We stayed at Le Colonial for 3 nights in February on the last leg of our tour of Kerala and we were delighted in every way. We had stayed in some great hotels but this was by far the best. Smita and the two boys, Samesh and Vippin looked after our every need with charm and professionalism. The room was... More

Stayed two nights at this hotel at the beginning of a bike tour in Kerala. It was superb. The staff was curteous and professional. The grounds were lovely, the food was good and the rooms were very comfortable. It is a beautiful, historic hotel. I would surely recommend Le Colonial to any one.

I stayed 2 nights squeezed into a packed itinerary but to take full advantage it needed to be much longer. Fort Cochin is a place where you should take time to just wander and soak up the atmosphere, and in the hotel itself there are luxurious areas (lounge, library, verandah, courtyard pool area), where it would be nice to spend...

My family and I had a wonderful stay at Le Colonial, and would recommend to anyone who is considering visiting. The rooms are great, food excellent and above all the service offered by Smita and her team were unbeatable. From early morning breakfasts, organising trips and arranging taxis to rickshaws made our stay especially over new year really memorable. The... More

What a beautiful place. Ideally located in the heart of Fort Cochi, Le Colonial is fantastic place to relax after a day's sightseeing. The rooms and common areas are luxurious and the pool is a real bonus but what really makes this place is Smita and her team. They looked after us so well - booking trips and offering advice...

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.

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
