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

We very much enjoyed a two night stay in this B&B. Our hostess was most welcoming and it was lovely to be welcomed with a home made sponge cake. We were treated to a view of the red squirrels at breakfast which was a delight as were the breakfasts themselves. We had room 11 which contained a four poster bed... More

Welcomed in with a lovely not with all we needed to know. Bowled over from our first foot in the door. Gorgeous homely feel with cake on the side for guests and beautiful lounge in which to watch the little red squirrels! We were given a choice of two bedrooms and room seven was just gorgeous. Comfortable bed and white... More

Bedford lodge is beautiful and pristine and the perfect place to stay if you want a relaxing break from the city. I stayed for 2 nights in a single room, overlooking the garden. The location is really easy to get to via public transport and within a few minutes walk of the beach and local shops and restaurants. Kareena is... More
