Close proximity to the airport

Great, wholesome breakfast

Some visitors have compared the early morning breakfast to a lovely home cooked farm breakfast. You will find a variety of choices, from fresh fruit and baked goods, to hot bacon and eggs. Whatever your preference is, you can be assured that breakfast will be a good start to the day.

Negative Reviews

Taxi fare a little steep

There have a couple of complaints from guests who feel that the one way taxi fare from The White House to the airport is a little on the expensive side. Some visitors have suggested that the owners could provide a less expensive transport service between the accommodation and the airport.

No host on arrival

According to some reports, the hosts at this accommodation are often not present when the guests arrive to book in. There have been occasions when guests are left to book in on their own. It might be a good idea to ring just before you arrive.
