The Whitman Inn

Reviewed July 20, 2011

The apartment has a full kitchen, and was very nice for our family. The hostess was congenial and helpful. The Whitman Inn provides an excellent value, and the location (close to Keji) is ideal. We never used the pool, but had great fun in the game room.

When we arrived at 1pm, nobody was ready in the Inn. We got the statement, that normally, nobody arrives that early... the only reason, we arrived that early, was to get some information about the park; unfortunately, there were no infos around. The host was not interested in informing us and only referred to national park office (10km down the street)...

Other that expected (and written on their website: "We pack picnic lunches for our guests and will arrange canoe and bicycle rentals"), they are not offering canoes, no breakfast included, nothing. No recommendations, just everything to do on our own... they just offer the room; no services beside. The expensive dinner in the evening was ok, average.

The last day was the lowlight, finally. When we arrived in the morning for breakfast (which was not even included in the price), they've just told us, that it's not economical for them to open the kitchen for just a few guests... there would be a place some 10kms down the road for getting some... I've really never seen such a behaviour before... :-((((

We left the Inn in a very disappointed mood; never ever in Whitman Inn!!! Unfortunately, they know about the fact, that there is very few accomodation around the area of Kejimkujik National Park... probably no reason to improve... next time, I would rather bring my tent...

Stayed at Whitman Inn for three nights in the two bedroom self catering apartment.
Great service, tasty meals in the small restaurant the owners run between 6 and 8 pm; the haddock was particulary memorable. Very quiet place, clean and friendly. The appartment itself is functional, but don't expect anything great -- it is quite small and not intended for a prolonged stay inside. The covered deck is very handy for an evening with a glass of wine. Small indoor pool (but not smaller than in some of the Marriott Residence Inns), ping pong table and billiard table in the TV lounge are good for rainy days. No TV, A/C and phone in the appartment though. Sleeman, the owners cat, is a wonderful creature.

4km to the Kejimkujik's gates is unbeatable for outdoor enthusiasts who don't like to stay on camping grounds.

First time at the Whitman Inn and was very satisfied with all aspects of the two night stay.

Very tidy room with private bath room (no tub just a shower in my room although they have tubs in other rooms) Comfortable beds/ bedding.
No A/C but a fan was sufficient.

Large games room with Satelltie TV, Good size indoor pool and sauna built on to the back of the Inn.

Ate in the dining room both nights with both meals being very good. BBQ steak one night and fresh haddock the next. Breakfasts were also good and well priced.

If hiking in the national park a few KM's down the road, they will make you a box lunch for $8-$10 which was also good value.

Located in the country so it was nice and quiet while sitting on the big wrap around porch enjoying a drink.

With all of the above plus very friendly staff what more could you want.
