“cosy, warm welcome, relaxing atmosphere”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Stayed overnight. Warm welcome, very comfortable, well appointed room and bathroom, representing much better value than large hotel alternatives. Great bed, excellent breakfast- guess that's what very good b&bs like this do.
Highly recommended.

This is a very nice B&B. We stayed here for my 40th in 2013 and enjoyed the lovely room and the hearty breakfast they serve. I would definitely stay again and recommend to others. The only thing that stops it getting the full 5 stars is I found the mattress a little hard so didn't sleep as well as I could have. This is very subjective, as my partner slept like a baby whilst there.

Thank you for your review and we were pleased to learn that you would like to make a return visit. We appreciate your comment regarding our mattresses - feedback from guests has shown that a medium to firm mattress is preferred however, in order to aim to accommodate all preferences, all our beds do have padded mattress 'toppers' and we would be happy to supply a second topper for your next visit.

This is an exceptional bed and breakfast in a great position in central Cambridge. A much nicer place to stay than many of the very ordinary and overpriced hotels nearby. The room was lovely, breakfast was fantastic, and there are some parking spaces too. Thank you!

Loved Duke House for a birthday treat, recommended by Midsummer House in Cambridge. Liz was fab, delicious breakfast (ginger compote to die for), room was was super comfortable, city centre location and even free parking. Loved all the little Easter details, and particularly the window boxes. Thank you, we will be back. Highly recommend. Cambridge needs places like these.

Thank you for your review. So pleased that not only did you enjoy your stay with us but also your time at Midsummer House. We are very lucky to have such a highly regarded restaurant so close by - a short walk across Midsummer Common ...and maybe a taxi back!

Just returned from a 4 day stay in Cambridge at Duke House. This is a fabulous B&B. Liz and Paul (the manager) made us feel really welcome and could not do enough to make our stay very special. The house is absolutely gorgeous, the rooms are beautiful and spotlessly clean and the location is very central. If you are thinking of visiting Cambridge I cannot recommend staying at Duke House enough - we will definately be back!
