may be a 3.5 after $$$$$$ spent

Posted 25-Jan-2016
Pros: location, view they did accomodate very early check-in, 9 am
Cons: most everything, need hot water, phone service, MUCH better food service.
Location: Walk to best seafood rest. on island...some historic sites nearby. NOT good for business (which is why I was there) due to long drive to downtown busi
Room was nicely updated with newer furniture in colonial style like the building which is an "historic" bldg. needs a lot of work overall. 1st morning there was NO water for shower! next two mornings, NO HOT water...I read this is common. Breakfast was a nightmare..(British influence uncooked bacon!)..cold pancakes no butter, pineapple with zero taste, next morning, Jamaican food that I can't eat for breakfast. coffee was very good! great location, marina, bay views, near Glorias' that is top notch seafood restaurant. Food service at hotel needs a Lotttt of improvement. no snacks except hot food from bar/grill. phone in room Never worked during stay.

two overnight stays

Posted 24-Jan-2016
Pros: One of the bartenders, Milton, was very friendly, and made me feel like I was really in Jamaica and that it was a special place. On the water.
Cons: The security of the rooms, the temperature of the hot water, phones in the rooms that work, and a shuttle to the airport that is free.
Location: Great view of Kingston and on the water. Not good for swimming there. $15 to go by boat to a key nearby for swimming. Not much nearby,ok for 1nite
Don't expect a typical hotel stay here. There will be something not working in the room. The door had a knob that rattled in and out and I was unsure of the security on my room. The chain was broken.The shower water was not hot...luke warm at best. The phones in the rooms don't work. The wifi is working only part of the time. On the positive side...The rooms are huge and clean...about 3 times the size of a typical hotel room. The staff is very layed back and friendly,and don't get upset about all the deficiencies.

Nicely renovated hotel with colonial style.

Pros: Quiet setting, away from the bustle of Kingston. Good value for the price.
Very few guests, nice staff. Surprisingly relaxed and comfortable for the price level.

A pleasant surprise!

Posted 06-Jan-2016
Pros: It had a good scenery and wasn't crowded with guests.
Cons: Their breakfast service as food/serving seems limited. If you venture to the area closer to 10am you may have to go without breakfast.
Location: Great location! You have Gloria's Seafood 1 minute away which gives you dinner options outside the hotel.
I must say overall my experience was a pleasant surprise. My stay was relaxing and comfortable at an affordable cost. I was surprised that they still had vacancy. The staff was willing to assist us with any challenges we had and that made all the difference.

Nice getaway experience

Posted 31-Dec-2015
For the price I got thru Expedia, I felt it was a good enough deal. The property had an old rustic feel to it with the brick and mortar walls still erect and the old ships moored in right at edge of the marina. Drawbacks were the lack of hot water in the room, a murky swimming pool and lukewarm breakfast. The water by the marina looked like it would mutate you if a drop touched your skin. I'd still go back because of the price and location.

Save up some more, Go somewhere else

Posted 30-Dec-2015
This hotel/hostel was below the low expectations I had already have for this place. My wife and I spent 3 nights here and 2 nights out of the 3 we were ridiculously sick. Nothing that was advertised was given . DO NOT GO HERE... Save up and go somewhere else, Anywhere but here.

The hotel ambiance is great!

Posted 24-Dec-2015
The hotel has a lot of character and is beautiful inside. It looks like they are still remodeling some of the room spaces so I can't wait to see how it progresses. It's also great if you want to see some of the history or Jamaica. Rooms were comfortable and spacious.

Hotel in Port Royal

Posted 01-Dec-2015
The Hotel needs to remove the old broken/burnt boat from the water. Phone did not work in the room. The site states free wifi but there is no wifi in the rooms and the wifi in the lobby was unreliable. Kitchen did not have items on the menu available. I would recommend that the Hotel ensures that each room is supplied with: Safe Iron The room had a coffee machine but there was no outlet near the table and I therefore had to put the machine on the floor in order to use it.
