Old Lighthouse Bristow Hotel..... the name needs no introduction. The best and the only hotel in Fort Kochi without a doubt.

An excellent hotel with an elegant and homelike atmosphere, we stayed here for 2 weeks for the third time. Wonderfully situated with a view to the Arabian Sea. An absolutely professional and friendly staff, and a marvellous restaurant with international and indian/Keralan cooking. Well tended and beautifull garden and pool to enjoy (Avoid svimming at the nearby small Kochi Beach.... More

It's a characterful property in an ideal location - with views of the sea from the terrace and within walking distance of the centre of Fort Kochi. Our room on the ground floor was spacious and comfortable. There was a good range of options on the breakfast menu and we... More

We really enjoyed our visit and would go back. The food and terrace are excellent. The heritage architecture is inspiring, but restoration was rough around the edges. I call it character. The staff was friendly and tried hard, but poorly trained and some members had limited English. Go for the experience, but don't expect perfection.

I had a lovely time here, with comfortable room and a restaurant/bar with great view of the sea and great food. The design is excellent, very good ambiance. Perfect for a relaxing and/or romantic holiday.

Have you ever been to a hotel with no front door? Old lighthouse Hotel is in a unique position on the coast, adjacent to the locals' beach and the nearby fishing area.... a stroll away from some quality eateries and a walk or tuk tuk to Fort Cochins best street for markets, antiques and gifts. Forget the usual bartering and... More
