Get the most value out of your hotel
There is a fairly limited choice when it comes to cheap hotels in this city, because most of them are quite fancy. The grand Coastal hotel is the best of both worlds. It is relatively inexpensive while still offering a great experience. It is a ten minutes' drive from the city center and has only forty rooms, which makes for a quiet stay. It does, however, have a swimming pool and gym for your use. The kitchen serves food to cater for many different tastes, while also offering traditional flavors.
The Herdmanston Lodge is another great value for money. It is a three star hotel which also adjoins to a very well-known restaurant that serves great food. This cheap hotel can cater for you personally as it offers room service for all guests.
Most of the Georgetown hotels are surprisingly luxurious and you will definitely feel the difference here. We have to start with the Guyana Marriott Hotel. This hotel is fairly new and has been designed for those with comfort in mind. This is a large hotel so you can expect to be mingling with all types of people here, especially in the pool area and the gym. It is located besides the sea so you can enjoy those lovely views across the water.
Hotels in Georgetown can also become a hub for local residents to gather. The Pegasus hotel is a prime example. It holds live music evenings regularly for you to enjoy and there is a large patio area outside the hotel for dining and relaxing, right next to the pool. The place will come alive on a Saturday night as locals come to enjoy good food and music. Perfect for business or leisure, the hotel has Wi-Fi and conference rooms, as well as free parking and room service as usual.
The independent hotels
There are some very tempting choices for independent hotels in Georgetown, the first of which is Cara Lodge. This British colonial style building is full of warmth and charm. It doesn't boast a swimming pool or vibrant nightlife, but it makes up for it in other ways. It was constructed in 1840 as two separate houses, eventually becoming the home of the first Lord Mayor of Georgetown. This hotel offers much of the city's historic culture alongside modern comfort and great service. The Bottle restaurant is where you'll be dining here, and has been hailed as Georgetown's best. The Millenium Manor hotel is a small gem amongst the others. This hotel only has fifteen rooms in total. However, the rooms are lovingly maintained and very large. This venue is great for birthday parties and other functions alongside your holiday. The small size of the hotel contributes to the feeling that you are being served personally as a guest and not just another pair of feet.
