My wife and I have just returned from yet another wonderful, restful stay on this amazing island. Each year there are changes, most of them behind the scenes or very subtle, but what does not change is the atmosphere - as soon as you step off the boat from Guernsey.
Walking speed slows down to a saunter; the absence of clocks assists greatly. Somehow the small island is able to cope with the regular arrival of visitors from over the water, seemingly melting away into the very varied sub tropical scenery.
Meals in the Hotel Restaurant start and end a day perfectly, with a very varied menu and excellent wine list. The quality of food is now very high as are the imaginative combinations set out on ones plate or slate.
The Hotel itself and its cottages are maintained to a very high standard of cleanliness by an excellent team of Housekeepers. This same high standard of service is equally provided by restaurant and bar staff, who continually exhibit a cheerful but professional manner.
Friends ask what do you do all day on such a small island. The answer is very simple - not a lot - resting on the beaches and in the garden or strolling around the miles of paths and lanes. There is always much to watch out at sea during the day.
If you cannot enjoy a holiday on Herm, you cannot enjoy a holiday anywhere.
- 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
