We recently spent a night here and really enjoyed it. The B&B is modern in style and very spacious and clean. A place you would happily hang out in as opposed to just sleeping and leaving. The garden area in the back is a welcome little oasis and sun trap! Carol and Rob were very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast... More

We can recommend this b&b. Friendly owners, comfortable bed, clean and well laid out room, good breakfast which included eggs from own hens, several extras such as the offer of tea on arrival, home-made cakes left in the room on a couple of days, milk left in fridge in the room. We would certainly consider going back.

This has to be the best B&B in Dorset we have just had the most fantastic 4day stay. Breakfast and the afternoon home made cakes that just appear in your room when you get back after a day out are superb. The bus stop is right outside to get into Poole and then anywhere else you want to go. Put... More

We stayed at The White House B and B in Poole, Dorset on our way to Jersey on 23rd July and on our return from Guernsey on 31st July. The welcome from Rob and Carol was very warm, we were offered tea and cake when we arrived which was very welcome after a 3-hour car journey. We were able to... More

We spent the weekend here when visiting local area (and married daughter). We got lost, but that was more down to the accuracy of google maps! I rang Carol and she gave very clear directions from where we were and we found it in no time after that. We were made to feel extremely welcome on arrival, and were treated... More
