This is a small country hotel and been around in various versions for 100's of years and therefore is in an excellent location close to Ely cathedral and only a short drive to Cambridge. The hotel itself is located on the corner of Ely High Street and Lynn Road and literally a 1 minute walk to the Cathedral and local... More

My wife and I enjoyed a hearty dinner here whilst visiting the lovely cathedral town of Ely. We had steaks which were yummy and cooked exactly as we had requested. It can get quite busy at times so it is worth either getting there early or booking in advance.

Couldn't believe what we got for our money! We had a superior room but were not expecting the four poster bed, huge room and lovely bathroom. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great and Ely has lots to offer.

I stayed here after a period of 3.5 years since my previous visit. Nothing seemed to have changed in the meantime. It's a good and reliable hotel, extremely well situated and there are worse views from a hotel room window than Ely Cathedral! But nothing else stands out in my view. The car park is obviously now far too small... More

3 of us went for lunch, large sign on wall offers a 'Golden Years' option for lunch...no info so asked at the bar. "We don't do that" was the reply...so why advertise it? Drinks prices for alcoholic drinks were on the menu, but none of the non alcoholic drinks were priced... maybe because at £2.20 a small bottle its a... More

Dirty rooms, outdated decor. Generally very unpleasant and to be avoided. The bathroom was superficially clean, the window in the room was filthy, and couldn't be opened. Once you leave the bar area the journey to the rooms just gets more grubby with every step.

I may have reviewed The Lamb before, but I have been back. It is still very good. Welcoming and comfortable. The bedrooms are a little dated, but clean and comfortable. The food in the evening is standard Green King (the same as the George in Huntingdon, the Castle in Bakewell etc) but nicely prepared and presented. The breakfast is very... More
