“Cool and Quirky Night Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Take the night tour to experience the full story of the house and get an occasional fright. It's all good fun and the staff does an excellent job. The restoration of the house is amazing and it is a true bit of Jamacian history.

“What a wonderful place to go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

The visit at Rose Hall is worth every single moment and every single penny! Of course the house is not a English Heritage one but is very interesting to see, the grounds are beautiful, the view (if you forget about the highway!) is great. Our guide was very helpful and skilled and lovely and we did have a great day out. Looking at the house and the grounds and listening at the history you also get a very good insight at what slavery was.

“When sugar was king.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Rose Hall great house is a few miles east of Montego Bay. It was built out of the great wealth amassed out of the labour of the slaves who were the ancestors of most of the Jamaican people. The owners of the estates were fabulously rich and built mansions all over the island and also back in their homeland, England. Jamaica was one of the richest outposts of the mighty British Empire. Rose Hall has a dark legend of witchcraft and Annie Palmer, the mistress of the house, is said to have killed several husbands and is believed to still haunt the house. Take a trip to the great house. Perhaps Annie herself may greet you.

“crazy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

A very cool story of the area that all the locals say is true! The feeling is pretty eery in the house but I can't say I saw anything crazy. The house is lovely but I think I enjoyed hearing the story more.

“Haunted happening in Jamaica”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

A great night-time excursion for the family (but not if they are under 8,in my opinion). Both history and entertainment combined. Check it out!
