“a bit more $, but great quiet stay”
Reviewed November 21, 2013 via mobile

This place was a little more expensive than we hoped (and we couldn't talk them down due to the quiet season), but we had a lovely stay in this lovely house. It was safe and secure and the owners were very friendly. The full kitchen was a massive bonus as we hadn't been able to cook for a long time. The balcony around the house was great to sit and relax - unfortunately we had to spend a lot of time here due to the 3days of rain we had, which cancelled all of the more adventurous trips.
$7US to do our own washing was a bit steep though!

We stayed here for one night in San Ignacio. The rooms are clean and large, there is access to a big kitchen, staff are friendly, and the cost is very much worth it. We plan to return to San Ignacio one day to do some of the tours that were closed at the time due to flooding, and we would stay here again.

This is a great budget accomodation! Very clean, quiet & safe, and great price for belize! The owners are welcoming and friendly, we enjoyed exchanging stories and chatting with them about belizean culture, cooking & politics etc. Huge beautiful kitchen which we used for every meal as eating out is quite expensive in San ignacio and belize in general. Close to markets, bus station and the Main Street. It's worth paying the extra few dollars to stay here (we are backpackers) as the other hostels/budget accommodations in town are not good!

I was impressed by how clean and peaceful this place was. It's perfectly located in a quiet section of the town yet it's only a 5 minute walk to the stores, restaurants, market, and park. Also the bus terminal is close by. The owners are friendly and accommodating. The kitchen is great if you are up to preparing your own meal and the sitting area is airy for you morning coffee while you catch up with the news or use the computer. I think it's great value for your money.

Very clean, excellent value, washer and dryer facilities (a must after going through the ATM caves!), access to a complete kitchen, lovely common area, very secure, friendly host, quiet, good shower. We really enjoyed ourselves. It is important for the host to know about when you are arriving. He isn’t always around, so if you don’t have a key, you wouldn’t be able to get in. He knew we were arriving “before dark” and that was accurate enough.

This place is so comfortable and welcoming. The HUGE common kitchen area is spotless and charming. The rooms are simple; very clean and comfortable. The owners are very nice and accommodating. We especially liked the location since they are down the street a block or two from the main part of town so it is very quiet. The wi fi works beautifully - well enough to support a flawless Face Time call to the states on my iPhone. They also have a bottled water dispenser so you can fill up your water bottles before heading out for the day, and they had coffee ready for us when we got up in the morning. We felt safe leaving our things in the room because the rooms are on the second floor above street level and there is a metal locking gate to get into the premises. The owners live onsite, too, which helps with the security factor. If I ever return to San Ignacio, I will come back to the Western Guest House for sure.

My husband and I had a great time staying at The Western Guest House in San Ignacio. It was very clean, had nice beads, hot private shower and Internet all for a really good price. You can even have use of their kitchen and cook your own meals if you prefer. There is also a washer and dryer for a fee which is nice.
It is away from noisy streets but still close enough to walk to everything. There is a store across the street, and many restaurants close by.
There is also a nice big balcony and a common area inside which are great places to relax.
Owned by really nice and helpful people.
This place is highly recommended and we would love to come back some day.
