“Great value, super friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

I spent a long weekend in the Cochin area, with only one night at Mother Tree. I wish I could have stayed longer. My room was very clean and comfortable, and excellent value for the price. Fort Cochin in a tiny town, and it was easy to walk everywhere (and once around again) from Mother Tree.

The best part of Mother Tree was being so warmly welcomed and cared for by the family who owns Mother Tree and Good Karma. The internet service wasn't working at Mother Tree, so I was shown the location of Good Karma (5 minute walk from Mother Tree) and invited to drop by whenever I needed to use the wireless.

I arrived just before a major holiday during which the shops, tours, etc, were all shut down. I was invited, along with two other solo travelers staying at Good Karma, for a traditional lunch with the family. (I've included photos in my review.) The best part of traveling is always the friendly people you meet along the way. Inviting us into the family home to share a special meal was truly a wonderful experience I will remember always.

The staff here is amazing. The beds are comfortable and the bedrooms are clean. There is a nice rooftop breakfast eating area. By far the best part of staying here is the helpful staff. It's in a good location. a good pick for the price.

We stayed for 3 night at this B&B. We enjoyed our stay because of the friendly staff and the clean room. The owner of this B&B gives you all kinds of information about what to see, where to eat and where to drink a cold beer. They even arranged a train ticket to Goa for us (which seemed impossible to get it ourselves).

Shyem, thanks for the hospitality and the help and till next time!

We originally booked for 3 nights at Mother Tree but ending up staying for 6 as it was so comfortable and relaxing there. Fort Kochi is a great place to unwind for a few days after much travelling.

The staff at Mother Tree were very friendly and always helpful - even providing us with a map and an overview of the local attractions and facilities as soon as we got there - something that I feel is very important when you arrive in a new place, even though a lot of other places don't do this.

There was no pressure to take tours or rickshaw trips which was good as we were travelling on a budget and just wanted to relax.

Overall a great stay. Would stay here again and recommend to anyone.

Stayed there the first 3 nights of our 3 months India-Nepal travel. Mothertree war really good option for getting used to India. Staff was really helpful with all information, attractions, train tickets etc. No hassle or anything, rooms were nice. Really good value!

Room Tip: It's quite busy, better to book ahead.

Nice and fresh rooms and bathrooms! Extremely friendly owner, very helpful and always up for talking about anything. The top-hangout place is super chill, can sit and read, talk or just sit by the computer! All together a really great place to stay in fort Cochin!
