We knew we were in good hands from the moment Colin, owner of Ridgeway, picked us up from Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay. Colin patiently provided the answers to our many questions about Jamaica's attractions and getting around the island. A car rental was available on the premises which was very convenient. Whenever possible, Colin gave us rides to...

Just got back from a 1 night stay. Very basic but very clean rooms. 3 minute drive to airport. Colin drove us everywhere we needed to go, knocked on our door at 4 am to make sure we were awake, then drove us to the airport at 4:30 am. The property doesn't have much for amenities, but Colin does everything...

I am a 21 year old male and I have never left Canada in my entire life. I went to Jamaica with nothing arranged and nothing planned. With the stroke of luck I found the Ridgeway guest house where I met Colin Tatem the owner. He offered me the most exceptional price, clean and air conditioned room, where I stayed...

We stayed at Ridgeway Guest House a couple of years ago, but I still remember how much we appreciated Colin's hospitality. We were relatively young when we made our trip to Jamaica and didn't really have any plan on what to do when we got there. Colin gave us advice and things to see and do, as well as places...

We loved our stay here it was a while ago but it is still fresh in my mind. Dont let the locals fool you, you can walk from the Airport to the guest house, or if your on top of things have Collin pick you up. He is a wonderful man, he showed us around the night we arrived in...

I just read Sailorman51's review from September 2007 and was reminded of how wonderfully Colin treated me back in January 2004. I was going through some crazy emotional stuff, and Colin's hospitality, kindness, great service and excellent accommodations were just great and somehow therapeutic. When I explained that I taught yoga, he showed me the area he was building for...

It was a very alarming moment when I arrived at the Montego Hotel directly across from the Montego Bay Airport in Jamaica and realized that my pocket had been picked enroute, and that my wallet containing all cash and credit cards were gone. The very attractive desk clerk could only smile and say, "Sorry sir, without cash or a credit...

Comfortable & affordable, with a delightfully hospitable staff and host. I stayed here for 3 nights while travelling through Jamaica with friends in 8/07, and while the guesthouse wasn't terribly accessible to Doctor's Cove by foot, Colin (our generous host) drove us to the beach several times and went out of his way to make our stay convenient and enjoyable....

We stayed at Ridgeway Guest House in July, during Reggae Sumfest 2006. It's a cute guest house on the hill, right across from Sangster International Airport. It's a short drive to the Hip Strip, Dr.'s Cave Beach, downtown and St. Catherine Hall (Sumfest venue). A little too far to walk on a hot day though.... The room was clean and...
