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

Cara Lodge - an island of civility and hospitality in Georgetown. The guest rooms are basic but very clean, great air conditioning and exceptionally comfortable. Internet service is very good and the hotel pulls in all USA media and networks on its cable TV system. Dining room is first class with highly attentive staff, while the hotel features a delightful... More

Love the atmosphere here! The staff make a point of knowing your name, so you always feel welcome when you arrive. The central courtyard is shaded, cool and great place to just hang and read for a while. The bottle restaurant serves excellent food, with variety on a weekly basis - missing from most hotels in the Caribbean. They recognize... More

The management has maintained this historic structure very well. This 3 story house has no elevator, which is why it's not handicapped friendly. But everything else is very good. Though it has limited social areas, it more than makes up for it with nightly activies and a good restaurant. The rooms are very clean, well maintained and simple. The staff... More

My family and I both dined and stayed at the Cara Lodge. The rooms where comfortable and clean. When stepping out the rooms you get the feeling that you are in Guyana. It's not like hotels in which you are enclosed into hallways and wall. There is nice seating outside of rooms in which you can enjoy the scenery and... More

I stayed at Cara Lodge for a few days in August and I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful, comfortable and affordable the hotel is. The historical charm and cleanliness of the place is inviting and relaxing. My room was comfortable, clean and the air conditioner felt really good. The staff were all very professional and helpful, especially Mr. Edwards,... More
