Just arrived and it is charming. Spacious bedrooms and a lovely view. Bed is comfortable. Hardwood floors and nicely appointed bathroom. It looks like it was once a fancy house that was turned into a hotel. Has a b and b feel to it.

The Great House is very nice. However, Belize City is kind of limited. Nice place to stay for one night before venturing out into the other parts of the country, or the night before an early morning flight out.

The Great House is in a perfect location for exploring Belize City...we walked to the swing bridge, town, and to the water taxis that go to Ambergis (San Pedro) and Cay Caulker. The restaurant downstairs...The Smokey Mermaid was also a go to. Our room had good wifi and American cable tv.

Quiet, safe and comfortable. Restaurant below and excellent coffee place next door. Close to water taxi terminal and cruise ship dock. Walking around was fine during the day but at night felt a little scary but we did it and had no issue in the early evening. Excellent staff nice quaint rooms in a lovely old colonial building. Lovely feel...

Beautiful hotel in a great location. Smoky Mermaid restaurant a great asset. The Petit Cafe next door for continental breakfast not very good as far as service or food. The cappuccino was great though!

A good and central hotel, clean, nice interior, very nice building (colonial style) Unfortunately they do not offer breakfast but the nearby Radisson Hotel is a good possibility to get a good breakfast!

The room was beautiful, the staff was amazing and the location was pretty great. From our hotel, we had very easy access to a few places to eat, the boardwalk along the water, Baron's Bliss Lighthouse, the Tourist Village and the water taxi depot. The staff was also able to arrange tours of the region with fairly short notice, so...
