“Plan on going back!!”
Reviewed April 20, 2010

I stayed at the Coningsby Inn for 4 nights recently when I went to Belize and really enjoyed myself. The staff are very sweet and helpful and the food is great! It's very affordable and clean (and I'm very picky!) and they will go out of their way to help you plan little adventures. It's in Belize City but it's tucked away from the noise and chaos of downtown and about 3 minutes away from the water. You can easily walk to several restaurants, shops, bars, the bus station and the water taxi station from here. One of the biggest perks, in my opinion, was that I could leave my hotel and explore the city on foot (it's small but there is a lot to see just w/in Belize City). The picture attached is the view from behind the hotel of the sea. Most of my evenings were spent on the upstairs porch laughing and drinking w/the other hotel guests. If you stop by be sure and say hi to Roger, the resident watchdog.

This is not the cleaniest hotel, but the service is good, the place is safe (even tough it's in a bad neighborhood) and it's close to the banks, taxi ferry, bus station, restaurants, cheap shops and colonial cultural buildings. Dont' miss Brid's Isle for dinner. Beware if you're a light sleeper, dogs in the neighborhood bark all night long!!!

We only stayed one night in Belize City on our way from Tulum to Tikal. I have traveled throughout many out-of-the-way places in Mexico, but the trip from the border of Mexico to Belize City was rather depressing. It was more of a dirty kind of poverty - we passed many areas with broken down, rusted cars in the yard, and many houses in various states of disrepair. We arrived in Belize City in the evening, and although we usually travel by public transportation, we opted to take a taxi to our hotel. The Coningsby Inn had a locked door, which I suppose is normal for the area, and the city. The owner and employees were very friendly, and the public spaces were attractive. We had a room for three (2 adults and one child) for $65 Am. dollars. As it is not safe to walk around after dark in small groups, we walked with an American mission group, which was staying at the hotel, to a great restaurant - El Centro, which is a few blocks from the hotel. Our room was adequate, and clean, but that is about it. No frills, but a pretty nice shower. Dogs barking outside at night. The road was being worked on in front of the hotel, so was a dirt road. They have a sitting area upstairs, where we bought a beer while we read our books at night. The breakfast was wonderful, and the cook was friendly and charming! We had Belizian flapjacks and they were wonderful! Not a great hotel, but in a decent location and a good, convenient place to spend a night if passing through town.

  • Liked — Nice shower!
  • Disliked — Location - Belize City is not a greatl, safe town!

Coningsby was home to myself and a group of students along with another professor colleague in June 2007. we were in Belize City to learn about health and human services. Coningsby was a great base. The new manager who was the owner worked in the stock market for more than 20 years in the USA. She has now returned home and the place is well-run and she is very helpful in arranging transportation for tours or to the airport. Rooms were clean, with cable TV and phones in the room which is a lot of amenities for a small 10 room inn. the security is great and it is near the waterfront. You can walk to the commercial center of town, to the tourist village and to the museum. The food is very good and the staff are friendly.

  • Liked — friendly staff and unlimited internet
  • Disliked — Belize City is not the most exciting spot in that country

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone at anytime. It is in total disrepair and smells bad.

We only stayed one night and that was too long. The rooms are cramped and the bathroom was awful. When we complained that the light in the bathroom didn't work, they brought us a light bulb! It was a joke.

The staff was lazy and seemed put out if you asked for anything.

I can't believe that hotels.com even puts this place on line.

Don't stay here!!

The Coningsby Inn in Belize city was a great budget palce to stay. The rooms were large and quiet, the staff - and even their families - went out of their way to make us feel at home. The neighborhood is relatively safe, but afterall this is Belize city . However the hotel itself is very safety aware - you will feel safe here. Food was average, I recommend eating out - but if you are strapped- its always nice to be able to get some food right where you are staying.
