Mirva Family with young children Stayed: May 15

Friendly and cozy guesthouse

We stayed two nights and slept fairly well. The continental breakfast was nice. There is coffee/tea/hot chocolate available in the machine 24-hours. Also milk, juice and cookies. If you're coming from London by a train, I recommend getting off at the Cambride train station. It's much easier to get a cab and catch a bus. The bus C7 runs aprox every 20 mins. Read more

Likes?
Very friendly and welcoming staff. Place was very clean. Buss stop across the street.
Dislikes?
The room needs little bit updating, maybe changing the carpet would do miracles!

Phil Family with older children Stayed: Dec 14

Clean, convenient and very friendly

We only had one night (and my parents stayed in another room) and it was all fine with no issues or problems. Very friendly and helpful staff at all times. Nice size rooms which were clean and comfortable. Don't be put off by the big road it is on, the room was very quite at night. The only gripe was that whilst the bathroom was perfectly clean and usable, it could really do with redecorating and refitting as it was pretty tired and worn looking. Read more

Likes?
Most welcoming, friendly and helpful staff.
Good size rooms.
Convenient for Cambridge but without the over inflated prices.
Plenty of parking.
Dislikes?
Bathroom in need of upgrade.
Would have likes the choice of a cooked breakfast (although we stayed new years eve so that may be why it wasn't on offer).

Very pleasant guesthouse in outskirts of Cambridge

Stayed for 14 days, quiet room to the garden, can perhaps be noise from traffic on front side, but I don't know. 4 miles from centre of Cambridge, bus stop near guesthouse, bus Citi7, bus stop Shelford Road, near Reed Close. Bus every 20 minutes at daytime. Food and off licence straight over the road, supermarket Waitrose 10 minutes walking away. I didn't have breakfast, even if it was included in the price, so I can't comment it. The staff were angels, always helpful and very kind. Read more

Daisy Family with young children Stayed: Jul 14

Friendly comfortable guest house.

My husband and I checked in with our 10weeks old daughter. We were gated by a very friendly lady who showed us around. We had a nice family room. Unfortunately it did not have a bath which would have been ideal for our daughter but the staff did offer us a baby bath if we wanted, we forgot out travel cot but this was also provided for us :-)
Had we have had our two year old the fact that the room was close to the door bell in the evenings might have been a problem but as it was it was fine. Read more

Likes?
The lovely staff. They happily held and played with our baby while we are breakfast.
The coffee in the free machine was tasty.

Great stay. Will definately be back. I used to have my own guest house, so thats saying something!

We were greeted by a lady who was very happy to see us. We contacted them ahead of time to say that we would need to book in before 2pm as we were going to my sons graduation. They welcomed us in even though the rooms weren't ready and offered an iron so make sure our clothes were tidy. We were not pestered, the room was spotlessly clean, and we had an excellent nights sleep without any road noise even though we were at the front. Read more

It was spotlessly clean. We saw it on TV, so had high expectations. We weren't disappointed.

Excellent location was perfect for both Addenbrooke's hospital and for Cambridge

We needed a place to stay that was close to both Addenbrooke's hospital and Cambridge as we live 125 miles from the hospital and I had to be in early in the morning and would require to stay in for up to two days so location was top priority. The guest house fitted our requirements exactly, easy for my family to visit me in hospital and for visiting Cambridge when not at the hospital. The owners looked after us very well and attended to all our needs very well. Read more

Lovely staff, very good breakfast , all day and night coffee , tea and fresh water available

I stayed 5 nights to visit Cambridge especially choir events of a Dutch boys choir. I travelled without car, but that is not a problem, because there is a busstop in front of the guesthouse.
Only on sunday night there are no busses. Also to visit London by train is very easy from this guesthouse.
I slept very well, because my room was in the back so no traffic noise from the street. Sometimes a bit noise from rooms upstairs.

Reasonable accomodation for the price

I thought everything seemed reasonable for the price and staff were very friendly and helpful but I had a really poor nights sleep because of very loud continuous banging which shook my bed and continued until 11:45pm. I assumed some diy disaster had occured and nearly got dressed to ask that the banging could be stopped because I couldnt sleep but eventually it stopped. But it was very disruptive and quite stressful as I had an important job interview next morning. Read more

Clean, comfortable room and friendly, helpful staff. Top marks all round!

We stayed for two nights at the Ayah Villa Guest House, visiting Cambridge for a short weekend break. The guest house is on the busy Shelford Road, but set back enough for it to be quiet and relaxed. As non-drivers, we used the bus to get to Cambridge, which are frequent and cheap, taking a little under twenty minutes to get to Cambridge city centre (there is also ample parking at the guest house), so we found it a good "base" from which to head in to town.

The heating of room #2 is weak, but we always have a separate electric radiator to our disposition, so the problem is not a big one!

very welcoming

my booking couldn't be found initially, possibly because I'd booked and paid online but this was resolved in a few minutes. We were told beforehand that complimentary hot drinks were available from the kitchen which was fine for us as our room was 5 yards from the kitchen but I would be more bothered if my room was much further away..

Comfortable, clean accommodation close to Cambridge

We had a lovely time staying here - room was very nice and clean. Bus stop right outside into Cambridge (took about 25 mins). Read more

Likes?
Owner was very friendly and went out of her way to research answers to questions we had about local transport, parking costs etc. Great breakfast - includes cooked to order hot food.
Dislikes?
Family room (sleeps 5) is rather cramped. My sons didn't like having to share a double bed - maybe better to have 1 double and 3 singles in the room (even bunks to give more floor space).

Hayden Young couple Stayed: Sep 11

Clean, Comfortable & Convenient

Different people want different things from their stay; ours was to attend the civil partnership at a nearby venue and wherever we go we tend to spend little time in the guest house/hotel.
Our room was clean and comfortable. There was plenty of storage space. We had digital television and free wi-fi. The bathroom was small, but big enough for everything we needed to do in it and the shower had excellent pressure and plenty of hot water.
Breakfast was from 7:30 till 9:00 with at least 6 Read more

Likes?
different cereals, fruit, yogurt, juice, toast as well as the cooked to order English breakfast.
Louise is perhaps the greatest asset the place has; she is welcoming, enthusiastic and helpful.

Friendliness

Louise made me very welcome, greeted everybody with a lovely smile, was polite and very helpful even though I did not want a cooked breakfast (don't like them). The guest house was very close to the church and wedding ceremonies I attended on Friday, which made it epecially attractive for me. Read more

The shower was excellent - did not expect a power-shower; the duvet cover was very much appreciated by me - as it was very Continental. The room was large, lighting excellent.Everything was just right

Nice staff, but rooms could have been cleaner than they were.

Short stay for a wedding Read more

Response

We are really sorry that you had a bad experience. We take great care to clean the rooms but often if the window is left open to let in some fresh air, the dust comes in too. There is a lot of building work going on in the surrounding area so we are constantly dusting but unfortunately we are unable to do this continuously. We have just bought a new vacuum cleaner so hopefully the carpets will be much better.

Handy location for travelling around Cambridge

Adequate in terms of size of room, (family room with two double beds and one single)- slightly scruffy bathroom which needs to be bigger to accommodate the number of people in that room. Breakfast OK. Friendly owner. Read more

Response

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. We are a B&B not a hotel and I have seen much smaller bathrooms in hotels charging twice as much. As for the taxi, Erika called the Taxi company on your behalf as a favour; she is Hungarian and the taxi company probably did not understand her accent very well. I would have thought that if you knoew you were going to a wedding you would have pre booked a taxi to make sure one was available.

Likes?
Informal; owner was friendly and accommodating. Good car parking in front of house.
Dislikes?
Rather dishevelled interior; owner did not pay enough attention to detail when asked to book a taxi for my family to attend a wedding, so one party had to wait for another car to arrive

Paul Mature couple Stayed: Apr 11

Dissapointing, sub standard accommodation and breakfasts.

Poor - in our opinion it can only be described as somewhere to sleep that is (marginally) preferrable to sleeping in the car!
We stayed two nights in dirty rooms, sleeping on hard beds, and enduring revolting breakfasts. We can honestly rate this as one of the worst places that we have stayed and we certainly would never return there.

We should have realised that something was very wrong when we looked at the guests comments book at reception (most appears to be in the same handwriting). Read more

Response

We were not aware that you were dissatisfied with the room. We would have been happy to change it for you. I can also asssure you that our rooms are cleaned to a very high standard and you can see from previous reviews and comments in the visitors book that this is the case. The comments in this book are ALL genuine and we take offence to you stating otherwise. The breakfast room is swept and mopped after breakfast; crumbs are put there by the guests! Next time communicate with people.

Likes?
There wasn't very much to like, other than it was quiet, which we put down to the fact that we were the only guests the fist night, and there was one other guest staying the second night.
Dislikes?
Rooms not cleaned properly, Bathroom dirty (old soap residue and a toe nail on sink). Breakfast awful-hard (fried?) eggs/bacon covered in lettuce,ice cold cucumber/tomato slices,swilling in cold juice

Michelle Young couple Stayed: Nov 10

Very kind hospitality, clean, friendly and great breakfast!

We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed our stay very much. The hosts were very accommodating and saved us money by charging us a flat rate for a ride to where we needed to go rather than paying for a cab ride which was really nice. Having a hot breakfast every morning was wonderful. The price was right and was really convenient for us as students to stay while we were attending a conference in Cambridge. Read more

Terrible

No one on site to help. Room was cold and central heating wasn't working. Gave us a portable heater which didn't work. Portrait fell down in the middle of the night. Read more

Response

We are very sorry about your experience and we quite agree that the service you received was appalling. But we have now remedied the situation: we are now under new management; the heating has been fixed; there is someone on site 24/7 to greet guests. We are now going to give the best possible service and we apologise to our past guests who had a bad experience.

There was a smell of smoke in the rooms. Bedding felt cold and musty. Duvets was far too heavy
