“Lost property Not handed in by hotel staff”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

I was a guest at my nephew's wedding on 9th March 2013. My camera with all my wedding photographs (approx 85) was left behind and it was not until I got back to my parents home in Mandeville that I realised I had left it behind. I rang the hotel at approx. 7.30am on the 10th March 2013 explaining what had happed. After speaking to one of the hotel receptionist she informed me that she would update me, but she did not. I rang again after an hour and a half only to be told by another receptionist that the camera had not handed in. It is to my belief that one of the service staff at the wedding reception picked up my camera and did not hand it in to lost and found. Be very careful of your belongings at this hotel as this could happen to you as not all the staff are honest.

Great customer service!
Wonderful staff.
Nice Pool.
Good bar.
Breakfast buffett needs more variety.
Wii-Fii in the guest rooms is not consistant.
Dinner was in hotel was expensive. Better to eat off the hotel property.

I could not fault this hotel really. It is clean modern with all the facilities of a good hotel. Service was generally good throughout. Staff were competent and always ready to help. Wireless internet is available throughout. The signal is marginal in some rooms, but there are also wired connections in the rooms.

The hotel has a perfectly acceptable swimming pool. Certainly well above average for a city centre hotel. The restaurant served good food, although the menu is a little limited of you are staying on a long business trip as I was.

All in all, I would be very happy to stay again.

This is a hotel in the heart of the uptown business district, New Kingston. It is fairly standard but on well-kept grounds. The room I stayed in was a standard on, a bit on the small side but comfortable enough. The food is reasonably good but there are other nearby eating places anyway. I didn't have any complaints.

The Knutsford was conveniently located in the heart of new Kingston. The staff were courteous and friendly. The complimentary continental breakfast was delicious and handy before dashing off to meetings in the morning. My only gripe was with the internet, which could be unreliable at times due to a weak signal.

As a first time guest to the hotel I think the front desk staff needs to educate the guest about a few things that might help to improve the stay. Such as where not to place your room key card so as not to deactivate the strip. How to access the rooms by the pool area if it is raining so as to avoid from getting wet. Two other points to note... The wifi service is very weak as I constantly had to open my window and stuck my hand outside for my ipad to pick up. Hotel staff would walk right pass me while I am holding my sleeping baby with bags in hand and trying to access the main door. Overall despite these things my stay was a good one.

Comfortable stay, courteious staff, housekeeping very friendly and made sure I was happy. If you want to enjoy a great breakfast they serve a good one that is included with the room, continental, fresh and good service by the waitress clearing the table. Wish I could have stayed longer to enjoy more of the amentities, was a relaxing stay.

Room Tip: Get the standard room, not a big difference in the supreme room if you ask me for value, plus the st...
