I honestly could not rate this highly enough, absolutely first class and so well priced. The rooms are decorated with elegance and style, perfectly clean with a crisp finish. The beds are extremely comfortable and even the bedding is high quality. The small details from the home-made cake on arrival, cold milk in the fridge, hairdryer, torch, iron + ironing... More

We stayed at The White House for one night on our way to catch the ferry to the Channel Islands. We booked this particular b&b because they welcome pets, and we have two large dogs which travel with us everywhere. We had a superking size bed in a large room, which was extremely comfortable. Dog blankets and biscuits were also... More

The White House has to be the nicest B and B I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. Attention to detail is second to none with everything you could possibly want in need in the room. The owners were very polite and welcoming and couldn't do enough for you. Will definitely be staying here again!!!

Perfect overnight stay for us. The owners stayed up late to welcome us from the ferry. Very comfortable room had very good nights sleep. Excellent breakfast with delicious local produce and free range eggs. Flexible times so we could enjoy a much needed lie in. Would be ideal to stay for longer.

I took my partner away for a surprise trip and was surprised myself about the whole stay. It was so amazing. I didn't expect all the little things from hot chocolate and milk in the fridge to body lotion to a bottle of wine as we were celebrating an occasion! There was so much choice for breakfast and the hosts... More

This establishment is excellent. I stayed for 1 night only but was very impressed and would have no hesitation in staying there again. Few B&Bs would meet this standard and many 4 star hotels would struggle to achieve such high standards. My room was pristine, the bed sumptuous, lots of pillows and a snuggly quilt, good quality white bed linen... More

A wonderful welcome, from a super couple. We stayed on the first floor, with a king size bed and en suite with bath and shower. The linens, towels, toiletries and complimentary hospitality tray refreshments were all of the best quality; even with some freshly made cake.
