My wife and I spent 3 great days here over the Waitangi Day weekend, and found it a very pleasant getaway from the crowds. The Jurys, our hosts, were tremendously helpful with our planning and once we got there -- very responsive and full of good information. The house is well appointed, and has a good, functional kitchen. Rooms are spacious and the bathrooms had all you'd need. It's well located in the town, just a short walk to the stores, pub, restaurants, etc. All in all a great introduction to the Northlands.

Room Tip: Saturday night at the pub is a little rowdy, but not enough to disturb a good night's sleep in one of the rear bedrooms.

Well appointed and comfortable room in an historic setting. The little extra touches made it even more inviting. The White House was well situated within Russell with the main waterfront area a very short walk. Our hosts, Steve and Emma, were friendly, well versed in the local area to suggest activities, attentive with an eye for service yet unobtrusive. Missing those wonderful cooked breakfasts in the garden.

I completely agree with all the recent rave reviews, so I won't repeat the detail.
A lovely property in a great location with wonderful hosts.
I have no hesitation in recommending The White House and hope to return someday.

Russell has always been a favourite place but the first time at the White House. We loved the old world charm and the graciousness of the hosts, Emma and Steve. Sitting on the deck as the sun goes down into the canopy of trees or having breakfast in the morning in the garden. It is actually better being slightly away from the busy-ness of the waterfront which is still only a couple of steps away. Highly recommended.

Steve and Emma were great hosts,always chatty an informative but never intrusive.We really enjoyed our room it was very clean and comfortable.The breakfast was really good and as my wife needed gluten free they went out of their way to cater for here.
We would have no hesitation staying here again this couple made you feel very comfortable.
