“Home Away from Home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I have been visiting Mandeville since 2007, and Golf View has been my home away from home. The rooms are Shabby Chic, beds comfortable, bathrooms spacious and clean. the hot water is a bit tricky - you have to let it run for a little before it gets very hot. You rarely have need for A/C in Mandeville as its best known by locals as "Cool Cool Mandeville", there are rooms with A/C and without - you need to specify what you need. The food at the inhouse restaurant is local cuisine ad delicious. From the gate to the room, all of the hotel employees are very friendly and willing to fulfill most requests. The family that owns the hotel are avid sport enthusiasts, and all of the sport channels are available. Transportation is available to and from airport - at a price. Tours can be arranged - I've not utilized this service as I prefer to rent a car and explore Jamaica on my own. Already planning my next visit.

Room Tip: No elevator available. If you have a lot of luggage, request a ground floor room. A/C is not standar...

For anyone doing business is the Mandeville area this is the place to stay. The management and staff are 1st class and are what this hotel is all about. Both my wife and I were very pleased with the service and curtious we were treated which were like being part of a family. The meals were delisious and well served with great local choices. It was a absolute pleasure to stay here. The only thing I would like to see added is an elevator which was not really a big deal for me but could be for a ailing person. With that being said, the staff were very helpful helping with our luggage.

Mandeville does not have a lot of choices of places to stay. The Golf View offers clean if dated rooms, free WiFi throughout, a resturaunt, and a very friendly and helpful staff. It is convienent to most everything in town. The rates are reasonable. There are meeting room facilities avalable if needed.

Room Tip: I prefer a room on the first floor as they do not have elevators and I hate to carry lugage up stair...

We stayed here for one night. The room was $85,- us but with taxes and all we had to pay $104,- which we thought was to much money for what you get. The room was dirty and the van made so much noise we had to turn it off when we went to bed. The location is good, you can walk to a restaurant or supermarket. We didn't stay for breakfast because the prices are silly high!

I have visited Jamaica many times. My last stay at the Golf View in Manchester was warm, quiet and relaxing. Most of the employees were friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious but expensive. I did not have an all inclusive. It is more economical to eat at local restaurants than at the hotel. It would be Fantastic if the hotel would put together a package deal. I stayed 10 days, visited the local sites and a beach in Kingston. For a relaxing, comfortable time..choose Golf View. We had a special gathering there and the decorators/decorations were awesome. The price for the hotel was reasonable. There was access to the internet in the computer room. Buy a Jamaican Phone and phone cards to keep in touch with family in the states.

Room Tip: View of pool area was great and close to the dining room.

i stayed at this hotel for a few days. when i ckecked in, one of the two people at the front desk was not very friendly and appears that she might be new as she was a bit confusing in checking me in.the rooms were not bad,they could use some window screen as mosquitos were everywhere...the house keeping departmen,the ground crew the security at the entrance were very friendly and helpful...the manager was quite friendly as well as the people in the resturant...you are walking distance to everything around town...I'll definetly stay there again !

This is my fourth visit to the Golf View Hotel in Mandeville. The staff have alwas been very helpful to me and even go out of their way to meet my needs. The rooms are clean, comfortable and quite, It is not a four star resort, but it is a nice retreat at the end of the day. The only comments that I would have about the place are the resturaunt seems to be very much on Island time (no hurry), and there seems to be some small issue with the room each time (which they resolve). All in all, I would stay here again.

Room Tip: A ground floor room keeps you from lugging your lugage up stairs as there is no elevator.
