GREAT HOUSE was wonderful. For $100 a night, we had a huge room with a king-size bed, beautiful accessories, sitting area with a cable TV, a remote-controlled fan, hair dryers, and coffeemakers. The room was gorgeous, with mahogany floors and a real old world feel to it. Originally someone’s mansion built in 1927, there was certainly an air of elegance, from the rooms to the outside colonial-style whitewashed boards.
It’s located in the Fort George area, just $20 by taxi from the international airport. There’s a really nice restaurant and bar attached called the Smokey Mermaid, which has all the different Belikin beers, as well as cocktails and decent food
It wasn’t the best food I had ever had, but the restaurant has an indoor area as well as an outdoor garden complete with these tree-house tables, which were fun to eat at overlooking everyone else.
