“Top Notch”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

We stayed here for one night as we were attending the races on a work's day out. We were welcomed with a much needed tray of tea just after lunchtime and had a lovely room overlooking the garden. Everthing about this place is top notch. It is spotlessly clean, the double bed is super comfortable and toiletries in "proper" sizes are provided - even shaving gel for the gents! Little special touches like the fresh roses and toffees in the room make this a very special stay.
The proprietors are super, Dawn's breakfast was fantastic and nothing is too much trouble. We wished we could have stayed longer. The service and facilities provided here proved to be better than those found at the prestigious, historical Hartwell House Hotel and Spa which was where we spent the next night!

Stayed here for two nights to visit Ely. Springfields is lovely, nicely rooms, all three of them (we peeped!). Dawn and Derek are great hosts, nothing is too much trouble, Provide everything you might need, and more, never seen such clean shower room. Breakfast as you want it, which is great if you have dietery needs. Its only 15 mins drive from Ely, which has free parking, and is a lovey city. Well worth it.

Room Tip: Three rooms all lovely, twin not ensuite thou

I was looking for a place near Kings Lynn, just to rest the night before an early meeting. Instead of the regular Travelodge and so on, I found this place at a similar price. I booked on the net and Dawn, the owner, sent me very clear instructions on how to find me key at such a late hour (I arrived at 1am). The room was already open and it had very very English touches, nice and light, with a great bed, sweets in a bowl, tea and coffee and even some biscuits. Nice books about the fens and all the toilteries one could need. The bathroom was small but spotless. The biggest surprise was waking at 6am to see th garden through my window, full of birds, rabbits, squirrels...all happily feeding, chirping, hopping away. There was even a little guide to local birds on the side table so I took a couple of minutes to identify some. Breakfast was in a lovely dining room with a 6 place table, just like being at home. The owners were wonderful to be with and so helpful. If I had to recommend an English B&B, this would be it. I left at 8am, relaxed, looking forward to the day's work. You can't say you often feel like that after a night in some of the chains. Congratulations Baileys, I'll be back!

Baileys has fine interested owners, kind and helpful, with rooms beautifully decorated and furnished. Located taxi ride away from Ely and its cathedral. This is an enlarged bungalow on the main Ely to Cambridge Road. It was a treat for a rest after spending a day in Ely. We had travelled by Train so location not ideal but Owners most helpful and taxi service good, cost £4. Very good location for travellers by Car. GL

Baileys at Springfields is like staying with old friends - nothing is too much trouble and the owners are so lovely. I stayed for one night on 20 August and it is just the best B and B I have ever stayed in. When I am back in Cambridgeshire, I will be staying again - for sure :)
