I had been travelling with a group and wanted a few days to myself when I booked this spot. I was originally in the cottage at the back, but I found it too noisy. When I explained this problem to the staff they moved me in to the main house which was much quieter and, in my opinion, has slightly... More

Elphinstone Residency can certainly boast of its great location, heritage and hospitality in the heart of Fort Kochi. It is just a few minutes walk to the beach and the Chinese fishing nets. We booked a budget room for two nights in this hotel through Cleartrip. But due to some issues with the budget room, we got a complimentary upgrade... More

We stayed here two nigths from 6-8 January 2016. The room was nice and neat with AC, although it lacked a tv. Staf was very friendly, although they could be a bit more assertive for my taste.

As a single lady, was skeptical of staying at any given place. Was very particular to speak to them before arriving, they offered a deal I couldn't refuse. Then when i arrived the place, it was as wonderful & quaint as it seemed on the net. The staff were warm and hospitable during my stay. I would recommend this place... More

The best part is the location - walking distance to everything in Fort Kochi. Second best part is the restaurant Oceanos next door. The rest is pretty average. We stayed for one night. We booked a room that was to include breakfast and a TV with satellite. TV had been taken out of the room, and the staff member said... More

Stayed here with friends on a short visit for attending a marriage. Nice Rooms and the hotel is very calm and quiet. Staff very friendly and with a good knowledge about the area and they were at service for all our needs. The beautiful garden at the backyard was our place to relax and have fun. Overall and awesome experience.
