We stayed in room 2 - front right ground floor - really great view. The bed was very comfortable, plenty of storage, enough sockets to charge up our "toys" (laptop, tablet, phones etc), comfy chairs to enjoy the view, but the highlight was the bathroom. Roomy and well-fitted with plenty of fine white towels, excellent shower, and daily replenishment of...

Lovely decorated room and extremely clean. Coffee/tea facilities in room which are replenished daily. Looks out onto river. Next door to a restaurant with outside tables. Parking nearby. Friendly owner.

I'd like to stay here because your reviews are outstanding and it sounds like a good place to stay but you don't provide a breakfast why not? also your place reminds me of a bridal shop on bridge street in Herefordshire but I could be wrong

We have only been to Ely once before but as we had an early hospital appointment we decided to stay overnight instead of getting up early. What an amazing place, everything was perfect from the room decor, the view, the owner. We were very pleased and are thinking of going to stay overnight for my birthday in May. I would...

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.

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.
