Jean Pierre is an excellent warm host, and he and Sarah have added some nice touches. Sentry Mead is spacious, and guests have the use of its public rooms and beautiful garden. Our room was clean and comfortable with great views, and the bed and bedding were of a high standard. The peace and quiet induced refreshing sleep. The bathroom... More

My husband and I booked a few nights at Sentry Mead to celebrate our first anniversary, and I'm so pleased we picked this guest house over the others we looked at. Sarah and Jean-Pierre were both so welcoming, and after sharing with them that we had booked the break to celebrate our anniversary we returned to the room to find... More

We stayed here for three nights and it is clear that a lot of love, care and investment has gone into this lovely hotel. Scummy breakfasts and free foxes glacier mints too. No problem with parking. Highly recommended

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

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...

Thank you very much for leaving a review for Sentry Mead. Just to let future guests know that we now have an area in the dining room where well-behaved dogs can be taken. Guests without dogs need not worry - it is separate from the buffet! We're very pleased you enjoyed your stay and would love to be able to... More

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
