Got a great deal for 2 nights through English inns and was pleasantly surprised. Lovely area to visit with plenty to see. Hotel was great, loved the little sitting area and huge bed. Really accommodating staff who were great when my hubby lost the room key!!! Gorgeous brekkie. All in all a great stay. Thanks.

After 30 minutes we saw people who came in after us... More

Decided to have a home cooked lunch in a local pub while shopping in Ely. Pub was large, also a hotel with plenty of parking for guests. First impressions, nice local pub. Ordered our meals, to start with we opted for two soups, Brocolli & Stilton, with crusty bread. Two soups delivered, one pipeing hot, the other cold. Not a... More

I stayed here for three weeks while I was doing a course in the Ely area, all the staff are brilliant. So the place is old and tired in some places but anything the staff can do they do to rectify any problems. Rhi, Simon and the whole team were brilliant made me feel at home, as it can be... More

We visited Ely and popped into The Lamb which was a bonus for us as we have a dog, we were allowed in the beautiful bar area and had coffee and cake. Staff were very welcoming happy and friendly nothing was too much trouble we shall certainly look at staying here with our dog on our next visit to Ely

I have to say our stay was wonderful. I'm in the Hotel industry myself so I can be a tad picky! But The Lamb didn't disappoint. Upon check in I was greeted by Rhi she was smart and professional, great sense of humour. She helped with our bags, booked us a taxi, booked us a table in the restaurant too.... More

This place just gets worse. After checking the website for the menu to ensure gluten free food was available imagine my annoyance at being told there were only 2 options and only 1 of those was a vegetarian option. We were sat underneath a crumbling ceiling and the service was diabolical staff spoke little English and could have claimed my... More

This is essentially a traditional, old-fashioned inn that's been extended and improved rather than a purpose built modern hotel. So it doesn't necessarily come with all the mod cons you'd expect from a typical chain. However, for what it is, it does it very well. The staff are uniformly helpful and friendly, the rooms are comfortable and the food is... More

Stopped in on a really cold and blowy November day for Sunday lunch for 3 adults and a teen. Good food selection, nicely presented, tasty and hot - reasonable value. Really nice staff - friendly, quick and cheerful. Bar prices ok. Great spot to relax before / after a visit to the cathedral.
