My friend and I stayed here for a few nights, and it was a wonderful experience! The owners are incredibly nice and helpful of any request we had. Breakfast is included in the price, and I am still craving the vegetable korma and rice cakes! The location is a bit hidden, but it is near a busy, well known road,... More

Mr and Mrs Thomas run a fantastic homestay and are the perfect hosts. They served us excellent and very different local breakfasts every morning. Mrs Thomas truly is a fantastic cook. The couple were very helpful and arranged for us to see elephants being bathed, helped us book coach tickets and did our washing for free. The property is located... More

We stayed at Thomas Inn simply due to its proximity to the airport. We had an early flight so we wanted to stay close by. Honestly, we weren't expecting much and were pleasantly surprised. The owners are the nicest people we met in India. Extremely helpful and kind. The rooms and bathrooms are clean. The room was quiet with a... More

Location is bad for tourists, there is nothing around and it is a long was to fort Cochin. Also a walk along a difficult road to any resturants. The family are... More

Homestay was nice, clean rooms with AC and fans which kept the rooms cool. Mr and Mrs Thomas are nice and made breakfast for us each morning. The fresh mango juice was great and they tried to cater for my two fussy children! Thank you for that. The sitting area outside was lovely and peaceful and nice in the evenings.... More

Mr & Mrs Thomas were fabulous as were the breakfast and wanted to do as much for you as possible. The airport pick up/drop off was great. I wouldn't suggest staying there if you were a solo traveller. My friend and I were followed a couple of times and where the Inn is located there isn't a tourist in sight.... More
