We chose Sentry Mead for a two-night break on the island based upon the consistently good reviews at Tripadvisor and were absolutely delighted. It may be described as a bed and breakfast but the service is better than any hotel, from our initial booking right through to our departure nothing was too much trouble, we were so well looked after...

This easy to find off the beaten track gem is just delightful. Plenty of parking overlooking a large well kept garden, a great place to sit and unwind with the rolling sea in your ear. The welcome from the owners was exactly that. The whole reception process was warm, genuine and personable. The room was fabulous, homely and cosy yet... More

Hosts were great, very welcoming, nothing was to much trouble and they gave good advice on where to eat. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed heavenly. Breakfast was top quality, unrushed with lots of choice.The location was very peacfull and the view from our room was pleasant. The lounge area were very comfortable with complimentary tea and coffee... More

We booked here for one night when visiting family nearby and needed a place which was dog friendly. This absolutely lived up to the promise with water bowls and wipe-down towels by the front door, blankets and bowls in the room, dogs allowed nearly everywhere (including leaving them unattended in the room), a very handy park/walkway over the road for...

This is a long overdue review we visited in July. We chose sentry mead because it looked nice, was in a good location for the sight seeing we had planned also because of the offer to pay towards the ferry if staying over a certain number of nights. Our room was beautiful, on the smaller side, but big enough for... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lovely room with great views towards Milford. A good choice of cooked food for breakfast. I had the eggs benedict for a change. My wife said that the bed was the most comfortable she had ever slept in.

My partner and i decided to have a night away as it was his birthday. We couldn't have chosen better. We were made to feel very welcome,the owners are lovely people,the room was luxurious and spotlessly clean. The views were beautiful and spoilt only by the persistent rain! The cooked breakfast was lovely.

We had a most pleasant stay in this hotel. The room with its sea view was delightful, the bed very comfortable and the cooked breakfast was brilliant! The owners and staff were all very friendly and it was excellent value for money.

We have just stayed at the Sentry Mead in Totland on the Isle of Wight for a few days break. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the whole experience at all.
