A message to all our wonderful guests
Firstly, we would like to thank you for booking to stay at Duke House. Many of you return again and again and become more than guests, you become part of our Duke House community and it feels more like welcoming friends.
COVID-19 has meant that many of those of you who were due to stay with us in the next few months have been in contact to cancel or postpone your bookings. We are working hard to deal with these requests, as quickly as possible. This is a challenging process but we know that it is essential to reduce the spread of the virus and keep you and your families healthy.
We have done the same for our small team here at Duke House. We have therefore temporarily closed until 31 May 2020 in order to keep everyone safe. We will, of course, update you as soon as we have any better news. In the meantime, we wish you good health and hope to see you again soon.
With our warmest wishes
Liz, Tina, Carmen and Georgie

MUM’S GONE TO… Travel tales of an empty nester
Recently we had a review published on a travel website, below is an excerpt.
Duke House is an exquisite little B&B, just the sort of place the city has been crying out for. It’s located in a terrace in Victoria Street, in the heart of the city centre, just behind my alma mater. With five luxury bedrooms and one self-catering apartment, it’s a tiny oasis in the bustling city. You wouldn’t think you were only a short walk from the bus station or the Grand Arcade shopping centre.
It has a fascinating history. Built in 1860, it was used both privately and commercially during Victorian times. For much of the 20th century it was a decorating and plumbing business. It took a right royal turn in 1967 when HRH Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester, bought the property. As a student of architecture at Magdalene College at the time, he saw the house as his project, making many alterations which gave the property its character today. In the lobby of the hotel there are photos from a more recent visit from the Duke in 2012 when he came to see how the current owners, Liz and Rob Cameron, had changed his former home into luxury B&B accommodation. He stayed, quite fortuitously, in the guest room named The Duke.
