We were in Kochi on a bit of work but staying in Old Lighthouse made it into a vacation! The hotel has a great seaside location which made us feel we were in a small resort. We were in Room No 5 on the first floor so we had a view of the sea from the corridor in front of... More

This beachfront heritage property is the best place to enjoy a stay at Fort Cochin Beach. I've been there for 4 nights early this month. And enjoyed every bit of my staying here. Spacious rooms with wooden floor are well-furnished and very neat n clean. Be it local or continental, the foods are just superb here! The seaside restaurant is... More

One of very few hotels with a waterfront view, this hotel is the perfect upper-mid range hotel in Fort Cochin. A beautiful pool, spotless rooms, with character, and a lovely restaurant with superb tandoori prawns, and bar area (with wine) overlooking the sunsets and sea, it can't be beaten. Definitely a first choice for accommodation.

I enjoyed a ten night stay at this wonderful hotel February/March, and am planning to return in 2016. I visited the other major hotels in the area, however none of the view of the beach as they are based round internal courtyards apart from one which overlooks the shipping canal. There is a friendly relaxed atmosphere in the beautiful grounds.... More

I recently made a second visit to the Old Lighthouse Brisow Hotel in Fort Cochin, Kerala. I was looking forward to experiencing more of their warm hospitality - and was not disappointed.

I travelled to Kochi for work and as the work was in Fort Kochi I selected this beautiful hotel. The location is lovely. Rooms were nice and big. Special mention to the front desk team and the entire staff, always smiling and always willing to help. A recommended stay with your whole family.
