Excellend double superior room for us and very chique standard room for our daughter. Very good breakfast and a fantastic position in the center of Shaftesbury with everything at walking distance. Great service! David and Mary, the owners are very kind and helpful! Highly recommended hotel!

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. It was a great start to the day but it's a shame our plans meant we could eat dinner there too as it prides itself as a restaurant with rooms,... More

My husband and I have just spend two evenings, bed and breakfast and one evening meal at the Fleur de Lys whilst visiting relatives in the area. The friendly but professional service that we received was second to none. We would highly recommend the Fleur de Lys. Jacqueline and Nigel Cooper

We spent two days here and had a very enjoyable stay. La Fleur de Lys calls itself a restaurant with rooms but is every inch an excellent hotel.

This hotel advertises itself as 'Restaurant with Rooms'. In fact my room was :comfortable, spotlessly clean with thick warm towels. The evening menu provided interesting options and the fish I chose was first class. The range of vegetables which accompanied the fish were roasted and delicious. As a solo elderly visitor I felt very relaxed and easy in this hotel.

The accommodation was very nice but the food was even better. A superb evening meal, beautifully prepared and presented. Even though we were the only couple staying that night the service was friendly and not rushed. The staff could not have been more helpful.

This is a cosy little hotel in quiet Dorset. We received a warm welcome, on what was a very cold and gloomy day (for us!!)...after a lavish traditional English tea, we were treated to a wonderful meal in the restaurant. Breakfast was sumptuous and tasty and service throughout was attentive and efficient. Highly recommended.
