“Comfortable, friendly and relaxed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

I attended an 80th birthday party here at the weekend, and it couldn't have gone smoother. The service was efficient, friendly and relaxed. The food was superb and venue marvellous. I was a day visitor so can't comment on the bedrooms but the hall was welcoming with big squashy sofas, the newspapers laid out and a fabulous view through the leaded light windows of Ely Cathedral beyond the landscaped gardens and lake. The lunch was for 80 people so were were in the "wedding" marquee at the rear of the property which is a high quality marquee with doubled glazed "walls" over looking an outdoor seating area and the gardens. If you are looking for a wedding venue I would strongly advise paying them a visit as they handled our 80 guests with ease! Highly recommended on all counts.

This most beautiful hotel is situated close to Ely. We stayed here 3 years ago & wanted to stay again so much that we travelled out of our way to do so. We were not disappointed. The hotel is of such a high standard, the bedrooms are beautiful & the freshly cooked breakfast superb. I cannot speak highly enough of the hotel, if only all hotels could be of this standard – this is exceptional value for what you get for your money normally.

Room Tip: They are all good!

It is slightly surprising to arrive at The Old Hall and find a grand house looking so newly restored. If guests are expecting an ancient Jacobean pile they will be surprised to find the comforts of the twenty-first century with just the faintest whiff of heritage. And all the better for it.

The family who run The Old Hall are consummate professionals in the warmth of their hospitality. When we visited there was a large family of Mexicans and a charming, if reticent couple from Yorkshire. All of us were made to feel at home, if we had any questions about where to eat or what to do in Ely, they were answered; and we noticed that the suggestions were tooled to each party. Arrival was relaxed and welcoming and after a journey the tea and cake helped us to settle in straight away.

We stayed in the Cromwell suite which was was beautifully appointed with an entrance dressing-room, a very large bedroom, a vast bathroom and separate loo. The view of Ely Cathedral across the fens was stunning. Hares sported on the lawns below.

The property is a wedding venue and the lakes and lawns are being developed as a stunning backdrop for events. It is not quite there yet, but it is close.

Breakfasts are excellent and served in a beautiful dining/breakfast room.

It must be one of the most comfortable and stylish B and Bs in the country. All those five star reviews of TripAdvisor are well earned.

The Old Hall has earned it's formidable reputation and we would recommend it without hesitation.

Are there reservations? The sleep quality of the Cromwell suite was wonderful. There was a little traffic noise from the highway although the owners are doing their best to screen this with a barrier of trees.

From the moment you step into The Old Hall, you feel like you have discovered a hidden gem - it is so much more than a Bed & Breakfast. Attention to detail has been carefully adhered to in restoring this wonderful home. The Morbey family are wonderful hosts; full of local knowledge and happy to help you with all aspects of your stay. The breakfast was the 'icing on the cake' with a nice variety of items, freshly cooked to order. We stayed in the Cromwell Room for two nights, and felt like we were living in comfortable luxury.

The Old Hall is possibly the best BB I have ever stayed in,
We visited Ely on the 21st July and wanted to stay for 3 days, however a wedding was being held on the 22nd so we could only have the one day.
The whole place is faultless our stay could not have been better,
I would have no reservations in recommending The Old Hall for a special trip away.

We spent a weekend in Ely so as to be near Cambridge. Everything about Anthony and Alison's Old Hall is perfect. It combines stylish, cozy comfort with absolute luxury set in the tranquil Cambridgshire countryside. We stayed in the Steward room but had a look round the others and all looked gorgeous. Breakfast and afternoon tea left nothing to be desired. So much time and effort has clearly gone into renovating this beautiful old building and in ensuring that guests want for nothing during their stay . We'll definitely be going back.

Every bit as good(if not better) than previous reviews had stated, probably the nicest B&B I have ever stayed in(if you want a real treat then book the Cromwell Room). The breakfast was superb I wish we could have stayed longer
