small clean rooms
European/ American standard
many business people stay there
huge breakfast buffet with some local dishes
large pool in courtyard
not so far to walk from Emancipation Park
safe area - but you need to take a taxi ride of 15 Minutes from Downtown

staff friendly and rooms nice and clean, disappointed with a few things
no maps of the area was told to look on internet!
no pool towels
and after a 12 day stay the hotel could not give me a late check out or an alternative room - this was a real problem as we were not due to leave until early evening. I along with many other guest just had to sit around for a few hours with our luggage.
really not good enough for a 4* hotel.

Room Tip: superior rooms in the main building are shaded from the afternoon sun and therefore cooler

I just spent a week there for business and the location is reasonable if you're in town for business. Rooms were kept clean but facility is a bit tired. Water pressure in rooms unbelievably slow. All aspects of the property were kept clean and pool in good shape. Other than a select few, the service was okay and no more than that. Monique at reception, Terrence in dining room and Dwayne in the bar were all good but many others need training. Give yourself an hour or two if you're going to dinner on site regardless if it's busy or not. Overall it's an okay place and best part is that it's kept very clean but service and swag a bit below average.

Room Tip: rooms facing pool are relatively quiet with small balcony to stand out but not big enough to sit.\

Nice hotel in a very special city, Kingston. The hotel is in the best part of the city. Kingston was a disappointment, could have been Africa ...... Do not leave the Hotel after dark.... Back to the hotel, it was really nice a up to date. Nice food, nice pool, nice room and so on...

The rooms were clean and quiet. We even had a microwave, sink and refrigerator (unstocked) in our room. The pool was clean and the food was good. The staff were amazing! This is not a resort, so there was no entertainment, but it didn't cost us a bundle either. It was centrally located and we could walk to Freedom Park and the Pegasus hotel, past some of the larger businesses (J.Wray and Nephew), churches and very near to the British High Commission and the Canadian High Commission.

Traveling on business you want a good night's sleep, and wifi. I got neither. Tile floors, hard wood, and no sound proofing, and very loose fitting door, I heard every sound in the hotel, all night long and didn't get a wink of sleep.
Then, when I went to check my emails in the am, they told me they always cut off wifi for your room at 12:01 AM. so, I only had wifi from checkin (6pm) till 12:01 am. 6 hours.
Shower was pitiful. bad water pressure, can't even keep you damp.

Room Tip: my 4th trip to jamaica, 2nd at this hotel. try another hotel.

My travelling group booked into another New Kingston Hotel but I balked at the price. The Knutsford court was reccomended by a friend and it was the best week I have had in a long time. The service was excellent. Check in was a breeze and the standard room with breakfast included, was very clean and spacious. The room was cleaned every and new towels laid out. The breakfast was not the best. As a Jamaican I expected a little better quality food, but the overall experience made up for that little annoyance. I plan to make it my Kingston destination from now on. Thanks Knutsford for making me feel at home.

Room Tip: Ask for a room over looking the parking lot. It was very quiet.
