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... More

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... More

Whitfield Hall is full of history. It is quaint and lovely. Everton will make you feel at home. The coffee they make at the estate is amazing. The food is very very good. It might not be luxurious but is extremely comfortable and homely. Must stay if you're in Jamaica.

We were lucky enough to stay at Whitfield Hall on Tuesday 21 January, Roydell picked us up in the Land Rover (we travelled in the back, great fun and met some of the very lovely local people who also got lifts) from Mavis Bank and were welcomed by Everton. Beautiful place with lots of history and character, we loved the... More

We stayed here for one night to do the 2am hike up the blue mountain peak. The road up the hall is quite bumpy, but no worse than what I have seen in India. Whitfield hall was very simple and comfortable and perfect for our needs. We had dinner and breakfast (they cooked cabbage for me separately since I am... More

Whitfield Hall is a must do if you hike the peak but it is also an awesome place to get out of the Jamaica Rat Race while on the island. No hustling or hassling just peace and quiet. Talk about a cup of Jamaican Coffee, it doesn't get any better than Whitfield Hall. Rustic to say the least so if... More

My recommendation on this property is to triple check your reservation and call before you leave to drive up. Communication and organisation is not their strong suit. They are geared for single night stays that are only intended to be a starting point for the hike up to the peak. My Husband and I stayed with a friend at Whitfield... More

I stayed at Whitfield Hall overnight as I planned to hike to the peak of the Blue Mountains. It was about a 3 hour drive from Kingston. The drive there is not for the faint at heart, very bumpy and extremely narrow at times. The lodge itself is no frills - no electricity, no hot water. The rooms were clean,... More

We stayed at Whitfield Hall Hostel as part of our tour via Sun Venture Tours to hike the Blue Mountain Easter weekend 2012. It took roughly 2/1/2 hours to get there from New Kingston and what a bumpy ride! It really is a place of beautiful solitude. Peaceful environment, that offers a sense of calm. Love the huge Eucalyptus trees... More
