Very comfortable indeed. A lovely breakfast with a fantastic view of the river and it's activity. Our hostess was very helpful and the service was excellent. Close to all amenities and a pleasant walk both in to town and around the guest house

We only left this morning, and stayed for just one night. This was not enough.....I would just like to back up previous reviews. My wife and have stayed in many Pubs with rooms, Hotels with B & B and normal b & B. This is the most comfortable room we have had. We could not fault it. Lovely room, great... More

We stayed two nights at the Riverside. The owner was so helpful sorting out parking for us and very welcoming on arrival, without being intrusive. The room was furnished with high quality furniture, the bed linen was lovely, and the room was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was a good size with a bath and shower over the top. There was...

This is a lovely old home, situated in a pretty spot on the river. It’s very convenient to the train, and a pleasant walk to the cathedral or along the river. The room and bathroom are spacious and filled with little extras to make your stay more comfortable. Breakfast includes excellent espresso-based coffees handmade by Lily. We arranged in advance...

We booked this for a 2 night stay whilst we were visiting Ely for our niece's wedding, what a little gem it is. The room was large and classically decorated with touches of opulence and overlooking the bend in the river but made private by the presence of a beautiful tree outside. The bathroom was pristine and we are fussy,... More

We have just returned home from another fabulous weekend at Riverside Inn, my sister & husband came with us this time. As the guest house only has 2 rooms upstairs (boutique) you have a private landing area between rooms. If you visit Ely I don't think you could stay anywhere better for location & exquisite rooms. Thank you again we... More

Stayed for one night in August. The room was large and immaculate, and the bathroom was huge and shower was great. Have to say though that the room and guest house as a whole lacks the personal touches I would expect from a place this size and for the price - no fresh milk for tea etc. The cooked breakfast...

The standard in this B&B was unsurpassed in the 13 we stayed in over a two week period. There were chocolates on the pillows, fresh fruit in the rooms. The building was fresh, clean and had plenty of history. We were made very welcome by the host. The view from the window of the river in Ely was wonderful. Would... More

We stayed for one night on the 7th August, It was so comfortable, clean and the bed was comfortable with lovely furnishings. We had been before and am glad we came back to enjoy Ely and the river views. This place is a gem. Tasty breakfast and very friendly hostess. We will make this our English bolt hole. Lovely touches... More
