There's not much that I can add to the other positive reviews - a very comfortable and well run luxury B & B. Bedrooms are very comfy and the beds nice and soft. Everything clean and tidy. Everything works. A home from home - but better. And the breakfast is great. Too tempting to stick to my diet, but I...

My partner and I have just returned from a truly pleasurable stay at the Duke House, Cambridge for a Valentines break. We both thoroughly enjoyed the accommodation and have nothing but good things to say. The booking was very last minute but with such a beautiful B&B, in the heart of the city, we were lucky to get a room...

We have got into the habit of searching out top class b&bs instead of overpriced hotels, and Duke House proved to be just that when we visited Cambridge for a long wedding weekend. Our two nights were almost perfect from beginning to end, the only minor grouch being the lack of a dressing table and mirror (owner Liz Cameron promised...

Our family of five had a lovely weekend in the Cambridge and Wellington rooms at Duke House. The rooms were beautiful and spotlessly clean, the breakfast was delicious with local and homemade food. Very friendly staff, great service. A perfect place to spend some days in Cambridge!

We stayed 2 nights at Duke House whilst visiting Cambridge. We stayed in the Gloucester room which was well appointed, had some lovely thoughtful twists, with an extremely comfortable bed and pillows and a large modern bathroom. It was quiet, central and Liz was a delightful, friendly host who provided a truly delicious and quality breakfast. The house is a...

I've reviewed this place before but I just wanted to say it is still a great place to stay. The rooms are warm and cosy - you can forget about the grey Cambridge winter weather - and the center of Cambridge is just a brief walk away. Breakfast is served downstairs with lots of tasty options. Thanks Liz!

We had only one night due to availability in this deservidly popular boutique B&B, so don't delay booking if your are considering, as this was a real treat.
