    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.

    Honestly, do yourself a favour and try the pub across the road that doubles up as a hotel. Our trip was very short notice and we booked Ely GH the day before, but we were disappointed to find that double rooms are priced way cheaper at the Pub and they also do a fantastic Sunday roast. I always read reviews before booking but let my guard down here, never again. It was probably one of the worse places I have ever stayed in my life and I’m not young. BTW, I gave £110, where is my change?

    The Boathouse is maintained immaculately and it even has a large private garden as a bonus. The hosts provide all essentials including a bottle of milk, tea/coffee, jams, microwave, iron etc. The property is larger than the photographs portray and is stylishly presented providing for a relaxing and homely stay. A car is essential as the property is in a countryside location. I would definitely recommend this property especially if you are looking for somewhere to relax in peace and quiet.

    Stunning inner courtyard with al fresco dining, that’s also great for a drink and read. Beautifully appointed rooms with good air conditioning, great shower and plenty of space. Staff are very friendly, attentive and helpful. The whole place feels classy and relaxed. Few minutes stroll to Ely Cathedral which you can see from the hotel dining room. The hotel kindly stored our bikes inside in a safe place. Highly recommended. Arrive early and leave late to soak up the atmosphere.

    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.

    Great location for walking to shops, restaurants and tourist attractions. Ely is charming and easy to walk round. The room was warm and the shower very good. Luckily, we got a space in the small hotel car park because public parking is restricted to 3 hours. How to manage that in a 2-night stay???

    Lovely hotel, staff were so friendly and helpful, room was spotless and air conditioning made it even better. I can honestly say its the best breakfast I've had. Location was perfect the river was 5 minutes walk away and the town centre 5 minutes the other way. Will definitely be returning.

    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.

    Room was well equipped and comfortable. Lovely view over the river. Particularly excellent breakfast. Dinner was good but a little limited if staying more than a couple of nights. Fresh vegetable was cabbage every night, fortunately I like cabbage.Staff were helpful and cheerful.

    A very well appointed house close to the centre of Ely ahd handy for a Cambridge visit. Excellent pub behind the property for food. Recommend the micro-pub towards the bottom of the High Street.

    The hotel itself was very pleasant, staff were very friendly and helpful. My room was largely quiet as I had a stable room away from the main building. Shower was powerful and hot.
