I asked for an early check in of 1pm as I was flying in from the States which was granted without a problem, however the M25 got the better of me and I didn't arrive until three. I called from the car park nearby to ask final directions and then walked to the front door. Adrian met me with a... More

Possibly one of the nicest places I have stayed. For its location, amenities and comfort definitely value for money. Adrian was very friendly giving me a courtesy call a few days before. The room (en suite single) was stylish and lovely with a nice view of Westgate. The breakfast was brilliant (and definitely cured the hangover) and in such a... More

The White House is a superbly located facility that is a short walk from the cathedral, shopping, restaurants and pubs, and the Canterbury West rail station. Host Adrian is genuinely welcoming and incredibly helpful with local advice and recommendations. Our room was spacious, quiet and stylish, with a great bathroom. The bed was large and comfortable. Wifi is free and... More

We know Canterbury is not a Cinque Port but we were catching up with an University Friend whilst in the area to speak. The owner, Adrian reserved our room quickly over the phone en route, and then provided a parking voucher (£6) to park in the Theatre car park during our stay once we had booked in. We stayed in...

We stayed 3 nights to explore Canterbury. On arrival, the luggage was unloaded at the front door and passed to the friendly and welcoming owner who handed us a car park voucher for 3 nights (£6 per 24 hours) in the car park just 100 yards away. Then we were shown to our room which was spotlessly clean, very comfortable... More

My partner and I stayed at the White House as part of a weekend visiting Kent and our choice of hotel could not have been better. The period property is immaculately presented externally and internally, it is tucked away just a couple of minutes walk from the city centre with plenty of secure parking nearby, the bed was of very...

I had the pleasure of staying in the White House for a night and I wish I had stayed longer! I got Room 1 which was very comfortable and clean. Adrian is an affable host, and it felt more like staying in a home than at a B&B. Plus, the breakfast in the morning was a great start to my... More

Every year my daughter and I spend a weekend together in the UK and this years trip was superb, TWH is beautiful and the owners have ensured the many original features have been kept. Adrian was a helpful host, our room was spacious with a big comfy superking bed and plenty of hot water for the large shower. A delicious... More

As good as all the other reviews which had guided us to this excellent b & b well located near the centre of the city with so many sights and eating choices very near. Lovely room, good breakfast with quality ingredients - what more could you want?
