Just returned home from a trip to Ely, Cambridgeshire. Stayed at a gem of a hotel called The Lamb. From arrival to booking out the staff couldn't do enough. Breakfast was included, plenty to choose from and very tasty. Our room was in the stable block next to the car park. Bed was very comfy, bath and shower. Plenty of... More

My wife and I along with 4 friends have just stayed for 2 nights B&B on Fri and Sat 20th - 21st Feb. The hotel accommodation was fine to good but unfortunately the breakfast was poor at best (cold). We complained to the management after the first breakfast and we're reassured that it wouldn't happen again well it did ---... More

Visited Ely for the cathedral and stopped at the Lamb hotel two nights. It is a good hotel centrally located. Friendly staff. Hotel met our needs. Would recommend to others if stopping in the city. Be aware that there isn't a lift but we knew that before we went. Got it's own car park which is a bonus.

Room small but very clean. Bathroom not brilliant, pet hate of glass shelf directly above sink making washing virtually impossible. Also strange smell of smoke in non-smoking room. Food ok but nothing special but overall hotel is overpriced for what you get.

We booked a number of rooms for a wedding. Staff sorted out all of the minor issues we encountered.Breakfasts very good but we ate elsewhere so can't comment on their evening meals.Parking can be an issue in Ely so check with hotel beforehand as the hotel car park quite small.

I have lived in the area for years but needed a room at late notice. The price was excellent through a late room deal online. The rooms are dated but fine and the staff were all very friendly and enthusiastic. Unfortunately, the service at breakfast was poor as most tables had to ask for things again and the waitress doubled... More

The breakfast was good but my cooked full English was slightly salty and the rasher of bacon and sausage was definitely salty. the egg was nicely cooked not greasy or over done. We had... More

We stayed one night and wanted to be central to make the most of exploring the city. The Lamb is right in the middle, near the shops and cathedral - an old (?Georgian) building - probably an old coaching stop originally. The interior has traditional elements (panelling) with modern decoration - big print wallpapers. Our room No35 was off the... More

I was working in Ely recently so stayed at The Lamb Hotel for one night. Everything was fine... The room seemed clean at first (though on closer inspection the bathroom could have done with more of a spring clean). The location is great, right in the town centre and was very quiet at night. The room was nice and warm... More

I was staying as a solo traveller at this hotel. My room was clean and tidy, as was the bathroom. I found the bed comfortable and the sheets were nice and warm. The staff in the afternoon were not as friendly/effective as the staff in the morning but overall I found it quite sufficient for a short break.
