This hotel has seen far better days. The rooms are dirty, the pool too but the views are magnificient. Don't speak about the kitchen..

I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. The owner is friendly but for a great view it's a lot of money.

Our stay at Shafston is a list of great memories. Frank and his team welcome you at any time (we arrived at 1am). We enjoyed everything in the Great house and the surroundings. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. There are plenty of places to relax: the pool room, the bar, the Jacuzzi, the swimming pool, the wrap-around porch. Watching the beautiful sunset while sipping a cocktail in the Jacuzzi is a must! Actually, the views from anywhere in the Great House are stunning all day and you can enjoy them from a deck chair or from one of the many hammocks. You can help yourself at the bar which is open 24 hours. Our kids, 13, 15, 16 and 18, enjoyed it so much they want to go back any time. Food is homemade and excellent and Kim can cook your choice of breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Blue Mountain coffee is freshly brewed every morning and we loved it.
Above all, the friendly, family team sets the House apart from other Great Houses and certainly beats any all-inclusive resorts in the Island. Shafston is also located away from the mainstream resorts allowing a real visit to the island, its people. It is also situated 5 minutes from beautiful beaches and Frank will happily drive you. Frank will provide any advice and information about Jamaica, its history and places to visit. Of course, the House itself is a piece of history, dating from the 1700’s, featuring century old trees and its own, detached graveyard!
There is a plan to have a zip line that will be the longest and most exciting in Jamaica.
