My partner and I wanted somewhere nice to stay for the weekend in Ely, and we found just that. We traveled by train, and were fairly tight for time to make it to the Cathedral for a concert. Jenny and Robin couldn't have been more helpful, settled us in smoothly so we even had time for a quick drink before... More

What an amazing place to stay! We booked the self catering cottage and found it most delightful! It was full of character, antiques and many books. The garden was magical, just like a secret garden! The cottage was well equipped and the beds really comfortable. It was brilliant to have en-suites for each room, so no queuing for the bathroom!!... More

Cathedral House is a delightful B and B with so much charm. The house was full of interesting ornaments, pictures and mirrors. The room was immaculate and overlooked the garden. Hosts Jenny and Robin were charming and Robin was a font of useful information and so charming too!! Perfect position for the cathedral-literally just round the corner but once you... More

This was an amazing place to stay, it is like a secret world hidden in a walled garden. The house if full of character and great antigues and ornaments all over the place. It has so much charm and is really cosy. Each room has an on-suit, so there are 4 toilets in the house! We booked the self-catering cottage,... More

Went to Ely for the weekend with other half. There's 'enough' to do for the weekend but you might want to drive to be able to go furthur afield, we went to Cambridge for the day. Great position with parking. There's plenty of places to eat although the places do get busy at the weekend so might consider pre booking,... More

We stayed here in mid June. Cathedral House is an elegant house, reached through a door in the wall off the street. Entering, one feels a little overpowered by the trees encroaching from the garden. Our room was clean and tidy, and well maintained. However, it could do with a bit of a spruce up paint-wise, and especially in our... More

Make sure you're the right class when booking here. I phoned to place a booking yesterday and everything was going well before I mentioned I was working in the area, at which point the proprietor said, 'oh, oh, hang on a minute', and returned to say, 'oh, I'm sorry, my husband took a booking and didn't put it in the...

Lovely central position and delightful period house. Having a suite was a delight and the room had everthing one might need. Jenny was a gracious hostess and the breakfast was lovely. A small gripe is that, as vegetarians, we always feel a bit cheated that breakfast is the same as meat eaters would have, minus meat. At the top end... More
