We stayed at Fort house for three nights initially and loved it instantly. It's just outside the centre of Fort Kochi, about 5 minutes walk from the Chinese fishing nets and the market area. The rooms are spacious, clean and well decorated. The staff are all lovely and helpful, especially the owner/manager, who arranged cars for us and helped with... More

Brilliant service should come top of their list of accolades. They couldn't do enough, trying to sort out transport, recommendations, late checkout at no extra charge. The complimentary massage was a nice touch. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The restaurant is nothing special, but lovely to have right on your doorstep. Overall a very pleasing stay, and would definitely... More

I stayed 2 nights and found the hotel clean and tidy and the staff very welcoming and friendly. It was a great setting and although there are lots of mosquitos, the staff do everything to help prevent (coil, cream and fan at dinner). The meals were absolutely delicious and I wish I could have stayed longer to try more meals... More

A hotel with a amazing view! Great food and service! Polite staff. The view from the jetty is super! The main Ernakulam district is just 10 minutes away by sea, and the jetty service is available from just 2 minutes walk from the hotel. If you plan a holiday in Kochi, then THIS is it!

Stayed here with my family for the past week, Fort House has a beautiful set up, gardens, waterfront restaurant and clean and cosy rooms. We were very disappointed by their excursion booking service, which more than a commission, takes advantage of foreign tourists to charge them exorbitant prices. My advice, don't book through them your outings… its a rip off,... More

We had a 2 night stay at the Fort House and on arrival were told that we would be in a different room because of another guest falling ill. We didn't make a fuss and the room was decent enough for what we wanted. Reading another review I realise now that we were given room 8 that somebody else had... More

We where here for one night at the end of March. The hotel is small and friendly, the stuff was helpful and the rooms basic yet comfortable. THE best thing is the location. On the water, 5 min walk from all the major attractions of Fort kochi. You couldn't ask for more

This is an adorable, basic hotel with a staff that is helpful, knowledgeable and extremely pleasant. The rooms were medium-sized - and they were extremely clean, including the bathroom. Air conditioning was available as well as ceiling fans. The central area of the hotel was charming, with festive lights and interesting plantings. The restaurant staff was always accommodating, and breakfast... More

Stayed here for 4 nights....The rooms upstairs are very comfortable. Once I'd moved into one of these rooms I really enjoyed my stay here... the staff are very friendly and accommodating... The rooms are big, clean and have a fan and aircon which makes it comfortable given the heat... and there's a warm shower if you need one. Was in... More
