“Amazing food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2013

We were taken here by my Mum and her partner the food and service were amazing. I hadnt dined somwhere so good for ages. The puddings were particularly amazing, the souffle with mint sauce was out of this world. The mains were really good too, venision is always a draw for me on a menu. I didnt opt for a starter as I didnt want to risk missing out on the pudding.....definately the best option for me. I certainly didnt leave hungry. The cheese plate was a very delicious option when shared between two of us. Cant wait to go again.

My husband and I have been to La Fleur de Lys many times. It is our restaurant of choice whenever we wish to celebrate an event, or just fancy a delicious meal with excellent service and lovely surroundings. The food is always tremendous and the whole evening spent at the restaurant extremely enjoyable. I can't recommend it highly enough. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, who are friendly and very helpful. I can't wait to go back!

We have had the last two weekends in Dorset and wrote a review for last weeks stay elsewhere,what a contrast the stays were just a few miles apart but the quality of this weekends stay was miles ahead.From the moment of stepping inside the door it felt special and so it was everywhere was absolutely immaculate from the reception area,to the bar,stairs,restaurant and the room itself,excellent details we couldnt fault it!.One would assume that the management and staff have great pride in their proffession .The restaurant is comfortable and spacious,beautifully laid tables,real napkins and again excellent staff with great attention to detail! Initially we were only going to eat in for one evening but based on the quality of the service and food we ate in both evenings.All in all one of the best stays we have had anywhere and we would definately recommend it.

Room Tip: we had a standard room and i have no doubt that all of the rooms are excellent

As my brother was an Olympic torch bearer we were so lucky to find this gem. A lovely hotel, with very comfortable rooms, with thoughtful extras as a laptop with free wi-fi, a fridge, homemade shortbread, fress milk, toiletries. We ate in the restaurant and the food was delicious. David and Mary couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful and David was very kind and drove my brother to his meeting point for the Olympic route. As I didn't have the time to look around Shaftesbury or the surrounding area as much as I wanted to, what I did see was beautiful, I definitely plan another visit to this wonderful hotel.

Room Tip: The Sauvignon room with double bed was perfect for me on my own, slept very well, nice and quiet.

We spent a superb weekend at the hotel. The staff are very friendly and efficient, the service is simply exceptional in an old fashioned way.

The bedroom was superbly appointed and incedibly clean, with a comfortable bed and a very nice bathroom.

Breakfast is extreremely good and included in the room price, but is nothing compared to the evening meal, which for the price is exceptional, actually it would be very good for any price!!

I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel / restuarant to anybody, it is a fine example of a "hidden gem".

Stayed two nights at La Fleur de Lys on a recent business trip with an American colleague to the Shaftesbury area. Rooms were very comfortable, and breakfast and dinner excellent both nights. We had thought about eating elsewhere the second night, but the allure of the souffle was enough for us to return to La Fleur de Lys after a walk around the town.
