The hosts were friendly and helpful but not intrusive. You could come and go at your own convenience. Room was extremely clean and very comfortable. The chilled water dispenser was lovely in hot weather as was free fruit juice, and hot drinks, at all times
Free off-street parking is essential and not always available in towns. Bus service for getting to and from Cambridge was a lengthy journey but convenient and free to pensioners with bus passes! A bus timetable would have been helpful.
Overall, it was good value for money.

Loved my stay here, they looked after me and my family perfect.

I can’t believe the value for money this place provides £55 for an ensuite room in Cambridge is great I didn’t even realise until I got there that breakfast was include and free wifi along with free parking!!!

In my book this place is a gem I will not go anywhere but here when we come back later this summer.

Thank you to all the staff at ayah villa!!!!!!!!!!!

Very very reasonably priced. Pluses included self serve tea / coffee machine, biscuits, juices, toaster, microwave available at all times to guests. It is one of few BnBs where you can choose to buy a microwave meal and be able to heat it up and eat it in the dining room if you don't feel like going out! Self serve continental breakfast and eggs on request.

Minuses - room was small and there was quite a bit of road noise when the window was opened, however you cannot fault the cleanliness of the place. Also a bit further from Cambridge city than expected (there is a bus across the road and a park and ride nearby).

Although the room was large, it was downstairs & a lot of noise could be heard from upstairs. Bus across the road, but was further away from Cambridge than we thought. We stayed two nights, but the bed was not made. Parking difficult to get in the parking bay at times. Did not feel particularly welcome. Definetely would need a car to get around to restaurants. Continental breakfast.

Dear guest,
I am sorry to read that you were disappointed with your stay here at ayah villa. I would like now to address some of the points made in your review.
Noise from other guests; we try very hard to keep the environment at Ayah Villa very calm and friendly and always try to remind this to guests if they are being overly noisy. Although this is issue does not occur very often if we were informed we would have seen to it right away.
Parking difficult; we are here 24hrs a day and should anyone have any difficulty parking their car in to a parking space, we would be more than happy to help guide them in to a space.
Ayah Villa is situated three miles from town centre as described on our website. Access is very easy via the number 7 bus just outside the guest house or a drive in would take about 10 minutes depending on traffic. Locally we have two restaurants that also have parking facilities, they are both exactly one mile from us which is approximately 15 minutes walking or 5 minute drive.
Here at ayah villa we do our very best to provide the best value home from home stay, our rooms are clean and comfortable and we always try our very best to make our guests feel welcome and cared for as they are all very important to us.

We had a two night stay here in June. We had a family room as we had our 2 year old with us. A warm welcome, clean and tidy and we were allowed to drop off our bags earlier then check in time. Breakfast was nice however there is no cooked breakfast facilities which we was not aware off till arriving - however this was better for the waist line!

Room Tip: The bus into Cambridge from opposite was about £8 return for two of us and quite a long journey. We...

I stayed one night prior to a friend's graduation. It was clean, warm, welcoming, quiet and economical. Adequate parking (important in Cambridge!) and on a regular bus route to the centre.

Breakfast is "continental" plus eggs freshly boiled, fried or scrambled on request. Help yourself coffee, tea and fruit juice are available at all hours.

Not the softest bed I have had but I slept well. Not the poshest hotel in town, but it's just what I was looking for - a good economical bed and breakfast stop-over.

I would happily stay there again.
