We stayed 8 nights in an apartment in The White House and although (self?) rated 4 star, it certainly was not that good in our experience. We booked a 1 bedroom apartment but were given a 2 bed one, which was very good as there is so little room in the bedroom, which had only a very hard, not so comfortable, double sized bed, wardrobe quite small and nowhere for a suitcase to be stored, so we used the 2nd bedroom as a dressing room for one of us. The kitchen was poorly fitted out, the dishwasher barely worked (we did report that on the first day or so but nothing was done about it). The apartment just lacked warmth and the whole building needs an update. There is no lift which could bother some. The position is great with easy access to the beach and McCrossin Street but we felt we were overcharged for what we had.
It is fair to say that the Manager is a very pleasant lady who, when we mentioned the dishwasher problem and the fact that there were only 2 water glasses (there was some plastic ware), did give us some more glasses , although they were in need of a good wash.
