The lodge was a private mansion that is now an Inn.We booked water view rooms and when we got there, they put us in rooms in the back of the hotel. We asked to switch to water view rooms which we had booked. The manager switched our rooms but the water view is only from the common porch. We think... More

This hotel is across from the Radisson and much cheaper. Great location to get away from the crazy Belize City. If you have to be in town this is the place to stay. It feels like staying in a nice home. Definitely get a junior suite.

This hotel is one of the most beautiful in Belize City. They give you complimentary coffee and bananas. Make sure to book rooms in higher floors since you can hear everything going on the room upstairs. It has air conditioning and it's a block from the coastline.

I selected The Great House over some of the larger hotels in the area due to better reviews (and I'm glad I made that decision). Plus, it looked more like a "local inn" than a big chain hotel, and that was appealing as the first stop in our first Central American trip. The staff were very helpful for restaurant &... More

Had a wonderful time at the Great House. The staff was very friendly and very accommodating to the guests. I particularly enjoyed the quaint and rustic look and feel of the room. it was like country living in the City.

Housekeeping was disappointing and TV was in a strange position but other than that I would definitely recommend this hotel for travellers staying in Belize City. Close to city centre, water taxis and other city attractions. Breakfast was ok but a little inconvenient as it is a voucher for the cafe next door!!

Great feeling of being home. Convenient location - walking distance to downtown and nearby eateries. Staff was great and reacted quickly to any request. The bedding cover and shams needs updating. We had to request that ours be especially laundered as it was a little musty.

We love coming here. It is very easy to find, and the staff is great. Close to our favorite restaurant The Celebrity. The parking is secure, and the rooms are kept clean. Coffee shop downstairs gives us something good to eat each morning, and if we want a big breakfast, we have the Raddisson next door

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.
