The Ely Hotel is one of our much-loved properties. So expect home-from-home comfort, a warm welcome, great hospitality, and full hotel service. Believe or not, this hotel was built with the proceeds of a bet! In 1865, a racehorse called Ely won the prestigious Ascot Gold Cup. The hotel was then named in their honour by the delighted racegoer. You’ll find it’s still a sure bet for a fabulous stay.
MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR STAY
We make a great base for stretching your legs on River Wey and Godalming Navigation walks, or enjoying Farnborough International Airshow. While National Trust sites West Green House Garden and Frensham Little Pond are nearby too. Farnham Castle Keep and Waverley Abbey, both run by English Heritage, are also highly popular destinations. There’s fabulous wildlife to see at Castle Bottom National Nature Reserve and Bird World, and breath-taking scenery in South Downs National Park. Get your thrills at Thorpe Park or view the Royal Military Collection at world-famous Sandhurst. And remember, Ascot Racecourse, home to some of the world’s best racing, is just 20 minutes away. Maybe some the original Ely Hotel owner’s luck will rub off on you!
