We stayed here for an overnight, having travelled to Shanklin to see a show at the Theatre. As we arrived by public transport, we initially missed the entrance which comes directly from the public car park. Not a problem though as Karena directed us on the phone. When we arrived, Karena was again very helpful in settling us in and... More

I have been to the island for many years, as have family there, and never seen Bedford Lodge, and more is the pity. We arrived late, well about 7:00pm, but as it is winter it seemed later, I was in a dark mood but as soon as we went into the Bedford Lodge my mood lifted, the place is very... More

We have to agree 100% with all the positive reviews. Bedford Lodge was everything we wanted from a B&B- welcoming, spotlessly clean, comfortable bed and excellent breakfast. We were very grateful for the kind offer to upgrade us to room 7 and enjoyed the extra space and views. Our stay on the IOW was primarily for walking and we recommend... More

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.

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...

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
