We stayed at the 'Dreamz' house, which is part of the Old Harbour Hotel but is a separate cottage about 5 minutes walk from the hotel itself. The house was fantastic with a little kitchen and lovely cool sitting room, plus a huge bedroom upstairs and nice bathroom complete with shower open to the sky! Great place to stay if... More

The Old Harbour is an absolute gem. I would single it out as the best lodging experience we had in our 2 week trip to Kerala. I say "lodging" as it's not really a hotel. It combines the best bits of a home stay, with all the luxuries you would expect of a 5 star boutique, if you are reading... More

3 day stay. Palace suite was lovely. Huge room with balcony and enclosed bathroom. Pleasant staff. Food was good and the pool and garden very nice. Beer and wine the only alcohol so bring a bottle if you want a G and T. Friend had a cottage which was also lovely, though the bathroom which was open to the sky... More

My wife and I arrived in Kochi to start our tour of Kerla in March. The staff at Old Harbour were delightful and we stayed in a lovely triple aspect room. Our stay here provided a very good base and the garden was pleasant to relax in and have drinks. We did not use the swimming pool but it looked... More

We were slightly disappointed by Cochin City . However, this hotel was a highlight. Spacious rooms, great food - lunch and dinner good quality and value. Standard rooms are excellent - no need to upgrade. Some lovely shops within walking distance - books and clothes. We had a made to measure shirt - excellent fit and quality.

We stayed at the Old Harbour for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon tour around Kerala. When we booked we were told there were no standard rooms available so (with hardly any persuasion!) agreed to a suite room. From the moment we arrived the hotel was fabulous. Right on the front near the popular Chinese fishing nets; the location... More

We were a bit disappointed on arrival that they had upgraded us to the best suite because it did not have a balcony. However, it was a huge room and we loved the place. Beds were great. Service was fantastic. Staff were so relaxed and pleasant but also professional. There are very few rooms so it's not like a big... More

Old harbour has to be one of the best hotels I have stayed in. You feel like you are in a relaxing dream world of colonial charm as soon as you walk through the door. We were upgraded to the Bastion Suite which is fantastic. Free yoga, sitar playing at dinner and wonderfully friendly staff. I cannot recommend enough. I... More

Excellent food beautifully presented with really good service. A really clean, fresh feel to the place. A colonial setting with a lovely peaceful garden. Ideally situated to walk and enjoy the local sights.

At the heart of ancient Fort Cochin, Kerala, a place that exudes history and culture, is the 'Old Harbour Hotel'.
