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.

My wife and I stayed at the White House Hotel for one night over the weekend. The whole experience was wonderful. Waking up to the distant sound of sheep in the morning was the cherry on top for me. The breakfast was outstanding. The room stunning. And the hosts were very friendly. Would love to stay here again.

This hotel has only four rooms, which is perfect for our taste. The room was spacious, bright, comfortable, spotless and extremely well equipped. The hotel is quiet, with a friendly atmosphere and situated in a lovely area in Charmouth. Ian and Liz were the perfect hosts, being helpful and friendly. Breakfast was cooked to perfection, as was our evening meal.... More

A lovely, beautiful hotel. Huge bright and airy rooms with little extras that make your stay a little bit more special. Particularly like the fresh coffee in the rooms. Great breakfast too - really, really good! Would recommend to anyone wanting a hotel in Charmouth, we will definitely be returning.
