Hello Dee. We're really glad that you enjoyed your stay and that the wedding went off well. As you say, we are an easy walk from the Cathedral and the centre of town. That's why we bought the place - because our son was a chorister there many moons ago.

“A disappointing experience unprofessionally handled”
Reviewed October 13, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

A disappointing experience. An unprofessional response to a misinformation issue on TripAdvisor was a bad start.

The property is tired and poorly maintained. A little thought and care would make a difference, but a makeover is required to bring it up to an acceptable standard.

Be aware there is only one cramped shower room upstairs and another toilet downstairs, not three bathrooms as was advertised when we booked.

Naturally we're disappointed by this review but we do believe that the client made an error in his reading of the available information and then despite repeated attempts to correct his misunderstanding he refused to accept the mistake. We truly sorry that they didn't enjoy their stay but they were convinced that we were in the wrong and nothing would change their view. Somehow they convinced themselves that the property has three ensuite bathrooms and the on arrival demanded a substantial rebate which was declined. Their tone was abusive, highly critical and lacked all reason.

Please note that this review does not correlate with any of the others. What a shame.

We stayed at No.19 for 4 days on a business trip this February. The house is quite spacious and easily accommodated myself and two colleagues. It is extremely well equipped, and for our purposes was a much better option than a hotel or B&B as it gave good break out space, while we also had the opportunity to chat over the day's progress. Given the low temperatures during our week in Ely, it was a pleasant surprise to find a very warm and cosy house. From the outset, the owner was very responsive and helpful. The property is situated very close to the main amenities and sights of Ely, and a visit to the cathedral is highly recommended.

Stayed here for 3 nights in April. Number 19 is in a very quiet area of Ely and within a few minutes walk of the centre. The property is very spacious, well appointed and has everything one requires for self catering. Would certainly recommend it as a first choice to stop in Ely.

“Clean, cosy and convenient”
Reviewed May 9, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

We rented this little terraced house for a short break holiday in Ely, and were very pleased with our choice. Big plus points of the property include its central location (you can easily reach everywhere on foot) combined with easy parking (available at the rear of the garden but also in the road in front) but all in a quiet neighbourhood. The whole house was nice and bright and clean; the kitchen was modern and relatively spacious, and there is a nice garden with outside seating area. The downstairs loo was handy too. Decent crockery, cutlery and glasses, efficient central heating and unlimited hot water on demand. Towels and linens of decent-enough quality, The shower works fine, but beware if you are a little on the large side as this shower room (there is no bath) is VERY compact! Bedroom arrangements are fine and it is nice and quiet. You are only 5 mins walk from the Oliver Cromwell House & the tourist info office is inside there - the people in there are exceptionally helpful and provided bus and train timetables for Cambridge and Kings Lynn etc and lots of helpful recommendations. We ate in the Poets House (highly recommended) and had afternoon tea in the Samovar Tea House (excellent) and we also caught the No 9 bus into the centre of Cambridge (there is one bus an hour but the bus stops right in the centre of Cambridge opposite the new John Lewis store - great!). We found booking easy and Bob was helpful in answering all our emailed questions prior to arrival. I would use this house again if returning to the area.
