    Amazing Staff and Service

    This was the best hotel experience I’ve ever had! Yes, some of the decor is dated but it gives it a charming, cozy feel and it’s very functional. Everything worked very well. A/C blew very cold, the bed was comfortable and they offered a large variety of channels. While the hotel was charming and cozy, what set this hotel experience head and shoulders above anything else I’ve ever experienced was the staff! The sweetest, most polite, service oriented staff I’ve ever dealt with at a hotel. The star of this hotel are the people! I will never forget the experience. The lovely ladies in front were amazing, one lady just as nice as the next. The maintenance man, Gary, was extremely helpful! My wife loved him! We came across a few minor problems that I was unable to troubleshoot and every time Gary swooped in and saved the day.... making me look bad.... (hahaha). We decided to extend our trip and the supervisor offered us a great price to stay a few days longer. The location couldn’t be better! A very short walk to the water, a bakery next door, a restaurant below the hotel and a restaurant across the street at another hotel. The Great House is just that....Great! On our next next visit to Belize, we will definitely be staying at The Great House! My wife will probably wanna see Gary anyway.....(haha)

    LOVED the restaurant on the lower, first-floor level: The Hub. Trendy, imaginative decor with tasty Belizean dishes. The Great House entry is on the second floor (no elevator); stairs a bit challenging for us elderly folks. But they carried our bags, arranged airport transportation both arriving and departing. Warmly welcoming.

    The birds coming in to roost every evening. The Hub restuarant downstairs. The friendly taxi drivers around the corner. The comfort and cleanliness of the property. The unique old style building and the smallness of the overall property.

    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

    Great spot - we were attending a conference next door and this was a fantastic location. Walk to water taxi, food/drinks, meeting, etc. No pool and lots of stairs but clean and friendly. A little noisy overlooking the very nice bar area at the back when they had live music for Valentine's Day but wasn't too loud or late and did not detract from the overall stay. Would stay again if we need a place in Belize City!
