Our family (Mum, Dad, kid and baby) stayed 2 nights in a room at Ayah Villa. We felt it was pretty poor value for £110 per night. The communal areas smelled of cats, the room was faded and old fashioned (nasty carpet, net curtains, etc) with a tiny bathroom. It was situated at the downstairs front of the house so we were disturbed all night by traffic noise and returning guests. At 1am someone rang the bell because the front door had been locked and guests didn't have a key for it. Only the awful coffee from the famous coffee machine is available at breakfast and you miss out on the cooked breakfast unless you can wait till 8.30am. On the positive side the staff were very friendly and the bed was quite comfortable. So far a standard overpriced B&B, worth maybe half of the hefty price tag.
Our main gripe was the Jesus propaganda everywhere. The most annoying example was the Christian internet radio channel from the USA playing loudly over breakfast. We were too embarrassed to protest but it was very intrusive. Normally it would have been funny, but after a bad nights sleep it was irritating.
This is my first ever hotel review, but I chose Ayah Villa based on the positive reviews on Tripadvisor, so I felt that our experience should be made available to others.
