I took my elderly disabled grandmother down to Poole to visit Monkey World and stayed at The White House for two nights. Communication was excellent, Carol answering all my queries on accessibility. They had a ramp to the doorway with smooth flat walkways and gardens everywhere else. Mobile hand grips were left out for use in the bathroom along with... More

This Guest House was a complete pleasure to stay in, Carol and her husband were extremely welcoming and did everything they could to make us comfortable. We certainly hope to make a return visit, especially as it is in such a good location for the Poole Channel Ferries. Excellent breakfast.

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.
