There's no place like Herm - it's a home away from home. The food is great and even when the weather isn't, you can sit in front of the fire with a hot chocolate and do a jigsaw or play a board game. It does change a bit, but usually for the better with the addition of things such as the woodland walk. After all the day trippers have left and the children had high tea and a splash in the pool, you can relax with a delicious 4 course meal and hopefully watch a Herm sunset.

Repeat visits to the hotel for 20 years suggests you are doing something right! Is it is the quality of the accommodation, the food, the wine or the service.? Simple answer.all the above!

The White House Hotel is not so much a step back in time as a step out of time away from all the concerns of everyday life. From the moment your luggage disappears onto the ferry all you have to do is enjoy the personal and personable service all staff offer. Other than a good wi-fi service if you need the biggest and latest TV screens, computer games and multiple channels on line I am delighted to say that you won’t want to go to Herm. The entertainment is provided by nature in the form of outstanding and varied scenery constantly changing in the dramatic tides. Supported by outstanding food sourced daily and from the local environment wherever possible and fine wines subsidised by direct purchase from the vineyards and the lack of VAT in the Channel Islands dining at the White House is memorable. Regardless of the weather each day comes down to a few simple decisions- which of the many choices for breakfast, which way round the island to stroll today and what to eat and drink at dinner. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped and if the weather is unkind, whilst a stroll round the island is equally dramatic, the roaring fires, well stock library and games with other guests are as inviting on your return. The only slight problem is that with a limited number of rooms and an outstanding proportion or repeat business you will be lucky to get a booking! How do I know – we keep going back year after year for the magnificent wine tasting weekends that are on offer! See you there.

A gem of an island. Small enough to walk to every corner and explore in a few days, large enough to have a community life. If you want a holiday destination that gives you character, peace, wonderful vistas, good food and much, much more visit Herm. You will not be disappointed.

A stay at the White House Hotel is very special. The hotel isn't large so you don't feel anonymous and the service is personal but professional. We visit every year in the summer and thoroughly enjoy the comfortable decor and beautiful gardens. There are no clocks or televisions, so you really feel that you've got away from it all. The staff are welcoming and very friendly.

Herm, how can I exsplaine why most visitors call it paradise, because that's what Herm Island is. As soon as one steps foot on Herm you feel as if you are somewhere totally different to anywhere else in the worl. Golden beaches, wonderful cliff walks covered with wild flowers in the spring, when walking around the south of the island you come across the most beautiful views of Sark and Jethou jotting out of the blue sea, while taking in the views one can smell the wild flowers and the heat coming up from the cliffs belowe. Continuing your walk to the White House for lunch in the garden. Then a ferry back to Guernsey, looking back at Herm as one leaves Herm I guarantee you'll say to yourself, I'll be back.

What's not to love! The rooms are large,beautifully decorated and have views to die for! The staff are warm and welcoming and can't do enough to make your stay perfect. As for the food, one word, AMAZING!! I have travelled around the world twice and The White House is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in. We go every year and the island and hotel never let us down. Can't wait to go back in April! To stay in the White House Herm should be on every ones bucket list 😃

I fell in love with this hotel when was luck enough to get a summer job in 1996. I was lucky enough to also hold my wedding reception there a few years after and return with so many friends and family. The hotel has the most incredible views and the excellence and professionalism of the staff will remain with me forever.

5 star quality, very restful and excellent food. If you can try and get a room within the hotel rather than one of the surrounding cottages which can be a little damp.
