Ok, so it’s not part of the Thai restaurant anymore, or is it? I went into the Thai restaurant and purchased a night’s accommodation there last time with my meal. Now I am told it’s not anything to do with them anymore, but fortunately I was able to talk to the owner (?) when I did go into the restaurant...

One night in this charming little guest house, Saturday - Sunday. The welcome is warm and genuine, and the room itself is a good size. The owners had cleared an area in the courtyard for our bicycles (completely isolated from the street so very secure), but for various reasons, we had to drive it. It was very cold when we...

Really basic, did the job. If I had the time to stay for a day it is placed in a good position for tourists. Really close to Ely cathedral. The stairs were a challenge after a hard week working and the shared bathroom was on a different floor.

I have stayed in a few places in and around Ely while working here and, dear god this is worse than a puns toilet in central London, underground, after no cleaning while being shut for 5 years! Mould on the shower curtains, pubic hairs on the pillow, white liquid stains sprayed up the wall (for future stayers I hope it's...

Only 5 rooms available and entrance is a small doorway in a street with constant traffic and pedesterian crossing right outside bipping and whirring at all hours of day and night. Eventually someone answered the door after I'd banged hard a number of times. Girls said owner not there (at swimming pool) so she couldn't allow access to the room...

NOT FIT FOR HUMANS! PLEASE look at the attached photos. I've seen less dust in an undiscovered tomb. I complained to booking.com to get a pitiful refund for the two painful nights stayed. I've stayed in cleaner hostels in the far east and that's saying a lot. £130 for two nights is laughable. I cannot urge anyone enough not to...

Don't stay here unless you have no other choice. Far too expensive for what you get. Odd, abrupt, immediate demand for cash when you arrive, before you even see the room. We stayed in a separate building to the reception which is in a Thai restaurant. We were lead up a dark, dank, staircase, with grim carpets, and a delightful...
