We spent 2 nights here in January. The room was very comfortable, quiet and had a view of the river. Extra touches like chocolate on each pillow and offer of fresh milk on first night. The lady who met us on arrival was very friendly but we didn't see anyone again, even when we left. There was no one else...

Not sure who put up the good reviews. We were disappointed as the place felt LESS than a B&B. When we stayed there towards the end of 2016 it was just a house with about 4 bedrooms and nothing else, no lounge or dining room (though it seems recently one of the bedrooms may have been converted to a living...

This hotel is absolutely wonderful. Although they are making changes to include breakfast again, we were not disturbed at all. there are so many good eating places nearby that it is such a good central venue for the town and so peaceful near the river. can't wait to go back again.

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...

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 ££££

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.
