Stopped just for advertised breakfast awful service awful breakfast. Avoid at all cost. This wasn't just a 1 off same thing happened last time in ely but figured we'd give them the benefit of the doubt. Dont go here!

The Hotel price ok. The breakfast was dissapointing. The bacon had a white scum on it, as if boiled. The dinner in the evening however was very good, so I was surprised how poor the breakfast was. The plate cold.

Super location right in the centre of Ely and only a few steps from the Cathedral. We had a large room with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was small but adequate, even had a bath. Everything was very clean. The Lamb is a proper pub with pleasant public areas. The food prices are very reasonable and it also has... More

Good room, lovely bed. Breakfast included. A great selection. I had smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, hubby chose mushroom omelette. All the usual choices were on the menu also. The staff were excellent, friendly and polite. The only drawback for us was that our room was above an air conditioning unit or some kind of extractor which did not shut... More

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

Our area chef is working with the team of chefs at the Lamb to make sure it doesn't happen again. I am glad to hear that you will return and the team look forward to seeing you soon Kind... 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
