Fantastic wedding

We had our wedding reception here in September. From the first time we contacted them, nothing was too much trouble. We couldn't fault anything on the day, everything was perfect. Sam their wedding coordinator did a great job, setting everything up and making sure little details were complete. The hotel was a bit basic but had a really good night sleep and room service was great. Would 100% recommend the Ely for weddings and a place to stay. Thanks so much!

Our wedding

We had our wedding reception here and from start to finish it was amazing. On the day everything ran very smoothly and nothing at all was to much trouble. Food came out on time and was absolutely delicious. The disco was fab and the evening buffet was perfect.

Perfect venue, made our day so special,

Don't think I've ever danced so much in my life! Loved how intimate it was, everyone was nearby so I got to see all my guests properly. The staff were absolutely lovely and so helpful. The DJ you provided as part of our package was fab, didn't bat an eye at our more unconventional song choices and got everyone moving. Oh and the food was so good. Those roast potatoes!! I dropped one on my dress and the gravy stain still reminds me of how good that food was ??

Wish I could do it all over again
