Our biggest problem was visiting the restaurant for a party of four for an evening meal, choosing from a basic menu we was told five choices was not available, one of the party choose something that was available was then told after 25min this was also...

Having enjoyed our lunch at The Lamb on a previous visit to Ely some 3 years ago, my husband and I decided that it was the place to eat on Saturday. Big mistake! We arrived just before 11.30 and got a drink before looking through the menu, which offered a good choice of meals. Hubby trotted off to place our... More

The hotel is staffed by friendly staff and the rooms are adequate and clean. The catering however leaves a great deal to be desired. We were asked to choose our evening meal in advance which should have meant good hot food. This was not the case, some meals were tepid, there were no cloths or condiments on the table and... More

Visited the Lamb Hotel on 6 May, 2015 for lunch as the hotel is nicely situated in the midst of the attractions. It seemed quite busy so thought it must be quite popular. The hotel is very spacious but it was very cold and my husband and I had to eat with our coats on. The carpet was also dirty... More

Oh dear oh dear - they literally can't boil an egg -it would have fared as well on a tennis court as a breakfast plate. Staff lovely but food terrible. My room was OK but the windows haven't been cleaned for years. When I checked in at 8.30pm on a Monday the bar smelt of disinfectant with yellow plastic signs... More

We visited Ely on bank holiday Monday. The Lamb is close to the cathedral so seemed a good place to have lunch. We both ordered lamb shanks which were to come with sugar snap peas, Chantilly carrots and Peas ( why peas twice?). The service was quite good and the staff friendly. The lamb shanks were quite tough and not... More

I actually booked six rooms online for this hotel with a company credit card and thought no more about it. It was for business visitors and i wanted them to feel comfortable and know that their stay was paid for. So i opted for the prepay option on Hotels.com. On the night I met the group in the hotel and... More

Hotel.com and Expedia are the same company and you are correct that is a pre-paid booking. We will be speaking to the duty managers and receptionist to make sure that this... More
