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.

The breakfast room is lovely and relaxed with gorgeous views of the garden. I have stayed in 4 different rooms now. And they are all... More

We stayed at the Bedford Lodge for part of the Easter weekend and we had a fantastic short break. The rooms were warm (Easter in England weather) and very clean with all the facilities you need for a comfortable break. We were met and well briefed to the lodge and the local surrounding area including good restaurants. In the afternoons... More

An absolutely lovely place to stay. The room that greeted me was warm and cosy. A comfortable bed and all the mod cons. A wonderful view of the gardens from my room. The breakfast room was also welcoming and plenty to eat. A couple of minutes walk you are in the Main Street of Shanklin and the pubs and other... More

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.
