Shirley Retreat House is a pleasant guesthouse. It's warm tangerine color is inviting. It is located in a quiet residential area, but less than a mile walk from Devon House in one direction and the Bob Marley Museum in the other. You can easily walk to those places or walk to Hope Road and take a bus. There is a small parking lot in front. It comes with a complimentary breakfast, which consisted of whole wheat toast, eggs made to order and instant coffee or tea. You can eat in the small, pleasant inside restaurant, or opt for sitting out on the front patio. If you want to have lunch there, you need to tell them ahead of time. There is wi-fi access in the lobby and on the front patio, but not in the restaurant or rooms. Our room was large, clean and had air conditioning. The rooms are on the second floor, and there is no elevator. The staff is very pleasant and helpful, but not knowledgeable of the restaurants within walking distance. They recommended TGI Fridays, which is only 2 blocks away, but we were interested in something more local. Also, there are no brochures of things to do, like most hotels have, so you are on your own to decide what you will do. But who needs brochures or touristy ads, when you have Trip Advisor! The guesthouse desk clerk will call you a taxi and ask the company what the charge will be for you. We were very pleased with our stay here.
