The room was very clean and the view included a huge maple tree that during my stay was gently raining its leaves on the front lawn. The customer service was outstanding. I would definitely stay longer next time.

It is a charming place. Extremely nice and we had the impression that the owners enjoy what they do. However, compared to other B&B we have seen it was ok but with a couple of downsides. The room we had was extremely tiny. So small that you could not open a big suitcase in it. The room itself was very...

We received a warm welcome from Monika and were very happy with our room in a quiet corner of the Inn. We thought it was wonderful not to be able to hear TV blaring from our neighbour's room - we chose to stay here because there are no TVs in the rooms (but there is one in the communal sitting...

You couldn't ask for a better location to explore Keji. The host were very nice and helpful , providing bag lunches and accommodating breakfast requests. The rooms are quite small and basic not much in the way of amenities and WiFi not great. However, for the price and location was worth the trade off.

We have stayed at the Whitman Inn several times while visiting Keji Park. If you are not into camping and you want to explore Keji this is a quiet, charming, restful way to do it as the park is only 4 km away. The hosts Monika & Herbert are friendly and accommodating. We found the meals to be good, especially...

From the exterior the Whitman is a place to love. Lovely porch to sit on with a late afternoon refreshment. Inside the rooms are bit below what we've experienced in other B&Bs. Rooms are comfortable and clean but no amenities -- like a sitting chair or a place to but your luggage. Wi-fi is very iffy.The owner (who is very...

The Whitman Inn is very conveniently located near Keji and definitely a good choice. Monika was a very kind host and always happy to help. Both breakfast and dinner (which are not included in the room rate) were yummy, and the rooms are simple, but nicely decorated. The wifi did not work in our room, but we had good access...

Monika of the Whitman Inn is very hospitable, even came out and brought your luggage to your room, very accommodating when my husband was unable to go up the stairs and let us stay in the honeymoon suite.

The location is excellent for Keji and the Inn keepers are very friendly and really helpful. The food was excellent - there was little choice but what there was was very well cooked. We had schnizel with potatoes and Blueberry pancakes for breakfast. Downside - The Inn is a little tired and run down, the rooms are small but very...
