The Ellis-Miller House in Ely is praised for its unique architecture, comfortable furnishings, and superb location. Guests appreciate the proximity to local attractions and the view of Ely Cathedral. While some maintenance issues are noted, the property's design and the responsiveness of the housekeeper are highlighted positively.

Guests that stayed at this property said

The property is described as mainly clean, though some guests suggested that attention to detail, such as window cleaning, could enhance the experience.

The location is highly regarded for its convenience to Ely, Cambridge, and the Fens, with special mention of the view of Ely Cathedral from the property.

Guests find the house comfortable and well-appointed, with a few suggestions for additional amenities like a stepping stool in the kitchen.

The facilities are generally appreciated, especially the design and appointments. However, some guests mention the need for repair work and minor issues with appliances.

There is no mention of gifts or special thoughtful touches provided by the host, so it is not possible to assess this category.

    It was an easy trip into Ely, with many things to do there. There is a very useful map of Ely, with car parks, on the local authority website. And the Fens were on our door step. From the living room window you can see, across the many flat fields, Ely Cathedral. Everything worked as expected and the problem with the 'hard to read' WiFi password was fixed within a couple of hours, thanks to the housekeeper. A stepping stool would be a useful addition to the kitchen as the wall cupboards are quite high.

    This was our third visit and we will be back. Thank you

    ..really well designed in that cool midcentury modern form. We loved it and the owner's taste and appointments. Not exactly warm but fun and engaging...but it is special. As presented and better. A bit cool but it is Ely in the Spring! Thanks for sharing the space.
