What our customers say

The Team at the Duke were exceptional in all details leading up to and on our wedding day. The hotel itself has loads of character and charm and the only thing we would have done different is stayed longer! All of our wedding guests said the food and service was excellent and it really was. This is a wedding venue that you can count on to be special. Erica & Ed Delamare
