Cathedral House – Sunday Telegraph Review (Dated Sun. 14th April 2019)
The following segment from an article about Ely, entitled “Why England’s ‘floating Camelot’ should be your next city break”, appeared in the Sunday Telegraph on 14th April 2019:
Are the hotels down-at-’eel?
Quite the reverse. The front rooms at Poets House have superb views of the cathedral (B&B doubles from £170). Created from three townhouses, it has classy contemporary décor, much of it in delicate shades of grey, and rooms with stand-alone copper baths. The hotel takes its name from the Fenland writer Sybil Marshall – curiously more novelist than poet.
Few B&Bs have as much charm and character as Cathedral House, a Grade II listed Georgian building close to the cathedral (cathedralhouse.co.uk; B&B doubles from £90). Sometimes described as a “posh B&B” and very much a family home, it also offers self-catering in its Coach House. It’s stuffed with books and antiques, has a walled garden, and owners Jenny and Robin Farndale are welcoming. Excellent breakfasts and private parking.
