The Shirley is a beautifully presented twelve bedroom hotel. It was built in the French style as the summer residence of a wealthy family and retains many of the features that boast of the riches and culture of Victorian England. The guest accommodation consists of twelve ensuite bedrooms, situated on the first and second floors. One of these rooms is used for storage, a further three are currently used by the owner. The owners accommodation, two bedrooms, a kitchen diner and a lounge, is situated on the ground and mezzanine floors. It can be accessed both from the internal hallway and independently from the sun deck. The Shirley, like many Victorian villas, faces south. To the front of the building lies a large carpark.

LOCATION

The Shirley is perfectly positioned.  It is only a short stroll to the harbour and seafront, but  far enough back from the main road to avoid all the noise that night time in a popular tourist town brings.  The main attractions of Torquay are easily managed on foot.

 

BUSINESS

The hotel has been the subject of a rolling program of refurbishment. Most of the public areas have recently been redecorated to a high standard. Six of the bedrooms have been refurbished and redecorated within the last two years. The business has a loyal following of repeat custom and is also exposed successfully to third party sites such as Expedia and Booking.com.   Our clients trade only eight of the available rooms for a little over seven months of the year.  There is much scope to expand the business should you so desire.  Recent and historical trading accounts will be made available after a successful formal viewing.
