Loved our three days stay at the Fort House! I was there together with friends and we felt absolutely pampered throughout our whole stay. The staff was very sweet and helpful, the food was more than delicious and the Ambiente of this family-runned hotel is just amazing. You can relax and lay back on the hotel grounds or explore the...

we stayed for 3 or 4 nights at the end of our 3 week Indian adventure - can't remember exactly without checking receipts. And, that is my point, the staff and hotel really grow on you; it becomes like home. We would definitely stay here again. The hotel and services are moderately priced. It has all the services of a...

Fort House has it all: convenient location to Fort Cochin historical locations and waterfront, clean rooms (no weird smells), on site restaurant with tasty local food, as well as attentive management. Charming garden at night, and staff will go out of their way to help you! Hats off to Nisha!

Cochin is a unique place full of character and history of the different people who once lived there Of other countries. This hotel is a medium type hotel but it's very well situated near the sea and the sights. The rooms are very large and comfortable with AC which is needed here as it's extremely hot and humid.The bathrooms are... More

It was a great place to stay. So close to Fort Cochin and backwater. The rooms are well maintained and tidy. The Ayurvedic massage was really a great one. One of the best I have ever taken. The food service is good as well, except that they dont have rooms service for food. The access to backwater from the resort... More

Despite not having hot water for 4 days & NO water on one day, we had wonderful time here. It was very out of season so very quiet with lots of attention including complimentary massages! The breakfast was good but got better when the charming breakfast staff offered us a Keralean breakfast which was sooo good. The room was spacious... More

We stayed here our first night in Kerala. Nisha was so wonderful in online correspondence booking the room and continued the exceptional service as we checked in and throughout our stay. The room included a 20 minute free massage for feet or back which was very nice. The room had good AC, hot water, very nice complimentary soaps and shampoos,... More

We arrived at the Kochi airport and caught the bus just in front and about an hour later, we were in Fort Cochin. The Fort House was a short (about 1K) walk from the bus stop and we were greeted with a very warm welcome. The room was spacious enough and clean. We enjoyed a complimentary 20 minute foot massage.... More

Just as good as it looks on the site photos (not always the case!) Plus a lovely kind welcome - Thanks Nisha! We were a group of 12, delayed a day (!), which must have been a bit of a headache but they reorganized everything and made our stay as easy and as relaxing as possible. The on-site Ayurvedic massage... More

Located just 5 minutes walk from the centre of Fort Kochi, walking through the gates of the Fort House is something that retains that special feeling every time you do it. The service is the hotel is first class and the rooms are well sized and comfortable. The restaurant is open all day and is located on a pier which... More
