The courtyard room was an absolute delight and the staff were extremely helpful. Lovely breakfast and excellent location, particularly for the Cathedral. Try the walk through the park (access just beyond the Cathedral entrance) down to the river. Hotel very good value for money

Looked at this hotel many times before but it's previously booked due to its location and popularity so we pre booked some 4 months ago. Pleasantly surprised at how nice the rooms were (room 34 annex ground floor) everything looked new and a very clean and functional bathroom with good shower. Settee and chair to sit on and good flat... More

We have just returned from a one night stay at the Lamb with two small children. We had a newly decorated, ground floor room in the courtyard. The room was clean, comfortable and given it's location very quiet! We managed to get a car parking space, this was limited, however, the manager seemed to be trying his best to accommodate... More

This was a pleasure break to attend a wedding. The Lamb was booked as it was central to Ely and right next to the magnificent cathedral. It is classed as a 3 star hotel but I would rate it as a 2 star one. The hotel is tired and could do with a refurbishment. The room was OK. And served... More

Thank you for your review. We appreciate all feedback we receive and use it to better The Lamb, we are already looking into sprucing the place up a little bit. Lack of parking is something we are unable to do much about but as you mentioned there is parking around Ely which is free overnight. We do hope you visit... More

Hotel is centrally located. Ideal to see the sights of Ely. The amenities are fairly basic. Rooms are decorated from another decade which I guess adds to the charm. No air con as you would imagine and so can be uncomfortable sleeping in the warm nights. Parking is extremely restricted but available offsite nearby. Breakfasts were fine. Staff are really... More

Stayed at the Lamb Hotel in June - Im reviewing the hotel, not the restaurant as I didn't eat there other than breakfast. Good location in Ely next to the cathedral - nice building with good décor in the bar and restaurant, creating a good environment. The room was a standard room and was enormous - it had a sleeping...

My wife, sister- in- law and her husband and myself, visited The Lamb today for lunch. We ordered three steak dinners and a gammon steak dinner. We asked for two steaks to be cooked 'Well Done' and the other 'Medium'. After a rather long wait the dinners arrived. The steaks looked like they had been incinerated! The 'Well Done' can... More

This hotel is a listed building about 150 yards from the beautiful Ely Cathedral. The car park is rather small and quite hard to find. The interior of the hotel is rather tired and our bedroom was fairly basic, but adequate and clean but there was no AC. and the room was a bit stuffy.The staff of the hotel were... More

Knowing that this hotel is the 3rd most haunted building in Ely did not help me to feel relaxed about the 2 night stay, however, we had been assured that our room ( number 14) was not haunted.
