I checked in very late at night but Gilly had left a helpful welcome note for me. Room was clean, comfy and compact. I had to check out early, and she kindly left me some delicious croissants, fruit (sorry i didn't havd time to eat it!) and even some soya milk which I had requested.Thanks for having me!
You are very welcome Charly! Thanks for a nice review! Sorry we never met - maybe next time!Gilly

We decided to book the Lodge fairly last minuite. Not knowing what to expect we found that the whole place was very presented and quite homely, the room itself was brillaint and quite clean and modern. All the staff were friendly, talkative and helpful. Breakfast espeacially was brillaint. Would deffinitaly go back.

This hotel is in a great location, the room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable, and the hosts really helpful. I was unable to have the full breakfast as I was leaving very early in the morning but the hosts offered to leave out a continental breakfast for me to have or take with me - a really nice touch which added to the 'make yourself at home' warm welcome I received on arrival. Considering all this, the price of the room was really good value. I would definitely stay here again without hesitation.

Brilliant gem in the centre of Shanklin Old Village. Lovely establishment with immaculate rooms. Added bonus was the red squirrels enjoying their breakfast in the garden outside the main breakfast room. Would highly recommend and I wish I had found it sooner

We have stayed at the Bedford Lodge a few times now and every time has been exceptional!This year there were new owners - Gilly and Gary who were fantastic!Nothing was too much trouble.It was my partner - Steve's - 60th birthday whilst we were there and they decorated our breakfast table and Gilly even made him a chocolate (which was unbelievably tasty).We will be staying again next August Bank Holiday as we come down with a crowd of friends for the scooter rally.Would highly recommend!Thank you Gilly and Gary. xx
Thank you for a lovely review, Ros! I was good to meet you at last! It was great fun organising the Birthday celabration for Steve! looking forward to seeing you next year!Gilly x

The hotel is well situated in the old part of the town. It is very relaxing and the stay was most enjoyable. The stroll down to the beach is easy but the walk back takes a little effort. But I can handle it without any trouble.

The hosts Gilly and Gary have only been at the hotel for a couple of months and they are very welcoming and make you feel at home . It is a very relaxed. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is excellent with a good choice of hot and cold food. The hotel is situated in a lovely position by Shanklin chine and is close to local shops and restaurants. Gilly also arranged the ferry crossing for us too, which was a great help. Would highly recommend the Bedford Lodge. We wish them all the best in their new new venture.

We enjoyed staying here in the relaxed surroundings, and comfortable house. Very helpful owners, and generous breakfasts on offer. The sunny terrace is lovely for a tea/coffee. Handy location.

Had a lovely time but four things were a dissapointment St Catherines lighthouse was shut, The steam trains were not running, Crab pasties were not available on Tuesday and we didn't see a red squirrel SO we may be back. Always a silver lining!!
