We stayed for 2 nights in a cottage room with an en suite. The cottage room was quiet, warm and cosy with a huge comfortable bed and good quality bed linen. The cottage room is part of what was once a cottage but is now attached at one end of the hotel making the rest of the amenities accessible. The staff were very helpful and service was excellent. We ate in the various restaurants and the food was delicious especially the calamari in the Mermaid Tavern where we got to meet a lot of the staff who work there, all of which were friendly and very proud of the hotel and island. The hotel was busy while we were there but you were made to feel like you were a guest and that you mattered rather than a number, staff were very attentive without being in your face, always professional and friendly.The hotel has fantastic views across to Guernsey and when the tide is out only a minutes walk to a sandy flat beach with rock pools and sheltered areas for exploring and relaxing. The gardens around the hotel are well maintained and have some unique flora and fauna, some of which you can see on one of the walks around the island. We took a short walk over to shell beach and could see why it was so popular with families and those staying on Guernsey. The pale gold sand, clear aqua blue sea reminded us of the Caribbean! If you wanted you could have stayed out all day exploring the island or relaxing at the beach. Our teenage son wanted to go on the rib and kayak adventure but unfortunately didn't have time but we were told it was good fun and one way of experiencing the sea and cliffs around Herm.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- As the gentle chugging of a tractor heralds the arrival of your luggage, you know The White House Hotel is special. After all, how many hotels can boast a Britain in Bloom Gold Award-winning island as their garden, a harbour-side setting and such spectacular sea views? Tradition is cherished at this unique hotel to which many families have been coming for three generations. You'll find a variety of delightful bedrooms, where you won't find televisions, clocks or telephones, as somehow they don't seem appropriate on Herm. You will find world class cuisine in the 2 rosette Conservatory Restaurant, and exceptional service from our friendly team.
