I stayed in The Great House while in Belize City, the second week of January. The room was booked for me prior to arrival, so was not sure what to expect having never been in Belize before. As it turned out, The Great House is a grand older lady, that wears her age very well. The room was large, very... More

This historic hotel is wonderful. The staff is friendly and helpful. We stayed in Room 2 next to the reception. Needlessly we worries about noise. The room was large and comfortable with a kingsize bed and a small sitting area. We enjoyed the place a lot. Unfortunately the breakfast that is included in the price, served at a small cafe...

We were very happy with our choice to stay at The Great House. It is a very quaint, Colonial-looking hotel in a quieter part of the city, with a wrap-around porch perfect for relaxing on, and a great jumping off spot for going on excursions or touring the city. We were greeted by very nice staff and pleased to see... More

We hadn't expected to be in Belize at all but following an medical emergency we found ourselves looking for last minute accommodation and faced with silly prices at the Radisson we opted for the far more spacious rooms at The Great House. The rooms definitely require some updating and if its a modern room you're after this is not the... More

We stayed here for a week and had a great time. The staff was very friendly and always welcomed us with a smile. They were extremely helpful with setting up tours and telling us about good local restaurants. The rooms were large and clean. I spent a lot of time relaxing on the porch of this beautiful "house" feeling the... More

We staid one night at the Great house. The room is ok, clean and comfortable but too expansive for its size . Not enough hot water (hardy tepid) so we couldn't enjoy the bathtub which was really a shame after 10 days of an intense trip. The breakfast is a real problem : we received a voucher for a maximum...

The Great House is just that, a large beautifully kept up "house" that has multiple rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floor. The staff were very friendly and welcoming on our arrival and there was someone to help us up with our bags (the Reception area is on the 2nd floor up a flight of steps and there is no... More

This converted old house is just a stones throw from the sea. It's centrally located and the rooms are huge. The staff were helpful and the rooms was fairly clean. We would have stayed longer but there is not much to see and do in the city.

These hotel rooms are massive compared to your typical two person room in the states. The ceilings are about ten feel high, so that makes the room feel much bigger instantly. We have two queen size beds in our room, two sinks, and a couch. This room could fit a small family easily, so I would recommend staying here if... More

Pros: large room with comfortable bed and quiet air conditioning, very friendly and helpful staff, loved the big balconies, Smokey Mermaid restaurant is on the 1st level of the hotel (independent from the hotel) and food was pretty good, free breakfast, Radisson is right across the street offering more restaurant choices, room was ready and very clean when we arrived...
