What is there left to say but; prepare for a treat. My husband and I have stayed at this hotel on several occassions and have never been disappointed. Mr. & Mrs. Bent and staff, did everything to ensure our comfort, making make this hotel our first choice whenever we return to Kingston.
We stayed in the large luxurious St. Andrew Suite, with spectactual views of both Kington and mountains from our verandah. The spa-like bath tub and the comfortable bed is all we needed for a good night's sleep.
Breakfast is typically Jamaician, (ackee & saltfish, calaloo & dumplings). For the light-eater, they also offer fresh fruits. Though breakfast can be served from your room, we always choose to have it on the gazebo which is surrouned by beautiful plants and colorful flowers and a panoramic view of Kingston.
We were fortunate to be able to attend their first 1st Evening Under the Stars gala. While having dinner, we were entertained with the music of acclaimed artists who performed generes from reggae to jazz to blues. It was nice change not to have to drive into Kingston for entertainment. It was expecially nice hanging with the locals from the surronding community of Smokey Vale. They expect to continue this event once a month so be sure to check their website.
The worst part of our visits to City View is having to leave.
