Took a bit of a risk on this one; beds in Ely were short due to the annual folk festival where we were appearing. Read reviews and still book, on arrival owners were rowing in front of guests - he lost and became grumpy. The appraisal of Fawlty Towers was correct, best part of stay was breakfast - this did...

A warm welcome awaits at this charming B&B located close to the city centre. The place had a really relaxing vibe. The room was clean and well equipped and had a lovely view over the well kept garden. There was a lounge, bar area, as well as an outside seated area. The dinning room was where the excellent breakfast was... More

Lovely bed and breakfast. Staff very helpful. Rooms were clean and very comfortable,obviously a lot of thought has gone into what they think there guests will need during their stay. Bathroom clean and the most beautiful towels! Breakfast delicious.

Our room was comfortable and immaculately clean. Staff pleasant and helpful. Good breakfast - I asked for, and was given, a vegetarian sausage. The Nyton is ideally placed for a visit to Ely, being 5 minutes' walk from the city centre.

We stayed 3 nights visiting Ely, in this good value, comfortable, well located 4* Guest House. We were a little concerned after reading some of the comments on Trip Advisor but were very pleasantly surprised and relieved to find it such a nice place to stay, I cannot imagine what others meant about poor service, room shabbiness etc. etc, what...

We stayed in room two for a one night stay. The price for two people for bed and breakfast is not unreasonable. The Nyton is easy to find and has free parking. The rooms are a little out of date, everything is included iron, ironing board, hairdryer, tea, coffee, hot chocolate. The bed was very comfortable, the shower room was... More

Just returned from stay at Ely and, I think, a lovely guesthouse. Not sure about some previous comments. Fawlty Towers it is not! Very clean and quiet area. Lovely a la carte breakfast. Friendly staff. Lovely spacious room and clean. Decor I found to be more classic and that suits a 46 year old! Cannot fault it at all and... More

It is15 minutes walk to the pleasant riverside where you can have a choice of restaurants The Cutter being our favourite. The staff were very... More

Beautiful building in lovely own grounds. Short walk from cathedral so very convenient. Friendly receptionist. Comfy, clean and newly decorated rooms Ensuite area in both our rooms were rather small and only had a shower [we should have insisted on a bath] but for one night was more than adequate. Fabulous breakfast - help yourself cereals and hot food area... More

This place is not your average hotel. It has been compared with Fawlty Towers - but who wouldn't want to stay at Fawlty Towers given a chance? Go with an open mind and you will enjoy the experience I have stayed there on three occasions - the owner is always harrassed and overworked - but bear with him and he... More
