Liz was very warm, welcoming, helpful, attentive, accessible, resourceful and easy-going throughout our 3-night stay in 'The Apartment' with our 3 year-old daughter. All areas are very well-appointed, i.e., the apartment itself (modern bathroom, modern full kitchen with modern washer/dryer, clean nicely-decorated living/sleeping space); the guests' common living room; the foyer; the dining area for breakfast (fine china settings, lovely...

Liz has created an oasis in the middle of Cambridge, walking minutes through the park to the sights of the city. Our room at the 1st floor landing was private, easily navigable up one short flight of stairs. Every amenity was provided - although I would suggest better lighting at the chairs so that one could read without being on... More

Best place we ever stayed. Liz our host was friendly and accommodating. Her breakfast was astounding and attention to details were second to none. Rooms included all the teas and coffee as well as a brownie! Slippers, robes and all the small things that mattered. Alas she is so popular, her bookings is full with good reasons but do try...

The owner was friendly and extremely helpful with matters in and outside the property. The room was very clean with great amenities. Our room was on the 2nd floor and required lugging suitcases up he stairs. The location was exceptional, close to the university and most restaurants. The breakfast was cooked (to order) by the owner and was very good.... More

Thank you so much for your review. We do have limited parking so spaces need to be booked in advance when you book your room. We are in the centre of the City so the entrance to the parking area is narrow and can be tricky for larger cars.However it is a handy spot to leave your car and discover... More

Duke House is so close to the centre of Cambridge, which is excellent; makes everything much easier, especially as they also have car parking spaces. There's a reason why the reviews here are so positive. Liz has created something very special. The rooms are well designed, and cover virtually every detail well. There's a handy plug socket near the mirror,... More

I stayed for two nights in the Gloucester room. Liz was very kind and welcoming. Everything was wonderfully clean, comfortable and luxurious. I really enjoyed the vegetarian breakfasts, especially the avocado on toast. The location is superb - 2 mins walk into the city itself, perfect for sightseeing all the lovely old colleges - and shops! I wouldn't stay anywhere... More

We would like to say a big thank you for our stay at Duke House. Our room (The Kent) and bathroom were of a very high standard. The breakfast was great with lots of choices. We were made to feel very welcome. Duke House is very close to the town and amenities.

Spending 4 days at Duke House with our 14 years old daughter we really appreciated the comfort of the self-catering apartment including the well-equipped kitchen.
