Stayed for five nights while visiting Belize. Being in Belize City was great for doing day trips. There were four of us traveling and we had two rooms. Our rooms each had two queen sized beds. We had read all of the reviews so were aware that the Great House had no elevators and steep steps to climb. When we...

Room was spacious and with amenities. It was clean but not so comfortable. Staff was kind. Breakfast was supposed to be included but we only got a $3.5 coupon per person, which only pays a coffee. Besides, the service at Le Petit Cafe was terrible. Would suggest to consider other options.

Great and professional staff. Great location. Great views. Great rooms, albeit in the traditional colonial style with hardwood floors. Nice little restaurant open for lunch and dinner attached. Spending some time on the balcony in the late afternoon/early evening is a sublime joy. The free breakfast is actually a coupon for a small coffee place (with pastries) next door in...

Rooms are spacious and pretty, with all amenities you could ask for in that price range. Staff is nice and helpful. Only negatives are cleanliness and maintenance, which should be better, and the fact that they send you next door to a bad place for your included breakfast.

Good value for money, large rooms in a beautiful old house, very helpful and polite staff. Excellent location, with access to the Radisson Hotel's facilities. Next door breakfast at Le Petit Cafe is very convenient.

Across street from Radisson and near swing bridge and tourism village. Not a safe area to venture out after dark. VERY poor area. Clean, good sized rooms. Staff helpful. Good restaurant just below and they give 7.50BZ for breakfast at Petit Cafe next door.

This is a really pretty colonial style house, the room we had was very cute with a lovely bathroom and hot shower. The chap on front desk was lovely and the wifi was really strong too which is always a plus. Lots of tv channels available if you need them and the breakfast coupon is very generous for the bakery...

For our first time in Belize, we couldn't have picked out a better place to stay! The Great House was beautiful. We loved sitting on the balcony each morning enjoying our coffee and danishes. It was perfectly located in the city - conveniently close to the water taxis, tourist village and the sea. It included continental breakfast each morning which...

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...
