VERY basic room, tea and coffee making facilities, but cannot fill the kettle in the sink. The bathroom was VERY small. It was not clear that cash had to be paid and that there was no breakfast included. Expensive for the one night and NEVER again.

I should have read my Booking.com confirmation more carefully! It did state that payment in cash would have to be made on arrival, and that there was no breakfast. Both these things came as a surprise when I checked in. Credit cards are not accepted - luckily my friend and I had enough cash to cope, but it could easily... More

We found the rooms and service upon check in were really friendly. The rooms are lovely as well for the price it was pretty good quality. We wished it came with breakfast and car parking. To be fair it does state that on their website. Nonetheless, if we ever came back to this area this would be our go to... More

Upon arrival we were directed into the Thai restaurant next door but watch the first step otherwise you will end up on the floor. The young lady who met us was very pleasant and she she took us to our room. The room was VERY basic, and dated with dark wood paneling on the ceiling which made the room quite... More

Ely Guest House has a convenient location in Ely, but offers only a basic room with no frills. There is no lift to the 3rd floor rooms, the rooms on the back facing the courtyard can hear the rock band from the adjacent pub, and there is a rooster that crows each morning.We were supplied with 3 small towels for...

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.
