Reviewed 8 September 2017

Staying at Duke House was perfect for Cambridge, Has parking too.
It is a lovely place in a quiet area, 5 Star is spot on. Paul was friendly & helpful , great breakfast, it has a nice lounge area too. Our room (The Wellington) with a large bathroom and comfy bed was just right. Good Pub at the other end of the road too !.
A real Gem. Duke House made our trip to Cambridge
We can definitely recommend for a break.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Wellington Room on the front and still lovely and quiet

Thank you so very much for your kind review. We are fortunate to be centrally located to the city, within a few minutes walk, with its vast variety of restaurants and still have the additional facility of a local pub, which also serves tasty homemade meals. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your break and hope that you will come and stay with us again at a future date.

Charming and interesting in a great location. We walked everywhere in Cambridge.

We stay two nights in the Gloucester. A large room that easily accommodated all of our stuff. Nice linens and bedding. Bathroom very large also.

Liz is a great hostess and offers many quality breakfast items.

Parking is tight for Americans not used to it. We came through unscathed!

Thank you for your review. We aim to source a variety of local produce for breakfast, so I am pleased that you enjoyed the choices on offer to our guests. Parking in Cambridge, as with many historic cities, is limited and although we have a small car park available at the rear of Duke House, (we ask that guests book car parking space at the time of booking) I agree the access does take some getting use to - glad that your driving skills excelled in this instance...

What a delightful boutique bed and breakfast! Liz (our energetic and creative hostess and owner of this fine establishment) greeted us at the door and helped us up to our room. We were in the Wellington, twin beds for my adult daughter and I on on mom/daughter trip to England. The building was owned by the current Duke of Gloucester when HE went to Cambridge in the 70's, hence the name. Cleverly decorated, with abundantly comfortable bedrooms, lovely bathrooms and a spectacular sitting room downstairs. Located literally minutes away from the University, the HopOnHopOf bus, and the long distance buses that we later took to Oxford. The breakfasts were ENORMOUS with very flavorful eggs, grilled mushrooms and grilled tomatoes, lots of choices of cereals to go with the delicious 9that means not too sweet) yogurt. Paul, her able assistant, even fixed us up with a nice cuppa before we left after our last morning journey into town for one more bit of shopping. What a great palce...I will certainly be back here some time.

Room Tip: Narrow but easy stairs for upper floors, if you have mobility problems

My wife and I spent two nights at the Duke House and enjoyed it immensely. Very pleasant room, wonderful breakfast and accommodating owner/staff. Easy walk to everything in downtown Cambridge. Nice pub just down the street for a quick dinner. Bus for train station nearby or take a short 6 - 8 pound cab ride to train station.
