We booked the White house by walking through the door and asking if they had rooms that night. The reception and bar area are tired and need an upgrade and as I was shown up to our rooms along a scruffy corridor with carpet that needed a steam clean. My heart sank, that was until the doors to our rooms were unlocked. One room had a wrought iron bedstead the other didn't, both had spotless bedding with a black throw and cushions setting off the crisp white bedding, they were roomy and had wall mounted TV's.
I slept the best I have in months apparently the beds are new and were not skimped on. The bathroom had everything to offer including complimentary toiletries but the mildew in some of the grouting in the shower let it down. Tea and coffee making facilities were in white fay bone china cups and saucers. Breakfast was a surprise with fresh kippers smoked salmon and scrambled egg amongst the choice. Server was friendly and efficient. I spoke to John the owner who purchased the White house and the one next door eleven months ago, he wanted to do more works to overhaul it completely but was loyal to pre-made bookings hence the tired bits. Would I stay here again? Most defiantly, it was comfortable, welcoming and a great place to stop to visit the lakes.
