After a hectic work schedule, my wife and I wanted to take a break in Kerala. We invited two of our friends from Chambery, France to accompany us. The first impression was our stay in OLH Bristow. It was mind blowing. The property, the ambience, the peace and quiet brought to us a serenity that we wanted to come back... More

We stayed here in February 2015 for 4 nights. When we checked in we were surprised by an upgraded suite room with a wine bottle and fruit basket and our room was decorated pretty well. Thanks to Ms Shabnam who made this surprise unforgettable and all arrangements done prior our visit. We had a lovely meal at the Bristows bistro.... More

We were a group of women, a college reunion of sorts, who stayed here for a night. I am so glad we chose this place. The hotel is in a quiet lane in Fort kochi, a short walk from most attractions, cafes, the beach, fishing nets and the ferry terminal. We spent most of the day in the property lazing... More

We had just one and a half (we arrived at 4am!) brief nights in the Old Lighthouse as the first part of our Kerala trip and wished we had stayed an extra night. The property is a lovely heritage hotel with dark wood in the colonial style and the room was huge with a great view out to the pool... More

We stayed at Old Lighthouse Bristow for 3 days and had a great experience. The hotel is located at the heart of Fort Kochi and there are lots of interesting places within walking distance from the hotel (St Francis Church, the popular Kashi Art Cafe , David Hall Art gallery etc) We stayed at one of the ground floor beach...

I had very good service for a three-night stay. The staff arranged a courier (DHL I think) for a pack of books that could not be carried by air. Alas (this has nothing to do with the hotel) a pack of medicines is waiting in a local shop because the Post Office would not accept it.

Very charming place with a lot of history. Fantastic location if you are keen to explore Fort Kochi. The standard category rooms are spacious with a great bathroom. Absolute value for Money. The breakfast is excellent. However, they need to better service, there is a lot of scope in that.

Lovely old building with large and well decorated rooms. The pool was a delight during the hot Kochi days! The restaurant and garden chairs overlooking the Arabian Sea were simply gorgeous. Such a fantastic location, so close to everything but also slightly to the side so you can have time out by the pool. The room, bathroom and beds were... More
