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

A great place to stay just behind Christ's Pieces meaning you are in Cambridge city centre whilst still having a quiet location. Liz is friendly and welcoming on arrival but you are free to come and go and feel as if you have the house to yourself. We stayed in the Cambridge suite which was bright and sunny with a... More

There was a tea tray in the room with homemade cake which was replenished every day. Comfy bed and brilliant breakfasts with a choice of full english or continental. All local and... More

If there is a better B & B in Cambridge then it must be a phenomenal place to stay. We stay in a mix of accommodation on trips away and like to pick places like this to make it more of a treat. Liz is a friendly host and will help out with anything that you need during your stay.... More

We stayed at Duke House for 3 night in March and it was just perfect. Liz is a delightful host. She is always happy and could not be more helpful. The rooms are lovely - we had the Cambridge room which has a really nice deep bath. Everything is spotlessly clean. Breakfast is brilliant - everything you need to set... More

Although this is quite expensive for a B&B, it is very high quality and so represents pretty good value for money. It is an excellent location, just a short distance to the centre of Cambridge and the colleges. Our room was exceptionally well equipped and very comfortable, with great attention to detail. Our host was very helpful and we had... More
