Spent one night whilst stopping over at Ely in this gorgeous inn on the river back of the Great Ouse. Lily is as near a perfect hostess you can probably get – attentive, smiley, helpful – and she and her husband Arturas run a fantastic place. The attention to detail is immaculate, the bed was big and comfy with large... More

This is an excellent guest house in a lovely riverside location, handy for Ely Cathedral and the station, and there is a pub (The Cutter) very close by which serves reasonable food. It is immaculately clean and refurbished to a high standard (the décor is not my personal taste but everything is very well done). There are three bedrooms of... More

We wanted to visit Ely as a couple and stayed here last Friday for one evening. The attention to detail at this inn is second to none. Candles in the bathroom, bottles of water and a bowl of fruit in the bedroom etc. The bedroom was lovely in terms of decoration and bedding and the bathroom very large. We stayed... More

We had a really nice two night stay here. The welcome was as good as the rest of the experience, met on arrival. Nothing was too much trouble. Many little extras help make it all a bit special. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite, yes, it was some 40 odd years too late for us but, well......! Huge bathroom, given... More

Wow, this place is one of the most amazing B&B's I have ever stayed in. It's like a 4 star hotel with only a few rooms. My partner and I stayed here whilst attending a friends wedding, which I was tempted to miss as I couldn't bear to get out of the comfortable bed. The lady who runs the place... More

The Riverside Inn is a lovely small B&B with rooms looking overlooking the river close to the centre of town. The en-suite bathroom is spacious and luxurious with a stone tiled heated floor. There are nice touches like a fresh fruit bowl and chocolates out in the reception for guests to help themselves to. The woman running the hotel was... More

Great view of the river and the breakfast was wonderful. Access to the centre of town is a 5 minute walk through a park and of course its only... More

What's not to like about this lovely place? Lovely outlook, right on the river. The rooms are spacious, with large ensuite bathrooms...which have warm tiles on the floor. Don't be fooled by the little shower head, it is a powerful shower! Access is very convenient with a coded lock on the outside door, then key card for the rooms. It... More
