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.

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.

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.

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.
