Very good 79%

Sure it's cheap.
The young man in charge and his wife were very nice. But the owner is a true businessman. I made a mistake of 1 night for my reservation (already payed) of 10 nights ; we called him 3 days before, he décided to give me half of the refund.
The garden is very nice but the rooms are not very clean, I am not sure that they put soap in the washmachine for the towels and bed linen ! even the bathroom outside is a little bit dirty.
You can use the washmachine for 400 JMD et 100 JMD for the computer for 30 minutes.
You can use kitchen or fridge but put your name on the things...
In fact, the rooms "in the garden" are very simple with some wall in light wood or in tents.
Be careful with the mosquitos.
In may, it was very hot and it was difficult to sleep even with the noise of the television or when people talked in the other rooms or in the kitchen.
Before to come, I received some photographies of the room and I was surprised that the fan which was on the photos, missed.
I don't think that I will return in this place.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The people who stayed in the property watched LOUDLY STUPID television every evening, which is located just outside of my room. It was extremely annoying- I was tired at the end of the day but could not rest because of this television's noise. Not everyone appreciate the STUPID television. PLEASE REMOVE IT. Second, the people staying in the property moved around and talked loud at 2:00am and 3:00am. I guess that that time is to sleep!! The Durham should have clear rules and regulations of conduct. Otherwise, those people who do not have common sense rule the place.
Thank you.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Me and my girlfriend flew to and from kingston airport, so we stayed at the Durham in the beginning and at the end of our journey. Its a very nice guesthouse. It's clean, it has a nice backyard with palms and mango trees to hang out and relax. There is water for free and you can even use the internet there. The guys there are really helpful and give you good advice on what's to do and to see in and around kingston. If you want to go out in Kingston, just ask Andre. He knows what's going on(and he'll probably join you^^). If you're interested in Caribbean food, make sure to eat at Doctor Spice(less than 5 minutes away), the food there is delicious(and very affordable). Hoping to come back to this beautiful island soon...

The owner and his staff are very helpful and always there to assist and advise you. They are very laid-back people, so you are bound to have a very relaxing time at the Durham. The garden of the Durham is amazing and lets you totally forget that you are in a big city. I would definitely recommend the Durham to any one who is on his way to Kingston.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Nice guesthouse with cosy backyard with tables. Located near Sovereign shopping mall. Approx. 30 min walk (or 5 min drive) from Bob Marley's Museum. The owner is very friendly and gives useful advices about Jamaica (public transport, accomodation and tourist attractions). We were checked-in in a cheaper room than we originally booked (25 vs 40 USD). In this case we had to call Mr. Oliver to avoid any future payment misunderstanding. This garden room was very basic but clean. In total: this place is a good value for money to stay in Kingston.
