The view from our room was beautiful. We had the place to ourselves. The breakfast was okay. Clean, private and peaceful. The beach is just a walk away. Only bumped into people (including the breakfast lady) Monday when we checked out.

A simple bed and breakfast with stunning views over the sea. Nice and clean. We didn't realize that the tv and the kitchenette were both in the wardrobe and there were no signs so this was frustrating ! A simple breakfast which was acceptable. Reasonably priced and an easy stay.

When I first viewed The White House I was immensely impressed. It is a stunning, stunning place with spectacular views. I stayed for two nights (10 & 11 October 2016). We met the manager when we arrived on Monday afternoon and did not have any contact again until we left on Wednesday morning. My first night was great ended with...

From the exterior it really looks like a great property! Once we got inside we were met by a friendly host, who also upgraded our room to the presidential suite. It's a large room with amazing sea views! The breakfast was decent. The room (and property) itself needs some upgrading. The furniture is outdated. But what was more disturbing was...

Rooms nice. Great Setting. Amazing views. People awesome. Breakfast good. Bathrooms need attention as outdated and showers leak water onto floor. Larger towels would also have been nice. Would I go back, yes I would but some attention to finer detail is important.

The White House is in a quiet and safe residential area. It is the private family mansion of a business magnate with various family members each having a wing downstairs. The guests are often business associates, so the atmosphere is a bit different. Every room has an ocean view and the sound of crashing waves is lovely. Rooms are comfy...

At first glance this imposing B&B sits on a hill overlooking the sea and is majestic. On closer inspection the lack of maintenance is obvious. Being close to the sea has its advantages and disadvantages. The room I stayed in was seriously in need of some structural and other maintenance as did the outside areas. Windows also need cleaning and...

This B&B has absolutely breath taking views. The staff are so friendly and the breakfasts are fit for a King. The B&B has a warm atmosphere reception and room was well located with a private en-suite bathroom. The stay was made extra special with the lovely white linen and towels and the complimentary soaps and shampoos even have the White...

WiFi was never accessible: Even though this place had very few other guests while we were there, we were not able to access the WiFi - kept getting a message that there were too many other users. Two floor tiles in the room were cracked, with sharp edges pointing up - this should have been replaced when it broke. The...
