“B&B Heaven :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

There are many good reasons going to Kent, and among them the White House B&B may probably be one of the best. We (a couple from Germany and their dog) stayed there for two nights in early August 2013 and were welcomed warmly by Sharon. We found a basket, a blanket and biscuits for our dog in our room (so sweet, Sharon) and the most lovingly prepared vegetarian breakfast ( sitting in the garden next to Sharon's bumblebee lavender ).
We enjoyed that cosy, quiet place.
Thank you, Sharon, we'd love to come back on our next visit to UK.

The three of you were delightful guests and I loved doing the home made hash browns for your Veggie breakfast.
Though Velo the lovely dog did enjoy the odd sausage.
It was no problem to do an early breakfast and hopefully it kept you going till you got home.

We recently spent 5 nights with our 3 year old daughter. Sharon is at the heart of the B&B and could not have made us feel more welcome -- and Laurie, despite some of my random requests. We were very comfortable in the Poirot room and our daughter loved many things about the home including feeding the fish, exploring the garden, mastering the rocking horse and seeking out the cats. Sharon's breakfasts are "to die for" and we got to sample a variety of cooked breakfasts throughout the week including blueberry pancakes, local eggs etc. Would definitely recommend anyone to visit the lovely art deco house and Sharon and Laurie for a relaxing and welcoming stay. We enjoyed many of the sites which are on the doorstep of Birchington including Minnis Bay (bikeriding), Joss Bay, Broadstairs, Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Railway, Quex Park, the beach at Westgate, and Margate.

Hi Sue, it was a real pleasure to have the three of you here.
You could not wish for a more delightful and well behaved three year old and you two weren't bad either!
Looking forward to seeing you again in the future.

Wonderful friendly welcome from Sharon after a far too long journey down the M2!! The room was very clean and the bed afforded a wonderful night’s sleep. Breakfast was plentiful, well cooked and very tasty – you certainly don’t go hungry at the White House.

We stayed two nights and having been brought up in Thanet, in a typical 11 bedroomed Cliffonville Guest House, lived in Thanet for 28 years and have travelled there 10+ times a year for the past 26 years this was the first time we had stayed anywhere other than with parents – I am very pleased to say we made the right choice and will definitely be staying again!

The White House is really good value for money, in an often forgotten part of the Island!

I recently stayed at Sharon and Laurie's lovely B and B, whilst on a two-day trip with my 5 and 3 year old girls to the super beach at Minnis Bay. We had a great time, made all the more special by the warm welcome we received from Sharon at the WhiteHouse. Nothing was too much trouble and I was incredibly impresed with how accomodating and thoughful our hosts were in relation to having two young children stay in their wonderful house. Sharon allowed the girls to explore the garden, play in the tree house, pick fruit for breakfast and feed their Koi Carp in the garden pond. Sharon is so clearly passionate about her business and ensures her guests are really well looked after. Thank you; we will return.

We booked just before the recent heat wave and spent a very enjoyable weekend in Westgate-on-Sea and Birchington. Nothing was too much trouble for Sharon & Laurie. When we arrived early Sharon was quite happy for us to leave our bags as we made our way to the beach which is 5 mins walk away. The room we had booked was the the Poirot which had a huge and comfortable bed. Sharon left us milk for teas and coffee and the bathroom was clean and tidy. Breakfast was a feast. You could not ask for more. Sharon has just opened the B&b and we both wish her & Laurie every success. We have friends in the area and did not hesitate to recommend the B&B to them.

What a fantastic B&B. Sharon and Laurie are the perfect hosts in a wonderful Art Deco house. The rooms are very well appointed with the most comfortable huge bed. The breakfast is to die for with pretty much anything you could want, including fresh fruit picked from the most delightful garden. Gluten free products too as well as "Birchers", which is a must try start to the day. Lovely stay and highly recommended indeed. I WILL be back for sure!

You could not ask for a more perfect stay; friendly welcome, king sized beds, full Kent breakfast in their beautiful garden, fresh coffee, the best Bircher muesli I've ever tasted, tastefull Art Deco theme coupled with the warmth of Sharon and Laurie the hosts. We could not have had a better experience and it was all so well priced. You MUST STAY HERE.
