Fantastic recent stay at this perfectly positioned Guesthouse close to Cambridge centre. All attractions and shops are a very short walk away. The rooms are very well appointed and the owners obviously have an eye for detail. The housekeepers keep the place impeccably clean. The bath was massive and the bed to die for. I had a fantastic nights sleep...

This was the third time we have stayed at Duke House and it was just as wonderful as we remembered. The rooms are styled beautifully and it is super convenient, being just a short walk to the centre of Cambridge. Everything was very clean and breakfast was superb - great selection of local produce, cooked to order (tasty cakes in...

A faultless bed and breakfast - friendly, helpful hosts, exceptionally clean, wonderful breakfast and a great location. Felt like like being in a good friend's home. Off-street parking is available if arranged in advance. Otherwise parking could be a better tricky. Would stay again if ever near Cambridge.

Your very kind comments are much appreciated. Car parking in the city centre is as you rightly say a premium facility now - we are fortunate to have limited spaces at the rear of Duke House, which we can reserve for guests at time of booking if space is available.

I had an absolutely lovely three-night stay at Duke House and I couldn't have asked for better Cambridge accommodations. The B&B is charming and the location is perfect with everything a short walk away. I had the York room and it was cozy and wonderful (with a huge, gorgeous bathroom). Liz made me feel so very welcome, was so helpful,...

Duke house is fabulous. Very convenient walking distance to the main area of Cambridge. Fantastically renovated. Breakfast was great, they source their food as locally as possible, Nice touch. Wish we could have stayed longer!

We do our very best to support local suppliers for our breakfast table - not only is produce local and fresh but we feel our guests prefer the taste of quality products which are homemade in some cases, such as our marmalade and cakes that we offer guests in their room on arrival. Thank you for your kind comments.

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...

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...
