“SCW out and about”
Reviewed 20 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Fully equipped to high standard with every amenity catered for, and a nice welcome hamper, the access is a little steep and confined and while the walk down the front is
easy, the uphill return requires a certain level of fitness. There does seem to be a measure of uncertainty as to the name of the cottage (Palm Court)?
Anyway a comfortable stay in near luxury

Hi,
Hope that you are all well & that your trip home was a good one ..Glad that you enjoyed your stay here in The White House. The name can confuse but only because for some reason , known only to themselves ,the agency that we had been using likes to change the names of the properties that it has listed, no idea why ???? The area is hilly as you say . The word Torre means hill hence Torquay. Good job that we have lots of very reasonably priced taxi firms here in the Bay for that end of the day trip back up the hill !!

“Dream holiday in the most beautiful guest house in idyllic surroundings.”
Reviewed 13 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Me and my family, Liz, James and Jack had the pleasure to stay in this beautiful guest house for a week's holiday. Upon arrival after a 6 hour journey, we were met by Linda, one of the very friendly owners of the guest house, and we couldn't have been happier with our surroundings. The guest house is like a home from home with everything you could possibly need to hand. We didn't have to ask for anything for the whole week. A lovely hamper had been left for us with tea and coffee, scones and jam and marmalade, breads and granola, which was perfect after such a long journey.

The guest house was spotless, with a kitchen including a washer/dryer, dishwasher, oven, kettle, toaster and fridge freezer. It was spacious and bright throughout, with a private courtyard, beautiful bedrooms both with ensuite shower rooms, and beds to die for! (We slept like logs). We were made more than welcome to make use of the incredible sub tropical gardens and swimming pool, which my sons absolutely loved. Paul even spent time teaching my youngest son to have more confidence in the pool!
The gardens were absolutely incredible, you were literally surrounded by beautiful palm trees and flowers.

It was a pleasure to return to the White House after each busy day, and our only regret is that we only stayed for one week instead of two! We will most definitely be returning in the near future. Thanks Paul and Linda for helping to make our holiday so special.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 27 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We've had a fabulous stay at The White House. The owners, Paul and Linda, are very warm, welcoming and accomodating. The house is spacious, spotless and very well equipped. The kitchen has everything you could possibly ask for, large fridge, freezer, oven, microwave, dishwasher, plenty of kitchenware. The hamper, by the way, is a very nice touch! The 2 bedrooms each have comfy beds, tv and ensuite bathrooms providing for toiletries and towels. As the house is attached to the Cary Court, we could also make use of the lovely tropical garden, while the kids enjoyed their time in the heated swimming pool - and so they did every single day! The walk into town is just a few minutes down and yet the surroundings of the house are very tranquil. In short, if you're looking for a place to stay on the English Riviera, you will get great value for money at The White House!

“The White House, fabulous self catering accommodation”
Reviewed 25 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

A great holiday yet again at the fabulous Cary Court Hotel, but for a change I decided to try out the self catering accommodation. "The White House" I wasn't disappointed. The White House is an excellent, stylish, spotlessly clean well equipped house with everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. Staying at the White House also means you still get to use the hotel swimming pool and the comfy sun loungers to relax in the glorious tropical garden. As usual, a very friendly warm welcome from Linda and Paul, including a thoughtful tasty hamper! I just can't wait to come back later this year. I highly recommend The White House! Ten out of ten!
