We also went through Travel Zoo - as soon as we had been warmly greeted by Mark, he asked if we would like fresh milk for our bedroom - that set the standard for the stay! A lovely room, Dorset Blue, with a tray containing a cafetiere, fresh coffee decaff and ordinary plus every tea you could think of! DVD's were available from the landing and magazines were provided in the room. There was a small settee and a pull out wall mounted flat screen TV. We had pre dinner drinks in the lounge and played jenga, one of the many puzzles and games available, then after choosing our meal from the excellent menu we went through to the dining room. We had a very very good meal - the cod was the best I have tasted and the cheese board, as already mentioned, was excellent and every cheese was explained by Mark. Our bed was extremely comfortable with high quality cotton sheets and a feather duvet. We found Mark and Emmanuele very welcoming and the stay at their family home was delightful. I would thoroughly recommend La Fosse.

We were given a voucher from Travelzoo for a 3 course meal and, although local to us, we had never been before.
We found the service to be excellent right from the moment we walked through the door and all of our food was very tasty and well presented. I also went for the award winning cheeseboard which didn't disappoint with 9 different cheeses which were all explained upon serving what they were.
With a homely feel and a very welcoming atmosphere, I can thoroughly recommend a visit. We will definitely be back.

We've stayed at this delightful small hotel twice now, and can warmly recommend it. They have invested in really top notch, comfortable, generous-sized beds and the food is great. They are slowly renovating it, keeping all the lovely historic features, but adding luxurious, contemporary shower rooms and bathrooms. Downstairs there are two stylish seating areas, where you can find lots of information on what to do in the area. The owners were really helpful and friendly, and we would go back any time.

Room Tip: If you like a really big bed, ask for Old Sarum. If you prefer a bath to a shower, there is another room (I can't remember the name of it) which has one.

Lovely people, great room with very comfortable huge bed, lovely bathroom etc. in a beautiful old building. Very peaceful and pleasant restaurant, slow service, but only because meals were cooked to order - fine for us as we were here for the evening anyway. Meal was nice, lots of local products, mostly supplied from within Dorset, and the cheese board had about 10 cheeses - all local.
