Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely room with everything supplied. Gorgeous breakfast with a good choice of options - especially enjoyed the yoghurt and granola crunch! Super helpful service through our two night stay. Thanks Tina for being so friendly and accommodating our later than expected arrival.

Such exquisite attention to detail. We were delighted with our beautiful, bright and airy room. The whole place was clean and well maintained. Dietary requirements catered for. Such a fantastic location for town, yet feels like a sanctuary to come back to. Already booked to come back soon!

Stayed at Duke House for 2 nights at the end of November. The central location is perfect and we had no need to use the car while we were there. Liz greeted us and showed us to our rooms which were spacious and well presented. The guest house has a lovely atmosphere and we would definitely stay again. Thank you Liz.

My husband and I had a delightful stay at Duke House. It was the best B&B we have ever stayed in, the bedroom and bathroom were beautiful and the breakfast was superb. Liz was an excellent host and made us feel very welcome and looked after.

This is an incredible B&B within walking distance to everything you might want to see or do in Cambridge. The rooms are beautifully appointed with lovely linens and extremely comfortable beds. The breakfast options were varied and delicious. I would highly recommend a stay!

Great central position (with parking). Very comfortable beds. Good communal sitting room. Liz was very welcoming and helpful. However, the York room must be one of the smallest we've ever stayed in, and this a luxury B&B. It did have a very spacious en suite bath/shower room but that didn't make it any easier squeezing along either side of the bed. Price per square foot must be astronomical! One other gripe... Liz served us a very welcome tea when we arrived but, oh dear, it was accompanied by a pair of cheap plastic-packed biscuits. We've stayed in so many "lesser" B&Bs over the years where we've been offered proper cake or at least classy biscuits!

An absolutely delightful B&B. Tina is a wonderful and friendly host and is quite attentive. The room was perfectly accommodated, clean and pleasant to the eye. Breakfast was made to order and delivered with a smile. Five of five stars.

We stayed here for 2 nights break it is in a quiet street with a lovely pub at the other end.. We were met by Tina who was lovely after a short chat we were escorted to our room on the top floor (although we were OK do not book this room if you can’t manage stairs) the room was beautiful and spotless with all the amenities you would need and a large shower.. the bed was a bit to hard for us but that’s just choice We had free parking although this was very tight and took some maneuvering..but a great bonus in Cambridge.. and it took 5 minutes across a lovely park to get to the centre of Cambridge very convenient.. Breakfast was lovely And Tina was a font of information about things to do and see
