We've stayed at this conveniently-located B&B twice in four months; we loved it so much that as soon as we returned home after our first visit, we booked a return trip! What we loved about it: • The rooms are beautifully decorated. Both the York and the Gloucester (the bigger room, highly recommended) are well-designed, clean, quiet and comfortable. The... More

Apologies for the lateness of this review. we first stayed in this gorgeous bed and breakfast in May when we had booked to see a show with friends at the Corn Exchange. We had such a lovely time we decided to stay again for our Wedding anniversary in December, combining it with a visit to Midsummer House restaurant. Duke house... More

We were lucky to find there was room at Duke house at very short notice, much needed respite after a funeral, Liz was kind enough to 'upgrade' us to the Cambridge suite and we can unreservedly recommend it. Breakfast was excellent but oddly one lasting memory will be the pillows - I had the best night's sleep I have had... More

So glad you enjoyed your stay and the pillows! I agree parking needs booking and I can give directions for access to the parking area. More

I have stayed at Duke House a few times and have just spent a night in the latest room addition, The Kent. Big bed, just as comfortable as all the other rooms, rather spacious with a large bathroom. Liz was her usual charming self, taking any request in her stride and, of course, her breakfast of local produce is awesome.... More

Duke House is simply excellent. since we last stayed Liz and Rob have added a fifth room and an apartment to the same high standard as the other charming rooms. Liz's breakfasts are so good that it is almost impossible to work out which mouthful to save until last! Even Rob has got in on the act with a vat... More

Stayed here in March 2015 & it was superb, Returned in November 2015 & just as good. Faultless......And an incredibly convenient location for exploring Cambridge. The private Car Park is another plus point, but best to book as limited spaces.

The central location of this B&B (about a 5 minute walk from the bus station if arriving via National Express, 15 minute drive from the railway station and literally minutes from Cambridge city centre) is the most compelling reason to stay at this B&B. Good amenities and a very comfortable vibe all around.

Was idea with parking and convenient location given walking distance from town centre. Rooms were on the small side but more hotel level standard than B&B, including being provided with slippers. Excellent breakfast! One of the rooms had a balcony area but the sitting room was also good to relax in. There was an honour bar. Liz was friendly and... More

in a nutshell Duke House is a FABULOUS place to stay. I was visiting friends and didn't want to stay in a hotel. I found duke house, read the brilliant review and booked and I wasn't disappointed! The room and en-suite (York ) was perfect and It felt so secure, snug and luxurious. Honestly such a comfortable bed too. Breakfast... More
