restaurants. Our room was spotless and extremely comfortable with what seemed like a brand new bathroom. Great spread for breakfast with a superb full English cooked to order by Debbie which we couldn't resist having every day! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will certainly be back again.

Thank you for your lovely and thoughtful review. The Shirley is in such a great location and within easy reach of all the local shops, restaurants etc.

We do like to take the time to get to know our guests when they arrive. By doing that it helps us to know what they want from their stay with us and also enables us to give advise on where to eat or go for day trips etc.

Breakfast is probably the most important meal of the day so we do like to make sure that all of our guests are suitably fed and watered before they leave for the day.

So thank you again for your wonderful words and we hope that we shall see you again soon.

First time stay at this superior hotel. We were greeted by the owner Gary and his wife Debbie who made us feel extremely welcome and went out their way to make our stay more enjoyable. It is in a fantastic location to local bars, restaurants and the beach. The hotel itself is extremely clean, very well maintained and very homely! We would highly recommend this hotel and we both look forward to revisiting it in the future. Many thanks again to you both. David and Kerry.

Room Tip: All rooms are equipped with all essentials.
