Stayed in this beautiful hotel for a couple of days in the first week of February along with my wife. The hotel is situated on a large manicured property overlooking a marina and a shimmering river. The rooms are pretty decent for the price and seems to be well maintained. Some rooms are facing the beautiful river and other are... More

Bolgatty Island resort is a three storied usual building. Nothing great. You get marine view but it is only backwater. Take room in Bolgatty palace. Nice amazing ambience. But there is no water view. Palace has swimming pool, restaurant spa and places to relax. Island resort has recreation room with carrom, snooker and table tennis and nice gym. But all... More

Wow this place is nothing like the positive reviews I read! It's a sad hotel that could be ok. Run down, strange staff I think they are employed by some government tourist scheme. The loo in our room ran all night, so they fixed it - didn't flush at all. Stay somewhere else.

We stayed for 2 nights at Bolgatty Palace hotel. The reason for choosing this hotel was the feedback we had received earlier from friends about the property being one of the best in Cochin. The property is definitely very nice, but the hotel rooms and service were absolutely poor. The rooms, though spacious, were poorly maintained, with things coming off... More

We stayed here for 1 night on Dec 22, 2014. This is a heritage resort located in an excellent surroundings, with a marina adjacent to it. You could take a ferry or auto-rickshaw (3 wheeler equivalent of tuk-tuk) to go to the shopping and eating places in town. We stayed in the Marina suite room and this was spacious, comfortable...

Well it is excellent and bad both! The hotel or should call it a resort offers excellent stay. The ambience and open area around is among the best in the world for the price paid. The rooms are reasonably well equipped having functional air-conditioning, clean bath rooms, tv having huge choice of channels, tea/coffee making equipments, good sleep quality etc.... More
