It is a Government run hotel. So all the lethargy of Government staff are visible in the service and premises maintainance. Rooms and restaurant are good and maintained well. Swimming pool, garden and walkways are name sake and a wash out. Swimming pool is not cared and water is not regularly oxygenated or filtered. We could see Crows taking bath... More

Its an Heritage hotel in city of Cochi. The hotels is ideally located on the island and assessable by a Boat or through a very narrow winding road which can take only a tata nano or something similar if that exists. Ideal choice is to take the ferry to reach to the hotel. Once you are in you are in... More

This was a palace which is now a KTDC resort. Its location is awesome, surrounded by water from 3 sides. they have restaurant, bar and Ayurveda centre inside where you can take message. property is very nice but I think state government people are treating it as their personal property. It could have been maintained well. It is about 33... More

'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

We visited this place in January 2014. The first KTDC property we visited and we really liked it. This is really nice property... nice and quiet place. Rooms are spacious & clean. well maintained. Swimming pool is nice. Food was good. Service is ok. You can visit this place once.
