Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 May 2014

I had forgotten the heights of Torquay!
Welcome and induction on arrival was comprehensive.room clean and tidy ,shower worked adequately,bed was ample (for my 6'4'' and my wife) All the extras in place Honesty bar in comfy lounge.You lack for nothing.Only problem climbing the heights from the harbour,however plenty of taxis and most helpful drivers.
Gary and Debbie run a tight ship to am high standard and they make sure you enjoy yourself,nothing is too much trouble..
They do the best breakfasts ever!

Room Tip: Lower floors(less stairs!Back rooms on North side,no sunshine and more breeze.

Parking can be an issue, There is some on the very steep forecourt or its street parking. The welcome was warm and friendly with good facilities. The room was clean and tidy and breakfast was good. The location was good.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review and we are pleased that you did enjoy your short stay with us.

' The Shirley' in common with many other properties in the area is situated on a hill. This though we feel along with many of our other guests is a small price to pay for the location as we are so very close both to the town and the marina.

We are lucky that we do have parking available as many other guesthouses in the area have to rely totally on street parking.. Therefore the majority of people who have stayed with us have not found this to be an issue.

Once again thank you and we do hope that you will choose to stay with us again on a future occasion.

This was our second visit to the Shirley Hotel. We chose to return was because of the hospitality we received on our first stay from the owners Gary and Debbie. The hotel has a lovely character and has all the mod cons you expect these days. Our room was spotless clean and comfortable. Their breakfast is freshly cooked and tastes superb. The location is ideal with the marina, pubs,restaurants and shopping center all within easy reach.Gary and Debbie's knowledge of the area is very helpful.We enjoyed our stay very much and plan to return in the future.The area has a lot to offer and the river trip down the river Dart to Dartmouth and the return trip on a vintage stream train was excellent.Hope to return to the Shirley the next time we are in the area.

I visited recently with my girlfriend and have to say it it was an extremely welcoming hotel. Gary and the team run an extremely efficient operation and everyone is so helpful and friendly. The team cannot do enough to assist you and Gary always has time to give advice on places to visit and local attractions should you need some local knowledge. The room was spacious, clean and the building was very nice. The breakfast was very tasty. I will be recommending the hotel to family and friends.
