We chose the White House due to its fabulous location on a quiet lane just off Canterbury’s historic high street. It was perfect for our weekend break as we literally strolled back each day (and evening) in a matter of minutes. Our room was comfortable and clean and perfectly adequate for our needs. Friendly host and fantastic home cooked breakfast each morning too. If coming from London it is just a 10 minute stroll from the station, so a hassle free arrival and departure. Great little guest house, I’d happily recommend over some of the bigger establishments in town.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- If you enjoy staying in stylish accommodation, with all those extra little personal touches that make you feel special as a guest, then welcome to The White House. The property is an elegant Grade II listed Regency Town House, originally reputed to have been the retirement home of Queen Victoria's Head Coachman and built in 1825. Our 4 Star Highly Commended accommodation is especially suited to discerning guests seeking a small intimate property (regrettably we do not cater for children) and its ideal location, within the City walls, is an added bonus for those who enjoy soaking up the vibrant atmosphere of a University city and who appreciate good old fashioned personal service to the impersonality of national hotel chains. Rooms are furnished to ensure maximum guest comfort - large cosy beds to fall into after a hard days sightseeing, soft pillows, with cool contemporary white linens and quality furnishings to ensure a real 'home from home'. A few minutes walk (literally!) will take you right into the main High Street, so we are perfectly situated to browse all the best shops, restaurants and of course a 'must see' visit to the Cathedral and perhaps take in a show at the stunning new Marlowe Theatre.Parking couldn't be easier - across the road in the Pound Lane Car Park - with concessionary vouchers available to our guests at £6.00 for 24 hours ... more less
