The most hospitable hosts, Edna and Peter, have a modern B&B that is run in a way that puts all others to shame! Every attention to detail is included in the large en suite superior room, you want for nothing. Deserving of every 5 Star "Excellent" rating, I wish I could write a book about how fantastic our stay at...

We stayed here about a month ago as the hotels in Ely didn't look very impressive. What a wonderful little B and B this is. The hosts were friendly, welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. Our room was spotlessly clean, the bed exceptionally comfortable and there were many extras. I would thoroughly recommend The Gate House and the breakfast...

Absolutely outstanding little bed and breakfast which was ideally placed for me to get to work easily and quickly. Lovely welcome by Edna including fresh coffee brought up to my room. The room was very comfortable including wifi, tea and coffee, mini fridge, reasonable Tv, underfloor heating (not used in June) and a near silent ceiling fan (which was used!)....

The Gate House was an excellent base from which to explore Ely and the surrounding area. Our accommodation was superb, decorated and furnished with a stylish taste and care and even the smallest detail had clearly been considered. We had a good-sized room at the rear of the property, overlooking a quiet backwater. We were lucky enough to see a...

All the little extras was so nice, you felt like the owners really cared about the business and the room was super clean... We felt like our stay mattered to them, which is so rare. Would highly recommend a stay here and the view in our room was superb, this is an exercise on how a B&B should be run...

Could not be faulted in any way. Friendly, helpful and spotlessly clean throughout. I would recommend this place to anyone and the breakfast was excellent. The view was nice from the room and owners are very nice ........................................................................................................................

My husband and I expectation of our stay was blown away by Peter and Edna's warm and welcoming manner as the hosts to the BnB.

We booked for 2 nights to visit Ely cathedral and local national trust sites, Edna welcomed us warmly on arrival and made our stay extra special. Everything you could want and more are delivered, lovely handmade biscuits in your room, a great selection of coffee, tea, toiletries and an amazing breakfast selection with homemade jams.

I stayed here for one night with a work colleague as we had been doing some joint work with the owner. Parking was easy and convenient.

Could not be more pleased. A home away from home. Very clean and well presented. Breakfast menu excellent choice and food was first class. Some off street parking which was handy however there are spaces outside the property if needed. Will definitely stay here again :)
