The Great House Inn

Boutique hotelsHotels
Best boutique hotels in Belize

The Great House Inn is located in the historic Fort George Area: The Fort George area, a peninsula ringed by Marine Parade Boulevard and Fort Street, is one of the most pleasant in Belize City. Meander in the neighborhood and you’ll pass some impressive homes and buildings, including The Great House Inn, now the only colonial guest house.

The Baron Bliss Memorial and Fort George Lighthouse stand guard over it all. Towering over the coastline and facing the Belize Harbor, the Fort George Lighthouse was built as part of the memorial for Baron Bliss, Belize’s greatest benefactor. In fulfillment of his dying wish and financed with the generous proceeds he left the country, the tall structure was erected next to his tomb and memorial. While the public cannot enter the lighthouse, it remains an important, historic landmark in Belize City and is easy to spot while touring the Fort George area.

The views from there also make for a nice photo op. The sea breeze can be pleasant here, and you can glimpse cayes and ships offshore. Once you round the point, the road becomes Marine Parade and runs past the Radisson Fort George Hotel and Memorial Park, a grassy salute to the 40 Belizeans who lost their lives in World War I.

Although one can only picture the original interior with it spiral stairway and large polished mahogany tables, the exterior with a few modifications reflects closely the original architecture. It is believed that this grand home was built on land created from coral rock, mahogany chips that were the waste that occurred when loggers squared the wood for shipment and as rumor has it the rum bottles from our deceased baymen.
