Guest rooms at this beautifully converted town house (home of the Duke of Glouchester when he was a student) look like they've been copied from the pages of a lifestyle magazine. Swathes of white and ivory are offset by subtle blues or floral accents, enveloping 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.
