First of all WOW !! I've always dreamed of owning a place like this. Not to big so that it can be enjoyed. The owners are there but do there own thing, if they are not around Marcia or other staff are. You don't really need anything from them as you come & go as you please. Top notch security.... More

The owners of Polkerris are very lovely and welcoming. They also use a regular driver, Robert, who can arrange just about anything for you! The rooms are clean, and breakfast is very good, with a choice between traditional Jamaican or American style. The pool is lovely. We stayed for two nights before prior reservations at a resort nearby, and I... More

I have to first start by thanking Peter, his wife & team of superstars for looking after us so well in the run up to my wedding. I got married on the 9th August, 45 minutes from Montego bay and stayed for one week prior. I booked with Peter (over email) in late 2013, and planned a vacation from London... More

I stayed at the Polkerris for 1 week whilst attending a wedding in Montego Bay (9th Aug 2014). I have to say this B&B was fantastic. In addition to the cleanliness, affordability, great facilities and room size the staff could not have treated us better. The owner became a friend for the entirety of the stay and went out of...

This B&B came highly recommended by friends who stayed in Dec 2013. My husband, grandson and I stayed for 6 days at this "home away from home" and we were not disappointed. What first impressed us was how spotlessly clean the place was. We received a warm welcome and were ushered to our secure and comfortable room. We were taken... More

I stayed at the Polkerris July 2014 for 4 nights. The hosts are very gracious and friendly. Marcia is an amazing cook and accommodated my vegetarian needs for the mouth-watering breakfasts that are served at this villa. The grounds are immaculately maintained. The steps down to the Hip Strip is a huge convenience. The place itself is quiet and had... More

I recently stayed at the Polkerris B&B in Montego Bay and it was wonderful. First things first the hospitality was excellent! Probably the best i've ever experienced at a hotel. Everyone was pleasant and happy to be there, and very welcoming. The pictures are good, but it looks so much better in person, and I really liked the technology used... More

I had the pleasure to stay at the Polkerris Bed and Breakfast in MoBay recently. It's like being in Paradise. My 21 year old daughter was suspect with staying at a bed and breakfast but quickly changed her mind when we arrived. Jeremey and the beautiful staff made us feel like family. We had a choice of American vs. Jamaican... More

We stayed here for five days in July 2104 to celebrate our 20-year anniversary, and it was wonderful. The breakfasts were delicious with fresh local fruit and a choice of Jamaican or International fare. It's literally steps a way from the hip strip and local beaches, and you can get Robert to drive you anywhere you want to go at... More

If you're looking for a bed and breakfast (or ANY small/quiet hotel, for that matter) in the center of Montego Bay, you can stop reading about other options. This is it. Book it. Since everything that has been written is true, there's no need for me to repeat everyone else and talk about how great it is (one of the... More
