They did not clean the room and bathroom every day. And they are doing remodeling in the yard . So early in the morning they make too much noise.

My lady and I very much enjoyed our one night here. We liked climbing the staircase, but I was still amazed at the porter who appeared and hauled *both* of our heavy suitcases up to our landing all at once by himself. He disappeared before we could tip him. As for amenities, it helps that the Radisson Fort George is right next and across the street. The lady at the front desk was friendly and very knowledgeable about the area and shared good information. The room was woody and reeked of character, though perhaps its elegance was greater in the past.

This historic hotel is very comfortable and the staff are helpful. You can walk or take a taxi to many places and walk to the sea and the Belize sign at the point. We felt safe here. It is a short walk to the water taxi.

Beautiful colonial guesthouse with helpful staff. The safe was not working but got fixed right away. Nice porch swing outside and close to ocean for a quick walk along the waterfront.

Cute, historical place where the staff make you feel great. Arrived early and they took us right in. They helped with advice for the area and arrangements. Definitely would return to this place

Love the charm of a classic house look. Surprisingly we got not just a large bottle of water, package of cookies and 2 bananas for each day. For breakfast we got voucher to pick out what we want from the cafe, downstairs.

It is updating the rooms but needs an elevator and a pool.

The hotel was nice, close to the beach. The staff were accomadating and friendly. There were multiple bugs in our room, harmless ones but there were a lot of them.

The Great House was perfectly situated in the Fort George area of Belize City, very close to the water taxis and tourist area of the city. The hotel room was perfect! We actually stayed in the room that was advertised on the website - the blue room. It had a lot of old world character - perfect for a bed and breakfast. They upgraded us from a queen to a king and made us feel so welcome there! The staff couldn't be nicer! We sat every morning on the balcony and just relaxed. One of the best things about our stay was the continental breakfast they provided next door at the Le Petit Cafe. It was wonderful sipping coffee and having wonderful pastries on our balcony watching colorful birds fly by.

The Great House is a charming old building, but there is really no place to go to relax. Our room was big and roomy but not much privacy since it was opening onto the main landing. There is no elevator so you have to get some help to get your luggage to the second floor. We were recommended not to go out at night because of the close proximity to local crime areas.

The walk along the water front is very nice and there are some good restaurants. Not too much else to do unless you take an excursion out of the city.

Was in Belize City for work and play and glad I choice the Great Hotel. Fantastic service, nice experience, safe area of the city and right across from the Radison Hotel. Stepped outside in the morning on the third floor deck area to the sun and ocean breeze. Whole place feels like the Islands. Not much to do in the area but can easily take a cab or short walk to Tourism Village and the main downtown area of Belize City.

Stayed there one night. Rooms are great, staff is helpful, air conditioning was cold.

Very nice. Different from your average chain hotel.

We decided to stay at this location for one night prior to leaving Belize. It is a nice hotel with a lot of history. Close to the water and Cruise ship port. This was a good place to go shopping.

Thank you for taking the time out to rate us. Our rooms are clean every day unless a no disturb sign was place on the door by guests. Unfortunately we are doing some renovations but it should be finished soon. We do apologizes for any inconveniences this may caused. If your travels bring you back to Belize we hope that you would choose to stay with us once again and give us another opportunity to accommodate you especially now, being that renovations are over.
