My husband and I decided to have a couple of days away to celebrate his birthday recently and decided on the Isle of Wight as neither of us had been there before. We spent quite a long time researching hotels on the island as we wanted to take our dog with us. We'd never stayed in a dog friendly hotel... More

I have just returned from staying at Sentry Mead, and apart from my stay being extremely comfortable, with delicious breakfasts to every other need anticipated, I was generously rescued by the owner, when unable to open the bonnet of the car to top up my windscreen wash. Not only did he help, but also probably set me up for the... More

What a lovely place to stay! Our room was spotless. Nice touches like excellent lighting in the room, or more subdued from side lights - your choice. Two comfy chairs for us to sit in rather than lounge on the bed, and little touches like a make up mirror. If you want it, these lovely hosts will do their utmost... More

We stayed at Sentry Mead for 6 nights and can not fault it 10 out of 10 in every aspect. We stayed in the Osborne Room with our two yorkies .We couldn't have chosen a better place! The room was immaculate and tastefully decorated. Sarah & Jean Pierre are two of the most friendliest host you could wish to meet,... More

Excellent welcome on our arrival, followed by a letter of personal greeting in the bedroom. Throughout our stay of 2 weeks the owners and staff were most helpful and attentive. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. We hope to return again next year.l

My partner and I decided to get away for the weekend to celebrate his birthday, but wanted to keep costs down by staying on the Isle of Wight where we live! We live in Cowes so going "over to" Totland felt like we were getting away from our work. I was aware that it is a dog friendly establishment but... More

We stayed here for one night whilst cycling around the island. Owner was very helpful with storing our bikes. Breakfast was lovely. Staff helpful and attentive. Good information available for eating and places of interest. Room clean. The afternoon tea taken in the grounds of the hotel was very enjoyable.

We stayed here over the bank holiday and thought it was fine. It has a very traditional feel, is welcoming and very dog friendly. The breakfasts were good - a selection of cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurt and unlimited tea and coffee. There is also a hot breakfast menu including a veggie cooked breakfast, plus all the usual favourites, smoked salmon,... More

Maybe we have high expectations but for what we were charged we felt short changed... A warm welcome, to be expected, then taken right to the top of the very tall building. This wasn't a problem as we are fit and had very little luggage! But if I had been as old as some of the clientele I think I... More

I’m slightly amused by this review (apart from the two star bit, which I feel is a little low in comparison to the comments!), as it shows just how subjective review sites can be and how a person’s perspective can play a large part. Clearly if a guest is as unhappy as this review would suggest, we did not do... More
