The TWO ladies from Germany that manage the place there were very RUDE & MEAN to us (tourists). They charged us $5 just for taking a picture at that place, like if the view of Jamaica belongs to them. These TWO individuals treated very bad our driver even though she paid them the $5. These ladies were so EVIL that they even called the company where our driver works to put complaints about her and said LIES to the Owner. We said LIES because we were there. Tourist should NOT GO to paces were owners treat other people as SLAVES, or with RACISM. DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE...IT IS NOT WORTH IT.
I had my vow renewal at Richmond Hill Inn on July 12, 2019. I had contacted Gracie two years earlier to book my date and to workout the logistics of my party. Her response time to my emails were so prompt. Gracie answered all of my questions and was able to accommodate all of my needs. It was such a smooth process planning my party.
The party itself was perfect! The food was authentic Jamaican cuisine and there was plenty of it. The decor was perfect. The DJ was good, the bartender was good. We ate, drank and danced the night away. Gracie was there the whole time to make sure everything was perfect.
The view from Richmond Hill Inn is beautiful. We had dinner as the sun was setting. Totally picturesque!
The facility itself is great. The washrooms were clean. The venue is very specious. I liked the fact that the Inn is gated and they had security at the gate. I think this place is so much better than having a party at a resort. From the planning phase to the actual party was stress free. Dealing with Gracie was an absolute pleasure.
Richmond Hill Inn is a hidden gem in Montego Bay. Thank you Gracie for your help and it was such a pleasure to have met you. Thank you for taking care of me and my guests.
