We stayed at The Great House for 3 nights, left and came back to spend our last night there in Belize. When we first got there, we were surprised at the poor quality of the room that we had. It didn't look anything like the pictures they advertised! Small and run down. When we returned for the final night, we...

My wife and I and our adult daughter (who had her own room) stayed here the night before we left for home. The place is quaint and very clean. It is also only a 10 minute walk from the ferry dock if you are coming from Ambergis Caye. Our room was actually much nicer than our daughter's for the same...

Being that The Great House is a Colonial Structure, and I have much love and appreciation for historical monuments and design within my country, I definitely enjoyed my stay here. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. The rooms were beautiful, having somewhat a rustic design and kept clean. When I needed comfort at the end of my days' work,...

We only stayed in the Great House one night after our long day of travel from the US. The room was clean, the bed was comfy, and we slept well in the AC. Breakfast at the cafe next door was included. Overall very pleased with our experience

Room and hotel is nice, but on the expensive side. A bit of a party place too, so if you're hoping to get a good night's sleep, maybe not the right choice. View is pretty, if it were a little less expensive and quieter, I would have been totally happy with it. The restaurant downstairs was great.

Gotta love the Great House Hotel! It's an old Caribbean-style building, which can have some disadvantages. But I'd rather focus on its advantages, which are many. The rooms are impeccable, spacious and designed for comfort. The bathrooms are very roomy too. Each bedroom offers air conditioning (necessary in Belize City), a very comfortable bed, and good cable TV (was very...

Michelle at the Great House went above and beyond to make my fiances birthday and our stay special. They helped accommodate by providing a cake and balloons to surprise him upon arrival! They helped with transportation to the airport. More than we could have asked for! Thanks!

Very nice and comfortable B&B. Staff is very helpful. Breakfast at the next door cafe and is by voucher which covers a pastry and coffee. Neighborhood is safe by Belize City standards. I did hear shots fired at 2AM one morning.

This was our first stop arriving in Belize. It was perfect place to land and settle for a few days before continuing on. We stayed in room 16, the bed was comfortable and the room was very clean and nice. The hardwood floors were beautiful. Enrique was very helpful in providing information as we planned the rest of our trip....

Stayed with my daughter for 2 nights in Feb 2017 while on holiday, clean, quiet and nice location. We used this for a jump off point for some Mayan ruin tours. Attached restaurant was nice. Good overall value.

“Room 5 needs a bit of updating. Bathroom door doesn't close. Go across the street to the Radisson if you want drinks or a full breakfast. The restaurant downstairs from the Great House was disappointing for drinks, so we didn't try it for dinner.”
