As we were staying for 3 nights at Bedugul for the first time I did my research on TA and eventually picked Strawberry Hills. We loved it. Very peaceful location despite a busy road going past and some roadworks nearby, Lovely architecture and gardens, rows of strawberries and views to the mountains. Staff were very friendly and we negotiated language barriers really well. Location is a little isolated but a free shuttle service takes you to Botanic gardens Bratan lake and temple and Candykuning market (all worth seeing). Only problem is wi fi was down for 2 days and I get the impression this is a regular problem here. If this problem can be fixed this would be an ideal accommodation to keep returning to. Loved the old but charming restaurant with bar, pool table and darts.

Very sorry about the wifi, Unfortunately we are in the hands of our provider and there is no choice this far from more developed parts of Bali. Thank you for your kind words about everything else.

We spent a night at this hotel. The room was clean and compact. The bathroom had a large soaking tub and a high shower for all of you taller guys/girls. One issue was an inability to access the wifi in the room. This was quickly resolved when the front desk staff restarted the internet router. We also had an issue with the safe. It was locked and the front desk staff didnt have the key. Apparently only the manager (who was not on site) had the key to the safe.

The best part of this hotel was the restaurant. The smell was a bit musty, however the warm fire,superb staff and excellent meal was worth it. In our 8 days of touring Bali, this is the second time the group ate such a delicious and extended meal.

As for the earthquakes, we initially thought someone was knocking at the door in the middle of the night. However when the bed started to move, we quickly realized that it was an earthquake x 3.

Oh yes, no pool, no heating (and it's cold here....we slept with a hotel provided hot water bottle at our feet).

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. Thanks for appreciating several of our attributes, including the hot water bottle - wifi routers do unfortunately need re-booting now and again, and someone has to be the first to report this. We're sorry about the safe box being locked - this should have been noted and corrected when the room was cleaned. Musty smells are hard to eliminate totally, when we have such a rainy mountain climate - each room now has its own dehumidifying machine, but the restaurant does not usually have the problem, with the warm fire etc..

Earthquakes are beyond our control, and we hope they didn't influence the rating given!

Nice cottages just in front of green garden. Private because not so many cottages. Good room design, breakfast at room , nasi goreng menu at cold weather. Clean and green view surrounding. Alternative to stay at bedugul

I love it here, and have been straying regularly for some years, a couple of trips each year, and am allocated the same cabin.

First impressions of Strawberry Hill are almost overwhelming, beautiful traditional architecture, with a modern touch in places, and magnificent gardens, and impressive entry gates to the cabins.

Each cabin is freestanding, named after an Indonesian mountain, surrounded by gardens with a small balcony, well appointed, a wall safe, coffee and tea facilities, reliable WiFi. There are no airconditioners, and not required at 4000+ feet elevation where maximum day temperatures are about 23C with nights very cool.

There is plenty of parking available for cars and motorcycles.

The hotel is located in a hairpin bend, and some people say it's noisy, but even as a light sleeper, I've never found it so.

Breakfast is plentiful and tasty, served either in the restaurant or on your balcony. The restaurant has a good lunch and dinner menu, and prices are reasonable.

Lake Bratan is only a short walk, and more extensive walks into the mountains can be undertaken.

Strawberry Hill is owned by the legendary Poppies of Kuta, and the same high standard is evident here. Staff are helpful and friendly.

I recommend Strawberry Hill to travelers, as an ideal overnight stop on the road north to Lovina, or just for a few days to chill out (no pun intended) in the cool mountain air.

I look forward to my next stay in # 25, Batukaru in a few months.
