    • Nice 3 night stay

      Reviewed 07 August 2019

      We stayed at the Shirley for 3 nights (25 - 27 Aug 2019) for a weekend break for 4 of us (2 couples), The hotel was good, nice friendly welcome from Nick & Chen, the rooms were great, clean, coffee/tea making facilities replenished daily as well as fresh bottles of water every day also clean bathroom towels each day. We would book the Shirley again, but be warned it is at the top of a long hill (but it's Torquay it's mostly hills) we managed it OK and our age group is 67 - 69.

    • Absolutely loveable!

      Reviewed 20 July 2019

      Came to Torquay as a step down my personal Memory Lane, visited 45 years ago, and never back since. I always prefer to stay in independent hotels, and was lucky to find the Shirley, and even luckier that they actually did have a room for us. Easy to find, good and safe parking, and just a few minutes walk from the vibrant harbour area. The house is lovely, and takes you back easily 150 years while standing and just admiring it. The same feeling prevails when you step inside, welcomed by the loveliest couple Ive ever met running a B&B, Nick and Chen. Sat down for a chat, and Nick literally walked us through everything we needed to know, about the Shirley, about Torquay, and even a few historical items. Got the room, on the top floor, and it turned out to be a very nice and comfy one, not huge, but definitely spacious enough for our three night stay. Well equipped, perfectly clean, and the most important: excellent beds! The breakfast is mentioned in many of the reviews, and I can only agree, just second to none! All-in-all, an excellent B&B for the stay, and definitely our choice for our next stay in Torquay, too - I would even go as far to say, a good reason for returning to Torquay!
