“Good, but....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2005

We stayed for one night prior to returning to UK. Super location, very nice rooms, good restaurant and excellent service. Provided very substantial early breakfast to allow early departure to airport. But...well it's a bit impersonal and cold, nothing wrong with the hotel, we just didn't feel we fitted in. Nevertheless you cannot fault the location, where else can you almost reach out and touch a 400 yard tanker! Super view!

We were there only 3wks ago. Although we did not stay in the hotel, we went for a lunch and the food, ambience and location of the hotel were excellent. It is good value for money too. If you have a chance atleast go and have a lunch or dinner there.

This property is excellent, with cool, clean room and great views of the Cochin harbor.

Be sure you inquire with the desk staff about what activities are available for free. They offer a free cooking class with the chef, but since we were the only ones taking advantage of it, I suspect that not all the guests knew about it. They also offer a free sunset cruise and free bicycles.

With all the free extras, it makes the Brunton Boatyard an even better deal.

My only complaint is that the desk staff did not have any information about backwater cruises other than the ones the hotel company runs.

The Brunton Boatyard was certainly a good hotel located in an interesting position overlooking the busy estuary near Cochin. Good character rooms with 4 poster beds and excellent facilites. Overall the hotel lacks a little "soul". The restaurant is good and offers a wide selection of choice. The breakfast is limited and there is no buffet which seemed surprising. Overall good - but needs to "spice up" the atmposphere
