We were welcomed by members of the owner's family and they all seemed to have a good, family-style rapport with the staff. The ladies in the kitchen even agreed to demo the preparation of our favourite dishes. The rooms were well equipped with electricity available at key points in the day. There were cosy hammocks on the charming terraces for... More

This review is based purely on the kindness of slightly eccentric but ever the English gentleman, Colin. Guyana is geared to the wealthy tourist and as a backpacker I found it difficult to find affordable accommodation. Upon arrival at Rock View, Colin realised my predicament and was generous to put me up in a manner I could afford. Colin and... More

A surprisingly good establishment well off the beaten track run by a slightly eccentric English expat. He and his staff provide a great personal service with nice touches like a free "happy half-hour" before dinner. The standard of meals provided was well in excess of my expectations. The hotel has an airstrip alongside it.

Colin and his team run an excellent if not slightly off the wall establishment deep in the heart of Southern Guyana. We stayed an all to brief one night but thoroughly enjoyed the tranquil atmosphere of Rock View taking in the most welcome pool, the nature walk and some excellent food and company. The rooms are well furnished with excellent... More

I spent 2 nights here as part of a tour with Wilderness Explorers. All meals and tours were included. The lodge is located right next to the Annai airstrip and easy to get to from Georgetown. It is also right off the road between Georgetown and Lethem. The lodge and grounds are absolutely beautiful and so comfortable it is hard... More

Stayed here for two nights in the middle of trip through Guyana. It is a nice place to take a break and relax. The one issue I had was that the staff could of been a bit more informative about things to do with your time. The advertised swimming pool was out of commission and on a two week trip... More

We stayed 3 nights on a bird watching holiday. What to say in addition to the great bird watching particularly the Burrowing Owl. It truly is an oasis in the outback. Beautifully layed out, great accomodation, tasty food (much grown on site) and drink, especially the rum punches/ caiparinia with home roasted cashew nuts. Everybody was charming and helpful and...
