It was our first time in Belize. What caught our eye was the old world charm we saw in the pictures of the Great House at a fair price. I loved that the hotel had history in Belize. When we arrived, we were not disappointed. What a wonderful place! The staff were all so pleasant and helpful! The continental breakfast...

Nice clean place with great staff. It was my first night in Belize and the location worked out well for our plans. There are many restaurants within walking distance and parking there is secure. the morning breakfast was a nice touch.

Belize is 3rd World No doubt. Tourist spots are the Highlands (San Ignacio) or the Cays for beach goers or divers. If you need to spend the night in Belize City, The Great House is old time cool with an edge, Alternatively the choice is the Radison chain dump across the street which is next to another hotel that recently...

Belize City seems more of a tourist pitt stop than a chosen destination. You pop in and pop out when you have to. Its hotels seem to know this and decent places are scarce. Chateau Caribbean burnt to the ground last November, the Radisson Fort George is a very poor relation to its international cousins, and The Great House is...

Feels like a huge old house that was converted to a hotel. The room was simple and classy and felt very home-y. Very clean. In-room wifi worked well. Bed was comfy. A/C worked well. Small in-room refrigerator. Came with a breakfast coupon for the coffee shop next door, food was just ok and coffee wasn't very good. There is a...

There really aren't too many places, in Belize City, that I would feel safe staying in. In addition to the convenient location, The Great House is a charming hotel. HOWEVER, be prepared to climb steps as they have no elevator. We were on the top floor and it was a nice climb! The staff is friendly and helpful. They advised...

This hotel has lots of character and is a short walk to lots of activities. The rooms are very spacious and lovely. The rooms were very clean and tidy. The breakfast was next door at the cafe and was great!

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,...

“All rooms are located on the 2nd floor or above. We stayed in a room next to the lobby. It was very quiet.”

“Ask for room 8, it appears to have sea views (though to sure if you can open the window)!”
PRsue_v, 17 Apr 2017 | Read review
“Ask for corner rooms. For the same price, you will receive a much larger room.”

“If you have heavy luggage, ask for a room on the second floor. ”

“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.”
