Peter and Elaine are absolutely WONDERFUL!! We stayed for four night and as a lot of folks say, the reviews are right, a truly lovely, cozy place to stay while visiting Montego Bay. As with the “big” hotels/resorts, Peter will help you book your tours at your convenience. A huge plus here for us was the breakfasts. They were amazing... More

I spent a week at the B&B with my sister. The reviews are true. I cannot overstate the quality of the service. Peter and Elaine, the owners, are as delightful as they are helpful. They arranged tours for us, drivers to take us to and from the airport, learned our breakfast preferences and facilitated our vacation in every conceivable way.... More

This is an oase! Stayed 2 weeks. So quiet, yet so close to everything. Of course,when on the terrace in the evening, we could hear music from bars on Hip Strip, but it was not a problem. It is very nice to watch the cruiseships come and go from the big terrace. The staff does everything to make you feel... More

Peter and Elaine are so sweet!! They arranged us a cab (hopefully you'll get Michael, the driver, because he was hilarious!!) to pick us up (no extra charge). When we arrived, Peter met us at the door and had a nice, ice cold glass of sweetened limeade ready for us-which, in the hot, muggy heat was like a tiny oasis... More

Lovely bed & breakfast! Can't go wrong here. Your choice of Jamaican breakfast (not served in any hurry though). Rooms are fantastic. Staff are like ninjas, you can't see them but you know they are there. You also get your own key fob so you can get in and out of the gate and front door on your own without... More

We stayed at Polkerris for 2 weeks in August. The house is beautiful and Peter and Elaine were perfect hosts. We had an amazing welcome with lovely home-made limeade and Peter took the time to show us around and go through all the details.

This place is just amazing! The room, the people, the location, the view, the breakfast...just everything! We stayed there three nights and we felt like home! We had a free pick-up service from the airport and when we arrived Jeremy and Clarisse welcomed us very warm!

Polkerris is a world-class Bed and Breakfast perched above Montego Bay overlooking the ocean. It is a splendid place to relax and enjoy peace and calm, good food - Jamaican style if you choose - and stunning sunsets.
