Waterloo Guest House
Lonely Planet review
Facing the shoreline and the photogenic hulk of a rusting ship, this rickety Georgian edifice offers real offbeat charm and a distinctive claim to fame: it was the first house in Jamaica to be wired for electricity. It probably hasn’t changed much since. There are six meagerly furnished rooms with fans in the old house, plus 16 carpeted, more stylish rooms with cable TV and fridges in a modern annex. All have bathrooms with showers. There’s a cheerful bar and restaurant serving seafood, chop suey and ice cream (mains US$3 to US$4.50; open for breakfast, lunch and dinner).
