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

Really lovely accomodation. In fact the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in and the decoration and furniture is lovely. Very shabby chic!! The staff are really friendly and you're made to feel very much at home. The breakfasts are delicious and there are many choices such as omelettes or smoked salmon. The Bedford Lodge would always be my first... More

It's a rare thing to disgaree with so many other TripAdvisor contributors but our experience of the Bedford Lodge was a distinctly average one. OK, the place is well situated in Old Shanklin, we had a nice room and a pleasure to see red squirrels and jays in the garden while having a pretty mediocre breakfast. As for the welcoming... More

I was booked here for one night on a trip for work. What a treat! A stylish and well-run B&B tucked away in Shanklin Old Village. The staff have been so friendly and helpful, and it's all done with that personal touch to it. The whole experience made me feel so welcome, and I would love to come back.
