Coningsby Inn
Ranked #18 of 26 Belize City B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 February 2011

The room was spartan, sheets were so worn out, like gauze, holes in quilt. A resident dog barked outside our room most of the night and the aircon was so noisy we couldn't use it. Food was expensive for what we had and the room badly need paint. Ceiling had black mold. This was a $20.00 room not the $65.00 we paid.

We were diverted to Belize when the Volcano Pacaya erupted and we could not get any flights out while vacationing in Guatemala (The airports shut down for 3 days). When the bus arrived in Belize City, we decided to trust a taxi driver who gave a few suggestions and then waited with us at the Coningsby for the owner to return from the Post Office and help us. Owner Jeannete was very helpful and booked us a room. She was quite interested in getting us info on tourist places, although she didn't offer to let us see her quidebook til our last day there. We were in room 9 and I hope she has someone fix the A/C unit in there as it seems to be on its last legs; there are several bits of paper jammed in the sides to keep it from vibrating off the wall. Hopefully they will get some new bedding: the sheets on our bed were stained or torn and mended and did not fit well. Remember the advice given to tourists while you are in Belize City: do not wear any jewelry and get off the streets before evening.
There is construction going on next to the Coningsby and it seems some workers live there as well; they started working at 7 am even on weekend days.

My partner and I stayed here for one night in may before flying out of the country.
We wanted to stay in the hotel across the road, but was fully booked and to be honest I think i would rather take a chance sleeping on the street!! It was the worst hotel i have stayed in, and I have stayed in some dumps before. The whole hotel was dated and tired looking, the room was dirty, damp and smelt, the Sheets smelt like they hadn't been changed.... ever!
The air con didn't work properly and was noisy, the dog that lives outside of the rooms spent most of the night barking.
On a small plus the staff were nice and helpful and didn't seem to realize that they worked somewhere so bad.
But all in all a very shocking experience, and i strongly advise pre booking somewhere in Belize city because you do not want to end up here!!

I stayed at the Coningsby Inn for 4 nights recently when I went to Belize and really enjoyed myself. The staff are very sweet and helpful and the food is great! It's very affordable and clean (and I'm very picky!) and they will go out of their way to help you plan little adventures. It's in Belize City but it's tucked away from the noise and chaos of downtown and about 3 minutes away from the water. You can easily walk to several restaurants, shops, bars, the bus station and the water taxi station from here. One of the biggest perks, in my opinion, was that I could leave my hotel and explore the city on foot (it's small but there is a lot to see just w/in Belize City). The picture attached is the view from behind the hotel of the sea. Most of my evenings were spent on the upstairs porch laughing and drinking w/the other hotel guests. If you stop by be sure and say hi to Roger, the resident watchdog.

This is not the cleaniest hotel, but the service is good, the place is safe (even tough it's in a bad neighborhood) and it's close to the banks, taxi ferry, bus station, restaurants, cheap shops and colonial cultural buildings. Dont' miss Brid's Isle for dinner. Beware if you're a light sleeper, dogs in the neighborhood bark all night long!!!
