The White House Hotel


The White House Hotel


The White House Hotel is a place of old-fashioned elegance set in beautiful gardens and is the only hotel on the island of Herm.


There are no TVs, clocks or radios in the rooms, reflecting the distance from modern life and the tranquil, gateway aspect of Herm. The Monks Bar is a great place for a drink; it also has a beautiful terrace that surrounds the outdoor swimming pool. The AA Two Rosettes restaurant has a fine dining set menu which changes daily, often including the local catch. Smart casual dress required. Beauty treatments are available in the privacy of guests’ rooms. This is a great spot for families, due to the safe environment, with an early dinner service and baby listening available. How about a spot of family tennis or croquet before choosing your favourite beach for a swim?

Well-furnished self-catering holiday cottages are also available, sleeping 2-7 people.


There are 40 ensuite rooms of different types, many differing in size. Cottage rooms have sea or garden views. Rooms in the main building are a little larger and most have a sea view. The Harbour Cottage is a large room with sitting area, larger bathroom and CD player. The Crow’s Nest has a glorious balcony with fabulous views and is very spacious.

How to get there

The only way to get to Herm is via Guernsey.

By Plane – The island of Guernsey can be reached with direct flights from most major regional airports flying with the following airlines Aurigny, Easyjet and Blue Islands. Flight time is as little as 45 minutes.

By Ferry – Condor Ferries operate a daily service throughout the year from Poole and Portsmouth to Guernsey. The fast ferry service from Poole takes approximately three hours whereas the conventional ferry from Portsmouth can take up to twelve hours. You can travel as foot passengers or take your vehicle on-board. You can even take your dog with you – they travel free in your vehicle or you will pay a small supplement as foot passengers.
For ease of travel, there really is no better way to get there. No luggage restrictions, easy check in and you sit back, relax and start your holiday as soon as you board. Seat upgrades are available.

Connecting to Herm – From Guernsey, Herm is just a 20 minute ferry crossing away. The Travel Trident Ferry operates daily with up to eight crossings a day in the mid and peak season months April, May, June, July, August and September and October.

In January and February there is a limited daily service, (except on a Sunday in January) departing early morning and returning late afternoon and an extra sailing is offered at midday on a Wednesday. In November, December and March there is no set timetable but services increase during winter promotions and the Christmas period. Please note that it is not possible to prebook the Travel Trident Ferry, clients will need to book and pay for tickets locally.

Top tips

  • Why not take the dinner boat on a Wednesday, Friday or Saturday to enjoy the island away from the crowds – make your dinner reservation direct with the White House Hotel or Mermaid Tavern and they will arrange the ferry for you.
  • The cottage rooms at the White House Hotel are a great option for budget conscious travelers year round. Make sure you book early to secure a room with sea view and balcony and take advantage of the almost un-interrupted sea views.

When To Go

Summer (June-August) – the island boasts some of the UK’s warmest weather and temperatures can reach a comfortable 21 degrees Celsius. This period is peak season and although the weather is favourable, costs and availability can be an issue.

Autumn (September-November) – September to mid-October can still attract some decent weather and it means you can enjoy the island when the tourists have all gone home. The sea temperatures tend to be at their warmest in September.

Winter (December-February) – Low Season. A season with unpredictable weather and very few tourists. Some properties, attractions and shops close during this period. That being said winter on Sark can still be enjoyable, with dramatic coastlines and cosy atmospheric pubs whilst taking advantage of the much lower prices at this time of year. However please bear in mind that travel to Herm at this time of the year can often be disrupted due to weather. This is also the best time for deserted beaches, coastal foraging, stormy photography and wild walks without another soul in sight.

Spring (March-May) – A lovely time to visit the island with spring flowers in bloom everywhere and the summer hoards of visitors have not yet arrived. Temperatures are starting to get balmy and a great time for walking the miles of nature trails on offer.
