“Evening Catch Up”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

My friends and I meet up here at least a couple of times a week because it's a lovely place, the food is good and reasonably priced, the atmosphere is lovely which is due to the staff being so friendly. With the new addition of the function room we are looking forward to attending some of the numerous events they have planned.

We also spent New Year's Eve here where we also stayed overnight and it was all really really good and excellent value for money.

We held our party in the new Hampshire suite and cannot fault anything. The customer care was excellent particularly the bar staff. The food very good and D.J. Was brilliant and played exactly the type of music we requested. All our guests commented on the great venue. Hotel connected was great to have on site.

We recently stayed at The Ely Hotel having stayed there a few years ago and really enjoyed it. The staff are amazing. Very helpful and also they all share a wonderful team spirit and sense of humour. The room we stayed in had a huge and very comfortable bed with UK TV and tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The breakfasts were excellent as was the choice of food generally in the restaurant. One point I have to make is that I could have had a very bad experience in that I had some how dropped my purse in the bar. Luckily the honesty of the staff ( A young lad call Tom) by identifying the contents and checking the hotel records worked out the owner and returned it immediately. It could have been dreadful... Thanks again to all at The Ely we will be returning and definitely recommending...

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the woods away from the main road an advantage

We booked our wedding reception here for Saturday 7th June 2014.
It was an amazing day. Staff were brilliant (and flexible when the food service had to be delayed for photographs), food was fabulous, bar was well managed all night and everything went very smoothly.
Had about 10 rooms booked by family and friends, all of whom said breakfast was lovely too.
We did not have the 'special offer' package, but rather let our guests choose between a number of dishes on each course. I imagine that between all 78 guests (including vegetarians) that there must of been 15 different dishes served !! All were enjoyed with not a single complaint.
The venue is only a few months old, we had it professionally decorated (she was fabulous !!) and the staff were very helpful in the morning and in the early hours of the following day when tidying everything up.
All in all it was a fantastic venue.

I love tmenu place and come here often for lunch but occasionally dinner. Staff are great and helpful, Andy the assistant has moved to a different business which is a shame but the existing staff are brilliant.

The new menu now features just English food and great specials which is good, the fish and chips is great.

The positives outnumber the negatives from my first visit to The Ely.They have friendly and efficient staff. The room I was allocated was clean and comfortable and I did not hear any noise at all.
The food was a bit of a mixed bag the first night was very good the second night unfortunately the Pate was very dry and the Beef and Ale Pie was rock hard with hardly any filling at all about 4 pieces of meat measuring one centimetre. The Breakfast was excellent with a very good selection available.
There was a nice atmosphere throughout and not that you would want to leave to go anywhere else but a car is required if you did.
All in all an enjoyable stay forgiving the second nights meal which I will put down to a one off.
