There is a common view the Guest Houses are usually a bit tired and elderly and located in seaside resort side streets. Any comparison between such a place and the Riverside Inn at Ely would be like comparing a Reliant Robin with a Rolls Royce.
Actually the structure of Riverside Inn is fairly old, but it quite simply has as high a standard of decoration and fittings as any room we’ve had in the UK. Everything was clean, lots of little perks, and a good breakfast. Service was good but not intrusive.
Obviously only having three rooms it does not offer the wealth of trendy add-ons (golf, gyms etc.) of a 5 star hotel. But it is a 5 star Guest House (and with a gold award) well deserves this status.
