Charmouth has long been a favourite of my wife and I and was the chosen base for three night stay to celebrate a major family occasion.

Overnighting in Charmouth we were pleased to stay at the White House. A warm welcome from Ian and we were shown to our lovely room. The only dud being the shower which was very small. At breakfast there were five children under the age of four one of whom was poorly behaved, not the hotel's fault but beware if you... More

Thank you for your feedback, we are pleased you enjoyed most aspects of your stay. We are sorry you found the walk in shower cubicle in Room Two to be 'very small' however I think it worth mentioning that there is also a large bath in that bathroom as well. We do have other rooms with large walk in showers... More

WE thoroughly enjoyed our four day stay at The White House. Everything I would say has been said by Grace099 so no need to repeat, but will echo it tenfold.(I also confess that it crossed my mind to keep this to myself, but that would be unfair) The owners have great sense of what it takes to offer and run...

High praise indeed, thank you very much. Unfortunately the coast paths either side of Charmouth beach do have short diversions as the cliffs crumble away but on the positive side they are constantly replenishing the beach with fossils! Catch the tides right though and its a great walk to Lyme or to Seatown/St Gabriel Steps along the beach - but... More

We were staying in Charmouth and had pre booked a meal at The White House Hotel before our visit. The place is lovely, with an elegant but homely feel, and our family visiting from Colombia particularly enjoyed the evening as 'typically English'!
