Love the location of the Great House! It does have stairs to get to the rooms so if you can't do stairs it might not be the place for you. Rooms are large and comfortable. Staff is very nice. I always stay there for a few nights before going to Hopkins or Ambergris Caye.

The staff was excellent. Room was perfect. If you need anything just ask. The restaurants within walking distance were perfect. Especially the one downstairs. We will go back, if for no other reason, the food.

Good location and reasonable value. We asked for room near entrance as one of us on crutches, and we were given a room by reception, which was fine. Downside is that all rooms are one floor above ground level and there are no lifts. Adequate parking after lunch time customers went off.

The Great House is clean, has nice beds to sleep on and is located near a nice walking path. The staff is very nice and accommodating. A nice place to stay during your visit to Belize City. Third floor has views and a nice swing to relax on.

Good hotel in Belize City. Just in front of the Radisson. Good place to stay one night, but Belize City has almost nothing to offer... The country is beautiful though, the beaches are amazing. The room was clean and spacious. The receptionists very welcoming! You can have breakfast at a small bakery just beside the hotel. You get a voucher... More

This place is so sweet, small and simple hotel, grandma style but real cute, nice staff and great location, nice breakfast place next door and right opposite, some restaurants around in safe walk distance ... We loved it! Nice place for couples too.

Coming to Belize on business allows few choices for safe, clean and comfortable lodging. The Great House is that and more. With a colonial style, comfortable furnishings and a modern bath it exists in a class above the chain hotels.

The Great House is a lovely old building in Belize City. However, it is expensive - I guess all decent hotels in Belize City are expensive - comes with the territory. The only problem for us was the pricing. The prices given are for ONE PERSON - not for a room. So each person after the first, is charged an... More

I just returned from a trip to Belize and I would for sure recommend The Great House. We stayed in Belize City for the duration and did day trips to places such as the Cayes, the ATM cave and Lamanai. The Great House is close to the water taxi to the Cayes (5 min walk) and all of the tours... More

We stayed for 3 nights over New Year. Overall we enjoyed our stay. There was an initial issue at check in as we were assigned the smallest room no. 8 (I had done my research on tripadvisor). However after politely declining this room we were offered another more spacious room. The decor was a little tired and smelt a bit... More

Thank you for your comments, we appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience. Room #8 is the smallest room in house, however has all the amenities of the larger rooms and for some very cozy. Thank you for bringing our attention to the decor and musty smell. We have changed the tired decor and have identified where... More
