The last time I stayed at Duke House I concluded it was the best place to stay in Cambridge as it was much more friendly, welcoming, luxurious, comfortable and tranquil than any of the full service hotels and far better value. The locally sourced breakfast just keeps on coming, its proximity to the city centre continues to be a real... More

Duke House has it all. An ideal location for exploring the delights of Cambridge. The building is stylish and inviting. The decoration throughout is tasteful. The room was extremely comfortable with those little touches of luxury which make a stay memorable. Liz and her housekeeper, Paul were welcoming and attentive and the standard of food and service was excellent. Despite... More

Liz is a wonderful host and extremely helpful, nice breakfasts and extra touches, nothing too much bother . The room was slightly smaller than we are used to but more than made up for... More

Stayed at Duke House for 1 night whilst taking our son back to Uni. Arrived very early and Paul the 'housekeeper' was very helpful and friendly and let us park our car. The York was a lovely comfy room with a fabulous bathroom, breakfast next morning was just as good as the reviews say and I will be ordering the... More

Everything you read about this B&B is true, it's impeccably run. We stayed in the Cambridge room which is a little more expensive but worth it as you have your own little sitting room and desk, plus a lovely balcony, as well as your own spacious bathroom. It was quiet, airy, good wifi connection, great bed, sleep with the windows... More

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
