There are more glamorous, modern and well maintained places to stay in Belize city although I would say this is probably the most charming and the one with most character if you are looking for an authentic experience that conveys the history of the town. Rooms are basic although clean, and the service was faultless. The breakfast arrangement was inadequate... More

This is a great place to stay in Belize city. Clean rooms and comfortable beds. They partner with the Raddison across the street so you can eat there and use the pool there which is great. Beautiful historical building for a bed and breakfast.

The Great House is a Charming hotel. The room is super spacious. Our team (of 5) had a meeting in one of the rooms with PLENTY of room. Some rooms have sofas and a little table. Others have larger tables. A family of 4 would be comfortable. In addition, there are sitting areas on the balconies. They provide bottled water,... More

We only stayed for one night since there is not much to do in Belize City. Clean and affordable. Restaurants and parks nearby. Walking distance to the Belize signs and the lighthouse for pictures. Good for the area.

I went to Belize City for an overnight shopping trip and decided to try The Great House. The third floor room was fine for the night, but it is a historic building. The steps are a bit steep and not covered which was a bit uncomfortable in the rain. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was good. I will... More

I have stayed here twice and will continue to do so when I return to Belize City. It is a beautiful hotel right near the water. Safe, accommodating staff, wrap-around porches with ocean view and breezes, walkability to restaurants and a cafe and swimming pool next door.

Lots of old world charm here with updates in all the right places. The room was large with an attached sitting room & extra large bathroom. The restaurant downstairs was a lovely garden setting. Very good food.

This is a very old and unique hotel. The wood, floors, ceiling, the veranda and all is beautiful. There are lots of steps and no alternatives. The restaurant downstairs is awful and smells like dirty cat litter. I think it was a bit overpriced.

The great house Inn is centered around hard working, friendly, and helpful people. The hotel itself is a reformation of the past of Belize made into the present. It is a taste of the old history of Belize and within it , lies the story of the generations that once were and ultimately the present. Enrique is also a great... More
