We were greeted in the private car park by Ian who insisted on taking care of the luggage. The historic house has been lovingly... More

After a recent stay at the White House Hotel we were discussing its merits and Sue and I decided to individually list them and we came up with a hundred: I have to confess that there was a difference of opinion over the final one. I said that “I was impressed that the female members of the establishment who were... More

We recently spent the valentine weekend at the White House Hotel, Charmouth. The property is a beautiful Georgian House with many original features such as internal wooden shutters and curved doors. We received a very warm welcome on arrival. It was great to have on site parking to the rear of the property and our room was beautiful with a... More

Just got back from a really nice last minute night away. The White House is a lovely property full of charm and chartacter. We stayed in room 3 which was at the back upstairs, really large, spotlessly clean and with the best bath I've ever soaked in! If you want to do some fossil hunting just be aware - after... More

Thanks for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Charmouth beach is a great place for fossiling especially after the recent storms and although Lyme is a great place to visit, there is no need to go to the 'big city' to bag a few ammonites and belemnites. In our restaurant we do endeavour to... More

This is a great cosy hotel with very attentive owners. Room product is great and food quality superb, catered for my pregnant/vegetarian wife effortlessly. Location is a perfect staging point to investigate the Jurassic coastline. Thank you we will be back.

Run by a warm and friendly couple, the food is excellent and the rooms are luxurious. Our room was spacious with beautiful views and an enormous bed which was blissfully comfortable. There were lots of thoughtful touches like dressing gowns, fresh milk in the fridge and ground coffee for the cafetiere in our room. All the food was locally sourced,... More

I stayed here at very short notice, and they managed to accommodate me and my girlfriend (which was amazing). Ian actually picked up the phone whilst in the cinema - That's dedication!

Hi Sam and thanks for a great review. We were glad we could save you from the threat of storms that night. It would not have been much fun in a caravan had it got as bad as predicted! We hope to see you in better weather soon Ianand Liz More

We came here first in 2004 and can't think why we didn't come back sooner, but very glad we did. The rooms and bathrooms have all been upgraded/modernised and look lovely, we'd have been very happy in any of them, but we chose the suite this time as it was a special treat. Don't even think of eating out if... More
