“Pleasant Accomodation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Ridgeway was a shiny pin in an otherwise less than inspiring Montego Bay. The accomodation is satisfactory, clean, large and well equipped. The bed is not very large and the seating could be more comfortable. The aircon is also noisy but necessary. Mrs Williams who looked after the room did an excelent job and the owners were pleasant and collected us from the airport. The airport is a seven minute walk with no need for a taxi. The cafeteria next door belongs to the university and I was (culture) shocked to find curry chicken on the breakfast menu. Taxi fare to the (not so) Hip Strip is one US Dollar per person. Dont ask the prioce, just hand over the money. If you must go to Montego Bay don't overlook Ridgeway. On the basis that everything is overpriced in jamaica this guest house offers some level of value for money. Good hotels in the US are a lot less exopensive.

Ridgeway guest house is a great place to spend your vacation or your days away from home. It is affordable and quite comfortable. I love peace and quite and Ridgeway offers that and the room are really nice and clean. Colin is the best, he is very friendly and goes all out to make your stay an enjoyable one. Thanks again Colin and Sandra (housekeeper) and i'm sure that Ridgeway will be my first choice when i need that accommodation away from home. Have a great day!

Room Tip: Choose a room that is located away from stairwells, you have less traffic and disturbance.

Had a wonderful time at Ridgeway In March. Colin was a brilliant host. My room was clean and fresh all the time . Also Miss Williams helpful and friendly. I have found my home away from home. Will definitely stay again and again.

We found this hotel based upon recommendations from others. The reviews were all very positive and the location looked extremely convenient. LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION

Mr. Colin Tatem is a great Hotelier. He embodies the essence of Jamaican Hospitality. The location of this place makes for a very short trip to and from the Airport, especially with the personalized service that is offered by the Hotel. SERVICE SERVICE SERVICE

Trips to and from town were also very convenient, once you become familiar with the transportation system.

We were very glad that we chose the Ridgeway Guest House, and we will be definitely returning to this hotel the next time that we come to Jamaica. HOSPITALITY HOSPITALITY HOSPITALITY

It is not fancy, but it fit our needs perfectly. Great Value!

In addition, I feel like I have a friend for life.

Recently stayed here and the place is clean and tidy. The staff is awesome especially Colin. The hotel is conveniently located in front of the airport and is accessible to public and private transportation. The grounds well maintained and fill with many exotic and rare vegetation all around. Reminds me of the historic great houses in the rolling hills of Georgia . Many more returns!

Spent 2 weeks at Highpoint doing some mission work and stayed the last night before we flew out in Montego Bay. We had chosen Ridgeway due to the comments on here and we were not disappointed. Colin Tatum is the real deal. He took care of us from the get go. Colin offered to take us to the strip and even recommended a restaurant he thought that we would like.

On the way he asked if we wanted to go on with him further downtown while he stopped by to see his accountant. We were not all that hungry yet so we went with him. He gave us a tour and told us many things about the area and then took us to the restaurant. We had a 4 pm flight the next day and he offered to let us stay until 2 pm at the hotel as he had no one else coming in. At the alloted time he came by the room and took us to the airport. What a great experience for a first time visitor to Jamaica......Colin Tatum, you are a Rock Star and thank you so much.
