A great deal of personal care and attention have gone into this luxury B&B (with distinguished connections!) - and we would definitely stay again. Just off Parker's Piece, in one of Cambridge's most characterful areas (a network of streets of pretty Victorian terraced cottages) and a short easy walk to Regent's Street and the city centre, we really enjoyed our...

Stayed here with my partner for one night on 15th July, after travelling down from a few nights in Norfolk, and had a really pleasant stay. As our host Paul was impeccable and was warm, friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. We booked the room way back in February as, like many others, found Cambridge Hotels to be... More

My wife and I stayed over the first weekend in July with our two year old daughter. Charming, immaculately clean and very comfortable bed and breakfast. Liz was a perfect host, great attention to detail, very accommodating and wonderfully helpful. Breakfast was lovely. Great location. Exceeded our expectations.

A real gem - very centrally located so everything is walkable. Our room was spacious with a large bathroom and was comfortable bordering on luxurious. The house is airy and light as many of the walls have been knocked through. Our stay was quiet (the house is off in a side street). The breakfast is just splendid with everything you... More

What a great find. We don't usually stay in B&Bs, having previously chosen hotels in preference. But Cambridge hotels are so expensive, and rather average; and the reviews for Duke House were so good, that we thought we'd give it a go. And we're very glad we did. We stayed in the Cambridge Room/Suite at the top of the house,... More

A great place to stay. Ranked #1 in Cambridge, and they deserve it! Liz and Rob go out of their way to accommodate you, and the food was excellent. The setup encourages interaction with other guests, and that was actually a high point of the visit. We dubbed Duke House "Duke College of Cambridge University" because the discussions over breakfast... More

We stayed here for three nights at the beginning of June. Liz runs and maintains an immaculate B&B! It’s felt like more than just a B&B, the rooms are beautifully decorated, and the place is spotless. We stayed in the smallest room which wasn’t a problem as there is room outside the bedroom for the cases. One minor gripe, we... More

This bed and breakfast is a cut above the rest. The location is brilliant for exploring Cambridge which is just a few minutes walk away. Although so close to Central Cambridge, it's in a quiet location. The B&B itself is beautifully quaint and clearly a lot of thought and effort have gone into the styling. There are lovely touches such... More

A slightly complicated set of May Ball arrangements meant that the two rooms we had booked were occupied by a total of 6 people over the two days. Some of us arrived late, some people needed breakfast when they weren't actually guests yet, and one poor person had to depart early and didn't get to technically stay at all despite... More
