The Great House
13 Cork Street | PO Box 85, Belize City, Belize Belize

Originally built as a family home, this wonderful structure still provides the warmth and comfort reminiscent of the early colonial times of Belize. Spacious verandas at the front and back of the house allow you to relax and let go amidst the soothing embrace of the Caribbean breezes. Only 100 meters from the Caribbean Sea, 12 miles from largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere, 25 miles from the sites of the Mayan Civilization, and a 10 minute walk from the city center.

The colonial heritage and ambience of the property are faithfully preserved in all of the twelve guestrooms. Each is individually color coordinated with a host of tasteful and comfortable appointments.

Beautiful 3-story plantation house with Caribbean views, shuttle airport taxi, close to express bus pickup at Swing Bridge. A good restaurant--The SMOKY Mermaid downstairs with outdoor tables in a jungle garden

We spent the first night of our 10-day anniversary celebration at The Great House. During the evening my husband leaned on a glass coffee table to pick up a remote and the glass fell off the base and shattered. It fell onto an area rug below the table, but there were glass shards all over. My husband went to tell the host at the front desk. The host had a broom (but no dust pan), no vacuum or mop and the front desk person said there was no way until the morning to clean up the glass. The ho... Read more

Cool clean and tidy is this upscale old home come hotel. Opposite the radisson it oozes old world charm. It is situated in a dilapidated part of town but is actually newly renovated and comfy. Lag rooms and hot powerful showers make this the best stay in Belize. Alas no restaurant but a few excellent locals make this a Non issue.

We did a week on a Aggressor IV livaboard and stayed here on Friday night before our late fight out on Saturday. Stated rates are about 10% less than the Radisson (next door) but we asked for a better rate and ended up about 30% less than the Radisson. The place has a nice character, good beds, hot shower and is a 5 minute walk from the dive boat docks. As a bonus, they supply a voucher for excellent coffee and baked goods at a little place next door.

We absolutely loved this hotel! The staff were very accommodating and provided us with some little snacks in our room! The hotel was clean and safe! We would definitely stay here again! They provide you with a breakfast voucher for the little cafe next store. Really enjoyed our stay!

For a hundred year home in Belize it is in amazing condition. Our room was quite, had excellent AC and the decor was perfectly pleasing. Fast WIFI everywhere. There was also a porch swing and porches that wrapped all away around each floor for beautiful panoramic views. The only I found was the restaurant on the first floor. I don't think it was owned by the hotel, but we felt like we were bothering the servers just to get food and drinks. We also stayed at the Radisson across the street(don't... Read more

If you HAVE to stay in Belize then do so but what we learned was that there are water taxis that go out to the island every hour or so. Get on one of those instead of staying in Belize City. There is not much to see in Belize City, as the taxi drivers and tour guides will tell you, be in your room by dark. The unemployment rate in Belize is 35% and that has made Belize City kind of dangerous.

We were satisfied with the accommodations. The hotel was clean. The staff was very nice. It is a very old building and not built to today's standards. Just be aware. For whatever reason, the people next door were up all night and as they walked back and forth, the bed in our room moved up and down. Kept me up all night. They charged a premium price online and then wanted more money for my 14 year old son after we arrived. The a/c barely worked and there was not a fan in the room. The T... Read more

This is a lovely antebellum mansion style hotel a few minutes walk from the cruise ship tourist village. We booked a junior suite which was a lovely space with a king bed. There is a continental breakfast included and a decent restaurant and bar in the hotel. The food was good, the key lime pie was amazing. We arrived a day late (American Airlines) and they sent a letter to the booking company asking for a refund on our behalf.

Decent hotel with no restaurant for breakfast (needed in this area). Spacious room but quite old. Costs almost as much as the Radison next to it and offers a lot more basic standard. If its price was lower it could be good value for money.
