What Our Guests Say

"We have a fantastic one nights stay here in December. Our room was stunning with a beautiful roll top bath in the room. The room was immaculately clean and cosy. The staff were fantastic too and the food in the restaurant was extremely nice too. Absolutely worth every penny we spent, we’ll certainly be back very soon. 10/10! "

"Superb location for any visit to Ely - Thoroughly impressed by our first ever visit here. Very spacious room at the front of the hotel with a view of Cromwell’s house. Roll top bath in the room and a large separate bathroom with a huge shower. We had booked afternoon tea on arrival (as a special treat) it was fantastic! As one of us is vegetarian and the other a nut allergy sufferer they took the utmost care to meet these needs - top marks here.
Extremely close to Ely cathedral and the waterways and of course the centre itself so a perfect location. Breakfast was pleasant enough, although the continental part was somewhat limited. We would have no hesitation in staying here again - an excellent hotel"

Christmas Break away - What can I say. The Hotel is beautiful the rooms are stunning and if such a very high standard. So very clean. We had several meals there during our stay including Christmas lunch which was faultless. Probably the best ever Christmas lunch in my 56 years. And finally the staff so very friendly, helpful and work so well together like one big happy family. We feel we have truly found a new gem and have already booked a long weekend in April. Thank you Poets House for making our Christmas so wonderful. See you in April. Very best wishes Tim and Jenny"
