We stayed here as it was a very close to the Blue Mountains and we wanted to hike to the top of the mountain to watch the sun rise. The accommodations were very affordable and the hostal was very quaint. There was no electricity but there was a nice fireplace and the man in charge of cooking and cleaning was...

No electricity -light and heat with kerosene. Hard to reach without hiking of using a Land Rover. But worth the trip. Great food in this old army barracks. Definitely a unique place to stay. Not luxurious by any means but a great place to stay mid-hike to make it to the Blue Mountain peak.

We spent two nights at Whitfield Hall in April 2015. We actually like the place but did not care for the lack of warm water for showering, or the poor plumbing. We loved the cool, fresh mountain air, the beautiful views and the old rustic accommodations. Lack of electricity, and television was not a problem for us but we did...

This is one of the best places to stay in the Blue Mountains. It's rustic in that there is no electricity or hot water. But don't be turned away, this authentic hostel offers beautiful views, access to hike Blue Mtn. Peak, farm to table meals and all of the wonderful hospitality of Jamaicans.

We loved Whitfield Hall (with the one exception that the shower didn't seem to work). Everton and the rest of the staff were very friendly and made delicious food (especially breakfast which I will remember as the best I had in Jamaica). Hotel pick up was efficient, grounds and communal areas are really nice. Stayed in the Colonel Whitfield room...

We only stayed one night but had a great time. Upon arrival we were simply shown our room and told to make ourselves comfortable. We brought dinner with us and ate on their picnic tables outside while watching a beautiful sunset surrounding by huge Eucalyptus trees. They also give you the option of ordering dinner for them for a small...

Spent a night here. Tons of character. Beds in attic were fun. Getting there is an adventure and great access to Blue Mountain. Rode our bikes to the top then blasted down back to the Lodge. Hella fun. Reminded me of camp. Bring some warmish clothes. Gets cold up there.

If you are planning to hike to the Blue Mountain Peak, well this place is perfect. To get there, you have to go to Mavis Bank, with your car or taxi. before this, ask for a pick up from there, Whitfield will send you a driver. We had Roydel, very nice guy. don't go with your own car even if...

We stayed here after hiking up to the peak for the sunrise. It was just what we wanted - a beautiful place to relax, see the process and taste Blue Mountain Coffee, eat great food, and have a good rest. Everton made us feel at home and Rasta (nickname) gave us a tour of their tiny coffee production, of which...
