I stayed at the Spencer Home for a couple of days in March. The room was great, with very nice furniture. It is very quiet as all of the rooms face a small garden, yet the location is very central. The price was quite decent. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, also with organizing a Taxi to my next... More

Friendly staff. Great location. Large comfy rooms with much needed aircon for the humid climate. The only downfall, the bathroom wasn't great. Huge room with just the sink in and then shower and toilet squished in a small room. Wifi only worked in common room. Overall great place to stay

We selected Spencer Home based on the Trip Advisor reviews for a day's stay for our family in the last leg of our holiday in Kerala. The only thing going for this place is its location, which is very central. Apart from this the rooms have no windows, the bathrooms have no shelves, the linen is not clean, the pillow... More

This guesthouse is cozy and pretty near perfect -- located right in the heart of the touristy Ft. Cochin but on a quiet street overlooking the parade grounds, with small but clean rooms well-appointed with comfy beds and mosquito nets (a MUST!), and a cute tropical garden and WiFi-enabled common room to relax in. There are also two very friendly,... More

This homestay is very well located and there ends the matter. The linen given is not freshly laundered,the toilets are makeshift arrangements where the geysers dont function. The Acs trip and there is no one to fix them. There is one staff who functions as the manager,cook etc. They serve only toast with tea or coffee for breakfast and if... More

After we looked at 'his' hotel and knocked it back he showed us to his friends hotel around the corner, Spencer Home. I was sold on the size of... More

We stayed at the Spencer home with 6 friends in October. From the initial greeting until our sad farewell we recieved very good service with comfortable accomodation. Even the non-ac rooms were very pleasant facing onto a small attractive garden with a shaded verandah area. The furnishings and original features of the house are well perserved and add to the...

I stayed for a night at Spencer. We accidentally stumbled upon this place while looking for a home stay at Kochi. This is at 9 pm. We were warmly welcomed inside by a senior gentleman who left his meal midway to speak to us. They have AC and non AC options at very reasonable pricing as compared to other options... More
