Myself and my fiance stayed at Bedford Lodge for 3 nights during the month of August. Booking was booked direct and very easily through the very helpful owner Karena, who even booked us cut price ferry tickets with Wightlink. On Arrival at the Lodge there was nobody available to greet us as it was after 9pm. However, Bedford lodge has... More

Our first time on the IOW..... Bedford Lodge picks you up and gives you a big hug. It's warm and welcoming as are Karena and her staff. From the cozy, but comfy bedroom (4) to the delicious breakfast, we would recommend this place every time. You will leave with a smile on your face. Excellent.

We had a lovely stay at Bedford lodge, made all the more enjoyable by the warm welcome we received from Karen. Bedford lodge was a great place to stay for our weekend. Close to the shops and beach with lots of choice on where to eat. Our room was very cosy and well furnished including all the little extras. The... More

What can I say that hasn't been said by previous guests at this premier establishment? Our room was lovely with French windows leading to a patio with table and chairs, the bed was huge and comfortable, the en-suite was spacious and there was always plenty of hot water, the Wi-Fi was good enough to enable me to stream some of...

It is the first time been to the Isle of Wight. Stayed at Bedford Lodge in Shankin for a week. Perfect location in the old part of the village. We stayed in room 14 which is on the ground floor and has its own patio area. The room was very clean and comfortable but there are larger rooms which are... More

In a great location just a few minutes walk from the sea and right next to the Chine, Bedford Lodge is the perfect place to stay. A beautiful, well kept building in pretty surroundings, the staff are welcoming, the food is great and the rooms are clean. There is nothing I can find fault with as Bedford Lodge is wonderful...

I'm glad I didn't let negative feedback prevent me from booking a small break at this wonderful B&B. Karena was the perfect host, greeting me by name every day when we met, usually at breakfast. Which was superb, by the way. Far too much bacon (but I ate it all anyway!). The few niggles I had were minor. On the... More

Booked a four night visit to the Isle of Wight with a friend and we were so pleased that we had chosen Bedford Lodge for our stay. It was perfectly situated tucked away in a delightful garden in the middle of Shanklin old village and next to the Chine. We could come and go as we pleased and there was... More

I've being going to the Bedford Lodge for the last 3 years now. It's a lovely guest house hidden by trees next to the Chine in Shanklin Old Village and has a very relaxed ambience with friendly owners and helpful staff. It is also surrounded in part by a pretty garden that attracts a number of wild birds and red... More

From the moment you are welcomed to your clean quiet and specious room by your charming hostess you know you have hit the jackpot with this fantastic B&B. The bed was comfortable and large which led to the best nights sleep we have had for over a year (I am not over selling this!) Breakfast was a well cooked full... More
