A luxury Grade II-listed hotel dating back to the early 1900s in the heart of historic Ely, with beautiful monochromatic interiors - breakfast and cream tea included

Situated in the historic centre of Ely, Poets House is perfectly placed for soaking up picturesque views of the cathedral and Oliver Cromwell's House. Exquisite authentic charm coupled with luxurious and innovative monochromatic design define this haven of comfort and tranquillity, which was unsurprisingly awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Throughout each of the guest rooms - which feature freestanding copper baths to soak in, sumptuous beds to sleep in, and views of the garden or the cathedral to meditate over - the building's period features have been carefully preserved. Luxurious duvets line the beds and you've tea and coffee facilities to make the most of, should you decide to put the 'Do not disturb' sign out on your door.

The Dining Room is central to any experience at Poets House. Choose from a range of delicious dishes, such as duck leg terrine and seared cod with garlic mash - and save room for dessert! You'll also wake up to a rather special full English each morning. Why not complete the set with a traditional cream tea or a cocktail in the Sonnet Bar?
