This small hotel offers excellent service and luxurious facilities. The main attraction is the chef who produces superb delicious food. The owners are very welcoming and their attention to detail is paramount. An excellent place to stay and eat in Shaftesbury Dorset

Very nice little hotel, exactly the style and atmosphere one would expect from a hotel in a rural English village. The room I had was clean and tidy. I heard the restaurant is excellent however I didn't have time to dine here, I did have the breakfast however and it was very good. I will definitely return the next time... More

A pleasant hotel with a somewhat old fashioned feel that bordered on being simply old. The main issue for us was the total lack of atmosphere both in terms of the welcome (impersonal) and the ambiance (stifled). Whilst appreciating it was early on the Saturday evening when we came down to the bar (about 7pm) there was no other guest... More

Simply some of the best service and food I have ever eaten. Loved this place. We will be returning. Thought the prices were very resonable for the food they had created and cooked. The wine selection was very good

We were visiting Shaftesbury, so looked on Tripadvisor to see what they recommended. After reading all the reviews we decided to stay overnight at La Fleur de Lys. As soon as we arrived we were made to feel welcome, we had afternoon tea and apple cake which was out of this world! Later in the evening we had the most... More

This is billed as a restaurant with rooms, and it is precisely that, but the rooms are beautiful with great facilities. They have a desk and a laptop for your use in every room. It is warm despite being so old. And the food is excellent if a tad expensive for dinner. Friendly family run. Great find.
