My husband and I attended an evening Wedding Reception here last Saturday 11th April 2015. The Old Hall is just a short taxi journey from Ely City Centre, the venue is very well laid out and the staff were all very genuine, helpful and friendly. The evening food 'fish and chips' was just divine, perfect for the occasion. We just... More

We attended a Wedding here on March 28th, what a perfect venue. The food was excellent, the decor and the staff were brilliant. What an amazing dance floor opened up after the meal and speeches. Really think it must be one of the best wedding venues we have visited. Lovely for all the family to be able to stay over... More

My husband and I got married here in January 2015. We decided to give ourselves 3.5 months to plan everything from dress, to location, to food etc etc. when we visited the Hall we immediately fell in love with the place. Everything about the hall and the marquee felt loved and cared for. Leading up to the wedding Alex, Jess... More

My husband and I just had our wedding reception here and I cannot find one fault with The Old Hall. From the first visit, over a year ago, we have loved the place.

I attended my niece's wedding yesterday at The Old Hall. What a fabulous location. Having read some of the reviews was a little apprehensive regarding the service, welcome etc. but needn't have worried. From the moment we arrived we were warmly welcomed & everything about the venue was superb. The food was superb, the organisation was first class & to... More

My wife & I spent a two-day break in Ely and were delighted with every aspect of The Old Hall. Technically this is not a hotel in the accepted sense but the home of a charming family who let out just five rooms in their magnificent home. They have spent nearly 20 years restoring this Jacobean mansion to something like... More

Ely IS a bit off the beaten track, and The Old Hall is 2-3 miles outside Ely in the Fenland. A period brick mansion complex, it has bags of charm and character but also all the creature comforts anyone could wish. The hosts were extremely welcoming and friendly. We had their best room, the one in which Cromwell's mother was... More

Treated incredibly badly by snotty upper-class owners apparently averse to us plebs 'sharing' their house ("this is OUR home, you must observe OUR rules"). Charged a fortune for poor service. The owners were intrusive, obnoxious and unhelpful. If it hadn't been my sister's wedding I would have made a scene. No attempt to cater for individuals (dad can't eat eggs... More

Again, the welcome by the owners was unprofessional and rude,,they are almost resentful of the people who come to have a wedding there, I can only assume they have had to cater for the unwashed masses to pay the bills and it shows,,lovely backdrop, with Ely Cathedral, not so sure about the barrat style house they have turned it in...
