“A First Class Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2011

This is the second opportunity that I have had to take advantage of this excellent B&B facility. The proprietor and staff made every effort to ensure that my stay was both comfortable and pleasant. There is ample secure parking on site. The Old School B&B although within easy reach of Ely, maintains a semi rural position providing a quiet relaxing atmosphere. The room was very clean and spacious with an excellent wireless internet facility. The flat screen television, well stoked hospitality tray, and breakfast menu provided all of the comforts of home. I would highly recommend The Old School B&B for those requiring a high standard of accommodation whilst visiting Cambridgeshire.

Thank you so much for your kind review. I am always trying to provide the best service to guests of The Old School B&B, according to their individual needs, so I am very pleased you enjoyed your stay. I very much enjoyed the conversation we had, sparked by the name of the wireless network.

This charming b&b is a lovely place to stay, excellent food, a warm welcome and lots of advice on the local area. I was slightly worried that it was advertised as pet friendly and I am not a dog lover - however this was not an issue in the slightest. The only down side was there was no place local for food without driving to a nearby village.

One of the friendliest B&Bs we have stayed at. Very helpful owner who cooks a great breakfast. Off road parking in a quiet rural location. Superb local pub serving real ale & Thai food in the next village. The Old School B&B is close to the delightful town of Ely. This was one of the most pet-friendly places we have found – a doggy sitting service is even available! Children would love the ducks & ducklings in the garden.
