I stayed at this hotel in January 2015 and the rooms were lovely and clean. The food excellent and the staff were accommodated my dietary requirements. The location was very central. I broke my ankle during my stay and the staff went out of their way to help me. The hotel manager was also extremely kind and ensured that I... More

Stayed and ate there a few times. Clean comfortable rooms, central location, friendly staff, great restaurant. Place with a character. Because of the size - not too large - this place provides very friendly atmosphere. Always worth checking rates directly with the hotel. We got much better rate this way.

This hotel is one of the better places in Georgetown - not cheap but quite elegant. Efficient aircon, fan, nice bathroom - everything worked well. We had lunch and dinner in their dining room - the food was excellent and portions generous.

The décor and the arrangment was excellent in the hall. The rooms I visited as a travel agent looks comfortable,but did not stayed... More

We stayed here twice during our journey through Guyana. The first time we got a King room (#211) in the new section. It was a fine room but did not have much character. However, it was a corner room and was very quiet although it had limited views. There is an on-site bar and restaurant (The Bottle) that I will... More

I've had the pleasure of staying at the Cara Lodge Hotel in Georgetown twice in the past two months. For a city where hotel options are rather limited, the Cara Lodge Hotel was a pleasant surprise. As an old wooden frame house built around a central courtyard, it has much more the ambiance of a guest house than a hotel.... More

I first visited this old house in 1970 when it belonged to a venerable Guyanese Family. They shared this spacious house with local artists whose works were displayed with elegance and style. The house is inviting and now well suited for a Guest House. My wife and I stayed here because I knew the property and that it was well... More

Very nice and confortable. All you need; room cleaned daily, shower and toilet clean and clean. Restaurant prices quit high but what do you want, you are invoiced while coming from abroad. Reception service correct and hotel taxi service available - not included to the hotel price already quite high. An ol and traditional house with a huge taste of... More
