“Fantastic B&B, highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This B&B was picked somewhat at random and as such always runs the risk of underwhelming. Well nothing could be further from the truth, as it turned out we received a warm welcome, a fantastically tidy room, comfortable bed an excellent breakfast to start the day and a safe place to park off road. I can highly recommend a stay here, you will not be disappointed.

The standard and quality were something you would expect from a 5 * establishment. We stayed in Blackbird which was luxurious and spacious and the attention to detail was unexpected. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for quality and hospitality at a reasonable price.

I have stopped at many b&b but this is the best it's very clean and very very friendly they also do more for you than you could possibly expect. food is good and as much as you want. As i am into my cars it is good that they provide nice private parking for my Porsche. the room is superb as is everything else.

I can definitely recommend this as the place to stay if you are in the Poole area, I will certainly return if I am anywhere in the area again.

many thanks to my hosts Carol and Rob

We spent 7 nights at this lovely B&B. Carol & Rob were very welcoming and our room (Sparrow) was warm and comfortable and well equipped with a door leading to an enclosed garden area for our little shih-tzu Benji to have a 'mooch' around, The breakfasts were delicious and served with absolutely no fuss each and every day and the convivial conservations with Carol and Rob set us up for busy days ahead in and around the Poole area. The lovely home made cakes were an extra treat and much appreciated as was the ramp and the wet room as this made life considerably easier as I am disabled. Everything was perfect, and done with attention to all the details!! A big thanks from Benji for those breakfast sausages Carol !! Thank you so much for making our holiday a memorable one and we will certainly be coming back soon to your awesome B&B!!

I have just spent 2 nights at this wonderful B&B...I can certainly see why they won the 2012 TripAdvisor Award!

The house itself is amazing! As for the rooms they are light, a good size, very comfortable, clean and brilliantly equipped...the added little touches of homemade cake in your room each day is lovely (all fat free of course, so good for the waistline).

The breakfasts are amazing with a choice of various cereals, fresh fruits and yoghurts to a full english. All the food is fresh and locally sourced...I'm certainly going to miss the eggs from the Rhode Island hens!

Carol, Rob (Thomas & Tibby) are so welcoming and accommodating; you feel like you're staying with friends! It's a real home from home and I will definitely stay there again!

We have just spent three nights at The White House B&B in Poole and can highly recommend it. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean and the breakfasts were delicious. There were some nice extra touches like homemade cake for us to have with tea in our room. Carol and Rob were most welcoming and I hope we shall return.

We stayed one night in March on a business trip. The room was magnificent - modern, superbly equipped and very comfortable. The house is very impressive - like something out of Grand Designs. The proprietors could not have been more welcoming and helpful, and we would be very keen to stay there again when we need accommodation in the area.
