The room was comfortable and well-appointed with a lovely view of the river. We had dinner at the nearby riverside pub (less than 30 secs away) and breakfast at Grand Central, the NY-themed bar/restaurant literally next door to the guest house; we'd recommend both. We had been a bit concerned that with the guest house not doing breakfast it might... More

Lovely looking hotel and lovely rooms, but if you are a light sleeper don't stay as you can hear a mouse fart, bed uncomfortable and needs new mattress and everyone in other rooms moving and next door brining in and out chairs. Check out is at ten normally it's 11:00 most places. Price at but much ££££

Our room was lovely and had a wonderful view. it was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was bright and spotless with a very powerful shower. There were high quality complimentary toiletries and the towels were brilliant white and fluffy. We were only there for one night as attending a wedding at The Old Hall, just 5 mins taxi ride...

The room we stayed in was really nice and the folks running the place were very pleasant and helpful. The location is perfect for Ely as it is by the river and only a short walk from the cathedral and the city centre. Although it's accommodation only there is an excellent breakfast place next door.

The single room is too small and south-facing. This is no good in summer where the room gets very hot. Basically, this means you will be sleeping with a fan running plus open window. Also be aware that despite the relatively high price no breakfast is provided. Nice bathroom - same size as the cupboard rented out to singles.

This is a small guesthouse with about 5 rooms all furnished to a very high standard. It is located on the river with a bar on one side and a pub a minutes walk away. Despite that we didn't have any trouble with noise at night. Central Ely and the cathedral are about 5 minutes walk away through two parks.... More
