A fabulous five star boutique B&B in central Cambridge just 3 mins walk to the Grand Arcade in a quiet street. The building was once owned by Prince Richard, the Duke of Gloucester (the Queen's cousin), and some friends, whilst they studied at Cambridge university. Hence the name! Extended by the Prince when he studied architecture it now makes a... More

Interesting people from all over the world come to Cambridge, and at the Duke House you will meet some of them. Over delicious English breakfasts featuring local products, friendly conversations with other guests are common. Beds, bedrooms and baths are charming and comfortable, and the B & B is easy walking distance to everything in central Cambridge.Owner Liz is low-key... More

We spent 2 nights at this jewel of a B&B, it was absolutely perfect, Liz was charming and even checked us in early. The room was charming with incredible attention to every detail even better than it looked in the photos. The extra attention included a fridge in the hall way with chilled water and wine, fresh milk every day... More

From the moment we stepped through the door we knew that we had found a little gem in the centre of Cambridge. This B and BB (bed and birthday breakfast) was everything we needed plus so much more.... Thoughtful touches, those little somethings that make you feel very pampered were in every corner. We loved the packets of slippers by... More

Duke House was our last stop on a two week tour of the UK and we could not have been happier. We arrived a bit early but Liz greeted us graciously and our room happened to be ready. We found a parking spot with the permit provided by Liz and were able to settle into the Kent room for a... More

Great B & B in a perfect location for Cambridge. We had dinner at Midsummer House one night & Duke House is a pleasant 10 min stroll away & five mins walk from the centre of Cambridge. We stayed in the Wellington room which was very clean, comfortable & quiet. Liz gives you keys to the house which enables you... More

We rented an apartment in the Duke House. B and B and found it extremely comfortable and tasteful.our hostess was kind and helpful. The apartment had a lovely kitchen which we much appreciated, and there was a washer/dryer which was very useful. Everything was spotlessly clean. The location is quiet and very convenient to the university.

We stayed at Duke House for a couple of nights recently and can thoroughly recommend it for a visit to Cambridge. Its location is ideal being central but off the main highways, so very quiet. Duke House itself is beautifully furnished, clean and comfortable. We stayed in The Wellington room which was well equipped, the bed very comfortable with high... More
