Spent one night here because the Radisson was full. Had minor problems with tv and a/c but the lovely front desk person was very helpful. The room was clean and the beds comfortable so that was a huge plus for us. The only downside here was the constant noise from guest walking around and the moving of furnitures during cleaning...

On a recent trip to Belize City, we stayed here for 5 nights and the most important thing for me was that it was clean and the A/C worked. There were 3 of us in the room and we never had more than 2 wash cloths, luckily I travel with my own. On arrival, we were never told that we... More

The Great Housse is a lovely old mansion in Belize City. I was permitted to check in at 11 am as my room was ready and I had arrived in the city very early. My room was extremely clean and furnished in a style appropriate for such a building. The room was large and very comfortable. I would stay her... More

My wife and I had a very nice stay at the Great House Inn! May look a little on the worn side based on pics I saw, but definitely not the case. Very nice staff, clean rooms, comfortable bed, and even a modern bathroom (granite, etc). Convenient and safe location within the hotel district. Free breakfast at the cafe next... More

I was staying across the street at the Radisson and convinced my business colleagues to join me at the Great House for dinner. The restaurant has all the makings of a fantastic establishment, but the execution is lacking. The building is beautiful, a colonial masterpiece. The courtyard where the restaurant is a charming and romantic setting. But the service we... More

Thank you for your review. We do apologize for the unacceptable service received in the restaurant. The Great House Inn does not managed the restaurant, it is leased out. We take all reviews extremely seriously and have forwarded this review to the management of the restaurant. More

this is a lovely hotel and i will certainly choose it again....i will, however, request a room on the opposite side from the restaurant/bar. at about 4:00 PM VERY LOUD music began and it lasted until after 9:00PM. when i mentioned this to the front desk they did not seem inclined to do anything about it.

From check in till the time I left the staff was extremely helpful, going above and beyond to help me feel at home. Each room has a unique feel and touches. I requested a change of rooms for an ocean view and the staff accommodated me without hesitation. I highly recommend that you stay here if you are going to... More

This is one of those hotels that, if you are in that city, you have to stay there. It would be a unique staying experience anywhere, in these surroundings and with such a rustic feeling. Rooms are spacious and service is warm; they are helpful about anything. Having said this there are no real amenities other than basic, so you... More

The building is charming. Walking distance from the boats departure pier it is very well located and the rooms are clean and spacious. Nice veranda. The atmosphere is relaxing and encourages a time travel exercise. Complementary coffee and tea is available. Wifi is tricky, though. You only get good signal near the reception, which is on the first floor. As... More

We just spent one night here before we headed back home, but it was a nice location near the harbor, felt safe and the staff was very helpful. We stayed with our 2 boys in room 1, it was very large, and a major changing after being in the jungle for 6 nights. The restaurant was decent, nothing special, and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It would be my pleasure to welcome you to this wonderful Colonial home, which we have meticulously appointed with all the amenities for your comfort and convenience.This Belizean Landmark was built in 1927 by talented craftsmen and still retains its beauty, grace and charm. Now, this magnificent four-story colonial style residence is probably the largest classic wooden home still in existence in Belize. Originally built as a family home, this wonderful structure still provides, the warmth and comfort reminiscent of the early colonial times of Belize. Spacious verandahs allow you to relax and let go amidst the soothing embrace of the Caribbean breezes.The look and feel of yesterday with today's modern conveniences make THE GREAT HOUSE Belize's most desirable "outpost" away from home. Our colonial heritage and ambience are faithfully preserved in all of our sixteen guest rooms. Each is individually colour coordinated with a host of tasteful and comfortable appointments.From polished pine floor to fresh fruit on arrival, our guest rooms and our staff let you made the right choice. ... more   less
