Duke House

1 Victoria St., Cambridge, CB1 1JP, England

This beautifully converted town house (home of the duke of Gloucester when he was a student) is forever cropping up in British newspaper articles about the best B&Bs in the country. The guestrooms certainly look like they've been copied from the pages of a lifestyle magazine—swathes of white and ivory, offset by subtle blues or floral accents, envelop the large and comfortable beds like a swanky cocoon. Flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and free Wi-Fi connections are thoughtful extras, and impeccably chosen local art hangs on the walls in the public areas. The house is a 10-minute walk from King's College.
