My wife and I used to live in Cambridge, so we know it well. Last weekend we visited to catch up with some old friends and decided to stay at Duke House, what a great decision it was. It is absolutely as central as you could get, ten minutes walk from the centre and slap bang in the middle of... More

I wholeheartedly agree with all the exceptional reviews on this site. The Duke House is beautiful, perfectly located, quiet, and comfortable. There is just the right balance of hospitality and privacy. Liz is a welcoming, gracious hostess. My friend and I are 2 women in our early 30s, traveling around England together after finishing intense surgical residencies in the States,... More

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Duke House in Cambridge, UK. They welcomed our two young nephews who absolutely loved their room and the lovely breakfasts. Of course, we all enjoyed. It is warm, inviting and modern with traditional charm in the heart of Cambridge. As we were there for the final of the World Cup, our hosts made great... More

The Duke House B&B is wonderful. Liz, the owner is a genial host, warm and welcoming. Our bedroom was on the small side, but the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was huge. There is a lovely bathtub and a separate shower with fantastic water pressure. The huge towels were the best we have ever experienced. There was tea, coffee and... More

My husband and I have just returned from a one night stay at Duke House - what a treat. Liz's welcome was warm and helpful (moving her car so we could park as we had arrived earlier than planned & letting us into our room early as it was ready) and the accommodation is beautiful. We stayed in the Cambridge... More

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
