A boutique B&B in a charming neighbourhood of old terraced houses.
1 Victoria Street Cambridge CB1 1JP 01223 314 773
We sayEx-home of HRH Prince Richard the Duke of Gloucester, his name now adorns the door to one of four en-suite guest rooms, each named after a different Duke. The grandeur of the room names are thoroughly in keeping with the Britishness of this establishment, something only exentuated by its prime position in the heart of Cambridge. A boutique B&B, the stylish 1840s townhouse, just north of Parkers Piece, has a refined, classic feel tastefully redecorated with careful attention to detail. As you sit in the downstairs lounge and flick through the stack of interior design magazines, the feeling that Duke House has slipped off the page and into reality is all too natural. The four double rooms, each unique, have flat-screen satellite TVs, free Wi Fi, iPod docking station and a desk, while features like the original Victorian fireplace (in The Gloucester), a private wooden balcony (in The Cambridge) and a walk in wardrobe (in the Wellington) provide a luxury finish to your already comfortable abode. From the doorstep guests stride into an old terraced neighbourhood, popular with professors and university students, shrinking the small city of Cambridge further by boasting the most central location possible. All the attractions on your hit list will be a few hundred meters from the door, while excellent pubs and restaurants dot the surrounding streets. Food is as tasty and elegant as you expect when you wander into a delicate breakfast room, overlooking a tiny private courtyard and complete with a glowing fire during the winter months.
