Poets House, Ely
Very Good8.0
No poets about but plenty of atmosphere.
This lovely property in a nicely renovated older building is located directly across from the Cathedral. The staff was friendly, and check-in and -out was quick and easy. The room was one of the largest I have ever seen anywhere, the bathroom itself being bigger than most hotel rooms and containing a brass tub nearly the size of a small swimming pool. The heating and temperature in the bathroom were difficult to control. And, there was no electrical outlet near the desk in the main room, but staff happily provided an extension cable. The room rate or price was appropriate.

Very nice boutique hotel
The hotel was centrally located in Ely. It's a bit pricier than the other hotels in the area, but worth it if your looking for a nice hotel. The room itself was nice, large, clean, roomy, with lots of amenities. The bed big and comfy, but the pillows were a bit flat. There was a large bronze tub, but I did not use it. The staff was great, on the level of a 5 star hotel very attentive and friendly. I would stay here again.
