If you enjoy staying in stylish accommodation, with all those extra little personal touches that make you feel special as a guest, then welcome to The White House. Located in the city centre in an elegant Grade II listed Regency Town House, accommodation is especially suited to guests seeking a smaller intimate property (regrettably we do not cater for children or infants) Rooms are furnished to ensure maximum guest comfort - large cosy beds to fall into after a hard days sightseeing, with contemporary white linens and quality furnishings to ensure a real 'home from home'. A few minutes walk (literally!) will take you right into the main High Street, so we are perfectly situated to browse all the shops, restaurants and of course a 'must see' visit to the Cathedral or to take in a show at the stunning Marlowe Theatre. We do not have on site parking but offer a concessionary rate of £6.00 for 24 hours in the public car park opposite.

Great location. Very hospitable host in Adrian, who sorted car parking with no difficulty despite it being a Graduation day. Building full of character. Lovely breakfast, would certainly go back and hope to do so! Have stayed before in Canterbury and would recommend 100%.

Good things first, we have stayed here before, the rooms are good, as is the location, and the breakfast is excellent. If things go well, this place will be perfect for you. But a pervading theme of the poorer reviews of this place is the inability of the owner to deal with when

"Ask for a room at the back facing the theatre if possible as the front can sometimes be noisy"
"In warm weather, windows need to be open. Considerable foot traffic in AM, so light sleepers may want a room off the street."
"Rooms at the front of the house can be noisy. 6ft double surprising uncomfortable, we are used to a flat, firm mattress!"
"Room 1 has a lovely big shower and has only 1 flight of stairs."
"the front and back rooms were both quiet and comfortable"
