Very comfortable with top quality soft furnishings. A tray with tea, coffee, filtered water & homemade cake replenished every day.

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

We enjoyed our stay very much. We would recommend Duke House and completely agree with all of the praise previously written. The décor is tasteful and it is very clean. We were given a parking space so were delighted that we could walk just minutes and be in the heart of the city. Thank you to Liz and her 'team'.

We have stayed twice at Duke House- first for a college reunion we were attending, and second, having loved it so much, we rented out the entire place for our wedding weekend in Cambridge. Liz and her team could not have done more to make our wedding weekend run smoothly. The house and all of the rooms are beautiful, the... More

Pros: - reliable wifi in the room - scrumptious breakfast - great location (only a short walk into town) - fantastic service - clean and comfortable rooms Cons - the water in our shower drained rather slowly

Spent 3 nights at Duke House mid February - perfect in every way. Ideal location, no need for the car which was safely parked at the back of Duke House. Beautiful, cosy room with lots of personal touches including fresh flowers, chocolate brownies and even heart shape chocolates on arrival! Liz was a lovely host who was helpful in recommending...

Another lovely few days spent in Cambridge at Duke House. Gorgeous room, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Brownie on arrival on the tea tray was also extremely appreciated. :) Very close to the city centre so perfect to go out shopping, see the sights and get to great restaurants easily. A great little break, I always feel like I can... More

Another year on from my last visit and I find myself in the Wellington room, helping myself to a cup of tea and slice of delicious chocolate brownie ('on the house' of course). Every time I visit here is certainly a visit to remember, with beautifully decorated rooms and the most helpful hosts who produce the most comprehensive breakfast I... More
