I stayed here based on the posted reviews and, as a result, I am really starting to doubt what I read on Trip Advisor. This is an old, run down hotel in the residential part of Kingston not conveniently located to any museums, restaurants, cultural attractions, parks, etc. The rooms are very dark and the furniture is at least 20...

The staff were very friendly and willing to cater to your needs. The property was filled with so many antiques and memorabilias it was like if I was passing through several decades in one trip. The atmosphere is quiet and cozy and the sleep quality is off the chain. If you want somewhere to rest, this is the place. My... More

This is a very nice plantation islander Inn. Gated, safe, with lush gardens, full of island antiques decor, water fountains, nice but limited bar and restaurant, make this hotel a very nice place to relax and rest. Rate is very good the services. Enjoy Jamiaca
