Beautiful rooms

Rooms are beautiful old colonial style with hardwood floors. Be aware that all are on 2nd & 3rd floor with no elevator. On the 1st floor is a restaurant (the Smokey Mermaid) and a bar/ wine bar which is beautiful to sit at outside if the weather is nice.

beautiful hotel

We stayed on Caye Caulker for the week and stayed overnight at the Great House Inn before we left Belize. The staff was very friendly and helpful . The room was huge! The only down side is that in the room next to us, the people were VERY heavy walkers. We actually wondered for a minute if there was a floor above us that we were hearing walkers, but there was no floor above us!

Awesone staff, bldg needs update

First, we would stay here again. The staff saves the day. Friendly, great help, fast response. Super accommodating. The place is very old, and probably hasn't been properly cleaned since it was new, 100 years ago. If we do return, we'll alert them that the room and the bathroom, especially, must be cleaned before we arrive. Separate restaurant on the ground level - really good food. Ambiance is plastic chairs, etc., but well worth eating there.

Nice accomodations

Well appointed (albeit 1960's era bathroom) and comfortable room in grand old home converted to small hotel. Staff was exceptionally nice and like most Belizeans, very polite and outgoing. Sand on the floor around the bed and in the bathroom apparently overlooked by cleaners. Unfortunately, hardwood floors and jalousie windows tend not to be good noise attenuators. Location is very safe and within walking distance (i.e. 15 minutes) to town center, which is reminiscent of most small sub-Sahara African cities.. Note that the restaurant is not part of the hotel and that staff acted bored and inconvenienced by patrons, either at the bar or dinner table. Although there were only two other parties, the evening dinner waitress incorrectly served two out of three selections and was quite miffed at being called out on the errors. Although high priced, food quality was somewhat ordinary.

Convenient and Clean

The Greast House Inn is very conveniently located just on the edgfe of time sand opposite the big Radisson Hotel. You have a choice of 4 places to eat within a 2 minute walk so no taxi's required just to eat. You can also easily walk to the water taxi dock for the ride to the Cays. The rooms are are clean with a good size bathroom, but be advised that the rooms are on the second & third level with no elevator. Finally I've stayed here twice now and it offers very good value for money including free WIFI.

Very nice place to stay in down town Belize City

with Belize City being not so much of hit, this hotel is a really nice exemption and we had a wonderful time there! The location is great, the staff is very friendly and very helpful and there is beautiful garden restaurant with a bar attached to it. Great food for decent pricing - definitely will come back!
