It is a restored colonial house with style. The location is excellent very close to the shore, quiet and 5 min. walk to the ferry station. There is a cozy restaurant on the ground floor which does not belong to the hotel. One can get breakfast there as well as other meals. Next door, there is a to-go cafe with good expresso coffee and croissants. Across the street is Radisson Hotel with restaurants and a pool-bar, which is very convenient. The room is very large and well-decorated (colonial), and the bathroom is functional. The bed was very large and comfortable (king room). There are balcony floors running over 3 sides of the building with tables, benches and chairs, where one can relax and read. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful.
There is no lift in the house.
Old colonial style house, breezy terrace, nice room
Lots of stairs, especially to best rooms on 3rd floor. Raddison opposite now blocks the view
Beautifully converted British colonial house near the water, beautiful grounds, spacious suites, porches and verandas. Lovely garden restaurant and bar - very tropical, very “Belizian”. Gracious staff, very safe.
Can’t think of a thing.
There was really good service in restaurant.
Windows couldn't been shut, so there was much noise from outside.
Not What I Expexted.
The property has a great location, free parking, and a easy, welcoming check-in. It is close to some of the better restaurants in Belize City, along with a quick walk to the Caye Ferries.
The room was uncomfortably unclean. From hair around the sink and on towels, to visible stains on the sheets, and a musty, unclean smell, I had a very uneasy stay and a restless night. Further, there was a significantly slow drain in the bathtub, resulting in the tub being 33% full only a few minutes after turning on the shower. Some may not mind this, but it is my biggest hotel pet peeve. I would not book this property again, or recommend it based on my night there.
