Booked online in July for a stay in October. This was for an important birthday party for a friend. I thought I would check the booking before the event as had seen another reviewer comment about making a booking but no reservation when they arrived (twice). Simple fact is the same happened to us. Although they still had a room... More

My worst night in a UK hotel and possibly the worst ever bar one night in Rumania just after the revolution. They did not warn us that a wedding party had booked in. Returning that evening to run the gauntlet of smoking, drunken and obstructive guests at the door, it got worse from then on. Pounding music until the early... More

Stayed here for our wedding anniversary and weren't disappointed. Hotel is in a good location in the heart of Dunstable and only a few minutes from 'The Downs'. Check-in was quick and the reception staff welcoming and friendly. Room was really nice, although a little warm with no aircon. My only gripe would be that our double was a twin... More

We recently had another most comfortable stay at The Old Palace Lodge. Congratulations to management for improving the free wifi - it is excellent. Would you now please consider room safes - even if only in the more expensive rooms? As overseas visitors, we had to lug our valuables around with us sightseeing, when a room safe would have solved... More

Enjoyed a great wedding here, as a guest ,decent food and attentive staff. ( though no real ales in the bar ) Good breakfast next morning,too. Room decor was fine though don't think the bathroom floor had been washed,shame. Be careful if disabled or visually impaired; quite darkly lit in places and some ill defined stair edges.

Stayed here 2 nights to use as a base for visiting central London. Right in the heart of Dunstable so easy striking distance of the M1. Pleasant surroundings, friendly and helpful staff, good food and well kept rooms. Would definitely recommend and we would stay here again.

We occasionally stay in the Dunstable area for family events. On this occasion - a Sunday night - The Old Palace Lodge was offering an executive double room for £55, which was very good value. The room and bathroom were a reasonable size, and quite comfortable. There is no air conditioning and it was a very hot day/night so we... More
