The Cathedral House is perfect for visiting Ely Cathedral, the Stained Glass Museum and the Cromwell House. The B&B rooms are really suites delightfully furnished in the Georgian period, as are all the other rooms and stairs, to match the house and full breakfasts are taken with other guests round a large table leading to convivial conversations. Jenny and Robin... More

We have just returned from a four night stay at Cathedral House, and were absolutely delighted with our visit. On arriving in Ely, we did not find Cathedral House the first time we drove down St Mary's Street, but once we spotted the flower shop on the left, and saw the parking on the right, we chanced it, and parked....

We rented the Coach House for a week whilst staying in the area and what a little gem. It was like stepping back in time, there were so many unique features that dated back to the original building. This made for a very interesting as well as a comfortable stay here, the bedrooms were a delight. Robin and Jenny were... More

We booked a very spacious room at Jenny and Robin's b and b so we could have a look around Ely. Everything was as one would hope for and we had an excellent stay. The house is a grade 2 listed building and there are many interesting artefacts around the house. We liked this. Jenny and Robin are good hosts... More

This is a delightful B and B run by a retired couple. The room was very comfortable and clean with plenty of hot water. The cooked breakfast was delicious and as was the fruit salad. Cathedral House is very centrally situated within a very short distance walk to the High Street and the magnificent Cathedral. My only very slight criticism... More

Many thanks for taking the trouble to give us a review - much appreciated. So sorry you found it rather warm. There are adjustable valves on the radiators. It is one of the problems with our country's erratic climate ie: today it is 8c and tomorrow the forecast is 20c!!! More

A beautiful listed house close to the Cathedral with lovely rooms. Robin and Jenny gave me a warm welcome and showed me to such a pleasantly decorated, light filled room. Breakfast was delicious and served in a cosy, antique filled breakfast room. My hosts were very knowledgeable and helpful and I couldn't have asked for a better first stay on... More

This is a B&B for antique lovers. This is a lovely building with some nice antiques but in my opinion more functional antiques would be preferable. This is my personal opinion but I believe it is particularly necessary in a B&B with limited space. The Oriel Suite consisted of a hallway, off which was a sitting room and bedroom, with... More

Very comfortable B&B in central Ely, just around the corner from the cathedral and Cromwell's House. Large, light, warm and comfortable twin room with ensuite bathroom. Shower spray in bath was fine for me but may be awkward if anyone has limited mobility and prefers to stand in an overhead shower. Breakfast was very good with good choice of food... More
