Wonderful hotel, the owner Karena and her staff were all lovely and the atmosphere so very relaxing. Gorgeous room with a view over the garden, right in the center of the village. Good breakfast served in a beautiful room also with views across the garden. We are certain we will stay again.

I stayed here last night, I have to say that I wasnt convinced at first because I was expecting more of a hotel than a B&B but that was my fault due to lack of research. What a pleasant surprise the Lady owner was so lovely and welcoming, there was no restictions like other B&Bs, my room was beautiful with... More

Discreetly shrouded in greenery, but bang in the centre of un-trippy Old Shanklin, Bedford Lodge offers a haven of classy tranquility; for couples young and old, and for families with well-behaved youngsters, too! Breakfasts are a special feature, and are SENSATIONAL!!! Our accommodation (4 nights) was in the four-poster room (so top room price); not particularly commodious, but very comfortable... More

When we arrived we were greeted by Sylvia who offered us homemade cake and a choice of tea/coffee, She then explained the door entry code and times for breakfast. The room was lovely and clean, good quality bedlinen and towels, and delicious freshly cooked breakfast.

This is a lovely "Home from home" B&B. The location is great, in the Old Village of Shanklin. Karena and her staff were very welcoming and informative. There is a very small secluded car park, which you access from the road behind the B&B. We found the road and the entrance difficult to find. The entrance would benefit from a... More

On arrival we were told to help our selves to cake and refreshments which were very welcome and delicious! Pleasant, clean and comfy room... More

Once again I was not disappointed with this upmarket B&B which is handily placed for the centre of Shanklin, and it`s many eating establishments as only breakfast is on offer here. The Landlady was very helpful with her recommendations for an evening meal, which I took at the Chine Inn on cliff overlooking the beach and very nice it was... More

Very comfortable and good looking b&b, and located in the heart of Shanklin. It can be tricky to find the first time but this adds to the feeling of finding a hidden gem. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms and showers very comfy and to a high standard. The breakfast is also very good and all that... More

Bedford Lodge bills itself as a traditional B&B - but it does its thing with airy modern prettiness, great attention to detail, consideration for the local environment and economy and the best of guest-house service. My single room had a double bed and a cleverly designed-in shower room and I felt every bit as welcome as couples and groups staying... More
