'Palace' is a bit of a misnomer, but the Bolgatty Palace, is a place of calm and beauty between Kochi and Ernakulam. There is a frequent ferry service between the the island (the jetty is a three minute walk from the hotel) and the latter. Getting to Kochi is more difficult - you'd either use the same ferry, turn right... More

It's a historic property with excellent location. However it suffers from poor maintenance and service, characteristic of public sector. The place is infested with mosquitoes due to surrounding areas which lacks cleanliness. It is impossible to sit outside. Would not recommend for staying. Breakfast was cold, and staff unresponsive.

We had gone to this place for a family dinner. The restaurant did not have A La Carte menu. We had to eat from the buffet spread. The food was very sub-standard for a 5-Star hotel. The food did not match the hotel's reputation and price tag. We are not going back there to eat and also would not recommend... More

Good ambiance with outlook to gardens and swimming pool. Overpriced beer and food with typical "casual" (and the use of that particular word is very generous!) government employee service--either freshers who don't know what they're doing and take forever doing what they do know, or older ones who don't care. Too bad.

One should visit the hotel before selecting any other hotel in Cochin ! Because the scenic beauty this hotel enjoys is not artificial ! Being in the Middle of the Island near to city is like heaven ! I would really suggest to go to every corner of the hotel and then Select the room (once you made up your... More

If you work for a government office or have had... More

We walked with expectations of good service and property, but to our astonishment had issue with Air-conditioning not working, hot water supply. The response from maintenance and reception was very poor. The property is really good. Kids enjoyed the stay as we had good time at swimming pool and boat ride.
