Staying at the White House was a lovely experience. I was on a mini break in Dorset, and Carol & Rob are the perfect hosts, and made my holiday complete. I had a wonderful room on the top floor. Dual aspect, lovely views, spotlessly clean, and nice crisp and modern furnishing with a lovely comfortable bed. One bonus was having... More

What a lovely bed & breakfast, Carol & Rob made us feel very welcome with tea and biscuits on our arrival. The room we stayed in was the king woodpecker room which was spotlessly clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated throughout. Breakfast times were flexible with a great variety of choice. The eggs were free range and provided by their own... More

I agree with 'Nigel A' review, when you drive past it doesn't look much but when you park up & walk to the front door then you can see how much care and effort Carol and Rob have put into this place to make it as comfortable and inviting as they can. The room we stayed in was the King/Superior... More

My husband and I chose The White House because it is rated No 1 in Poole on Trip Advisor. We have always passed it and didn't think that it looked much on the outside from the main road. We were not disappointed in any way. Carol and Bob were lovely hosts, very friendly and helpful and made us feel very... More

When you drive past and park in the drive it looks like a normal B&B but as you walk round to the entrance you soon realise this is something special. You seem to be walking over water at you walk to the door. Once inside you're greeted by Carol. Very friendly lady. My room was the sparrow room. A large... More
