The White Elephant Hotel on Nantucket is a real treat. Perched on the harbour, looking across to where the ferries and fishing boats appear and disappear in the mist, it just oozes an old style Cape Cod atmosphere, The rooms are super clean and comfortable and have balconies where one can sip wine and reflect on the tranquil ocean-side scenary. From the moment I arrived at the hotel we just went into a deep relaxation. The service and staff are excellent. They will pick you up and take you to the hotel from the ferry but the hotel is really only a ten minute walk to the town and its shops and restaurants so you have the best of both worlds. When booking be careful not to confuse the White Elephant Hotel with the White Elephant Resort, the hotel is much more romantic. They tell me that Obama holidays on Nantucket, he probably doesnt stay at the White Elephant, but really he should, he could do with the rest and relaxation!
