Had the pleasure of staying for a short break /getaway end of jan. Really enjoyed our time there.though the weather could have been a lot better! But not much the lovely hosts could do about that. Lots of little extra touches that help to raise it above the similar accommodation available in Torquay, starting with a very warm welcome and...

We enjoyed our stay at The Shirley. Upon arrival Nick, the owner, was friendly, offered us drinks and showed us to our room. It's just a 10 minute walk into the main town and harbour with many restaurants to choose from. We visited Kents Cavern Prehistoric Caves which took about 20 minutes to walk to and also Living Coasts zoo...

Navigating to the hotel was easy using GPS. That said, it would not have been too difficult to find, even if we didn’t have GPS. The hotel is situated about 5 minutes walking distance from the harbour. There are numerous places to enjoy a nice meal between the hotel and the harbour, but more of that in another review. We...

Just returned after four nights at this lovely hotel, very clean, owners friendly, breakfast superb, also lots of little extras such as bottled water in room, tea tray with choice of tea, coffee or hot chocolate plus biscuits. Room comfortable and warm. The only slight negative is the amount of time to wait before the shower water becomes hot.
