We were enchanted by Herm. The peace and tranquility of the island and the hotel were not what we anticipated, but we were very happy to be engulfed in the charm of Herm's way of life.
Without wishing to embarrass the staff too much, we cannot praise the accommodation and cuisine highly enough - but it goes much deeper than that, as the staff were amazing in their friendliness and willingness to be helpful in every way. I suppose it is wrong to single out particular members of staff, but I will. I'm sorry that I do not know all the individual names, but certain staff members excelled in their friendliness, like the New Zealander in reception, the Assistant Manager (Jennifer?) in the dining room, and the two waitresses in the bar - one Hungarian and one Swedish - who seemed to be permanently smiling and enjoying their jobs. The list goes on, with the two Canadians; and the waiters in the dining room were also equal matches to their female counterparts.
What a real pleasure it was to find such a happy community of employees, in such a beautiful place.
- 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. The Four Star White House Hotel was the first business in the Channel Islands to achieve WorldHost Customer service status in 2012. All of the Hotel bedrooms and bathrooms have been upgraded over the past couple of years ... more less
