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

We love this grand old house, it's spacious and well appointed rooms, the verandas. There is a restaurant downstairs and it is within walking distance of the tourist village, some coffee shops and other attractions. We will be back!

My husband and I stayed her the first night of our honeymoon and I'm so glad we did! We ended up in a room on the third floor. The view was great, there was a nice breeze (we were able to sleep with the windows open) and it was nice and quiet. The hotel is within walking distance to bars... More
