Mr Walton was a fascinating man. He had been a school headmaster. He was highly knowledgeable about Kerala and had an inner peace and faith. The apartment complex was very private and abounded by tropical plants. The building was originally built by the Dutch in the days of the VOF trading company. Mr. Walton even has documents reflecting the period... More

A very welcoming couple and a lovely large room made this place one of the best place I've stayed in India. The breakfast was simple but big and the coffee was good (for Indian standards). No tv in room but the garden outside and the location made up for it.

Stayed for two nights in a large A/C room. Very friendly family run place and a lovely old building. Wifi worked well but only in the lobby area. Breakfast was good and homely. Shame the room didn't have a TV but everything else was perfect.

Situated in a 250 year old colonial house in the heart of Fort Kochi, Walton's Homestay is clean, comfortable and at walking distance from most places of tourist interest and interesting eateries. The owner, Mr. Walton is an excellent host and something of a local historian. If you stay at Walton's, you don't just get a cozy place to stay... More

We had an excellent stay in Waltons...lovely clean room and a truly amazing couple. Excellent value for money..will definitely be back. Mr.Walton was so helpful with his maps and it was such a peaceful garden, full of birds and butterflies. The guesthouse had a very friendly atmosphere unlike many other hotels that we stayed in all around India.

I stayed at Walton's guesthouse for 4 nights. The room was very comfortable and very quiet. The Walton family and staff are friendly and helpful. You can have whatever you want for breakfast. Wifi is free, but only available in the common room.

After staying at Walton's, we knew we'd found the heart of Kerala: great location in a historic building in the old fort area. The rooms are character full, spotless, tastefully decorated, all amenities, and comfortable beds and pillows, clean sheets ensure a restful night sleep. You wake up to birdsong in the walled garden and a delicious and generous breakfast... More
