Some of our reviews:
Bethel Court Guest House is the best place to stay in Montego Bay if you want to see the real Jamaica. Steve organizes the safest and cheapest transportation and guides. Thank you Steve and thanks to Mckenzie, Richard and Nerressa.
I would recommend Bethel Court to everyone, I stayed there with a party of both kids & adults Feb 2010 & had no complaints, Ingrid & Steve are so friendly & helpful, anything you need they assist immediately, 1 of them is always available at any time of day or night. The accommodations are very clean, my bed was amazing. I wanted to take it home with me. Bethel Court has lots of fans & access to hot water!!!! Local taxis are very easy to access, you literally step out your front door into the car, lol.
I can't wait to get back to Bethel Court, I felt safe & welcomed, couldn't ask for more really.
In short, Bethel Court was truly an all-around, phenomenal place to call home for a week. I'm an avid traveler and have stayed at over 30 hostels all over the world. The most important things I seek in a hostel include SAFETY, attentive staff, cleanliness/comfort, good value, and location. The owners of Bethel Court, Ingrid and Steve, are hands-down some of the most amazing, sincere, invested, AVAILABLE, and caring business owners with whom I have ever interacted. The facilities are simple, no-frills, and very clean. Also, Richard, our key to 'real Jamaica,' who also works at Bethel Court, was amazing!!! I'm excited to return!
I stayed with Steve and Ingrid last summer for about 4 days during the annual Reggae Sumfest and was so happy with my stay. I know most that want to be on the main strip may not like where they are. But it is worth staying there. Steve and Ingrid took us in as if we were family. First of all, they picked us up from the airport and brought us to one of their favorite authentic Jamaican restaurants. Then we went back to the room we were staying at. We did not expect to be staying in an apartment at all. It was so nice to have a full kitchen and cable TV. That night they drove us down to the main strip to go listen to some local reggae bands where they stayed and hung out with us.
During the rest of the time, they showed us how to use the public transportation to get to different areas we wanted to visit, how to get to the Reggae Sumfest (when they were not dropping us off), and even lending us chairs to sit out at the concert over the 3 nights. They went above and beyond and they were so affordable. I have talked to many of my friends about the hospitality and convinced them to stay there if and when they visit. Thank you Steve and Ingrid for that lovely time in Jamaica.
As one guest puts it in his review of Bethel Court 'Richard, our key to real Jamaica''. Richard is 21 years old, he is our resident tour guide, and on your first day of arrival he will give you a free tour of Montego Bay and get you use to taking the local route taxi that cost $0.90 United States dollar, to downtown and the beaches.
One of his special tours is to take you through the forest to our local river and back. On the way you can learn about our native fruit trees and plants. Also, many guest have enjoyed his tours to Negril (Margarittaville and Ricks Café), Ocho Rios (Dunns river falls), all costing $5.00 United States Dollar by local bus.

c'est la deuxième fois que nous avons réservé chez Bethel puisque mon mari et moi avons eu un service hors pairs lors de notre premier passage ( transport de l'aéroport jusqu'au studio, location, environnement etc). Cette deuxième expérience fut totalement DIFFÉRENTE. malgré le retard à l'aéroport et l'hotel overbooked, Bethel a su rapidement nous relocaliser dans un bel hotel dans le hip strip tel qu'avait été choisi par moi et mon conjoint lorsque nous avons appris la nouvelle dans le taxi de Bethel qui est venu nous chercher . Malgré l'entente de dormir à un autre hotel pour une seule nuit, Steve nous a rappeler en milieu d'après midi pour nous faire savoir qu'il sera impossible de passer la seconde nuit chez lui car l'endroit est pleins. Un peu décu d'avoir attendu le taxi pendant 2 hres dans le lobby de l'hotel mais bon... Nous avons donc séjourné 2 jours à l'hotel Tobys au frais de Behtel et Steve nous a offert un 20$ us comme dédommagement puisque nous avions tous apporté pour cuisiner dans notre studio préalablement choisi. Par contre, entre le quartier hip strip et celui de Behtel, nous préférons de loin le quartier local de Bethel très peu touristique, beaucoup plus "black friendly " plus abordable pour des voyageurs low budget comme nous :). ceci étant dit, comme je suis en Jamaique à tout les 3-4 mois, Nous comptons bien réserver un studio à Bethel.
The accommodation was clean, functional and cool. Steve was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend the apartment
Listen. This place is rough. I'm from South Africa and I'm used to rough, but this was ghetto as all hell. It's in a really bad area, we decided not too stay there after looking at the place. Be weary in booking for this place. It should be said I wasn't given a refund either. I want my $ back.. Don't stay here
Travis appear to be a great guest, going on tours with our drivers and having fun.
He informed us that he had to leave a day earlier and wanted a refund for one day.
We told him is booking states that there was no refund after checking in. We are very surprise on is comments. He left here with all smiles stating that he would love to come back and visit us. I guest he is not use to been around doctors and nurses and professional people of color.
A friend and I stayed at Bethel Court for 4 weeks in December as we were doing a medical student placement down the road at Cornwall Regional Hospital. It was really convenient for us, a 15 min walk to the hospital or a 1 USD per person taxi ride which we did mostly because it was very hot, and the road is busy and chaotic in parts!
Bethel Court was great. Our apartment was really big, and met all of our needs. We actually started out in a smaller one but we asked to move and Steve, the owner, was more than happy to move us. We did a lot of our own cooking, and had our laundry done for 5 USD per load. Beds were super comfortable, shower was hot, and living room was big! Steve was helpful in answering all of our questions. McKenzie, the driver, was great. It ends up costing about the same for him to take you anywhere rather than catching the route taxis (where you may have to change multiple times). He took us to the gym early in the morning, and even came with us once! We decorated our place with Christmas decorations and Mckenzie lent us his tree, and had his mum make us a traditional rum cake and sorrel, a Jamaican drink.
Mount Salem, where Bethel court is located, is close to downtown, 1 USD in a taxi. Probably wouldn't take too long to walk but as two girls, we were heckled a lot on the street. This became pretty annoying and meant we didn't have a lot of independence, relying on taxis or Mckenzie to take us everywhere. This was tough for a month, but doable. A lot of people we spoke to were very surprised we were staying in Mt Salem, as it has a reputation of being dangerous. We didn't find it so bad, and were able to walk up to the supermarket (5mins away) safely in the daytime, and go on early morning walks around the neighbourhood. Just have to keep your wits about you!
Overall, Bethel court was great. Good for meeting other travellers, lovely staff, and we felt very welcome and safe!
simply put the people are great and made the stay as comfortable as possible. whether it was Richard (aka Richie Rich) who took me out at night with the locals or Minat the driver i was lucky to meet and depend on whenever needed, the stay was great. thanks to the bethel house team.
The guest house was very nice. When I arrived at the airport in Jamaica they had a driver there waiting to transport me to the guest house. The staff was extremely helpful in arraging transportation for me around Jamaica. They also were helpful in making sure that I wasn't over charged by drivers when being taken out of different excursions. I would definetly recommend Bethel as a place to stay and would definately stay there again.
Far away from the city. Bad neighborhood. Loud and not very clean.
He had a great time so he stayed two extra nights. After he left, 2 days later, he send us a message saying that he left is ipod in the suite. We check and also check with the staff, we did not find the ipod. He had met a local girl who was staying with him. We told him to see if his friend took it.
