We had a very short stay at the Fleur de Lys, as we used it as a stopover for the Great Dorset Steam Fair. But from our brief experience we found this an excellent place to stay. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful and our room (Sauvignon) was furnished to a very high standard and very clean.... More

Unfortunately we only stayed one night, wish it could have been more but if we visit the area again we will definitely stay again. The owners, premises and food are all superb. We were made very welcome and shown to a beautiful room, After looking around the area we decided that we would also dine in, too. Good decision. The... More

We stayed for one night, as a family group sharing three rooms. The rooms were comfortable and very well-equipped, we appreciated the real coffee and fresh milk. The bathrooms were very compact but again had everything we needed. The food was very good, as it was quite a special meal for us, a rare chance to get together, it was... More

Being "oh so British", one likes to see fair play. We had Sunday lunch the same day as your reviewer "Constance" on the 23rd March. We had the smoked salmon as a starter, followed by the Sirloin Beef, both of which were excellent. It was a most enjoyable meal. As for the service, nothing was too much trouble and we... More

Oh dear! Upon reflection we should have known better, the menu on the web site was a month out of date. On arrival for Sunday lunch we were seated by a nice warm fire, presented with the menus by the pleasant young waitress, to peruse while we waited for our drinks. The room was so dark it was difficult to... More

We stayed at La Fleur de Lys for a night in January, It is a beautiful little place, spotlessly clean, lovely food and excellent rooms. Everything is thought of, even a PC in the room. Thoroughly recommended, we will go again when we are in the area.

First the positive: The Fleur de Lys is in a lovely building in a lovely part of Shaftesbury. The breakfast was delicious, and everyone I saw leaving the restaurant was pleased. Now the bad: The staff have no sense of hospitality, particularly the owner. I stayed over the Christmas holiday and would have expected people to be friendlier. First, on... More
