I booked this before checking TripAdvisor, and expected a real dive after the bad comments! I even took the precaution of bringing a loo roll...but it was no problem. It is NOT a hotel, nor is it a B&B. It is rented bedroom area, some of them en-suite. The good point is its location - right by the traffic lights... More

A very basic room with minimal facilities, although the room was quite large. However, the room was quite dark as it only had a small window which faced a very narrow alley.No bottled water as advertised, although there were tea and coffee making facilities. No car-parking facilities on site, although because I am a "blue badge" holder, I was able... More

Accomodated in annexe, room quite large but bed not very comfortable & only one pillow per person. Shower screen was broken, toilet seat was loose as was the towel rail. Getting hold of "reception" not easy. In its favour, very close to High Street & Cathedral.

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

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
