Poets House, Ely
Perfect experience
Out of 7 inns/b&bs in England, Poets House was our favorite - so beautiful, tremendous service, and a perfect experience all around.

Wonderful Hotel in Ely
We stayed at the Poets House for 5 nights over the Christmas holiday. The staff was wonderful and so helpful. The food during Christmas dinner was exceptional. They have a bar/lounge area that has comfortable chairs and sofas with many conversation areas. The hotel underwent a total renovation 3 years ago and it is so elegantly decorated. The room has a beautiful copper tub which unfortunately I did not get to use. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Beauthiful little hotel in the heart of Ely
Beautiful hotel. We both loved it, especially the tub. The bed was very comfortable. location was perfect, as we had a view of ely cathedral out of our window (Room #10). Service was great, very friendly and helpful and efficient. The restaurant attached also has a unique charm, and live music was played by a talented singer/guitar player with a lovely voice.

Ely stay
Comfortable and spacious rooms with modern decor. Antoine who attended our table at dinner time was very attentive, friendly and engaging! There were a couple of issues that I would like to point out to help improving the service: 1) the requested newspaper never arrived 2) the bill was wrong 3) there was a problem with the cold water that apparently affected several rooms. It was challenging to brush my teeth or even wash my hands

Poets House, Ely
Amazing place with copper bath in every room. We love the ones that are in the bedroom! Bed so comfy, rooms huge, a lovely luxurious feel to the place with loads to do in the doorstep. Views of the cathedral
