An old hotel off city center.
Well kept, clean, fine rooms, good service.
Wifi was stable and free of charge.
Great location !close to the city center by still quiet and relaxed..
A walking distance from Aberdeen Bazar.
Breakfast was good !
We enjoyed our stay.
Make my Trip book us this Hotel as part of their premium Group Travel, Overall I was very much disappointed. Following is what I feel
Good: The Hotel location is good and the reception area was nice. Looks like an Old property. The Pool area was good and well maintained.
Bad: many things went wrong for us
1. Room - Spacious but infested with ants. Hot water was an issue. We went out in the day and told the receptionist about the issue. Unfortunately when we were back in the evening none of the issues were addressed. We had tell each and everything again to the new person on duty.
2. Room facilities - Average. Certainly does not deserve the premium tag.
3 Overall as well the property needs maintenance, lift is pretty old one, better take the stairs.
Buffet Breakfast - Average
Wifi - As most of other hotels works in only the reception area.
Overall, I would not recommend this hotel to my friends. Unless they improve the room conditions.
It was such an amazing experience staying at the best resort. Lovely location, beautiful infrastructure and commendable service and the staff is super friendly and kind. Rooms are exceptionally well decorated and comfortable.
We stayed in Hotel Sentinel for 4 nights Jan 7-9,13. Our original reservation was for Jan 10-13 since we planned to take the ferry to one of the islands as soon as we landed. However, when we landed, all the ferries were stopped due to cyclonic weather. We went to Hotel Sentinel as asked if we could prepone our stay due to the ferry problem. They had rooms available, so they accommodated us. We had originally booked the deluxe room and they only had premium rooms available, so we paid the surcharge and checked in. For Jan 13, we stayed in the deluxe room. Here is a review of both rooms:
Deluxe Room: The room was clean and the linens were clean. The bed was comfortable. Unlike some of the reviews, we did not see any insects in the room. The hot water in the geyser was fine. The Toilet paper holder was in such a place that the water splashing from the sink was likely to make the toilet paper wet, so make sure you store the toilet paper in a dry place if it is located in the same way in your room. The sink in the bathroom was one of those stylish off-beat sinks that is very shallow, so it was a bit inconvenient to use.
Premium Room: Slightly larger than the deluxe room. The fittings in the bathroom were also better. Note one bizarre style element: there is a big glass window between the bathroom and the sleeping area. There is a darkish curtain provided but be warned that it does not offer complete privacy. Also our room had a smell of some kind of insecticide.
In both rooms, Dental kits, shaving kit, a comb, shampoo and soaps are provided.
Wifi: Only works in the lounge area and is REALLY SLOW. Forget any type of internet activity while on the island and also at this hotel.
Staff: very friendly and accommodating. We were checking out to catch the early ferry and they kindly provided a packed breakfast (one cucumber sandwich, some chips and a drink).
Restaurant: Breakfast buffet had aloo paratha, yogurt, idli, poha, vada, chutney, sambar, eggs (omelette made to order), a fruit drink, coffee. For lunch and dinner, we ate at the Zales restaurant (we are Veg.). A lot of the items on the menu are not available since the island is dependent on supplies that arrive from the mainland. However, the food that we did order was quite good and filling.
Pool: we did not use it since the water looked a bit murky. However, we saw that they do clean it painstakingly every day with a big filtering net to take out all the leaves that fall from the trees.
Location: Close to the center of town. Easy to get to the hotel using an auto.
Overall, we would stay here again.
We stayed at the hotel last week. Everything from entering the hotel until leaving was great. Food was delicious and the staff was very kind & helpful.
The room was very nicely sized and had all the required amenities for a comfortable stay.
Pool is well maintained and has a pool bar on the side.
Excellent stay - highly recommended.
Thank you so much for making our vacation memorable.
