Hotel Barge Waternimf

Muddy says: Oh buoy! A luxury hotel in a converted old Dutch barge moored at Ely’s Waterside offers a unique stay on the River Great Ouse.

Bedroom Waternimf

The Waternimf built in 1906, started life carrying cargos around the dutch waterways. Foward wind 110 years and she’s been given a massive facelift and tranformed into a luxury floating hotel.  The fully-kitted out hotel is a unique river retreat for individuals, families and groups wishing to escape the stresses of modern life. The Waternimf boasts five luxury double en suite cabins, with all the standard amenities you’d expect from a top-notch hotel, including full-sized showers, TV, wi-fi, bathrobes, breakfast and complimentary tea and coffee.

Waternimf’s interior is a mix of light décor and oak furniture. There’s a separate lounge and breakfast/dining room room. Skylights above the dining area provide beautiful natural light and starlit night-skies.  Her wide decks are perfect for summer evenings to sit with a cool drink and soak up the atmosphere by the river.

The hotel is located on the beautiful riverside in Ely, a stone’s throw from the City’s famous historic Cathedral, eclectic mix of shops and selection of fabulous places to eat and drink.  It’s a perfect place to get a group of friends together and enjoy a break away.
