I stayed 2 nights at the hotel. The location was great, right on the beach, could watch children play and people swim in the night time and morning. But my room was old, the AC blowed directly on top of my head, and there is no hot water for the shower (I found out later that there is a switch...

When you enter the The Old Lighthouse Bristow hotel you are cheerfully embraced by a stately British heritage residence. Positioned right on the edge of the sea one feels immediately calmer. Hearing the lapping ocean while watching the morning fishermen in their canoes, dolphins, colourful birds and cheeky little squirrels is a delight that money can't buy!! All the staff...

It is incomparably good and the staff bend backwards to accomodate you. Your convenience is their priority. Nowhere in Fort Cochin you can have such a...

I just passed by this hotel and went in as the entrance boasted a 'kebab fiesta' poster. Being a North Indian, I was craving good Mughlai and Punjabi food since last few months of my stay in Cochin. I must tell all food lovers out there to try amazing kebabs this place offers. We tasted some signature dishes like "laal...

We booked this hotel for our last 3 nights of our stay in india. The rooms were amazing, very spacious. The beds were very comfortable and it's in a quiet location. We felt the service let the hotel down a little and there was lots of staff but nobody was taking charge especially in the restaurant. The drinks were quite...

Its a small hotel - essentially a large bungalow and few smaller cottages. There is a swimming pool and a spa. Had lunch at this place - though a bit high priced for the meal we had, the food was good. Could watch dolphins at sea from the sea facing restaurant which is a nice view and worth it. The...

We stayed as a family, in the Old Lighthouse for 3 nights, to relax and explore Fort Cochin and Kerala, after a hectic 10 days in the North of India. Our room in the hotel was lovely and spacious and we loved the pool. The breakfast in the hotel was the best in our whole stay in India! We also...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Chic luxury heritage boutique hotel in Fort Kochi. This is the latest treasure that has been created with great outdoor dining by the sea, one of the only spas that offers both western and traditional treatments in the area, and an infinity pool with great views of the sea and the English style garden. The indoor lounge is fantastic for a relaxing evening. The lighthouse bears witness to many a ship passing by and the ships that sail by seem to walk into the property. The hotel was the residence of the founder of Cochin port Sir Robert Bristow and has been receiving great reviews from all its guests. The hotel is a true sanctuary to relax and rediscover yourself. ... more   less
