I have stayed here before on a previous business trip and had a good experience, so i though I'd give it another go. I'm going to get my gripe out of the way first by saying that it was very hot (which is unusual for UK) and the room i stayed in had no air con. There were no cold blowers available either. The young lady on reception apologised and indicated that all fans were out too. But i didnt see the point of a fan any way as it would just churn existing hot air. Apart from the heat, the room was spacious and and well presented and it looks like the bathrooms have had recent update, The wi-fi was good and plenty of tea and coffee facilities in the room. A small fridge would be a nice addition to the room. I had dinner in the busy restaurant which was excellent as usual, as was breakfast the following morning. The overall experience was very good, but if there is no air con, there should be an alternative available. I would stay here again but not when its really hot.
My friend and I popped in for a bite to eat on the way back from the Circus and the food was superb. The kids loved the sausage and mash, she loved her chicken salad and I thoroughly enjoyed my wagyu burger. Highly recommend it.
We went to the Ely for a birthday party and it was a really enjoyable evening. The atmosphere was great and the food was delicious. Really nice building in an easily accessible location. We popped in the other evening hoping for dinner but the car park was completely full with nowhere to park, so it is obviously very popular!
Often travel here for lunch which is it perfect for. Nothing too fancy just reasonably priced quick food. Service sometimes at the Ely is not brilliant with certain members of staff being rude and blunt at times but luckily there are a few other members of staff (mainly female) who are much better. Would recommend but only for a quick no frills lunch.
I go to the Ely for a meal around 3 times a year when visiting family. I will order the sausage and mash every time and it never disappoints, honestly the best sausage and mash I have and will ever try!!!
Stayed for one night due to attending a conference in the area. This place is lovely, rooms beautifully remodelled, shower was hot and powerful, nice tea, coffee and hot chocolate in the room. Breakfast was excellent, good quality food served hot and fast. If you are in the area I would recommend you stay the night.
My Parents stayed here over the May Day Bank Holiday, the Room was a family room as they had my niece with them, the was very large with 2 double bed and a single. The room was very clean, plenty of tea and coffee there as well. There was a nice Flat screen TV on the wall. The Bathroom was very clean with plenty of fresh towels. The following morning 6 of us went in for a breakfast, the full English was very good plenty of Tea, Coffee, Juices and Toast. They serve breakfast between 08.00 - 10.00. There's plenty of parking available. They paid £90.00 for the night and that included their breakfast.. I would recommend.
Watch the small print on any deal you get with this place. My own fault entirely for overlooking it, of course, but I just cancelled a booking here with more than a month's notice and was still charged full price. That's a nice deal for them, as they get my money, do nothing, and can let the room out to someone else, but what a rip-off!
If you want gravy poured over you direct from the plate this is the place to go. Then you can be insulted by being offered 40% of the value of the items damaged and told that it was an accident. You can be given back the damaged items cleaned but still soiled and be told that you can try getting them cleaned yourself. Terrible but the truth.
Had lunch here on bank holiday Monday with my husband & 3 year old. Lovely pub, with a great family atmosphere & a light & airy feel. We had nachos to share which were extremely disappointing as they weren't homemade, & somebody had just emptied a packet of Doritos on a plate! I then had fish & chips which were over cooked; batter not crispy & lots of oil. My husband had the burger which looked great. He was very happy with it & said he would come back for that. It came with lovely fries with their skins on. The children's menu was the usual disappointing fair & we plumped for a burger. Why is it kids always get a lower quality? The burger was not the same as my husband's; the bun was a white seeded affair, & the fries were the same as I had out of a frozen bag. Maybe the fries my husband had were also frozen but with their skins on, & being smaller would be far more suitable for a child, so again why not give a child a mini version of the adult meal? I also had a sticky toffee & date pudding supposedly with clotted cream ice cream. The pudding was lovely but the ice cream didn't taste authentic. Also, why don't these family friendly places provide children's cutlery? The service was a bit slow, but very friendly. Would visit again simply because it was an easy place for kids with lots of space!
