My husband and I stayed for two nights. Our room (number 8) was poor. Clean enough but definitely in need a bit of upgrading. However, it was quiet. We ate in the Bar the first evening and had to wait for 45mins for our starters to appear. There was a similar time lapse for our mains. I would like to... More

We stayed at the Lamb two years ago and had no hesitation in booking again. Just before our trip I noticed the reviews on here and was quite worried. I shouldnt have been. I think it has had a few problems since our last visit but now is back on track. The hotel is an old building with character. The... More

We stayed for two nights and our experience was very positive. We had room 9 which, ok, overlooked the car park, but had a great view of the cathedral from our bed! The room was large, clean and comfortable, if a little tired. Breakfast was good, the staff, especially housekeeping were very pleasant. The location was brilliant, and the bill... More

we booked a superior room and ended up with room 15. The bumph says these rooms either have sleigh beds or four posted.. We had a queen or king sized bed pushed up against an old double headboard. Although on the first floor we had a well use (?staff entrance?) passage way beside the bedroom window with no privacy whatsoever... More

on our first trip to this establishment for Sunday lunch we where disappointed with the food. The meal took along time to come and the beef was tough and hardly edible. Initially one item was missing on the plate, but this was rectified, but took so long to arrive and was not cooked properly, so ruined the dish. We witnessed... More

Ely is one of my favourite cities - it has a lot of charm, and is a small enough size for you to get to know all it has to offer. I was actually on a business trip to Cambridge and I decided not to stay in St Ives, but try Ely instead. I'm pleased I did - the drive... More

The Lamb was clean. The staff was helpful. There is no lift and all the rooms are upstairs, but they did carry up our heavy suitcases. The room was very hot and we had to ask the staff to come unlock the windows to open them. Room cooled off quickly after that. Was a bit noisy from outside traffic. Breakfast... More

I hesitated before booking this hotel as it had such mixed reviews. So when we arrived and received a warm welcome we started to feel a lot happier. It is an old building and the standard of accomodation reflects this but our room was very clean comfortable and we had all we we needed. You are going to get traffic... More

This hotel is incredibly close to Ely Cathedral (one of the most beautiful Norman Cathedrals I have visited in the UK & I'm originally from Durham....that takes some 'conquering'). The Staff at the hotel is extremely friendly and customer focused............from check-in, to a great pub style lunch and bar service, to check out the following morning. Our room was a... More
