Hotel Mocking Bird Hill has pleasantly decorated garden view (US$195/255 low/high season) and sea view (US$235/295 low/high season) rooms with ceiling fans and mosquito nets. Wireless Internet is available in the lounge, where a computer is set up for guest use. Solar hot-water systems, locally minded purchasing practices, and minimal-waste policies have earned Mocking Bird Hill eco-friendly merits. With stunning views of both the Blue Mountains and Portland’s coast, it’s hard not to love the place. The owners, Barbara Walker and Shireen Aga, keep several large dogs that can often be seen tagging along behind the innkeepers. The hotel is closed every year in September for maintenance. To get to the hotel, take a right immediately after Jamaica Palace and climb for about 200 meters. The entrance will be on your left.
