We have just got back from 5 nights at the White House Hotel with our children aged 5 and 7. Lots of like-minded families there, and you wouldn't have known there were so many children - it has a lovely quiet ambience with no TVs - great!
Despite windy wet weather for the first few days, we enjoyed exploring Herm Island, and taking advantage of the hotel's family room with board games and delicous cups of hot chocolate with marshmallows. On the last couple of days the weather was beautiful and we were treated to some glorious views across the water to Guernsey, several happy hours with other children in the outdoor pool, and a lovely boat trip to Sark.
Evening meals deserved their wonderful reputation - the restaurant is one of the best in the Channel Islands. Prompt, courteous service and superb cuisine were available every night, complemented by a beautiful sunset. Earlier children's meals were varied too.
My only very slight niggle is that the housekeeping staff changed the beds of departing guests first (understandably, as boats would arrive with new guests mid-morning) but it did mean that we got back once at 2pm and our room hadn't been done.
However, all-in-all, a wonderful holiday and we would go again....if we can fly more cheaply!
- 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
