I stayed here for two nights at the end of our holiday in Belize. The room we got was spacious and clean. The theme was British colonial with quality furniture and furnishings.you are a 5 minute walk to the shops in downtown Belize city and the tourist village for the cruise boats.

We stayed here for one night on our way back from a resort in Hopkins, a few hours down the coast from Belize City. The room was clean, and the staff was pleasant. We were very underwhelmed by the hotel. The hotel itself is pretty neat, because it is an old plantation house. When we arrived, the room was clean,... More

We booked this place two days before we left for Belize, it was just ok. End of school year madness left husband and I no planning time, and reading up the Lonely Planet plus being our first time to Belize made us want to book somewhere safe, like in the Tourist Village. This was cheaper than the Radisson so here... More

We stayed at the Great House for 2 nights. We had to change plans and leave after one and they moved our pre booked night to later in the week. In addition, they stored our excess luggage so we could travel lighter. The front desk staff was always friendly and very helpful. Rooms was comfortable with great AC. Coffee and... More

I stayed here for business in Belize City multiple times now. I like the location - walking distance to food, shops, and most meetings. Can run along the waterfront path. Staff are very delightful and accommodating. Rooms are nice and clean. Downsides are few. Could be better breakfast, shower heads (to control excess water use), windows, views, but good value...

This is an awesome "boutique" hotel. Clean, friendly staff, and lovely rooms. Restaurant and bar on site are great! Love staying here on my trips to Belize. Great rates, too. Wish they had a pool, however.

For those staying in Belize City, this is a nice, comfortable option. The building itself is lovely, but the interior -- particularly the front desk/hallways -- are pretty bland. Our room was spacious, but the bedding/linens felt well-worn & the overall feel was that the hotel was past its prime. We really enjoyed our dinner at the Smoky Mermaid, and... More

We stayed two nights at the Great House. Even though it is supposed to be in the safer section of town we were told to not be out walking after dark. The hotel consists of the top 2 floors of an old colonial house. We stayed in room 16 which was a large room with a king size bed. The... More

The service is super friendly, and helpful. The rooms are clean. The house itself is a true throwback to a much earlier time in Belize's history. Kinda makes you wonder how the neighborhood was in a different day and age. Considering how sketchy Belize City can be, the Great House is a good introduction. At the very least, you feel... More
