We booked for one night as we were visiting friends in Dunstable. There is a lovely historic ambience to this hotel, with the wooden arched entrance and a warm reception area. The large sized double room was really lovely, contemporary but with plush deep red accents, so very welcoming. A good size bed together with a table and chairs also.... More

We were married across the road and had our reception at the Old Palace Lodge. I stayed in the bridal suite all weekend. What an amazing cozy venue, especially for a winter wedding. The place is warm and inviting, has a very old feel and is steeped in history. The food was amazing. The staff are professional and very attentive.... More

I have not stayed here for many years but this was disappointing. Friendly check in as always. Room was very small, the shower just leaked no flow. My main concern is staff cover at night. We got back and the bar and reception were deserted so anyone can come and go. We eventually got a member of staff to serve... More

After having Christmas Dinner at home for many years we thought we'd try one away from home. My wife and I have dined at the hotel before and enjoyed the atmosphere, cosiness and the great food on offer. On this occasion our son and mother in law dined with us and once again we were not disappointed. The table layout... More

Wonderful party with excellent food and plenty of staff to ensure we were served quickly at the bar. The bedroom was stunning and full of antiques. The breakfast was really good too. The doors creaked a little but that just added to the charachter

I hadn't been to the OPL for 25 years, it always had a good reputation but for some reason we hadn't been back, so when deciding on a venue for a family Sunday lunch gathering we decided to give it a wirle.

Had a nice birthday lunch for my mothers 82nd birthday. Food was tasty, service good but since we were the only people there it was lacking in atmosphere. The piped music was not helping and the dining room was cold. Staff very friendly and helpful particularly to my mother who needed a ramp fixing on the stairs. Thanks guys
