This was our first hotel stay in India. It was ok/average but certainly no more. Everything was a litte worn and lack lustre. There is a pool which was nice but again tired with lots of missing tiles and leaves/bugs floating - not enough deter us from having a swim though! The food was pretty good, especially the breakfast.

We stayed two nights here at the beginning of our holiday in Kerala. Our ground floor room was spacious, as was the modernised bathroom, but sadly the only window provided no views and led... More

We spent the day here really to enable us to use the pool. A really good and relaxing breakfast, nicely cooked dosa with sambar and tasty eggs plus all the usual bits and pieces.

This was our first two nights in Kerala and we enjoyed it. Room was small, clean and basic but we spent little time there. Very close to locally used beach and promenade area frequented by local people in the evening. Lots to see and do in the town. Breakfast at the hotel was good as was the dinner. Service was... More

Had a terrific stay in this exceptionally beautiful heritage property in Fort Cochin. Suite just lovely, airy, well appointed, dreamy. Food was lovely. Bed super comfortable, staff very helpful, room overlooking Dutch Cemetery which is a very special little corner of Fort Cochin. Spoil yourself, just go there!

We had an incredible stay with the view of the Arabian. Sea view rooms were spacious enough for a family of 4. Enjoyed exotic yummy Kerala food with helpful and smiling staff attending all our needs at any given point of time.

Me and my wife togheter with our 9 month old son had a very nice stay at this hotel for 3 nights. The people working there are very friendly and helpful. Hotel is clean and with spacious rooms. Close to restaurants and just by the beach (however the beach should need some more cleaning) /Tobias Arnesson with family
