The Dukes B&B has been sold and closed. The Duke was on the market for a long time, it has been sold and it is closed. I do not know if the new owners will open it up again. there is some work going on.

This is probably the most charming hosted B&B we have stayed at. History seeps from every painstakingly cleaned brick. The 'laid back' ambiance, warm fireplace and plenty of reading material enhance the visit, as does Graeme's knowledge of the local area which he is more than willing to share. We were greeted each morning by Graeme with a hearty "Good... More

Despite the cold, wintry weather we were lovely and cosy. Our hosts - Graeme and June were wonderful hosts. From welcoming us and settling us in to preparing a magnificent breakfast that we ate from thoughtfully chosen pottery pieces - including some made by June. The breakfast room & sitting area have a lovely ambience surrounded by the garden. It... More

Whether it was booking a restaurant for us or cooking breakfast, our host Graeme was as good as everyone has already said. The bedrooms are comfortable and cosy on a cold night. There are personal touches in the decor and the shared spaces are pleasant as well. Highly recommended.

Our host, Graeme wasn't going to be around at our arrival, but he kindly left the keys with a local restaurant (where we were spending our evening). Later that evening, Graeme met us and we spent the latter end of... More

We had four nights at Dukes. Graeme was a great host, his breakfasts are amazing. Loved the character of the place. Clunes is an unusual place, pretty quite during the week. A lot more happening on the weekends.

My daughter and I stayed for one night at The Dukes in late June. It's an old pub with a colourful history, to which has been added a very nicely designed modern back section of lounge and dining room looking onto a garden. We had a great time socialising with the other guests in the cozy lounge, then dancing in... More
