Modern rooms in an elegantly restored colonial building in a quiet part of the
city, just behind the Southern Foreshore and a block from the historic House
of Culture - formerly the British colonial governor's residence - and St.
John's Anglican Cathedral. A really comfortable and well-managed hotel, with a genteel, quiet ambience and highly recommended. Thereís a good restaurant and bar (for guests only)and the helpful owners can arrange tours. Peter Eltringham, February 2003

Four very spacious and extremely comfortable bed and breakfast rooms in an impressively-maintained guest house on the sea front just north of the city centre. Each room has a different theme, e.g. Belizean Room, Indian Room and so on. TV, a well-stocked bookshelf and an immaculate private bathroom. All have sea views and two have a private balcony; smoking is allowed in the rooms. Air-conditioning is being installed but the fans and sea breezes keep the place cool. The owners, Ward and PJ Grant, are extremely helpful and informative and also offer massage and manicure service. PJ likes to cook and when she does guests are in for a treat. US$65 single/US$80 double, including a Continental breakfast and evening cocktail or beer. Excellent website. Peter Eltringham, February 2003
