Our first trip to Durham and first time at the lovely Duke Inn. We were very pleased with our charming accommodations....good linens, clean bath, great shower. Only improvement they could offer would be better light in the bathroom! It was a very rainy two days... downpours, so we did not get to tour the beautiful grounds. We hope to come...

Besides being the #1 gorgeous property that it is, the employees match the beauty and hospitality this magical resorts exudes. Please acknowledge Karen (manager) for going above and beyond for welcoming us, and correcting an honest mistake with our reservation. She privately corrected our error without hesitation. Front desk team member, Mariana, kept us smiling and had a welcoming heart...

My daughter and I stayed overnight at this lovely hotel. Our room was quite comfortable. We had breakfast in the hotel. They offer a full buffet and the option of ordering off the menu. The property's grounds are beautiful.

We were just there for Duke Devil Days a few days ago. The staff was very friendly and the room was clean and comfy, but there were a couple of issues that you wouldn't expect at a modern, fine hotel. First of all, the gym was a big disappointment. I tried both the elliptical and the stationary bike. The touch...

We enjoyed our stay at the WaDuke Inn when we were in town for Blue Devil Days. It seems like the place to stay near campus (at least the West side). They have the new hotel across the street that looks nice too. We will be back many times in the future. It is so close to the campus. The...

This was our third stay at the Waduke for a Law School Reunion. It gets better every time. the welcome is gracious and warm, the servers in the Fairview and the Bull Durham know how to treat you, and do not know the word "no".

They have a special patients rate and the place is immaculate. You are right on campus and the hotel could not be fancier nor nicer. Wonderfully appointed rooms with all the amenities, a nice bar to watch a basket ball game and a lovely restaurant. If you are coming to the university for any other reason you could not stay...

We had a lovely stay here while visiting our daughter and son-in-law. The grounds are beautiful, our room, which was facing the entrance of the inn, was well decorated, comfortable, clean and perfect for our visit. We did have a slight issue with the air conditioner running all the time but turning it off worked just fine for our room...

The pros: beautiful location and setting, welcoming staff, great selection of teas The cons: when having High Tea, the tea should always be served before the food; the selection of sweets should have included more pastries; wait staff should circulate more with hot water for the teapots, as they do for the cold water.
