The location of The Lamb Hotel is perfect as a first introduction to Ely, a couple of steps away from the Cathedral in one direction and a couple of steps away from the shops (don’t miss Topping, a great bookshop!) in the other direction – and good restaurants close to hand (e,g. The Old Fire Engine House and The Cutter... More

The location is fantastic but the hotel is overpriced for what it is. Staff did their job but without many smiles. The hotel is quite tired (stained tiles on bathroom floor, wallpaper lifting in places, worn out seats in dining room) which is a pity as the building itself is very nice. The room was moderately clean - spotless bed... More

This is the second time I have reviewed the Lamb Hotel and unfortunately the reason for the review is the same as last time: a disappointingly long wait for a meal in the bar. My wife and I eat regularly at the Lamb usually early Friday evening and have no reason to criticise unduly,However last Friday was quite simply unacceptable.On... More

we had a lovely dinner here. the service at the bar could have been with a little bit more enthusiasm but other than that the food was really nice. the vegitarian spicy burger was very nice. We also tried the sharing cheesecake platter for dessert which was an adventure. some of the cheesecakes were nice while others fall flat on... More

Pleasant, helpful staff helped with special dietary need. Nothing flash but a good menu, well cooked food - really enjoyed the jalfrezi - and a nice atmosphere. 10% voucher available from Oliver Cromwell's House.

This is a decent choice in Ely. Great location close to the cathedral and several restaurants. The hotel itself has an OK standard, but it needs some painting and love. Stayed one night in a Superior room on first floor. Large room, clean, comfortable bed and a decent bathroom. Had breakfast in the hotel restaurant/pub (included) which was pretty good.

Pleasant, helpful staff and a clean and comfortable room. Might benefit from some modernisation but everything worked fine The bar is ok and serves the usual. Didn't eat dinner there but the menu has something for everyone. The breakfast is good with a wide range, they even do kippers. Yes at that price I would definitely stay again

We stayed in room 5 which is situated above the traffic lights on the main road into the town centre, which caused a modest amount of engine noise even with the windows closed, all was quite after midnight until about 7.30am. the room was quite spacious with all the expected facilities. The bathroom was quite modern, but no extractor fan... More

Three in nothing wrong with the Lamb that a lick of paint and some fresh wallpaper could not fix. We found the staff very welcoming and friendly (especially the redheaded girl receptionist) and although we only had one night there, we found our one breakfast and our one evening meal excellent. The room we had was well furnished, with adequate... More
