Our Home Away from Home in Guyana

Posted Sep 10, 2014
Pros: I loved the Sunday brunch with the Steel Pan musician, the delicious food Tina prepared and the great service Sandra provided with a smile, perfect!
Cons: I can't think of anything that could be improved. With the new wing of the hotel, the Herdmanston Lodge can cater to everyone's needs and desires.
Location: The hotel was conveniently located for many of the activities of the reunion and close to the heart of the city of Georgetown.
My husband and I traveled to Guyana for his high school reunion and the Herdmanston Lodge came highly recommended by family and friends, so we booked our 10 night stay with them. We arrived early in the morning after traveling all day on the day before (with delays in the airport along the way) and the staff was ready upon arrival to great and assure our comfort with our room assignment (we were upgraded to the new section later on that day). The staff was wonderful; everyone we encountered went out of their way to make our stay unforgettable. Keith and Dee made us feel like family. The young ladies at the front desk, as well as Damon and Damian were always available to call a taxi, bring ice to the room or provide any wish or need that we had including recommending a hospital emergency room to go to (my husband fell and hurt his leg). I can't say enough about this wonderful Lodge, it's efficient and friendly staff and it's clean, comfortable and cozy rooms. This will be our "home away from home" anytime we travel to Guyana and will be one of the reasons we look forward to our next visit.

Nice hotel in a quiet neighborhood

Posted Oct 2, 2013
Pros: It is cozy and the staff is very friendly
I spent four nights in an oasis of peace and tranquillity in an otherwise messy, dirty and chaotic town

Almost superb but not quite

Posted Jun 9, 2013
Given the lack of decent hotel beds in Georgetown this place is a stand-out. Work on a second extension with a further 18 bedrooms was proceeding during our visit. But if the hotel is to keep up standards it will need a sharp injection of energy: being told that several items are off the menu then finding the hotel has run out of any alcohol prompted us to eat out after a while. Still, it's quite and feels like a colonial time-warp at the moment with helpful friendly staff who will go out of their way to advise on trips.

Such a friendly staff

Posted May 26, 2013
Location: In a mixed residential and business district. I walked around the neighborhood several times. A short and cheap taxi ride to tourist spots.
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, which helped make my two day stay in Georgetown a nice one. I look forward to returning to Georgetown and I will stay at Herdmanston Lodge then, too.

A nice hotel with a homely feel

Posted Nov 23, 2012
Pros: homely feel. very spacious room. comfortable bed. very nice staff
Cons: lack of drawers in room
Location: a very nice area of Queenstown/Georgetown
The Lodge had a very homely feel about it. The staff made you feel welcome and almost one of the family which I found unusual for a hotel. The room was very large with good air con and a big veranda. There could have been more drawers to put away clothes. I would stay there again

The Herdmanston Lodge

Posted May 7, 2012
Pros: Room
Cons: Room service
The hotel is in good condition and my room was comfortable and spacious. The staff were very friendly and obliging. The reason I can't recommend the Herdmanston Lodge is because of the catering and room service. The quality of the food is good and, indeed, the owners are looking to make the hotel a venue for 'high'/'exclusive dining', but the basics aren't right. It is advised to order your meals 24 hours in advance. I found that, at times, it was necessary to 48 hrs in advance. And, even then, I didn't get my first choice and had to wait ages for room service. However, I will say the supervisors worked hard to put things right for me.
