We have driven past many times and finally booked Sunday lunch, the owners were very welcoming and friendly and to be quite honest after reading their web page didn't expect anything else. We had starters and mains and all were totally delicious and beautifully presented. We prefer less formal now but that's our preference and we had some very loud... More

Stayed here over the May bank holiday. First class experience! Gorgeous room - we paid a little extra for the four poster. Spacious room and bathroom. Breakfast was excellent and we had dinner in the restauant all 3 nights. Food was superb! Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend!

We stayed for one night whilst attending a large family event nearby and left the following day with a very positive impression. If we ever need to stay in Shaftesbury, or close by, again this will certainly be top of our list. The rooms were tastefully decorated with some nice additions like the fresh milk in the fridge and quality... More

Inspired by the views of other Trip Advisers I booked a dinner bed and breakfast for my wife and I as we were on our way from Shropshire to south Dorset and we were so impressed. Like the emphasis "Restaurant with Rooms"but the lovely four poster bedded room was equally as good as the food and the hospitality. Mary David... More

Stayed here one night, while visiting family. Lovely hotel, warm and cosy, spotlessly clean and very welcoming. Attention to detail is second to none, and a real focus on the customer. Free WiFi everywhere (bigger hotels take note!), bath robes, fresh milk for in room tea (clipper tea - hurrah!), and real coffee. Entrance to car park very narrow, our... More

A sudden visit from a business colleague prompted the need for a lunch somewhere local and good. With Shaftesbury being only 10 minutes away and having passed La Fleur de Lys many times, it seemed worth a phone call. My enquiry met with a very positive response, so we were on our way! Immediately upon entry, we realised we had... More

We were looking for somewhere in Wiltshire, with good food, to stay for a night en route further west and found La Fleur de Lys on line. Our room was comfortable but rather small and bathroom cramped, however larger rooms are available. Dinner in restaurant lived up to all our expectations, certainly the best hotel restaurant meal for many a... More

This is a restaurant with rooms above. Not any old restaurant, mind you. Two AA rosettes - the only one in Shaftesbury. Rooms are not particularly cheap, but for what they are are decent value. The place is old-country-English, beside a road that does not particularly disturb, close by the pretiiest parts of Shaftesbury and Salisbury a short drive away..... More
