Spend another 2 nights with Ian and Liz at the White House and I sure wish the White House in DC was run as well and this boutique hotel. The place is warm and friendly with a fire in the fireplace every cool evening. Fhe food is super with breakfast sometimes made with eggs from their own chickens. The rooms... More

This was our second visit and it was just as good. Great food, brilliant and friendly service and a delightful room for a family. Traffic troubles mean we were late arriving and the team were very accommodating. We wouldn't hesitate to go back!

Albeit not the best value package for money around this pleasant Hotel is charming and nothing is too much trouble by Liz/ Ian and its decor is pleasing to the eye and within the character of the house, beds are comfortable and rooms spacious with all necessities including replenished chocolate cookies every day.

Thanks for your feedback and we are pleased you enjoyed nearly all the aspects of your stay. There are of course cheaper places available in the area but 'price' and 'value' are not necessarily the same thing as we feel has been recognised in the awarding of the Dorset Tourism Award best B&B for 2014.

This is the third time we have had a short September break at the White House and, again, we have enjoyed Liz and Ian\'s warm welcome and generous hospitality.

Lovely stay at the White House which turns out to be an elegant period Regency Villa with large airy rooms throughout - flooded with light from the huge windows. Staying there felt just like a country w/e should. Dinner deserves real praise, nothing fussy - just well sourced local produce cooked with a deft hand. Proper reduced stock saucing and... More

We have spent many holidays in Dorset/East Devon and thoroughly love the area. Having noticed the White House on previous visits and thinking 'That looks a nice place', we decided to give it a try.

We booked this hotel on the strength of the trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed for our anniversary weekend away. The hotel is a beautiful Regency villa which is superbly maintained and decorated in a small village just a couple of miles from Lyme Regis. There is a car park to the rear which is a major advantage... More

Our whole family got together and took all the rooms for a few days recently. We had a wonderful stay. Ian and Liz were extremely welcoming hosts and very helpful with local knowledge on where to go and how to get there. Ian's cooking is fabulous so try a dinner as well as the breakfast. Very highly recommended.
