This really is a very special B & B. Welcoming, friendly owners who run an excellent establishment. The York room was small but cosy with a very comfortable bed and pillows. The en suite was superb. It was too cold to sit out on the balcony but it would be great in warmer weather. Breakfast was excellent with a wide... More

In Cambridge over the New Year for a wedding and had a wonderful stay at the Duke House. Charming and cosy with a large sprinkling of style, the hosts deliver just the right amount of attention to make your time there special. Breakfast was a treat and the bed with its sumptuous linens and soft pillows turned every night into... More

This is more than a B and B. In the case of the Dukes' House B and B should stand for "bed and brilliance".We were very impressed with the decor and comfortable bed, also the very colourful healthy and homemade breakfast buffet and choice of hot dish.Something for everyone to feel throughly spoiled. The owners Liz and Paul are joined... More

Sometimes you don't want to share your favorite little treasures because you want them to be there when you need them. Duke House is just one of those treasures. It's a 6 star hotel wrapped up in a quaint English home. The rooms are beautiful. The beds are first class comfort. The living room is gorgeous and cozy. And the... More

We stayed here for one night in December, as we had tickets to see Passenger at The Corn Exchange and had sought a central location where we could walk to the venue rather than drive. It is perfect with a beautifully styled interior, a welcoming atmosphere that makes you feel relaxed as soon as you enter. Its close proximity to... More

Stayed 15th and 16th Dec. what a credit this beautiful B&B is to hard working Liz and her team. Beautifully styled and decorated with some lovely touches - fantastic welcoming service, perfect location and superb breakfast (thanks for the gluten free!). It felt so homely and is the most comfortable place that I had ever stayed - even opened the... More

Thank you for your very kind review. It was so lovely that you felt relaxed enough to remain in your PJ's to greet your son. I think this was a first at Duke House! - We are more than happy to meet special diet requirements (ie. gluten free) - a little pre-notice is all we need - and for an... More

Stayed here one night part work, part pleasure.........and indeed it was! The house is literally perfectly styled, the bedroom extremely comfortable, every possible detail attended to. The public lounge was dressed for Christmas and couldnt have been lovelier. I had a drink before bed and after the pub (great local, The Clarendon) with Socks the house cat perfecting the picture....

저희는 가장 큰방인 캠브릿지룸에 묵었습니다. 왠만한 호텔보다 좋은 청결상태. 아늑한 영국식 방과 거실. 멋진 야외데크. 욕실은 특히 고급져요. 아침도 완전 맛났어요 - 식사는 과일과 요거트, 시리얼만도 아주 고급스러운 수준으로 배가 차는데, 선택메뉴 중 영국식 블랙퍼스트의 스크램블드에그는 정말 만족스럽구요. 또 다른 선택메뉴인 연어 플래이트도 아주 훌륭했어요. 식전빵인 크로와상도 쫄깃. 오후엔 룸마다 진짜 맛있는 브라우니가 제공되요. 대박 맛남. 브라우니와 함께 제공되는 티는... More

Over breakfast at Duke House a frequent visitor to Cambridge said that she'd tried many Cambridge hotels and hadn't liked any of them.So, like us, she was giving a top-of-the-range B & B a try instead. The glowing reviews of Duke House are well merited. The location is excellent, in a quiet residential street but only a short walk from... More
