We were welcomed by 4 lovable dogs and felt at home right away. The friendly staff were amazing. We stayed in the Honeymoon suite and was surprised by the size of the room (and we loved the furniture!) Breakfast was a treat every morning. Highly recommend the guesthouse

I stayed at this place for one night. The highlights were the staff/management who were very pleasant and friendly. Beautiful gardens and a very nice building, which is obviously white as the name suggests. I also liked their breakfast a lot as it was very good and tastey. A good sized room, with nice bathroom and a balcony. The bed...

The dalmatians are keen to come inside and settle down if you...

Unfortunately we arrived after dark and left early the next morning so we didn't have enough time to enjoy this fine guesthouse. Our cottage had two well appointed bedrooms, a lounge/kitchen area and a decent bathroom. The restaurant recommended by the friendly host turned out to be excellent. A good breakfast was provided in the morning before we left for...

I have now stayed at 'A White House' twice and both times, I have had a wonderful experience. The room was exquisitely laid out, comfortable and functional. The breakfast will keep you charged through the day! I have stayed there alone and with my nine-year old daughter and we both love it!
