“Excellent value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

We stayed overnight on our way to visit family. The rooms are warm and comfortable, although it was a little noisy on the ground floor near to the entrance. The restaurant is also very good and the reason I only give it four out of five stars is because I couldn't have my first choice from the menu; picky you might think, but I couldn't have my second either! Staff were friendly and helpful. We'd definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Don't have a room on the ground floor near to the entrance!

There were eight of us as a family and we booked for the Christmas 3 day break. What a wonderful time we have had. The staff were very welcoming and the food delicious and plenty of it (in fact we are all feeling very very full!) There were lovely roaring fires and there were plenty of places for us to play cards etc. The rooms were clean and warm and we all received a super little present of specialist jams in a presentation box from the management. Plus it was next to some quiet woods and a long way back from the road so nice and peaceful.We will definitely go next year. Well done Ely hotel and all the staff.

Visited the restaurant on the way back from Thorpe Park. The staff were absolutely charming and the food was good quality for the price. The furniture was a little tired but the place was comfy and the food was great value for money. I would definitely stop by again.

This is very convenient for us when visiting friends in the area. You can easily nip to Camberley and Farnborough so ideal for Sandhurst and The Air Show. The Ely is clean with very comfortable beds but is quite dated. The staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is now much better than a few months ago, thank goodness! However when you can stay in a clean room
with a comfortable bed with breakfast for £30 on a Sunday night it has to be one of the best
bargain deals offered in the area.

Great stay at The Ely - lovely hotel - staff were fab and really attentive, nothing was too much trouble. Overnight stay for a works Christmas party (which was was also excellent - really good menu and nice and private in the Marquee) - would definately recommend for a party and will be visiting again

My family and I always eat at the Ely either on our way to, or on way home from, London. We find it much easier than eating in the city, the food and service always being top notch. The welcome always warm and friendly. In all honesty, we would not consider eating anywhere else on a trip to the city.

Had dinner at The Ely on Saturday night, great atmosphere, amazing food - steak cooked to perfection and the staff are true credits to The Ely. The manager has done a great job training the staff to always make sure the customers are happy. Booked again for next week. Can't wait!
