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

We stayed one night and wished it could have been longer. Location is excellent, 5 minutes walk from the station and overlooking the river. The standard of our accommodation was outstanding and couldn't be faulted. Lots of finishing touches. Breakfast was a cut above the average guest house and served in a dining room overlooking the river. Hospitality was great... More

We had a very enjoyable one night stay while visiting friends. Wonderful location overlooking the river and marina. A very warm welcome. We stayed in room 3 (with a view of the river) which had every facility you could possibly need. A comfortable bed and we had a good night's sleep. A lovely breakfast room and a good breakfast.

you'd have a hard time finding better than this anywhere, not just Ely. The setting on the river, the views, the rooms, breakfast & overall attention to detail - the comfortable bed - all are second to none. Ely centre is within a gentle ten minute stroll, there are great pubs & eateries within a couple of minutes or less.... More
