Reviewed November 21, 2013

We had the pleasure of staying at Ayah Villa for three nights. It is deceptively large, there is plenty of parking and it's a stones throw from Cambridge city centre. We didn't hear any traffic noise or noise from other guests from our room even though it was fairly busy at the time of our stay. Our room was a good size modern and immaculately clean. The hosts were lovely people with an outstanding sense for hospitality. They made us feel very special. We will definitely stay here again. No need to look elsewhere. Do not hesitate to book.

In Trumpington about 10 min by car (or 10-15 by bus straight out front) from Cambridge, but Los very convenient to the main highways. Nice breakfast and juice, coffee and milk any time. Host offered to cook some eggs for breakfast almost every morning. Not expecting that, which was kind, but I declined as there was mor than enough fruit, jams, bread, cereals, cheese, yoghurt, etc.
I was in a downstairs room off the hall that was OK. The shower in ths particular room was a bit snug, but as it was only me it was OK.
The woman caretaker was quite friendly and certainly a hard worker. And although one might not see it straight away, a walk around the neighborhoods behind the Ayah is pretty nice. And there's a very nice big park en route into Cambridge.
Overall very good value and nice accomodation. Recommended.

Room Tip: Second floor might have better views.

Needed to stay near Addenbrookes and this B&B was very near. Had seen them on telly which is what made me look them up. Ayah Villa is clean, comfortable and you get a lovely welcome. Was very happy with my stay and cannot think of one bad word to say. Will definitely stay here again. What's more is it was £45 for the night. Amazing for the area

My son wanted to stay at the Ayah after seeing it on Four in a Bed. It was even better than we expected. A great welcome when we arrived and we felt like one of the family by the time our trip came to an end. We stayed for three nights ans we wished it was for longer. The buffet continental breakfast was really good and provided a great start to the day. The drinks machine was available for use 24 hours a day and provided a good choice of drinks. The room was large with lots of storage space and lovely and warm. We made good use of the dvd/cd player which was a nice bonus. The Bus stop was just across the road which was very handy. We would definitely stay here again everyone was so friendly and Faz even brought out the winners plaque so my son could have a photo. They deserved to win and we look forward to staying here again.

Room Tip: We had room 7 which Faz said was one of his favourites and we could see why. although it faced the r...

Thought we'd left it a bit late to book somewhere suitable in Cambridge but this place turned out to be ideal. Excellent value for money, very well located (although the instructions given to find it were not as accurate as those discovered later in their own leaflet). Very friendly and helpful staff - when the heating was not working on our first night they gave us their own fan heater and soon rectified the problem. They even carried my wife's bags. Shower was hot and easy to use - and I liked the tiling of the bathroom. Nice large room but beds were a bit soft. Thought I'd be cold but the duvet warmth was ideal. Plenty to eat and all day availability of drinks was good (kettles provided when drinks machine broke down). Bus stop just across the road for transport to Cambridge meant it was well used by Ayah guests. Would definitely book again.

Had the pleasure of staying at Ayah Villa Cambridge while down for my graduation this week. This brilliant wee B and B was just great in terms of location, value for money, parking, cleanliness and friendliness. The lovely ladies who take care of food/rooms are so helpful and welcoming.
Couldn't believe we were staying there while the channel four 'four in a bed' was on the tele! So of course, we were so keen to see how Faz and Wak got on. Delighted they won and deservedly so.
Would def return.

Room Tip: Maybe away from the front door,although no road noise, just coming and goings of guests.
