My wife and I got married here on Nov 25th 2016. From the start we were blown away by the stunning setting, attentive staff and slick organisation. We enjoyed the wine and personalised food tasting sessions. Throughout the planning process, our queries (no matter how minor) were dealt with speedily and professionally. The wedding day went without a hitch, all...

I stayed here as had business meetings and a dinner in Ely, somewhere i visit fairly regularly. Compared to the other establishments in the area The Old Hall is a completely different class! It cost me roughly £20 extra to stop here but I'll never stay anywhere else in Ely again. It is truly gorgeous, comfortable, sumptuous, luxurious........I could go...

Beautiful setting, beautiful views from the Cathedral Room, very pleasant helpful staff which appear to be the family of the house. Lovely breakfast. Fantastic spacious room. The only drawback is that there is no restaurant on site or bar. You have to get a taxi into Ely where there is ample choice of eating places.

We loved staying at the Old Hall. Our room was spacious, clean and had beautiful views of the cathedral in the distance. The staff were friendly and helpful and discrete. Our bed was very comfortable and we had a great night sleep. Breakfast was delicious and the portions were just right- not too big or too small. We will definitely...

Our second stay here. The place has been enlarged, but the standard has been maintained. The whole stay was faultless. Very friendly welcome. Comfortable bedroom with great views from the windows. Excellent breakfast. Convenient for Ely and all it's charms. What more could one want?

Apart from a minor hiccup when we were allocated our room , which was promptly sorted out, we had an enjoyable 3night stay at The Old Hall. We received a lovely welcome & soon settled in to our comfortable room which catered for all our needs. Morning breakfast was cereal, fruit, yoghurt & croissants & the option of a lovely...

Took us quite a while to find this place and also when you are in the building it is really difficult to navigate yourself from one place to another inside and outside the building. Trying to find the reception was not easy it's just a door that has a sign on it saying office.Therefore we couldn't contact them to ask...

Apart from the attraction and beauty of the building when attending a family wedding in August at The Old Hall. The food we were served was quite somewhat atrocious, not much effort for an apology was given, during or after, in return for the lack of concern from themselves after serving the courses they described as a meal . Which...

Everyone planning their beautiful day, take this on board. We spent ages finding the perfect venue, when we came across the old hall we were stunned by its beauty! The house is amazing and the grounds are stunning. We immediately booked it. We prepared for two years, in that time we had a few meetings at the venue to discuss...
