        freindly staff,being welcomed within 2 mins of entering bar area,no one at hotel reseption but this is understandable and was checked in within 5mins after free phone call to main building,breakfast staff was over worked until help arived to take orders..kind regards mr R Park [marriott hotel employee]

        smaller juice glasses as only two jugs on breakfast buffet witch runs out when 30 guests seating at same time, as staff had to fill jugs at least 3 times while my daughter and myself enjoyed a very nice breakfast

        7.0

        Good convenient location and quiet at night for a good night's sleep! Basic but clean accommodation. Free wi-fi was very useful.

        Service at breakfast time wasn't great - too few staff on duty

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        Stayed at the Ely several times. Convenient location, quiet, clean rooms with the added bonus of a nice pub alongside, which serves good quality, reasonably priced meals. Good breakfast is included in the price. When this hotel is on offer it is a good basic hotel.

        Rooms are clean and functional but the furniture appears to be getting a little tired and is need of a refurb.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        The staff were very polite helpful and accommodating and went out of their way to make sure your stay with them was excellent. The only grievance I have is that I booked two double rooms on line and when we checked in only one double was booked the other was twin. Both couples were married and wanted a double bed. The hotel was fully booked so they couldn't change our booking, so they pushed two singles together. We managed for one night but had the stay been longer it would not have been acceptable. Please ensure when booking for your clients, you get the booking correct as apparently you book straight on their system.

        The room was very nice very comfortable bed good restaurant with very attentive staff could not fault it for £54 Inc superb breakfast

        I found it to be a relaxing environment after a busy 2-3 days. Staff were friendly & helpful & it was a good base for me to discover a little more of my previous generations surroundings & its ongoing changes. A well-ordered place.

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        We found the cooked breakfast very bland.. and the single bed mattresses very soft edged for sitting............and duvets much too heavy for summertime!

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        The Ely is a lovely hotel, friendly staff and the facilities of the hotel a great. The restaurant serves a nice meal.

        Found the room a little too hot for our liking. Just having a doona/douve as a bed cover and no air conditioning made us overheat in bed, sheets would be good. Although, this is not unique to this hotel, it seems to be common in the uk.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        The hotel was more than adequate for our stay to visit family in the local area and was quite comfortable. We would use it again

      • Couple
        10.0

        The receptionist was very good, very welcoming. The rooms were a good size and breakfast excellent.

        The only thing was no Air-conditioning, but was not expected at the price.

      • Single
        7.8

        Reasonable hotel at a fair price free internet access

        Further from Camberly than i thought
