“Great Service at a quaint property”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

Very much suggested if you are looking for an off the beaten path, but high quality property. Its a 15 minute ride from Fort Cochin but its quite and the service is excellent. They only have a few rooms, and the food is very good!

Room Tip: Room 107 did not have an ac remote, so the ac was on high at all time, 107 has direct access to the...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2011

We were attending a conference in the Cochin area, and this small hotel was recommended as near the retreat center and affordable. We were very comfortable here and found the staff friendly and eager to make our stay a pleasant one. The air conditioning was efficient and cooled the bedroom down quickly each night when we returned. We were in the suite with its own sitting room and that had advantages in that there was a sitting room, a large bedroom with a raised bed, a larger bathroom, a separate dressing area, etc. (There was a ceiling fan in the sitting room but no AC, so we didn't use it much during our stay.) Guests may hear some noise from the bar when staying in this room but it wasn't a big problem for us. The hotel was very clean.

We loved being able to look out on the Chinese fishing nets on the backwaters and spot various birds as we ate our breakfast and dinner each day. The food was very good and the staff helped us find dishes that we would enjoy. I have to avoid spicy dishes and found plenty of good options on the menu. My husband was looking forward to trying a variety of spicy dishes, and he was happy with what he ordered as well. We both stayed healthy throughout our trip, ordering cold bottle water with our meals and taking that with us on our daily excursions.

We would happily return here on our next visit to Cochin, but might opt for one of the deluxe rooms (rather than the suite) so that we had a bit more of a view.

It was altogether an "OK" experience, except for the disturbance ( talks n TV noise) from somewhere beneath the Suite room, when complained, they said, its from the BAR which belongs to the resort owner themselves. Suite room failed to provide hot water too, they couldn't fix it till we left. And above all, the view from the suite room was much worse, as it over looked the public road nearby and nothing pleasant to see out of it.

Room Tip: Avoid suite room

After a night in a small, noisy sweat box in a cheap hotel in Fort Kochi I found Hotel Heritage Methanam on Hotels.com. I immediately changed hotels for thje better!
Hotel Methanam is about 16 kilometres out of Fort Kochi; 150 -200 rupees in a rickshaw.
It was perfect - big room with high ceiling and heritage surrounds. A great bed tops off the comfort. There is a small pool in which you can cool off whilst looking at old Chinese fishing nets in the waters near the hotel. The staff are very friendly and the hotel restaurant provides tasty dishes - especially local fish curries. It provided me with a comfortable, friendly and cool last 2 nights in South India.

We stayed at the Heritage Methanam for three nights recently. The small hotel was immaculately clean ,had amazingly attentive staff and was very quiet. Although about 10 kms from Kochi it was very easy to get into town if one wished ( a tuk-tuk cost 100 rupees each way).The hotel stay was at the end of our busy Indian tour and was ideal for relaxing.

Heritage Methanam is not in Kochi but a nearby village Kumbhalangi! This was something not informed to us and somehow I was informed that this was in Fort Cochin area. Well though the stay started on this note, I was pleasantly surprised to experience the home like stay! We were the only occupants in the hotel and the hotel staff gave us all the attention! The food was excellent and the location was beautiful. The favourite part was sitting in the lawns for the meal overlooking the waters, Chinese nets and the coconut trees!

The place is well maintained and the village is nice. I would recommend the hotel to have facilities like drop facility to city and airport as the village is atleast 10 kms away.

I would certainly visit the place when I am looking for some quiet time away from the bustling city life.
