    Stayed at a hotel 10 minutes walk into Ely, the weather was extremely windy but we enjoyed the walk. We found quite a few quirly shops plus alll the usual high street shops, a few cafes and few places pto have a tea or coffee. We were surprised that the local carparks were free … what a bonus. We walked around the cathedral and were amazed at the beauty of this truly amazing stricture. We can recommend the Minster Arms for an evening meal, where they offer good food and ample servings. We only stayed for a day and night but there will definately be another return visit to Ely

    We loved the cathedral, which was at its most mystical when we visited in December. We attended two fantastic events in the cathedral during our stay – but needed a mulled wine afterwards to warm us up! Another high point was the Farmers' market, which had all sorts of tempting foodstuffs on offer.

    One of the most magnificent cathedrals in Europe,which sits in most beautiful parkland, at the centre of a bustling, prosperous, quirky small town on a major river in the heart of the fascinating Fenlands of England

    Loved the cathedral and the purpose of the visit was to see a performance of Dickens “A Christmas Carol” in the evening at the cathedral. A lovely way to start Christmas. A very good production of professional actors. Also went to the market and High Street and Oliver Cromwell’s house. All very interesting and enjoyable. Great pubs, good beer and food within walking distance.

    Beautiful town, great variety of small shops.

    Beautiful town, great variety of small shops. Very pretty down near the river with the canal boats. Stopped off in the morning at the Almonry Tea Rooms right next to the Cathedral, for great cheese scone and coffee. Great photos to be had of the cathedral from the gardens at the back of Tea Rooms. Had a tasty carvery at the Riverside Bar and Kitchen overlooking the river. Every where very well signposted. Found our way easily to the railway station, when we travelled to Cambridge for the day. Lovely walk through Cherry Hill Park on the way. Sun shining on Cathedral made great photos! A little bit sad that they charged £10 to get into the cathedral. I think a voluntary donation would have been more appropriate to make a magnificent building accessible to all in these tough times.

    We were staying as my Wife was selling her beanie hats at the Cathedral Christmas Market (15-18 November 2023). Ely is lovely, lots to see and do. Like many older places parking can be tight and there were lots of people around. Very friendly and warm locals, good customer service in pubs and cafes.

    The approach through the big gates are quite breath taking. The views of the grounds are spectacular - wonderful sculpted hedges and well maintained grounds. The double room was finished to a high level and spacious. Staff were first class. nick the night porter went above and beyond to check me in and get me to my room when I arrived past midnight. Fantastic location being so close to Ely train station, which I used to avoid driving in to Cambridge itself. Good strong wi-fi throughout the hotel as well - great from a works perspective.

    The location, the food and the room was exceptional !! Very peaceful and comfortable The Room was immaculately clean and well presented with a great balcony looking over the river. Bathroom is probably the best bathroom I’ve had in a hotel. Food was fantastic And the service was perfect couldn’t be more helpful and friendly. A hidden gem I will definitely return.

    I loved everything about this hotel and I am usually very picky. The staff provided us with everything we had asked for within minutes and without any complaints. They even gave us some milk for our toddler as we had run out and didn't have the chance to buy any. The room was clean, big and very comfortable. I would definitely stay there again.

    More of a personalised experience compared to a boring hotel room. Great cosy feel with excellent facilities. Private parking is so convenient. Everything you need for a couple's stay in the area. The hosts were really friendly and easily accessible. Overall, we thoroughly recommend a stay and would definitely come again.

    We've all stayed at the Nyton before, this was the first time we've stayed as a group. As usual we couldn't fault our stay, rooms (and all areas of the hotel we saw) were clean and comfortable and the breakfast set us all up for the day! Staff were friendly and professional, we'll definitely be back!

    Lovely old building, tastefully modernised but retaining unique features like the old bread oven near the bar. Very friendly and helpful staff, quickly changed our bed arrangement on arrival. The full English breakfast was the best ever, with home made spicy black pudding to die for 😉

    Castle Lodge was a basic hotel in a good location in Ely. It wasn't a great hotel, but the process reflected that. You get what you pay for and I have no complaints. Would happily go again. If you don't want to spend a lot and you're OK with just the basics, Castle Lodge is just fine.

    Excellent situation close to Cathedral, shops etc Lovely old coaching inn, clean and comfortable. Food very good and staff pleasant and helpful. Main reason for choosing is the fact that it is dog friendly. Dogs allowed in bedrooms, bar and restaurant.

    It has lots of potential but felt a bit unkempt. It’s an old fashioned country house hotel. There’s lots of free parking.
