Historical building with lots of character. Rooms good and location central and safe. Radisson on same site provides dinning options in a town with not much to offer. Hotel downside: reception is on 1st floor with no lift. steep steps, our room on second floor with no lift, steep steps.

We have stayed in the Great House 3 times. It is a lovely facility but room 6 is noisy from air conditioning from hotel next to it. Stayed in room 16, amazing, room 2 very nice but would not stay in #6 again

Unexpected “extra person” charge upon arrival. We never found the pool. The property is lovely and the restaurant downstairs is perfect

There was a private party going on in the bar/restaurant just below our room went on until after midnight. Very disappointed no effort made to quiet them down.was told this happens a few times per month

Highly recommended
Fantastic hotel! Beautiful facility, perfect location, gracious service. It's like staying with your grandmother, if your grandmother had a mansion steps from the water in Belize City. It's a magical experience to wake up at sunrise and step out on the veranda among the palm trees. The breakfast at Le Petit Cafe next door is great too.

Pleasant stay
The service was great and everyone is very friendly. There is a place to park on the property, if you are renting a car. They offer continental breakfast, but I was not able to take advantage of it. There is no pool on the property, but I was able to go to the Radisson hotel across the street and use thier pool for $20 (USD). The Radisson has two pools one of which has a bar and grill. I had no problem using either. The hotel is about 20-25 minutes (driving) away from the airport and a 5 minute walk to the water taxi, in case you want to go to San Pedro or Caye Caulker islands. The water taxi terminal has some cafe and souvenier shops.
