Historical Traveller Reviews of Brighton White House Hotel


from ladyfelsham
My boyfriend and I were desperate to get out of London for a weekend and were so happy to actually get in somewhere that we didn't mind paying £110 a night - but two problems caused us to change our minds after the stay.

Trip Advisor reviews of the White House were generally accurate - it is nicely looked after, the owners were nice, the breakfast was good, the other people staying were quiet and we did have a small chunk of seaview from our room. A bit of schlepp from the station, but the 37 bus takes you pretty close.

Problem number 1 was the bed. We had walked over six miles along the seafront that day and I could have slept anywhere - or so I thought! Our room contained a squeaky new four poster bed that looked quite inviting, but had a mattress that was harder than the floor (as we found out when we gave up on the bed altogether at 3am).

Problem number 2 was the plumbing. After an awful night's sleep, we were looking forward to a nice shower to try and wake us up a bit. Alas, no. The plumbing is linked up to the toilet next to us, which was in use a lot and which caused the water to go boiling hot without warning and then completely cold, so standing under the showerhead for more than a couple of minutes was impossible.

I don't know what the other rooms were like, but these two things really marred the stay for us and we won't be returning.

Small, but adequate

from A TripAdvisor Member
Unfortunately, because our party booked late, we were left with the small double rooms, and wow - they were small! However, the decor, furnishings etc were of excellent quality, the owners were very friendly and the breakfasts were outstanding! This is a great hotel, and one i would stay in again, as long as I stayed in a double on my own, or got one of the larger rooms. I have marked the room from a 5 to a 4 simply based on room size. The hotel is situated in a quiet location in Kemp Town, just 10 mins walk to the Pier, and literally 30 seconds fro the sea front.

Tight Squeeze!!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at the Whitehouse on 28th/29th October 2005, after an admittedly late booking. There were only small double rooms left (see the 'Other Rooms' on their website). I booked 3 double rooms for 6 people. What I didn't realise was that these were probably the smallest hotel rooms we'd ever stayed in.
The rooms were tiny, and I'd suggest that they would only sleep 1 person comfortably. There was a small double bed, but room only enough to walk to the bathroom and that was it - the bathrooms were minute. It was impossible for two people to be in the rooms at one time - our partners had to change in the hall when we were getting ready to out!
The positives were that the rooms were clean, fresh and the breakfasts were great. The location of the hotel was excellent too. I'm sure there were much better rooms, so I would advise if there are two of you, that you hold out for one of those or be prepared for a very tight squeeze!!

I don't know what the reviewers from Toronto expect from B&B's for £80 per room per night, but I found the White House fantastic.

Considering the cheapest room in this area is around £60 per night, I found it very reasonably priced considering it is right on the sea and in Brighton.

It makes such a nice change to find a B&B on the seaside that is modern and clean and didn't make me feel uneasy about sleeping in the sheets or about what I was going to find in my breakfast! Normally B&B's and hotels at the seaside tend to be old, dingy and smelly!

I found the standard of cleanliness very high indeed and thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast and didn't have to worry about how many times the sausages had been reheated!

I have only stayed here once but plan to stay there again, whenever I visit Brighton in the future. The couple running the place were very friendly. The rooms were slightly small but I would rather have a smaller, clean, bright and airy room as opposed to a large, grotty, smelly one!

I would recommend this hotel/b&b to anyone visiting Brighton!

Worth the money!

Kathryn and Sean are fantastic hosts and we were sad to leave, they go out of there way to take care of you.

It's a welcoming and bright B&B with really comfortable beds and beautiful decor, the weather was great so I really enjoyed sitting in there front garden area with there 2 chubby but adorable cats!

Breakfasts were great well needed after a night out with a varied menu to suit everyone.

See you next year Guys x x x

Nice breakfast but very small room

from WaltR
Having read all the reviews prior to the one from Toronto we decided to book at the White House - big mistake. I have to say I agree with the reviewer from Canada that this too has to be the smallest room I have ever stayed in and for £80 per night is grossly overpriced.
The room overlooked rooms in other houses across the street and with there being no net curtains you needed the blinds down to get changed. The shower cubicle was so small that I kept knocking myself against the temperature control with the result that I either had cold water or water that was much too hot.
Whilst the breakfast was fine and the choice excellent it wasn't particularly better than others elsewhere. Parking was not a major problem but could have been better.

t recommend a better place to stay!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the White House for 4 nights in August and had a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

After arriving at the B&B (after a VERY long drive) we were immediately welcomed by a friendly face who directed us to where we easily found a parking space and then proceeded to carry our bags up to our fantastic room which had a lovely sea view. Both our room and bathroom were very spacious and elegantly decorated (and put our décor at home to shame!). Awaiting us in the room were complimentary chocolate bars, which were very much appreciated!!

The breakfasts were equally yummy, offered plenty of choice and were definitely something to look forward to getting up for.

The B&B is in a great location and is only a few minutes stroll from all the local attractions, bars, restaurants and The Lanes.

Sean and Kathryn could not have been more helpful or friendly, and whilst they were very professional, it felt more like staying with friends. We couldn't recommend a better place to stay in Brighton, and look forward to returning next year!

Brighton Pride 05

from Suziesmirnoff
My partener Helen and I stayed at the Whitehouse Brighton from 05.08 for 3 nights. I have to say that from the moment we booked the room, Sean and Katherine were of the utmost help. They kept us informed of all things pertaining to our stay via email. The room was small but we had been advised of that and the modest price reflected it also.To be fair. This is a B & B so residents are out all day and the room size was not at all a problem for us as it was just for sleeping in. We were in the heart of the area and just a short walk to all that we needed. The breakfast menu was of the highest standard and we tried many different selections and never had a complaint to utter. I personally will be recommending this establishment to all my colleagues and friends. We would like to wish Sean and Katherine all the very best and we will be seeing them again next year.

Smallest rooms in England

from A TripAdvisor Member
From the beginning our stay at The White House was uncomfortable and frustrating. The owners assured us that parking would not be a problem. When we arrived we circled around the neighborhood for 45 minutes! Exhausted, we ended up several blocks over in an underground parking garage where we had to walk back to the B&B to get more money as the overnight charge was 8 pounds. Upon settling in, the owners were defensive about the parking and told us again how we should have been able to find parking along the streets.
Trying to put this behind us, we tried to settle in, but found our room to be so small that only one person could comfortably fit in the room at a time while unpacking. The furniture is so small and low that we felt like giants. The shower was so small that I hit my elbows every time I moved. Also due to the lack of ventilation and cooling, we had to leave our window open, which meant we heard every passerby, every car, every motorcycle as well as a mother seagull who had nested directly across the street from our window. The best part of The White House is their breakfast which is fabulous, especially their salmon and egg. Plus they did carry our luggage up to our rooms which was on the top floor. During our whole trip throughout England this was the worst experience we had as most B&B's were more than inviting and comfortable.

Fantastic - will be back

from JazG!
Fantastic place! Stayed here twice already and will definately be back. Lovely rooms, spotlessly clean and right by the sea. The owners are a lovely friendly couple who make you feel very welcome and its the best hotel breakfast ever!

Top Local Tips for Brighton

Blanch House Cocktails Go and get yourself a cocktail from the Blanch House bar - they're fantastic!!

Luxury Veggie Dining Try Terre a Terre for a real veggie treat. Portions are big so if you like variety then ask for the Tapas dish as a main course (you'll struggle to finish it). Start with the olives or Tofu. A real treat.
