We were given a lovely, friendly welcome by Paul the housekeeper. Our room, Gloucester, was perfect for us, with a tea tray complete with homemade chocolate brownies. Yum. 'Proper' milk was available from the fridge out on the landing outside our room, as well as bottles of water & wine from the fridge/honesty bar. When we said it was our... More

Liz is the consummate hostess and chef. The breakfasts were first class and more than generous. We were in the York room which on first blush seemed a tad tight for space--but as small as the bedroom was, the bathroom was huge (or equal square footage). Spending the days out and about from this perfectly located B&B meant the room... More

The Duke House is just the job. Far better than any 4 Star Hotel. I can not augment the great reviews already written apart from underlining the quality of the Sausages. If we visit Cambridge again soon we will stay there no question. In fact we have already booked a room for friends.

Hugely central, on a lovely quiet Cambridge sidestreet. 2 minutes walk from the Clarendon Arms, the best pub in Cambridge, and with character and comfort by the bucketload. Liz and Rob, the owners and hosts are wonderfully friendly and accommodating. The breakfast is fantastic, with, I don't hesitate to say, the finest Sausages in the land. Stay here if you... More

My wife and I used to live in Cambridge, so we know it well. Last weekend we visited to catch up with some old friends and decided to stay at Duke House, what a great decision it was. It is absolutely as central as you could get, ten minutes walk from the centre and slap bang in the middle of... More

I wholeheartedly agree with all the exceptional reviews on this site. The Duke House is beautiful, perfectly located, quiet, and comfortable. There is just the right balance of hospitality and privacy. Liz is a welcoming, gracious hostess. My friend and I are 2 women in our early 30s, traveling around England together after finishing intense surgical residencies in the States,... More

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Duke House in Cambridge, UK. They welcomed our two young nephews who absolutely loved their room and the lovely breakfasts. Of course, we all enjoyed. It is warm, inviting and modern with traditional charm in the heart of Cambridge. As we were there for the final of the World Cup, our hosts made great... More

The Duke House B&B is wonderful. Liz, the owner is a genial host, warm and welcoming. Our bedroom was on the small side, but the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was huge. There is a lovely bathtub and a separate shower with fantastic water pressure. The huge towels were the best we have ever experienced. There was tea, coffee and... More

My husband and I have just returned from a one night stay at Duke House - what a treat. Liz's welcome was warm and helpful (moving her car so we could park as we had arrived earlier than planned & letting us into our room early as it was ready) and the accommodation is beautiful. We stayed in the Cambridge... More

A great deal of personal care and attention have gone into this luxury B&B (with distinguished connections!) - and we would definitely stay again. Just off Parker's Piece, in one of Cambridge's most characterful areas (a network of streets of pretty Victorian terraced cottages) and a short easy walk to Regent's Street and the city centre, we really enjoyed our...
