This is an elegant colonial oasis in the middle of grubby, noisy Georgetown, with dark, glowing wooden floors and plantation shutters. Food and service are both good. Most rooms look inwards to a cool, airy courtyard. My only complaint would be that they are small, with few drawers for storage. Fine for one, not for two.

Very nice, cool, comfortable hotel in the center of Georgetown. Lots of space. Good food served as well and room service! I strongly recommed the Cara Burger. Breakfast is also reasonable however, the breakfast sausages served are franfurters and not links. The staff were happy to provide a DVD player as well! Pretty neat! Worth considering for a return visit

This was a fantastic hotel to stay in. Built in beautiful hardwood, it is a cool oasis in the middle of a humid Georgetown. Enjoy a cold beer in the garden or have a great meal in the hotel restaurant.

This house converted to a hotel has very small room,may be just enough for one.Not at all enough for two.Rooms are basicslly clean.Service is also good.Rooms are noisy at nights as the bar is in the courtyard and customers talking loud.Food at the restaurant is good.

We were with a group staying at Cara Lodge so we never had a choice in where we wanted to stay but this was quite a nice place. it is in an old colonial type building but quite large and lovely. We arrived very late at night but there were people to meet us and help us get our luggage... More

I enjoyed the 2 nights I spent at Cara Lodge on either end of a remote trip to the interior of Guyana. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the hotel itself had a lot of character. The on-site restaurant had very good food and cold Banks beer. I will definitely stay here again when I return to Guyana in... More

My family stayed here on our way into the Guyana interior, and found the lodge to be charming! The rooms are beautiful, secure, and air conditioned. The staff was very helpful, and remembered my kids every time. We ate at the restaurant for several meals. Breakfast was ample, and with a large variety to choose from. The lobby is beautiful.

Stayed at the Cara lodge many times from 2009. Love the atmosphere. Prefer my meals there in the restaurant to any other place, I know it's healthy and fresh daily. Rooms are clean ac is always working. Good clean bathrooms. It's quiet in a nice area in Georgetown. Recommend this hotel to any one wanting to have a worry free... More

Pros: Beautiful hotel, friendly staff, in the heart of Georgetown, currency exchange at the front desk. Cons: I felt it was on the pricier side and I did not enjoy the onsite restaurant at all. I tried it several times for both breakfast and dinner and I'm sorry but I will not eat there again.
