Ely Guest House is in a great location very close to the main part of town. It is a very old building and should be a fabulous place to stay but there are none of the comforts one would like. You enter via a narrow red door. If no one answers the bell you visit the Thai restaurant next door... More

Ely guesthouse is a lovely guesthouse in the central of Ely and is run by a lovely young couple. It is but a short walk from the Cathedral and town centre is not difficult to find. The bedroom was first class with tea and coffee making facilities and there was a large flat screen tv on the wall. Car parking... More

The room was quite nice, but even though I booked both at the at the same time under my name , they put my friends in ANOTHER LOCKED BUILDING and then refused to give either party a key to each others' building, so we couldn't even pound on each others' doors in order to communicate about plans for the next...

The customer service I received at this place merits a 5 star big fail negative. I booked this believing it to be a B&B. Arrived to find this isn't a hotel or a B & B, its a private door accessed set of unserviced rooms above a Thai restaurant. Perhaps once it was a sort of pub or hotel in... More

Room - TV remote not working, TV stuck on one channel and couldn't be changed as buttons broken. Carpet made up of three pieces put... More

Apart from location everything was terrible . Had a twin room booked for one night (lucky us ). The house was so dated ,dark and gloomy with extremely low ceiling on staircase . Our room had two single beds with fabric headboards which were filthy, the green carpet was dirty and a rail on the wall as a wardrobe !... More

What a dreadful place! Our fears were first aroused when we went, as directed by a scruffy sign on the front door, to the local Thai restaurant to collect the keys. We were immediately invited to pay, which we declined to do as we had not viewed the room. We were duly led to Room 6, located on the 2nd... More

The Guest House is in a perfect location next to the cathedral and the high street. It is 10-15 minutes by foot from the rail station. Our room (8) was not above the Thai restaurant (as pictured when you look at the trip advisor site). It was at the back, with a different entrance, by the parking (for guests), and... More

There is a reason why the staff at this place insist on taking your money up front. They are savvy enough to know that if you stayed there first you wouldn't bother paying the price they are asking. Don't get me wrong, the staff are lovely and couldn't be more pleasant however, the accommodation leaves rather a lot to be... More

This place has quite an odd setup, it has a few rooms above the thai restaraunt (the two are linked and run together) and then two additional 'flats' round the corner. I stayed in one of them. It was quite modern and well decorated. good TV, and tea and coffee facilities. the bathroom was clean and modern, but small so... More
