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

I love staying at the white house. Carol and Rob have an amazing customer service. The rooms are of a very high standard and very clean. Very relaxed on rules and breakfast times are relaxed. Lovely range of breakfast products in the morning. The only thing I don't like is leaving. Thanks Carol and see you again soon. Jordan and... 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

Stayed here for two nights last April. A lovely, modern, light,airy and comfortable place to be with a warm and relaxed atmosphere. Our room was huge and decorated to the highest of standards. The bed was amazingly comfortable and the bathroom superb. We loved the fact that there was a mini fridge in the built in wardrobe along with an... More

We wanted to spend a night in Poole on our return from a trip to France. This B&B was much better than many 4 star hotels we have stayed in. The welcome from the owners was genuine and warm, even though we arrived after 10pm. Fresh cake, and a nice cuppa awaited us on arrival in our room. The whole... More

Our two day stay here with our two dogs, was splendid. Not only was the room large, light and airy, everything you would expect in a top hotel was provided, from fresh milk in the fridge (not little plastic pots with longlife in them) to fluffy white bath robes. The spacious communal living area was at our disposal and when... More
