The drive up the winding, climbing road to Strawberry Hill is itself an adventure. You keep thinking "aren't we there yet?" When you are there you know it. You're surrounded by a lush, mature garden with panoramic views of the Blue Mountain. I felt myself breathe deeper as I took it all in. This really is a spectacular view and... More

The hotel is beautiful. The villas are spacious and clean and have amazing views from the balcony. The only issue with the hotel is some services being over priced (restaurant reviewed separately). Breakfast is included being a muffin, jonny cake (a deep fried scone - very nice), and a slice of toast, coffee and OJ. This is actually fine but... More

Food was extremely expensive, not palatable and the service was lacking. The view is worth a visit, but paying $16.00 for a cup of coffee is a bit steep and not acceptable. The facility is a bit run down and ot up to the price value. Quiet and peaceful surroundings as one walks the property, but though far from the... More

“Nestled in” is the only way to describe this resort, high at the top of the Blue Mountains above Kingston. I wish we could give half-stars, as I would have subtracted the "Very" and rated Strawberry Hill "Good." Each of the cottages has a view of the city below, and beyond that, the ocean. Prepared to be spoiled with a... More

For anyone that loves music by The Beatles, the name Strawberry Hills is already appealing, but arriving to the place itself, high in the Blue Mountain of Kingston, is an experience closer to the Magical Mystery Tour. Surrounded by lush vegetation and very well kept gardens, this hotel and restaurant has a history: it was bought and built by Chris... More

My fiance and I spent two nights in the stunning Bamboo Villa (two storey villa, sleeps 4) just before NYE. The resort is a short 50 mins (vertical!) drive uphill from Kingston airport and is lusciously spread across greenland on the top of Blue Mountain - the view is worth every penny!We considered the helicopter trip from Kingston airport to...

The all you can eat brunch was OK which would have been fine had it not been so over the top expensive. And big whoop that the guy who owns it produced some decent music thirty years ago. Definitely a place to avoid whine it comes to the meals served.
