The Great House is a wonderful find. It is tucked into the old Fort area right across the street from the Baron Bliss Lighthouse. The rooms are quaint, if a bit dated, but that almost seems part of the charm of this lovely inn. Our room was clean and comfortable, so all good there. The huge wrap around decks with...

I stayed here 2 different nights in different rooms. Both were clean & comfortable. Plus the restaurant attached to it was excellent! Staff was good. If you can't climb stairs though don't stay here. The lobby is on 2nd floor and some rooms are on the 3rd floor....no elevator.

Rate: a little on the pricy side but you get what you pay for Service: maid service is excellent and pays attention to detail. Mops each floor everyday Room: historic rooms with high ceilings. The room we are in, #8, is small but the ceilings are high which makes the room feel bigger. #8 is third floor on the corner...

Everything was just as the reviews stated: great place to land in Belize city before heading to the islands the next morning. Clean room, friendly staff and ease to the ferry terminal. The food was good too! Thank you!

The staff was very friendly and knew my name after just checking in. I've stayed at The Great House for the last 7 years and have always felt safe and very comfortable. They are very accommodating at the front desk. The restaurant has good food but sometimes it is difficult to get waited on, especially at the bar.

Staying at The Great House Hotel was a genuinely fine experience. The staff were very helpful, and although all dining was closed down for Christmas day, it was easy to access nearby amenities at the Radisson Hotel. In other words, we were able to enjoy 'old world charm' but also have the convenience of other places to eat. Security seemed...

We spent 2 nights in December in this Colonial style house, before and after Christmas on our way to Placencia. We had first a Standard room, very spacious and nice enough, but needs renovating. The second room was more expensive, but totally renovated and very nice. Worth the extra money, even if we found that it was a little expensive.

First, the hotel is located in a safe area of Belize City, which was nice. There's a wonderful cafe next door that the hotel gives a breakfast voucher for. The rooms are pretty spacious, with decent beds and great bathrooms. The front desk check-in is simple and easy, with a friendly staff. The rates were reasonable and either the same...

See earlier comments. Our room was spacious and clean; the staff was helpful and friendly. There are stairs to be climbed to the front desk and there is no elevator. We thought the price of the room was high compared to other hotels in Belize City, though it is below the price of the Radisson, but many of those hotels...
