Crystal structure determination of the title complex reveals that the dimethylformamide solvent is bound to the carboxylic function of the hydroxy acid, in the form of a 7-membered hydrogen-bonded loop involving both the expected O-H⋯O and an apparently weak C-H⋯O interaction between host and guest. There is a strong intramolecular hydrogen bond between the phenolic OH and the carbonyl oxygen. Close packing of the complex units is afforded by a herringbone type alignment of host molecules.
