We prefer "boutique" hotels with local character but with services beyond what an inn or a bread and breakfast can offer. So glad friends recommended Cara Lodge! We stayed in a large, comfortable, well-appointed second floor corner room. Traveling throughout the Caribbean as much as we do, the impeccably clean, mosquito-free, air conditioned environment was a joy. As was the updated modern bathroom.
Also loved the decor and furnishings, which we were told are all locally produced by Guyanese designers.
Front desk, restaurant and housekeeping staff provided whatever extra touches we wanted promptly and with a great attitude (extra towels, drinks sent up, walking tour information, etc.). We really liked the historic character and that the owners often stop by the restaurant.
We will be back at Cara Lodge any time our travels bring us back to Georgetown.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
