“Excellent customer care and a great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

We spent a week at the Shirley hotel. The room was spacious enough for two people. The bathroom was spotless and so was the whole hotel. Gorge, the owner, was always willing to go to the extra mile to please us. They provided adapters, a small fridge and even scale, always with a smile.
I only wish the breakfast was more varied. English breakfast was good but a bit boring after a while. Some pancakes would have been nice. The jam selection was excellent and all the products were top quality.

We were only here for a day and everything was clean, tidy, quiet, and we had free parking . . . all within walking distance of the town, sea front and variety of restaurants. Could not fault anything and would not look anywhere else if we return in the future.

Our son bought us a voucher to spend on a short break. We wanted to visit the Bournemouth area and we set about finding a dog friendly hotel in a central location.The Shirley Hotel fitted the bill the lady that answered my call was very helpful and I felt comfortable the hotel would be fine.We was not disappointed the room was very clean and well appointed, breakfast was very good,we parked in the hotels carpark which was free of charge! The owner was on hand to give us information about the local area and was very friendly nothing was too much trouble.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone its not 5* but its very good value for money.

My daughter and I had a short break in Bournemouth and stayed at The Shirley. We had a lovely room. It was clean and tidy. Off street parking which was a bonus. Breakfast was lovely and there was a good choice. Jorge was very friendly and made sure we had enough to eat, and was happy to give us a variation on the cooked breakfast ie beans on toast rather than the full english. Would happily go there again and recommend it to friends.
