We stayed at Old Light House Bristow for more than 2 nights. It was one of the best places that I have experienced in Fort Kochi. Clean room, excellent service, good food and most of all a breath taking view :) Suggestion: Improve Wifi Connection

Loved staying in this boutique hotel. The location has best of both the worlds, its quite and serene with beautiful grounds and pool, however you can even spend hours gazing into the bustle on the beach and observe the happy kite-flying locals. No other property in Fort Kochi has such a beautiful vantage point. We would sip our morning tea... More

We stayed here for three nights and had two rooms. The rooms are fantastisc. Big, beautiful, clean, nice bathrooms, high ceilings, lovely furniture.... You couldn't ask for anything more. Staff is also great! Fort Kochi is small, you can walk to the Chinese fishing nets in 10 minutes. From the hotel you look out at a beach where at night... More

Unimaginably unique stay next to beach. Walking in corridor is like walking on beach. Must come back to this Eden. Food is of high quality. Pool is perfect. Bathrooms are grand and luxurious. Visitors are welcomed with great hospitality. They even have US plug points. So close to exotic Fort Kochi enclave.

Without doubt this is the most romantic place to be in all of Fort Cochin. Facing the Arabian Sea with its perpetual breeze, but delicately hidden behind the greenery, the visitor is secluded from the hussle of the tourist hub at Fort Cochin, neverthless is a very short walk to all the enchantment of Fort Cochin. I was welcomed embarassingly... More
