We found our visit here to be just right. The location is part of what is great. While it is just around the corner from the busy High Street, the White House is on a fairly quiet street and feels a bit removed from the business of town. My elderly mother was able to easily walk to the theater, the Cathedral and all the sights but feel like she had a place to get away and relax. The host was friendly and helpful. I really appreciated his help in details like calling a cab when we needed one and thinking through options in town. Regarding the rooms, we had two and both were very comfortable. Personally, I loved the style of the renovation and I found everything I needed in the room. Overall, it was a great place at a good price in an ideal locations. Enjoy your time 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
