My family and I decided to stay a night at The White House for my graduation at the cathedral this year after I had seen amazing reviews and after it had been recommended by lots of people. The hotel exceeded all expectations and in every way, such a stylish and contemporary but cosy and welcoming atmosphere and decoration. Adrian was... More

beautifully appointed, immaculately clean, friendly hosts all contributed to a lovely stay at The White House. Good location - 8 mins from the railway station, two minutes from the centre of Canterbury and surrounded by good eating places. Very helpful and warm hosts who clearly want their clients to have a good stay with them. Would definitely recommend and return... More

Located in the middle of town, yet very quiet. The rooms are very comfortable, clean, beautifully decorated and lacked nothing. The owner is very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable - a B&B just as it should be! We had a perfect few days staying here for a little city break.

Owner very helpful and knowledgeable. Highly recommended by us. We also acknowledge that there were a number of single ladies staying at the Hotel. They must of felt very safe and... More

I had the same experience as another recent writer. Cute, quirky B&B, with pleasant room, nice amenities, nice bathroom. Great location just off the main pedestrian thoroughfare. And price was great, given the location. That said, Adrian gave us a similar greeting - we had emailed weeks ahead to ask whether we could drop our bags off until our room... More

I rarely write reviews but felt compelled to on this occasion. First the positives - great location, lovely comfortable room. However the greeting we received from the owner was 'strange'. We were met on the doorstep with a confused and abrupt response from the owner when we said we had a room booked. He was then rather abrupt when we... More

I booked The White House for a weekend away for my fiancés birthday on August bank holiday weekend. I can honestly say that I was blown away by the level of service and attention to detail we had during our stay. The day before our stay I had a phone call from Adrian to confirm our booking. He kindly said... More

We found our visit here to be just right. The location is part of what is great. While it is just around the corner from the busy High Street, the White House is on a fairly quiet street and feels a bit removed from the business of town. My elderly mother was able to easily walk to the theater, the... More

The white house has comfortable beds, cosy rooms and breakfast room, and outstanding customer service. I travel to Canterbury once or twice a year on business, and I never even think of booking anywhere else (unless the White House is full). The location is great for walking from rail station, and wandering around the town. Delicious breakfast served with a... More
