Lovely riverside inn, with comfy rooms and a popular restaurant

At a glance

Dogs welcome

The Lazy Otter enjoys an idyllic position, nestled on the banks of the River Ouse, ideally located between Cambridge and Ely. Comfortable bedrooms are all of a high standard. The restaurant overlooks the river with its boats and barges, and enjoys some lovely Fen scenery. The bar offers a range of real ales and guests can relax by roaring log fires in the cooler months. There is a very popular restaurant and the freshly cooked breakfasts are enjoyable. This is an ideal base from which to explore the countryside and delightful historic market towns.
