We stayed one night here on a three night trip to East Anglia. The setting is beautiful and the guest house is clean and smart. Our room was very nice and the lady owner was very friendly and helpful. The hotel does not do meals but there is a pub on one side and a bar and grill on the... More

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

We booked here on the last minute and were treated to a gorgeous room in a beautiful location foe a very fair price. The rooms are spotless and superbly decorated. The owners are very friendly and informative, and the beds really comfy. Please be aware that breakfast isn't available here, but the inn next door offer breakfasts. The beautifully appointed...

Fabulous place but it is not an Inn so if your expecting to pop to the bar it's not going to happen, however next door both sides there are pubs which also offer food. This is a room only property however we did not find this a problem, our room was very clean. Quiet, and well equipped with a and... More

Fantastic location, the accommodation couldn't have been better, very clean and well decorated with facilities you would normally associate with a hotel. These included free wi-fi, hairdryer, a huge bathroom, great dressing table, and a tea making tray. Will definitely return. Handy that the Grand Central diner is next door which does a great breakfast!

Location is what this Inn is all about. Beautiful views of the River from all front facing rooms. Lovely to walk along the river and sit awhile. Lily, the owner, is on hand to offer handy hints. She advised us to take the train and bus into Cambridge and we were very glad of her advice and left the car... More

We stayed here three nights with friends as the base for a cycling trip. The situation was perfect as it was right on a cycle path giving us immediate access to a wide network of cycle lanes. It's also very easy to walk to the charming centre of Ely and explore the magnificent Cathedral and restaurants. Decent beer is a... More
