Stayed here for a night on our first ever visit to Ely. It was the coldest day of winter so far, and we were the only guests. The house was as warm as such a historic house could be, as was our welcome from hosts Robin and Jenny. Excellent recommendation for dinner ( the old Fire station round the corner... More

We stayed here with some friends so had the two rooms on offer. Good rooms with comfortable beds and cotton sheets. The Oriel suite has a sitting which enjoyed with our friends. Breakfast is in the kitchen and was fine. The hosts Robin and Jenny are delightful and full of interesting stories.

We were visiting from Germany and had a very wonderful stay, unfortunately for one night only. The house is extraordinary: It dates from the early 19th century (if I remember it right) and everything is very nicely decorated - the rooms, the stairway and even the kitchen. Also, we had a wonderful view on the cathedral from many of the... More

This is simply my favourite B&B! Cathedral House is an oasis of tranquillity in the centre of Ely with a charming walled garden and delightful sense of stepping back in time. Robin and Jenny are the friendliest of hosts and a warm welcome is assured. I'm now a veteran at Cathedral House and I always look forward to my stay.... More

My wife and I stayed at Cathedra House for 3 nights in May and I feel happy to endorse my review with a 4* rating. Proximity to the Cathedral and town centre was ideal, and the accommodation unique in my experience. If you are a fan of the anonymity and functionality of a large hotel, then this accommodation is probably... More

If you are in... More

Interesting old house with loads of character. Room was clean and comfortable, 2 mins walk from the cathedral. I really hate communal breakfasts with strangers, so I didn't have breakfast and couldn't comment on that, although other reviews here are good. Ely itself is a pretty place, very small and completely dominated by the huge cathedral. I spent a pleasant... More

We drove through Ely a couple of years ago, only having time briefly to stop at the cathedral. What we saw made us determined to return for a weekend, and we finally managed it earlier this year. We stayed at Cathedral House - very central and very comfortable with charming and welcoming hosts. In short - highly recommended!

Delightful location, comfortable rooms with an interesting and slightly quirky feel. Excellent breakfast. Helpful owners provided safe storage for our bikes and advice about our route. Perfect for visiting the Cathedral and surrounding area.
