We stayed in October 2011. Nice and cozy place in center of the city. Clean rooms with antique furniture. Our room opened up to the back waters. Good view. We had good sleep. Host Patricia's vegetable stew was awesome. It would be even more wonderful if the fish export company next to it is moved....

Rooms itself are good but the place stinks. The smell that comes from backwaters and also there is a fish export building next to it and it smells horrible. Whole night they were loading boxes over the trucks and we could not sleep. Just horrible....

After reading the good reviews here and at other places, we had made a reservation for this place via hostelworld.com for two nights (including the payment of a deposit!). Upon arrival, we were told that they had never heard of that reservation, that the family was coming and that they had no room. They were obviously lying about the reservation... More

I stayed at Carldale in March 2011 and found the experience most satisfactory. The property is located very conveniently, just a few minutes distance from the Ernakulam Railway Junction. Our plan was just to have a peaceful and relaxed holiday, doing what ever we pleased at our own leisure and thatz exactly what we did. Since Carldale is so centrally... More

The guesthouse is very comfortable, extremely clean and is set in a lovely location. Our bedroom opened onto a verandah in the back garden with a lovely view of the backwater. The hosts, Carlton and Patricia were gracious and helpful. An attendent lives in the house and he catered to our needs, including serving breakfast every morning. The house is... More

Whilst Carl Dale is just around the corner from a busy shopping and business precinct, its location on the water is a peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle just a few streets away, as well as being only a short auto rickshaw ride away from the beautiful and historic Fort Cochin. Hosts Patty and Carlton Lewis were always... More

We traveled with my brother's family and rented the entire villa. Stay was very pleasant. We were new to Kerela, the owners and the helper who stayed in the villa were very helpful to plan our vacation. Villa is kept really neat and clean and the helper who stays in the villa did an excellent job of attending for our... More

We were 6 of us who stayed in three rooms : My parents stayed in one room, my wife and and I stayed in the second room and the two kids stayed in the third room. The place was very clean and homely and only for us, unlike being in a large hotel with too many people around. Our trip... More

This was our first stay in a homestay but i must confess that it was better than some of the star hotels around the world. The comfort was excellent and the hospitality of Mrs Patricia and Mr Carlton was commendable. As i titled the stay here as " Heaven in God`s own country", it was truly a top class experience... More
