“Superbly comfortable and excellent breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

Small and stylish art-deco property, very well appointed room with a superbly comfortable bed. The breakfasts are excellent, catering perfectly for my gluten-free diet. A joy to stay here, and so close to the beach too. I'll definitely be going back :)

We stayed for 1 night at a the Minnis WhiteHouse in April 2013. What a lovely home, fantastic food, wonderful hosts and a beautiful room. We wish Sharon and Laurie every good wish for this lovely new venture to be a fantastically wonderful experience for all concerned. Can't wait to return. Thank you.

Room Tip: Ask for the Pioret room, it has lovely views and the beds (can be turned into a king size) are so co...

I visit Margate a couple of times a year for business and usually stay in a B&B there but it's been getting more and more expensive whilst the decor gets fustier, so when I found a wonderfully evocative postcard for this unique B&B at a vintage fair I was intrigued. It looked expensive but was a complete bargain. Cheaper than the budget B&B but so much more on offer. The welcome from the lovely Sharon was genuinely warm and I was treated to my favourite Darjeeling tea (try asking for that at your average B&B!) with home-made flapjacks. I cannot stress enough how warm the welcome was and how kindly I was treated during my too-short stay.

As I was travelling alone I plumped for the single room charmingly named Japp with exclusive use of the family bathroom but the larger rooms - Poirot and Hastings! - have en-suite facilities and even a balcony. I once won a stay at the Ritz in London and the breakfast there was the best we have ever had but this was a close contender. Top quality, fresh and home-cooked. I had smoked salmon and scrambled eggs which were cooked to perfection with fresh bagel washed down with endless Darjeeling.

'Japp' was compact but perfectly fitted-out and wonderfully quiet with views over the garden. I will never be staying anywhere else in the area again. Sharon is a natural hostess and a marvellous cook and you will be extremely welcome and very very comfortable in her beautiful White House. Warmly recommended (as you might have been able to tell!).

Room Tip: I had the compact but cute Japp but glimpsed the Poirot suite which would be wonderful for a couple.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a full review. The Dargeeling is bought from Roxy at Loose leaves and Mud in King Street Margate. We try hard to welcome business travellers with flexible breakfast times, free wifi and an ironing board.
Looking forward to welcoming you back later in the year.

We stayed at The Whitehouse last week for one night whilst visiting family in Birchington. The location is a 5 minute walk to Minis Bay, which we took advantage of the following morning after our breakfast. Full English by the way.
The house is an original Art Deco building with a lovely garden. Sharon and Laurie, the owners are delightful, warm and pleasant, and welcomed us with a warm smile and a cup of tea.
Our room had a balcony and an en suit with a fantastic power shower. The bedroom was clean and well equipped with plenty of space and storage, as well as tea and coffee facilities.

Will definitely stay at The Whitehouse again.
