Great Hotel - A Step Back in Tinme
The hotel was like stepping back in time to the colonial era. The staff and the service were outstanding. The location was within walking distance of many of the sites of Georgetown.

Good colonial style retreat
Good service. Comfortable rooms. Great pools. Good breakfast. Only downside is that the car park is quite a distance from the heritage building where our room was.

Lovely seafront stay and old world charm
Really helpful and friendly staff. Amazing gym overlooking the sea. You can use the pools from both wings but I liked the one at the old wing better. Really relaxing with a great view. The one in the new wing is a little weird with people having tea looking at you, and if you are the one having tea, you get water splashed on you from bad swimmers...

Had a great stay at the E and O in Georgetown
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay from the moment we arrived.We were upgraded upon arrival to a spacious suite in the annexe. Everything about this hotel more than lived up to expectations. Great food, facilities and friendly staff. As regular visitors to Georgetown my wife and I will definitely be coming back to the E and O.
