I recently stayed at the Altamont Court Hotel. What a huge disappointment. The pictures are exaggerated. The only accurate picture is the hotel sign. Breakfast was mediocre. Servings were stingy. The stewed chicken and dumplings were delicious however. Décor needs upgrading. This is more of a motel rather than hotel and extremely overpriced. Spanish Court Hotel is the place to... More

Having read some of the previous reviews I had to smile at some of the comments about the difficulties/deficiences people are reporting at the Altamont Court. We are a Canadian couple in our 60s who have been spending half of the year in Montego Bay for a number of years, so we're somewhat accustomed to the quirkiness of Jamaican life.... More

I just spent six days this past week (August 26-September 1, 2013) for my birthday and I must say that I was very disappointed. One would think that at $137 per night a hotel room that is called the Executive room would have the basic amenities, i.e., a clock radio, and a refrigerator. I found out on their website that...

We thank this guest for taking the time to report the anomalies described in letter. We are in the process of equipping all rooms with fridges but in the meantime have some on standby that we provide to satisfy any such request(s). The noise that the guest reports as coming from the in room refrigerator was actually that of a... More

I had a wedding ceremony and reception here and the staff really blew my mind away with their friendliness and accommodative spirit. I was not very decisive and this event was planned in a very short time but the execution of this day's events were almost perfect. Any issue I had was dealt with very quickly. Any issues my guests... More

I stayed at the Altamont for a 12 day business trip. I was confident that the hotel would be a good choice, but I have to say that I'm confused about the contrast of the good and bad things happening at this hotel. I must say that I still don't know why this hotel was rated so well. The good:... More

We thank this guest for the compliments on our rooms and general appearance of the grounds. I have noted the complaints about service in the restaurant. I hope this guest will acknowledge that problems and issues particularly in a hotel setting are mostly a snapshot in time (unless of course the same negative comments/complaints are often repeated).

I stayed at the Altamont a year and a half ago and really liked it. I just stayed here again for four nights this time. I noticed certain upgrades in the room. The bathroom had new tile work, the large flat screen TV with lots of channels was good and the in-room safe with personal combination seemed new too. I... More

After my last review, I must say the management of the Altamont Court Hotel have redeemed themselves with me. We were pleased with the compensation provided by management in response to my last reservation mishap. I would like to publicly thank Mr. Chris Jarrett. We stayed May 25-27, 2013, with no complaints. The complimentary breakfast was great (and this was... More

In April of this year my husband and I stayed at Altamont Court and we had a wonderful time. Our room was nicely arranged (romantic setting) and the staff was very warm and friendly. We had a great time and would definitely return. It is a nice get-away in the heart of New Kingston!
