Having lived in Guernsey all my life I can't believe I have left it so long to come to Herm and stay at The White House. Such a lovely hotel and our room was beautiful with views of the beach which was only 50 meters from our balcony. A proper getaway that I would highly recommend it.

I stayed for two nights at the lovely hotel on the beautiful channel island of Herm for an organised yoga weekend. The hotel is stunning and located by the harbour where the boat arrives; it is also next to a lovely small sandy beach. The hotel is very comfortable; I stayed in October and it had roaring coal fires and...

Even though it was the last week of the season there didnt seem to be any deterioration in anything, the service was as always impeccable, room quality very good, the only thing I would like is to have a face flannel provided as well as the relevant towels. One other thing which...

What a jewel. Stayed for a 'wine tasting' weekend which included full board (evening meal and breakfast + sunday lunch) for 2 nights. WOW! Not being used to fine dining I was blown away by the quality of the food. The wine selection was extremely good so 10 out of 10. Did I forget to mention the staff, they provided...

It would be impossible to improve on the service noted in my last review but I'm happy to report that standards have definitely not slipped. Service this good stems from high morale amongst the staff and that is in turn created by sound leadership and management. This is demonstrated on a daily basis. Our room was clean, light and bright....

I enjoyed a quite acceptable Sunday roast lunch followed by a delicious dessert after a walk and a swim at Shell beach on this wonderful island. However I was more fortunate than French visitor who arrived later after her walk at the bistro at about 2:30 to be told that she could not have anything to eat. Three times she...

My wife and I returned to the island after a 2 year absence. Subtle changes and continued developments in the Hotel. Extremely comfortable rooms, superb food and wine in the Conservatory Restaurant, Lounge and Garden. The quality of service, attitude and professionalism of staff and the very high quality of management aid the enjoyment of a truly peaceful break. Some...

Leaving our little one behind in Guernsey we had our first trip to the White House despite visiting Herm a lot previously. From the moment you step on the island, relax, luggage goes from boat to room, seamless check in and very quickly sat with drink by pool. Weather was v kind to us. Hotel food was fabulous, 2 gourmet...

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
