We went on the 'after dark' tour of Rose Hall. I would describe it as a scary historic tour; to say to much more would spoil the surprises that await you on this tour. We were told to bring our cameras, but couldn't use them.......as no photography is allowed on the night tours. That was OK, as camera flashes would... More

The night tour of the great house was incredible. It is half haunted house, half historic tour. Be prepared to be scared, a lot. There were young children on our tour and they did not enjoy it. Good for teens and up. Explores adult themes of slavery and torture. A unique experience to be sure.

Fantastic place to see. We went in the middle of a carribean storm, with thunder lightening and the rain added to the atmosphere. A must see

Rose Hall is an exceptional restoration of one of the few remaining "great houses" on Jamaica. Build in 1770 it was purchased as a ruin in 1964 and restored. The price of admission includes a rather quick tour through the house. The guide provides a brief history of the house and identifies selected pieces of art and furniture original to... More

We decided to check out the Great House one night and I'm glad we did. The house itself is beautiful and the restoration work was well done. It gives you a decent understanding of what life was like back then. It is of course also 'haunted'. You have to go in knowing there will be a little bit of cheesy... More

Great place to learn about Jamaica's dark history. Overall, a good stop to make while on the island.

We did the tour during the day, I think if we did it in the evening it would add to the atmosphere of the house but with it being daylight we got to appreciate the views and the beautiful grounds. There were only me and my partner on our tour so it was easy to get into the rooms and... More

Visited the Great House of Rose Hall today while staying at the Royalton white sands, Trelawney. The journey time is about half an hour each way from RWS, we were quoted $60 for a taxi from the hotel. We decided to ask one of the locals from the beach shops next to the hotel to take us there. David took... More
