This is probably the most charming hosted B&B we have stayed at. History seeps from every painstakingly cleaned brick. The 'laid back' ambiance, warm fireplace and plenty of reading material enhance the visit, as does Graeme's knowledge of the local area which he is more than willing to share. We were greeted each morning by Graeme with a hearty "Good... More

Despite the cold, wintry weather we were lovely and cosy. Our hosts - Graeme and June were wonderful hosts. From welcoming us and settling us in to preparing a magnificent breakfast that we ate from thoughtfully chosen pottery pieces - including some made by June. The breakfast room & sitting area have a lovely ambience surrounded by the garden. It... More

Whether it was booking a restaurant for us or cooking breakfast, our host Graeme was as good as everyone has already said. The bedrooms are comfortable and cosy on a cold night. There are personal touches in the decor and the shared spaces are pleasant as well. Highly recommended.

We had an evening planned in Clunes and wanted somewhere local to stay. The Dukes B&B was the ideal location. Our host, Graeme wasn't going to be around at our arrival, but he kindly left the keys with a local restaurant (where we were spending our evening). Later that evening, Graeme met us and we spent the latter end of... More

We had four nights at Dukes. Graeme was a great host, his breakfasts are amazing. Loved the character of the place. Clunes is an unusual place, pretty quite during the week. A lot more happening on the weekends.

My daughter and I stayed for one night at The Dukes in late June. It's an old pub with a colourful history, to which has been added a very nicely designed modern back section of lounge and dining room looking onto a garden. We had a great time socialising with the other guests in the cozy lounge, then dancing in... More

This is a delightful get away from Melbourne for a couple of nights or for tourists who would like to see more of the real Victorian countryside. Lovely old B&B with a very colourful history which owner Graeme will be pleased to explain. Cosy log fire to sit around in the lounge while watching the TV (bit on the small... More

A place to keep returning to. Our fifth visit to The Dukes B&B was as rewarding as each previous visit. An obliging couple, Graeme and June make their guests welcome and like part of their own family. Breakfasts are a legend. The historic building has a unique charm and a great place to meet up with friends. Accommodation is available... More
