We didn't stay in the hotel, but had an excellent and reasonably priced meal in the attractive old courtyard. Can't comment on the price of the rooms, but the setting is very appealing. The staff made sure that we had everything we needed including a mosquito coil.

I really felt at home in the old courtyard. The staff was incredibly accomodating and friendly. The space itself was the most important to me, a large inner courtyard restored from an old fort kochi home with the red tile brick and whitewashed walls that reminded me of my childhood in old kerala homes. The rooms themselves feel were cozy... More

This small hotel produces delicious meals in the kitchen and delicious ices in the front! Charming old world rooms made for a very enjoyable stay. The courtyard itself is a haven of tranquility, except when the crows visit!

We stayed at the Old Courtyard Hotel during Christmas, and we booked their suite. The room is awesome, very spacious and with beautiful wooden furniture. The bathroom too was lovely. The staff was friendly and quick to answer to any of our questions. Certainly one to recommend!

First up it is a very charming hotel! The rooms have four poster beds, colonial rattan chairs, old wood flooring and beautiful paintings. We stayed in the standard room and will not recommend it for family as it is a small room with queen bed. The breakfast was very limited - only continental food which was just so-so. We had... More

Dear Madam, Thank you for your review and feedback. Standard Rooms are never ideal for families especially with children, and are more suited to couples or friends travelling together. Indian Breakfast is served only from Nov. to March and is served during the off season on request. The receptionist asks all the guests staying with us if they would like... More

Breakfast here is like faulty towers. Don't have a lot available even though it is on the menu. Fruit tasted like garlic. We had to get it replaced twice. Indian breakfast was actually diabolical. Rooms are pretty noisy but very clean and pretty

Dear Madam, Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback on the breakfast. And have spoken to the kitchen. From what I gathered, you were already upset that after you came one day late and requested a refund you were not obliged since the cancellation came 2 days prior to check in. And our policy states that cancellation up... More

Our meal which consisted of Chetanad Fish Curry with coconut rice, Keralan Shrimp Green Mango & Coconut curry with Lemon Rice also the Indian Salad. All was so well... More

I visited Kerala for the first time - last month (Oct '14) and stayed at the Old Courtyard Hotel. First up, even before I talk about the hotel - the location alone is fantastic. Its right in the heart of Fort Cochin on Princess street that is extremely vibrant and charming. The rooms are spacious and have been done up... More

My Husband and I loved this hotel from the minute we walked through it's doors. If you're after a big ***** star lounges and entertainment areas then look elsewhere. If you want a charming intimate hotel that is more personal then this is it. On our entry into India we stayed in a lovely large bedroom with a kingsize bed.... More
