“24th night (Christmas eve), 2013”
Reviewed 27 December 2013 via mobile

The staff was v friendly and courteous. And the room looked v comfortable, neat & clean.

However, the bed was not v comfortable and I had a backache from the sagging mattress in the morning.

Break fast was okay. Nothing fancy. Apart from the option of toasting bread, no other hot breakfast on the menu. Primarily cereals, some fruit, & yogurt.

Stayed December 2013, travelled with friends

I spent one night here, in a very large room with three single beds for my two children and me. The welcome we relieved was effusive and the room was more than adequate, with a large clean bathroom en suite.
Excellent parking and I was able to leave the car there all day while I was in Cambridge, which I appreciated.
It was a bonus to be able to get hot drinks and biscuits on tap.
It is easy to jump in the bus to the city centre, but not recommended during the rush hour!
I would certainly return, should I need to come to Cambridge in the future.
Just one point: the postcode on Trip Advisor reads CB22 instead of CB2, which resulted in a very long detour.

The people were charming, engaging and effortlessly helpful. The accommodation was clean and spacious. A very adequate breakfast and all in all very reasonably priced. I expect to go back if back in Cambridge... can't say fairer than that really.

Room Tip: Our room was next to the front door and we were disturbed by that, so avoid if possible.

A very sincere welcome awaited us at Ayah Villa. Our room was clean, comfortable and warm, which was very much appreciated given that we were staying over the coldest three days so far in 2013! Our bed was very comfortable and we slept well on both nights of our stay. The en suite was clean and well equipped.
The service was good and the buffet breakfast was more than plenty. We especially appreciated the choice of breakfast foods and the daily bowl of fresh fruit to choose from. Parking was no difficulty with sufficient parking bays on the large off-road forecourt.
Very good value for money, we would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at Ayah Villa for the first time this week. Parking was easy, and the welcome was so truly genuine that we really felt happy to be staying there. We stayed in room 2 which is on the ground floor. It's a beautiful room with the most comfortable bed I've slept in for ages. Despite being near the entrance, we didn't hear any noise from other guests even though it was very busy. Large bathroom with an excellent shower. Everywhere was so clean.
Breakfast was good, lots of choice and although I thought I might miss having tea/ coffee making facilities in the room - I didn't - because they are available in the breakfast area. If you don't want to go out for a meal (and who does after a 7 hour drive!) you can order a take away and eat it in the breakfast area, with all the cutlery & crockery you need on hand. We had to go to Addenbrookes and the Ayah Villa was very close. We did try to book to stay there again next week but they're full - Oh well - we'll keep trying - as I said at the start - this will always be our first choice for Cambridge.

Room Tip: Room 2 is great - though talking to some of the other guests it seemed that everyone was happy with...

This was a great location as I was doing work at Addenbrookes and was literally 5-10min drive. I ended up arriving a lot later than planned (9.00pm) so my stay was brief. But it fit the bill perfectly - cheap, surprisingly large room with ensuite and all very clean. No issues with the owner/worker at reception of my late arrival and she still kindly showed me around. Breakfast was 'continental' style help your self - good selection and good coffee. Great for short stays this part of Cambridge and would happily return for my next business trip.
