I've just spent 3 weeks in the apartment @ the white house. From the minute i talked and booked with Adrian - i knew i was going to be looked after. Excellent room - spotlessly clean. Very quiet and had 3 weeks of excellent sleep. Lovely bathroom, fantastic shower and the added bonus of a kitchen, washing machine and really... More

Another wonderful stay at The White House. Lovely, comfortable room. Good breakfast, freshly cooked. Very central location with lots of places to eat close by. Parking easy and convenient. We would certainly have no hesitation in recommending this chic B & B. Thank you Adrian & Sharon.

My husband and I chose The White House hotel based on it's proximity to the Cathedral, where our daughter was playing in a concert. We were welcomed warmly by Adrian and shown to our room at the front of the building, on the second floor. We were pleasantly surprised by our room, which was clean, stylish and had all the... More

Although the festive season is well and truly over, I felt compelled to write about the wonderful stay I had throughout the Christmas period at The White House. Upon arrival my room was beautifully clean and comfortable. The owners Adrian & Sharon were so very welcoming ,and continuously went out of their way to make me feel " at home".... More

What a fabulous hotel - from the decor, to the service, location & ambience created by the owners. You are literally right in the middle of Canterbury overlooking The Marlowe Theatre and a hop, skip & jump to the Cathedral & shops/wide range of restaurants & pubs. I will definitely be going back and would highly recommend it to others.... More

The Whie House is perfectly positioned for visiting all of the attractions and historical sites of the city, all within easy walking distance. Our room (No 4) was at the back of the property overlooking the Marlowe Theatre and is very quiet. The owner was very friendly and helpful with good eating/drinking suggestions at nearby establishments and wants to ensure... More

My partner and I were staying one night to celebrate my sisters graduation. The White house is less than a 10 minutes (slow paced!) walk to the cathedral and all shops, bars, cafes and restaurants are within walking distance. We were warmly welcomed, even though we arrived early, and they were very helpful with directions, advice of where is good... More

What a wonderful hotel. Right next to the town for shopping, eating, sightseeing. My friend and myself go away for some shopping, drinking, escape from the family time every year and had never been to Canterbury, so we looked here on tripadvisor for somewhere decent to stay. We were greeted and treated like members of the family - nothing was... More

We were given a nights stay and tickets for LWMVC concert in the Cathedral by our family, so we extended the trip by an extra night. When we arrived we were met by Adrian who was very helpful and extremely pleasant. He showed my husband the way to the car park which is literally 50yards away and whilst my husband... More

The White House was perfect for our overnight stay in Canterbury and we would definitely recommend it. It was clean and well furnished and the breakfast was amazing with plenty of choice and delicious food. The service was excellent both when booking, arriving and during our whole stay. It's location is ideal for reaching most places easily and we were... More
