I have stayed at Ayah Villa - 4-5 times for a week or so each occasion. The accommodation is clean and comfortable. The staff, Joy and Bless, and manager Simon are friendly and helpful. I have stayed on my own and with family, and cannot fault the friendliness and excellent service. Location is great too!

Stayed for 3 nights, & was made to feel very welcome by extremely friendly staff. It was clean & comfortable & reasonably priced. There was enough to choose from the continental breakfast & the only reason we didn't give a top rating was due to liking a full English breakfast. We would definitely stay again.

I am a bit confused by the couple of average reviews I am reading here. I have been travelling in a lot of places around the World, staying in hostels in South America, sleeping in "hotels" in India and camping in Africa and this guest house is far from being like a youth hostel. Ayah Villa Guest House is a... More

Very nice and friendly staff. Basic accommodation, but all working well and clean; good for a family with young children. Conveniently close to park and ride to the city centre of Cambridge. Included breakfast. Would come back again for a next visit.

Spent 4 nights here in early July 2015 in order to be near friends in Trumpington. The best thing I can say about this guest house is that the staff is friendly and brought fresh towels. The rooms and experience overall are truly spartan -- far from a traditional bed and breakfast, for sure. If you were definitely considering a... More

Pros: The staff was very friendly. Cons: Breakfast was very basic. The beds were terrible uncomfortable and lumpy. The bathroom was tiny, not to mention the shower. And it ran out of hot water every time I used it. No A/C. The curtains let a lot of light in early in the morning. They were very sheer. I'd expect light... More

Travelled with husband & daughter. I'd booked a triple room for £70 but when we arrived yes the room we were booked into had 3 single beds (a triple room you'd think) but she said she was only expecting 2 of us. Apparently when I'd booked it'd said 2 adults but my explanation to her was that I'd booked a... More

Dear guest I am writing in response to your above review. When booking a majority of hotels and guesthouses you have to inform the property of the number of guests who will be staying. When an additional guest is checked in, it will incur extra charges to cover costs ie, additional breakfast etc. Below we will try to address to... More
