“Nice getaway in the city”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

This is one of my favorite attractions when I visit Kingston. Not just for the ice-cream but for the cozy atmosphere and beautiful surroundings. We usually go with family so my hubby and I have not enjoyed it as a couple as yet but I am sure it's a great spot for couples since every time we go the benches are lined with lovers. The House itself is a beautiful spot to take pictures, I have not yet had a tour of the inside, but would love to sometime. There are lots of shops that you can buy souvenirs and there is also a restaurant which I haven't visited either. All in all it's a nice place to get away from the hussle and bussle of the city, a definite stop at every visit to Kingston.

“Great Ice Cream”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Centrally located. A wide selection of Tasty flavors. There was a long line but worth the wait. The ambiance outdoors was great- there was outdoor seating to sit and enjoy the ice cream.

“Brilliant venue for a wedding!”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

We got married here (Devonshire Rooms) in December 2010 and all I can say it that it was a fantastic experience that even now people are still talk about it. Andre and the staff were fantastic and with our brilliant wedding planner Suzi ensured that our day was one of the most special memories ever. They created such an intimate setting you didn't realise that the rest of the activities of Devon House were going on. They even opened up the great house so I could get changed there. Highly recommended and such a change to have a destination wedding in such a historic setting rather than the usual resort hotels in Ochi, Montego Bay,Negril etc

The ice cream was great too - you must go there at least once when you are in Jamaica.

“A place to cuddle”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

I enjoyed the environment, the atmosphere was warm and friendly. The park was clean and I would say suited for lovers... This not quite the place for family picnics. It a nice place to stroll and spend quiet time with your lover.
