The history aficionado will appreciate a stay at Cara Lodge, Guyana. It is one of the oldest and grandest structures in Georgetown, and is the best known and most popular hotel in Guyana. Cara Lodge was built in the 1840s and originally consisted of two houses. It has a long and romantic history and was the home of the first Lord Mayor of Georgetown. Over the years, the property has been visited by many dignitaries including King Edward VII who stayed at the house in 1923. He was of course later to abdicate and marry the American Wallis Simpson. Other dignitaries have included President Jimmy Carter in 1996, HRH Prince Charles in April 2000, HRH Prince Andrew in 2004 and Mick Jagger in 2005. This magnificent home turned hotel offers the tradition and nostalgia of a bygone era, complete with service and comfort of the most luxurious of hotels, all in a most congenial family atmosphere. Our signature dining establishment, the Bottle Restaurant, has been hailed as the best restaurant in the capital. It is open for lunch and dinner everyday, except Sundays. At Cara Lodge, we have worked hard to create a setting that is the perfect marriage of old world charm and contemporary comfort – ideal for the traveller wishing to experience a taste of Guyana’s past, and the business person wishing modern-day amenities.

They boast they're the greatest hotel in Guyana, where royalties have stayed. Well, I hope the royalties didn't expect four star standard, such as super service, a swimming pool and wonderful food. The house is very beautiful, certainly has old world charm, with colonial

This hotel was built back in the 1840s and it has retained a lot of its character while offering a very comfortable room to stay in. The rooms were large with air conditioning and ceiling fans as well as mossie screens on the windows and wooden shutters so all very cool and

A nice place with a beautiful courtyard and staff that aim to please. Yes it is an older building but has charm. Only caveat, there is no elevator and all guest rooms up at least 1 level so if you cannot climb stairs it might not be the best place for you.
