Walton's was a great place to stay, fantasic hosts and good, clean rooms. Although in a busy (nowhere is busy really) street, rooms are set in a pretty courtyard which is quiet and relaxing. Christopher was very helpful and a mine of local knowledge and will do anything to assist you in your stay. Breakfast was nice but would have... More

We spend a few nights at Walton's and it was perfect. The room was really clean and quiet. The breakfast in the morning was very good with fresh fruits. The location of the house is very convenient for Kochi. Also, Walton, his wife and the personel were very friendly. And the room was really cheap for the great service we... More

Calling this a homestay is a stretch. It’s basically a hotel built in the same complex as the hosts’ home. You don’t get personalized service. For example, Walton first tried to find us a taxi when we needed one to get to the train station, but when his regular pool of drivers turned out to all be booked, we had... More

This homestay is in a perfect location and we enjoyed an excellent room situated at the back of the homestay overlooking the courtyard garden. The room was well appointed and very clean with a good bathroom. The breakfast was simple but exactly what we wanted - fresh fruit, toast, eggs cooked to order and all served in the kitchen. Mr...

We were so lucky to find Mr. Walton's delightful little hotel. The rooms are spacious and spotless - smartly decorated, and an incredible value! Mr. Walton delivers superior customer service. He was so helpful in assisting us with restaurant, tourist, and taxi services. Room rates are inclusive of a marvelous communal breakfast. There's a darling little garden full of chirpy... More

Walton's home stay is brilliant. The rooms are very clean and spacious, with a seating area outside and a lovely garden to sit in and relax. Breakfast is included in the price. As Mr Walton say's a good breakfast means a good day. This home stay has a book shop inside and one next door. It is on princess street... More

I have stayed in 3 places in Kochi (due to the fact that Walton's was fully booked, and I had to relocate). I realised that Walton's is the ONLY place to stay; it cannot be beaten in terms of value for money and service. A great place at a great price - don't even given this place a second thought....stay... More

I stayed at Walton´s twice, once at the start of my visit to Kerala and then again at the end. The location is perfect, right on Princess Street but set back so it´s quiet. I found everything to be of a very high standard. The room was big, very clean and had a nice feel to it. The bed was... More

Walton's was our first experience of Indian accommodation and hospitality, we were not disappointed. After a long flight from the UK we arrived at the homestay and were instantly made to feel very welcome. Mr Walton was the perfect host and happy to do all he could to make us comfortable. Throughout our three night stay he often checked with... More
