Our recent visit to Jamaica was amazing we travelled a lot and returned to Polkerris and it felt just like coming home,Jeremy and Clarissa are wonderful and could not do enough for us,providing us with a traditional English afternoon tea before we left.Our room was very comfortable with a great walk in wardrobe.The location was great and we felt completely safe at all times.The views were amazing and we made good use of the pool.All the staff were very polite and professional and we loved the two cats.We really hope to return to Polkerris and have already started to recommend it to our friends.

The location was perfect because it was quiet qnd restful but just a short walk away from everything else you might want to experience in Montego Bay. The views of the bay were spectacular and the accomodations were wonderful. Every comfort and need you may have was available and it felt like an incredible home away from home. Jeremy and Clarissa were charming hosts and breakfast was substantial and always delicious. The room, pool and common areas were lovely, well kept and spotless. My Jamaica vacation was amazing and my experience at Polkerris set the tone. I highly recommend Polkerris and am looking forward to a return visit in the near future!

Sincerely...Polkerris is perfect! Spotlessly clean, accommodating staff/owners, away from the hustle/bustle but still just a short walk to get there, amazing views and sunsets, delicious breakfast, and more! Jeremy and Clarissa were gracious hosts, even served us an early breakfast so we could catch our flight. Forget the resorts...stay somewhere special, where it feels like home. You will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: We stayed in the upstairs room with an ocean view. It was a large room with a full view of the ocea...

I'm not even sure where the AI resorts are in Mobay, but why stay there when you could be steps from the hip strip, in lovely accommodations, with heart-rending views of the water? Polkerris has all this and more. The inn is up the road from Margaritaville and it only takes about 5 minutes to walk down. It's also a 5 minute drive from the airport. Our room and the public spaces were beautiful and spotlessly clean. Our room was bright and cozy. The view of the bay...no words. I was too awestruck to take pictures, apparently, but I did nab one of the amazing sunset from the upstairs balcony. Our room was on the first floor. Jeremy & Clarissa were friendly and attentive. Breakfast was delicious! I had fruit to start and a vegan Jamaican breakfast after (ackee without fish, dumplings, green banana, yam) that I'm still thinking about. Yay Polkerris!

I was lucky enough to stay for 10 nights at this great B&B in Montego Bay in March 2012. Tucked away just off the hip strip this lovely house is a hidden gem. Great Breakfasts, very relaxing surroundings (including a pool you often have to yourself) and an amazing view overlooking Montego Bay. The owners, Jeremy & Clarrisa made me feel very welcome and were very helpful. The rest of the staff including Clover and Kevin were very nice. Two cute cats as well. I have great memories of staying here. If you want to escape the tentacles of the all inclusives and have a more authentic experience, I would recommend this great B&B.

Feb. 2012: The Polkerris is beautiful, clean, comfortable and very safe. The room was simply gorgeous, with a great view of the bay, and the bed super comfy. The pool is great, very clean and huge. Every morning we were treated to a sumptious breakfast. Jeremy and Clarrisa are really kind and personable; just great hosts. They treated us like family so we felt very relaxed and enjoyed their company. The staff is helpful and polite. We were close to the airport, beach, shops, and restaraunts. This was one of the nicest bed and breakfasts we have ever enjoyed! We can't wait to go back. We miss you Jeremy and Clarissa!

Room Tip: All the rooms have a beautiful view of the bay.
