The location is great. Tucked just off the high street, close to shops and the Marlowe theatre. A short walk from Canterbury West Station .Decor was modern in a beautiful Georgian house. A very comfortable weekend spent at the White House.

The White House is a classy little place in the heart of Canterbury. I had two nights in November and it felt like a treat to stay there. The owner takes great care to make you feel at home and welcome. Lots of stylish design touches in the room. Breakfast was really great. I wouldn't describe it as a boutique... More

Stayed one night to attend my Grandson's graduation.Adrian was so friendly and helpful and the location was great. The accommodation was spotless and tastefully decorated. Finally finished our stay with a delicious cooked breakfast. Would definitely stay again.

A warm, relaxed welcome. Everywhere was clean and well-decorated. Room was warm and comfortable. TV worked very well. Good quality toast and sausage at breakfast- always my measure of a good B&B! I will want to return to Canterbury and will definitely stay at the White House again. Sally W, Clevedon

I have stayed here several times now (and will continue to do so), excellent central location, nicely decorated, Adrian is always very helpful. Car parking across the road (voucher available for small charge from the White House). Good breakfast in nice surroundings. Great shower and a comfortable bed.

The White House is conveniently sited and the owner friendly and helpful. The fact that we did not enjoy our stay was probably as much our fault as theirs. On arrival I was shown how the TV worked but failed to grasp the necessary interplay between the two remote controls that was essential to obtain a picture. As a result... More

Perfectly positioned next to the Marlow Theatre, The White House is a very comfortable and tastefully decorated. We parked at my daughters accommodation about 10 minutes away but understand its around £6 per day just opposite the hotel. Adrian was friendly and helpful and we would definitely stay there again.

We were about to start the Via Francigena from Canterbury to Rome, and the White House was ideally positioned for the Cathedral. Adrian, the owner, could not have been more helpful. We arrived with two bikes (we were cycling the road to Rome) and Adrian went out of his way to store them securely in a basement room and helped... More

Excellence and Elegance - what a delightful and enjoyable stay ! Three of us spent the weekend at The White House a couple of weeks ago and highly recommend it. The rooms are beautifully furnished. The beds are large, luxurious and comfortable. The walk-in showers are quite spacious, which pleased me as I am a large person and don't like... More
