A group of friends decided to have a midweek meal to celebrate a birthday. We arrived a bit early so we were shown to some seats, asked if we wanted drinks and given menus to peruse. Our orders were taken and we were then shown to our table . The staff were very friendly and efficient and the food was...

An underestimated, small hotel in shuffling distance of all that is Shaftesbury. Whilst drinking in a local pub and having talked to those who work locally, I found everyone knows the great reputation without actually having sampled the food (don't waste any more time). My room is lovely and the daily room reset has an attention to detail, leaving your...

It is always a treat to eat at La Fleur de Lys. Such delicious food, in a warm setting, and excellent service. A cosy space to enjoy a pre-dinner drink is to your left from the front door, & dining area to the right. A Great Husband & Wife Team, makes this really work well. A perfect place for a...

To be honest this is the first review I have left after staying at a crazy amount of hotels through business and family. Shaftesbury is a tiny little really antique town. I had just come from staying at big hotels on the USA and Germany so it was a little weird first entering a hotel that was so different in...

We checked in to the rooms above the Fleur de Lys in Shaftesbury, with very little notice... and were fortunate enough to grab the last two places for the special New Year's Eve dinner. David, the owner, produced a fabulous, inspired 5 course dinner for about 50 guests with the help of a single assistant. This is a lovely restaurant...

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...
