We have just returned from five days in this superb hotel with our two dogs Thai and Honey. A real home from home. Best value for money ever. Our hosts - Jean-Pierre and Sarah - not forgetting Bridget were so concerned to make our stay a happy one and they certainly succeeded. Breakfast was great with a wide variety of... More

Just come back after staying here again, have lost count of the number of times we've stayed. Sarah, Jean-Pierre and not forgeting Brigette all do so much to make your stay just lovely. The rooms are lovely, and the food you cannot fault. We are going back again in Sept. Think they are worth 10 stars not 5! Barbara and... More

We had a lovely stay - Sarah & Jean-Pierre and all the staff were incredibly accommodating and offered nice personal touches such as remembering our baby's and dog's name. The cleanliness of the hotel was superb - couldn't fault anything. Fantastically dog friendly too. Breakfast was very nice and it is in a good location for travel to beaches, bays,... More

Although we only stayed one night it was clear why this establishment has had such good reviews. We had originally booked to stay at the end of April but had to cancel at only 24 hours notice as our dog died. Sarah was not only kind enough not to charge us for this but also said we could transfer our... More

We noted the excellent reviews for Sentry Mead and were not disappointed with our experience, it is a lovely hotel in a quiet setting close to the beachfront of Totland and away from the hustle and bustle. Our room had the benefit of a sea view across the manicured gardens of the hotel. Sarah and her team run the hotel... More

Sentry Mead is a 'cut above' in every sense, well deserving of it's five star status. Sara is charming and her staff are equally as attentive and courteous. Sara works mainly 'front of house' with husband Jean-Pierre beavering in the background, including cooking the breakfast, which is well presented and freshly cooked to your liking. The rooms are immaculately clean,... More

We return annually to this Hotel due to its location and excellent hospitality. Jean-Pierre and Sarah continue to improve already fine facilities. Special requests hassle free and delivered on arrival. Breakfast menu excellent choice and continues to be of a very high standard. Once again well done see you on next visit!!

This is more than a b&b. from the minute you walk through the doors you feel very valued. The service is exemplary as is the cleanliness and food. 2nd visit for us, we will definitely be back. Well done Sarah, Jean Pierre and Bridget.
