We stayed in the hotel for best part of a week in late December 2014, and loved it. All the staff were fantastic, and after a day or two we felt like they were part of our family. The rooms were very nice and very clean. The food was very good, and the location is just a few minutes walk... More

As we were late on our arrival day, our prefered booked room already got taken, but the staff was really friendly and gave us the very beautiful Suite room for the same price as the dubble room. That is good service. The breakfast included is very good and the Hotel has friendly and caring staff and manager. I had a... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Old Lighthouse Bristow hotel. The room was spacious and it was right at the beach. We were able to walk down the beach to see the Chinese Nets and the open market. Service was good as well. Nothing exceptional about this hotel, but it definitely met our needs.

The draw of Fort Kochi is experiencing its rich culture and delicious cuisine and our stay at the Old Lighthouse Bristow gave us a pleasing taste of the colonial past. It is a beautiful old building set in pretty gardens in a great location. The ambience is more like a large guesthouse and the real advantage is its position being... More

Very well situated, right on Fort Kochi Beach, and few minuts walk from the Chinese Nets or from the animated center of this historical town.

Beautiful place tucked away in a corner in Fort Kochi. Perfect for a lazy, relaxing getaway with a view of the sun & sands. Nice, spacious bungalow style rooms. Great place to visit as a couple or with friends.

Very comfortable place to stay in. Decent sized rooms, clean bathrooms and enough open space for kids to run around. Overlooks the beach, and there is no need to step out to enjoy the sunset. Food was good, though not great. Would have been great to have a better spa within the resort. The common areas can be cleaner.
