Le Colonial is a wonderful property, steeped in history, providing a peaceful place to relax and recharge the batteries after a long journey, while having the hustle and bustle of Fort Cochi to explore on the doorstep. The warm welcome and 'just right' hosting of Vippin and Samesh, alongside delicious food and truly beautiful decor made this the perfect start... More

When one stays in the 'oldest house in Asia' one might expect something sad and tatty. Well, that is certainly not true of The Colonial! A beautiful property with incredibly interesting architecture and furniture, paintings and memorabilia to investigate while it feels warm, homely and welcoming. This ambience is in no small way down to the team who manages this... More

Le Colonial left a lasting impression. It's a beautiful colonial house dating back to 1506. The rooms ( Viceroy and Jan Van Spall) have fantastic balconies and the rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The common areas are fabulous, comfortable with some great art to view depicting colonial times. The food is excellent and staff make every effort, offering seconds... More

This is the perfect place to stay to enjoy the Fort area in a wonderful colonial building. The size of the property makes it feel like a home rather than a hotel and as this is the end of their season we were the only guests.
