“Wonderful place to stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013

A hotel full of little details. Decoration, service and of course the wonderful people that work there.
You really get the feeling of the truly English people starting with the owners personal attention and not the call center type. To people like us from Costa Rica is very important to get the personal touch of the owners.

Just a few steps from Canterbury High Street, the White House, a beautifully restored Georgian town house, is tucked into a quiet residential neighborhood. Although our ensuite room (as expected) was modest in size, we wanted for nothing. It was comfortable, clean, well-appointed and attractive. The hosts have thought of every small detail to make their guests comfortable. An excellent breakfast is served in the beautiful high-ceilinged dining room. The cathedral is a pleasant ten minute walk, the Marlowe theater is around the corner, and parking nearby. Great value. Highly recommended.

Would certainly recommend the White House. Travelling from Bristol we were attending a wedding in Canterbury. Adrian was very accommodating in allowing us to check in early and get booted and suited for the wedding. Lovely breakfast too, the poached eggs sorted out the hang over!

My company first booked me into the White House in Canterbury whilst I was visiting for work. As soon as I arrived everything was fabulous, from the rooms which were absolutely stunning to the breakfast, which was delicious (especially the poached eggs). It felt like a break rather than a work trip!
I now book myself into the White House every fortnight without fail and wouldn't pick anywhere else in Canterbury I would rather stay.
I highly recommend the White House

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great, I even stayed in a single once and it was still a great size and excepti...

We had one night at The White House in July 2013, and enjoyed our stay. Adrian is an excellent host, very helpful, and serves a good breakfast. The room was comfortable, with good bathroom and facilities. The location is great both for parking and for walking to the attractions and restaurants. We would happily stay here again!

Excellent Location, very close to good carpark, quiet street but a minutes walk from the town centre. Very clean and modern. We had a superior room in the back, it was roomy, comfortable, lovely bed and good sized ensuite. Breakfast was very pleasant, good quality and enough food. The host was friendly and attentative but not overbearing. Seriously, I can't fault this place.

Room Tip: We were in room 4 on the back, recommended, but given the location I suspect front or back of house...

Rooms were comfortable and clean, food was delicious. The White House location is just about perfect; only steps to the busiest parts of the town, but situated in a quiet alley off the main road. Adrian was a friendly, attentive, and helpful host, even going the extra mile to lend power adapters when we accidentally left ours behind. Highly recommend to all travelers in Canterbury!

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
