I discovered the Fleur de Lys by accident when trying to book three rooms for a family weekend away, not an easy task to find somewhere on a late summer weekend at relatively short notice. What a find! The rooms were immaculate with everything you could possibly want and the evening meal in the restaurant was to die for. Anyone...

We stayed in this B&B as part of our On Foot Holiday. We found it very comfortable and clean. The bath in our room was very welcome after a day of walking. The staff were friendly and the B&B is well located.

This is a great restaurant. We had a venison dish with apricots that was spot-on. The souffle pudding was also spectacular. The service is top-drawer and the surroundings splendid. I was surprised that the bill was a small as it was too- fantastic. If I am in this area again I will certainly be back. Thanks.

We needed a place to stay in Shaftesbury for a wedding but left booking to the last minute. I was really worried this was going to be an overpriced b&b but it massively surpassed my expectations. I would describe it as more like a boutique hotel. We arrived far earlier than the advertised check in time but the staff were...

We stayed here just one night for a weekend event nearby. We chose this place particularly because it had secure off street parking that was important to us.

Attractive hotel with charming rooms themed by different types of wine. It's got a lovely lounge and bar area which flows in to a restaurant where we only had breakfast.
