Having stayed in many places previously I can honestly say that this was easily one of the best for comfort, cleanliness and friendly hosts. Carol and Rob were very welcoming, the facilities were excellent and the breakfast was top class. This will definitely be the place I will be staying at when going to the nearby Bournemouth International Centre in...

This was our second time staying at the White House b&b. The owners Carol and Rob always go above and beyond to make sure everything is excellent for their guests. The b&b is clean, bright and homely.

We couldn't have found a better place to stay for lovely room, great food and good company. We had to attend a funeral in the area and Carol and Rob made our stay like home from home. My husband managed to have an accident at breakfast with his shirt on the day of the funeral. Within 20 mins Carol had...

We had a fantastic stay with Carole and Rob. They were lovely people and very kind and helpful, even giving us a lift a couple of times!

The owners are delightful. Our dog was welcomed with open arms and given treats upon arrival. The cakes proved each day were a lovely touch. They were kind enough to offer us a lift into Poole in the evening too. I can't praise the breakfasts enough. A delicious array of things to choose from and a wonderful English breakfast cooked...

Easily the best b&b we have ever stayed in. The rooms, the bed, the hosts, the greeting as well as the breakfast were all first class. It's very modern and there are only 4 rooms but with plenty of parking and excellent free WiFi. When we are back down that way, that's where we will be staying. A real home...
