“ok stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

My wife and I have just had a one night stay at this hotel.
The time on arrival was 12.55pm on a saturday afternoon and when we went into reception we were told in no uncertain terms that we were too early to check in and as the hotel was completely deserted I found this rather strange.
We enquired as to whether we could have lunch and was told that they didn't do food on weekend afternoons but to walk into the city instead where we would find somewhere to eat.
After lunch we returned and checked in the room was number 16 a newly refurbed executive room which was very clean, a lovely shower ( no bath in this room ) and a very large bed , one niggle was only 2 sachets of milk on the drinks tray which was nowhere near enough.The room was very good but I personally found that you wouldnt want a long stay in it as was not very big.
We were given instructions on how to re enter the hotel after 12.30 am and these were very clear and accurate.
We got a goodnights sleep and went down to breakfast which is between 8-9.30am which for a sunday seemed a bit early. Breakfast was a straight choice of english or continental with no cereals as a starter for yourfried breakfast , it was ok no better no worse.
We had decided on a 9.00 breakfast and just as we were finishing at 9.45 the radio was turned off and that was it , the most abrupt and rude end to any meal I have had.
Overall this hotel was ok but in my own opinion I thought the owner wanted you in and out of there as soon as possible and the place seemed to lack a bit of warmth and friendliness, having said that the price was competitive, this is a hotel where I will keep a close eye on reviews before deciding wether to return.

We stayed for 4 days at this delightful hotel in Wolverhampton. I would definitely recommend it to everyone. Positive emotions were felt from start to finish. The staff put in 100% to make sure everything was perfect. Breakfast was delicious. The newly refurbished room was exquisite: stylish, spacious and with great facilities. A truly wonderful stay!

Went for a friends party extremely busy road, room 15 is dated an attempt has been made to make presentable but needs major works. Ken is a little too intrusive to the extent of being pushy. Breakfast was cheep products however was edible but a little cold. Nothing like pictures on web site so don't be fooled....don't expect too much

it is a good hotel for one night stay, it is very noisy in the mornings and also in evenings as it is situated on main street, good 20 minutes walk to city centre, friendly reception, this is a house converted to a hotel

Room Tip: room at the back of the house if possible - as front room is too close to main street

This was our third stay and we were as delighted as we were the previous times we stayed here. The hotel is in a lovely, peaceful location, yet is in central Wolverhampton so is close to many amenities. We were greeted by a very warm welcome on arrival, with first-class customer service throughout our stay. Our room was large, very comfortable and newly renovated to a 4* hotel standard. Breakfast was fresh and of good quality, with a variety of options to choose from. We definitely recommend Ely House Hotel and will be staying here next time we visit Wolverhampton as it is such a well run hotel- unquestionably value for money!
