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

Judging by the pictures it looks boutique-y and charming. Trust me, it is not. We booked here as a friends wedding nearby. We are well travelled and stay in hotels a lot so we often book into hotels that offer a bit of old world charm, rustic beams and well maintained location. We didn't find this. The room was 'fine',... More

The standard of rooms are good at this hotel and very light and airy. The food in the restaurant was good but the ambience was spoilt by the dining room being so dark. My colleague read the dinner menu using the candle provided on these table! Tables and chairs for sitting outside are literally adjacent to the roadway in to... More

such great character. i had a spacious room and only stayed for a night for a special occasion. breakfast was a let down a little. but otherwise good experience. some of the rooms were dark and a little dingy. but i think this is due to the age.

A nice hotel which surprises you in terms of location as it just sort of 'appears' on the main road. It is opposite a beautiful old priory and although on the main road, was not noisy at all. It has free parking and free wifi also. We stayed overnight after visiting Bletchley Park (well worth it btw), and would recommend... More
