We stayed for 3 nights in this hotel while visiting Ely and Cambridge. The hotel is in its own grounds adjacent to the golf course and even saw a deer walk through on 2 nights. 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

Stayed 3 nights to use as a base for a bit of a taste of Cambridgeshire. Made to feel welcome from the word go by the manager and this continued throughout our stay. This is an old house with some creaks and a few draughts when the wind gets up but heated very well so you don't feel cold. Room... More

This place is nicely secluded away from the main thoroughfares in Ely. I cannot say much else to recommend it sadly. 1. Seemed anxious to take our orders and get rid of us 2. The chicken was undercooked and late in being served 3. The retaurant was drafty 4. The service was below standard 5. Some sweets were ordered but... More

We stayed at the Nyton on a business trip. The bedroom was beautifully warm, unlike Premier Inn or Travelodge. We arrived after a long drive, were not keen to go out to eat so the owner offered to cook for us. The meal was freshly cooked and excellent. We only saw the owner, the chef and receptionist all were very... More

Unfortunately I have to agree with many other reviews. This place is tired and shabby in public areas and our room was dated, with a rather cramped ensuite bathroom - towel rail placed next to toilet - which burnt my unsuspecting wife! The real problem is that the place seems understaffed. Our room was handed over two and a quarter... More

My wife and I dined here with some friends for our annual Xmas get together And once again was not disappointed. The set price for a 3 course Xmas meal had gone up a little over the previous year and the free glass of prosseco was conspicuous by its absence the smoked salmon starter was excellent and the main courses...

When the food arrived it wasn't organised, there was the owner and one member of staff to serve us all, the food was slow to come out and we were constantly missing things and having to... More

My review is of a family Ruby Wedding celebration held yesterday, at which my wife and I were guests. (As we live locally, we have not stayed at the hotel, so cannot comment on the rooms, breakfasts, etc.) We thoroughly enjoyed this family celebration for 30 guests, for which the hotel organised the dining room for our sole use and...
