The breakfast is of good quality but, as ide from that, the predominant feeling is that
the owners of the White House are clearly fed up of having strangers in their house. The level of interaction is polite but without any true engagement with people - attempts at conversation are met with minimal response. They're just glad to take your money (quite a lot for what it was) and have as little to do with you, as they can.
The room was pokey, the bed was 4'6", the TV remote didn't work, the shower base was cracked at the wall, there was damp in the dining room.
All in all, they can't be bothered and neither should you - there's a perfectly anonymous Premier Inn just down the road.

Room Tip: Only saw the one we slept in.

Lovely room, all VERY clean, small ensuite but unfortunately you have to have what there is in Edwardian house conversions. I have a relative who runs a similar establishment in Cornwall and the size is what it is. They were not in when we got there - are they supposed to have no life at all?? Everything was very well organised, key left where it should be - no problems at all. Booked a surprise for 65th birthday and husband thoroughly enjoyed it - could have booked a hotel at a lot more money but could not have enjoyed it more - even the sun came out!

Room Tip: Nice room but on a busy road if you have a front one - but then easy access to everywhere in the area.

This is the first time in all my years of going to b&bs that the owners never once introduced themselves. They weren't there when we arrived but left instructions for keys. This was fine. We guess it was the owner at breakfast, but only got a hello. We were there for 2 nights. The room was small and assumed it was a single as the bed was only a 4ft and uncomfortable. Would be very embarrassing for all concerned if you had a larger couple.The bathroom was in need of a revamp and a good clean. It was not cleaned during our stay. I had brushed my hair in the morning, when we returned hair was still on the floor. Probably why behind the toilet it was stained yellow/brown. Our duvet cover was ripped. The "white" towels had seen better days.We received one lot of biscuits on arrival, not replenished the next day. Breakfast stated fresh fruit, this was either an apple or orange. Breakfast tables are small which is probably why the lady serving kept wanting to take plates before you had finished! Parking is a nightmare as to get to the car park you have a very narrow entrance. Wifi is intermittent and would go off in the middle of something then not come back on till hours later. To be honest this place does not warrant the price due to the lack of welcome and no attention to detail, they obviously don't want to do this anymore. Stayed in far better for the same price or less! So disappointed as this was a birthday treat.

Room Tip: Go to another b&b!

Nice little B&B run by a family We booked it blind not staying in the area before and what a nice surprise we had we were in the Carter room at the top of the house overlooking the front of the house ( the rooms are named after US presidents )
Very nice room very quite good location for Highcllffe and about 10 minutes away from Christchurch
Bed very comfortable and slept well
Bathroom a little old fashioned but all worked well nice and powerful shower
Breakfast was very nice all cooked to order
Parking at the back a bit light going down the side of the house so take care
Overall a very nice stay and I would go back again

A good choice for an overnight stay. I went for a small leisure/business trip with my Mum. The room was clean, comfortable, cosy and just what we wanted. I especially love how each room is named after a former US president - we stayed in the Kennedy room. The bathroom was a little small but it wasn't a downer. The cooked breakfast was delicious, and the options of jams, marmalades, sauces, cereals and fruit was great. The only downside was that the TV remote in our room didn't completely work. The volume control button was iffy, and we had to turn it off manually. But it wasn't a huge fault, we were only there for one night. Would visit again if I ever return to Highcliffe.
