This was our fourth visit to the Isle of Wight but the first time we had stayed on this side of the island. Sentry Mead exceeded all of our expectations. A beautiful guest house, very friendly owners who Offered the personal touch. Sarah's meal were exceptionally good. The rooms were extremely clean and the staff were welcoming and attentive and...

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

Having just returned from a 10 night stay in this lovely guest house, it's easy to see why it's rated as No.1 in Totland. Friendly owners and staff, good food, comfy rooms and excellent value. And Very Dog Friendly! What's not to like. Once you put down a large dog bed and rug, most rooms start to feel cramped, so... More

We went for this accommodation as it was dog friendly but it was a lovely place even without this. Set in the quiet Totland Bay with plenty of walks and pubs on the doorstep and clean, friendly accommodation to return to. Lovely breakfast, spacious clean rooms and welcoming staff.

This July we spent a most relaxing 9 nights at the Sentry Mead. A really comfortable, clean and friendly guest house. The owners and staff went out of their way to help us and make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Ideally situated to explore the Island by car, foot or bus. As keen walkers we started by walking the... More

We had the pleasure of spending two nights at Sentry Mead with our miniature schnauzer Poppy. Sarah and Jean-Pierre were very friendly and gave us and Poppy a warm welcome. A beautiful and peaceful location, lovely walks nearby and wonderful sea views from from our bedroom windows. We stayed in the Totland room and found it spotless with a very... More

We have just returned from a four night break at the Sentry Mead Hotel and what a fabulous experience it was. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome, as were our two lurchers Bonnie and Yogi. The owners Sarah and Jean-Pierre were so friendly and made our stay so pleasurable - nothing was too much... More
