The Guest House is in a perfect location next to the cathedral and the high street. It is 10-15 minutes by foot from the rail station. Our room (8) was not above the Thai restaurant (as pictured when you look at the trip advisor site). It was at the back, with a different entrance, by the parking (for guests), and it was quiet. The room was under two very slopping roofs. The space where we could stand up was small. There was a small washbasin. There was a tray with tea bags, milk, and nescafe and a kettle. The furniture was - how can I describe it? A bit sad, a white dressing table, pink old small sofa (under the slope), and an impeccably made bed with white sheet and duvet (under the other slope). Good TV opposite the bed. When booking, the shared facility is mentioned, But unless one experiences it, it is hard to imagine what can happen at 8am! Other guests can, and do, take bath/showers. There can be 8? 10? people in four or five rooms. This meant that the one and only toilet became inaccessible when one (selfish) person took a lengthy bath/shower. Very basic room. No breakfast. You get two keys and you drop them on leaving in the letter box. You pay inside the Thai restaurant, on arrival. It was a bit uncomfortable. People were enjoying their meal, and here you are, with your bags your £60 in cash. This was the only room I could find in Ely at short notice. Would I return? Probably not. This is not a B&B and not a hotel. What we got was one small room (number 8) with a kettle - and shared toilet (on a different floor ). Wonderful location though.
