Stayed here overnight on business, was met personally by the business owner who was charming, attentive and very helpful. Incredibly comfortable nights sleep. Breakfast was 10/10. It is situated in the centre of Shanklin with very easy access to all amenities.

We stayed at Bedford Lodge for 2 nights in early November. We were met with a friendly warm welcome from Karina on our arrival and made to feel completely at home. The breakfasts were superb with everything you could possibly want - and the cooked elements were served hot - not something one could say of every B and B...

A dog friendly lodge Bedford is an enchanting place. Tucked away in a wooded area with limited car parking. Pictures of the old Lodge dating back over 100 years show its history. There is plenty of common areas for you to relax and enjoy your fellow travelers. The bedroom a little tight especially with the old style furniture and our...

I cannot fault the Bedford Lodge in anyway. Everything was perfect. We were met by Karina as if we were long lost friends and that's the way it continued throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble. The Bedford Lodge is very well placed in Shanklin, it has its own car park, and buses, Restaurants, shops and the Chine are...

Great location, staff friendly and helpful, very nice and cosy rooms. The breakfasts are wonderful. Second time we have stayed here and we will be returning on a regular basis.
