Our special day was tailor made for us at this wonderful venue. From the moment we walked in we felt warm and welcomed. The entire team made us feel at ease with any request and always a smile to be seen. Amazing people and an amazing hotel. Thank you Poets House.
We held our wedding at The Poets House on 27th Oct 2018. We booked it a year in advance and worked with the Events Manager to create our very special day. The hotel delivered - and more. It was amazing. The facilities, including the bedrooms, are top class and the staff are incredibly helpful. Indeed, one guest commented that the staff kept smiling throughout and that makes all the difference. When we entered the Writing Room for the wedding breakfast, it had been dressed to perfection and would have done justice to any elite hotel in the world. The food was superb - everyone loved it. But above all, the ambience of this gem of a hotel made it perfect for us. We can not recommend it highly enough.

My husband and I got married and had our reception at Poets House in Ely. The team were extremely attentive and organised, right from when we first looked around to the day after our wedding. We had exclusive use for our wedding, which came with all 21 rooms. We all had a fantastic time and guest were extremely impressed with the rooms and the quality of the food on the day. Breakfast the day after was included for those guests that stayed, and was excellent!

We recently hired the function room to host a reception after our daughters’ Christening. We opted for a buffet and seasonal dessert. The initial planning was made easy, efficient and the staff were incredibly helpful.
On arrival, the venue looked amazing and the food and drinks were excellent. We were all looked after all afternoon by the fantastic Poet’s House team. Christine in particular was one step ahead of what we needed all the time and made the whole experience so easy and enjoyable for us.
The food was delicious and the portions were generous. Our guests were very happy and enjoyed the afternoon. We will certainly be returning in the near future!
Pre-Christmas lunch with extended family. Lovely atmosphere in the bar upon arrival, and a good sized private room for lunch for a party of 18. Lovely food and good service. Also good decor and gardens, perfect for photographs. Recommended.
There for a family wedding. Staff couldn’t have done anything better. Brilliant occasion and excellent memories made
