Cooked also very good - I tried both English and smoked salmon and scrambled eggs and both excellent. Our room was spacious - nice touches eg water and plenty of...

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. We had The Cambridge, which is a charming top of the house room with vestibule and grand bathroom. Delightful balcony, where we enjoyed a cup of tea and tasty home made chocolate...

Just perfect, really! Well located, rooms impeccable, breakfast was delicious and Liz Cameron our hostess, extremely professional & nice! I was in the York Room, and the bathroom was incredible, no need to say I took a nice long bath after a tiresome day, just what I needed! Place was worth every penny!

For those looking for a place to stay in Cambridge look no further! Myself and my partner stayed in the Cambridge Suite, situated on the very top floor which consisted of a mini reception room, ensuite bathroom (beautiful and massive bath and gorgeous shower), the main bedroom (spacious and elegantly designed) and our very own private balcony!

What the most important thing is for us: this B&B is located next to the city centre of Cambridge so you don't need your car at all while you're staying here. The room we stayed in (The Gloucester) was quite spacious and had a large bathroom. The house is very quirky and has some lovely features. The breakfasts served were...

Thank you so much for your review. We are in the heart of Cambridge in a residential street which is normally very quiet. We do have rooms which do not front onto the street which can be requested. We do have parking at Duke House but spaces are limited and need to be asked for when booking your room.I agree...

I stayed in the top-floor Cambridge room -- a small suite, really -- during a recent business trip to Cambridge. I don't usually opt for a B&B, but Liz's lovely little oasis fit the bill completely. In summary: - The location is perfect. Duke House is perfectly situated within extremely easy (fewer than 5 minutes) walking distance of the city...

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.
