This was a treat for my Son and Granddaughter on their first trip to Jamaica. My stay at City View in comparison to the other hotels around the island was excellent! Both Management and staff were approachable and very helpful, in the simplest of things. If you're looking for a hotel to stay with top notch amenities, this is not... More

My fiance and I stayed at City View Hotel for 2 nights while on a 10 day vacation to Jamaica. We arrived there at the tail end of our trip and from the moment that we arrived, we were greeted with kindness, respect and the best service we could ask for. I mentioned wanting to find chocolate tea when we... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the City View Hotel and were pleasantly surprised by what we found. After having traveled around the island for a week or so, I was already getting used to the generally lackluster service provided by the hotels and guesthouses we had been staying in. It was such a relief to find a place... More

I recently stayed at City View and it was more than perfect. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and portrayed professionalism is every way. Special thanks to Sandy our waitress, who went the extra mile in ensuring that my needs were catered to as we had some special requests. The food was absolutely tasty and the decor was... More

these comments are for the owners to improve the facilities. More awnings were needed for shade from the midday sun. The space could not accomodate the wedding guests easily and it was difficult to see the head table. The wedding party was cramped and staff did not clear up and move the furniture quickly for dancing. The cake was cotched... More

My Fiance and I stayed at City View Hotel on Manning Hill Road and we had a wonderful experience. The shimmering lights of Kingston was the perfect backdrop for me to "pop the big question." The Lobster dinner was succulent and well served, and the breakfast was delicious.. All in all; a great place to spend some time with the... More

I had my wedding at City View on the 16/09/12 and everything was perfect, even the weather. It poured, but that didn't stop the fun. Mrs. Bent ensured that everything was organised. Of course my guests were captivated by the scenery. The girls and I stayed the night before the wedding, very peaceful. Breakfast was heavenly. Sandy was great. All... More
