At Fort kochi facing the back waters is Brunton Boatyard , a nice property maintained in a colonial way. During seasons rooms will not be available here. There are only a few rooms in that hotel. Service is excellent and food is good/ Ideal hotel for rest and recuperation

We (my wife & I) were recommended this hotel and had not done any booking. The staff was extremely helpful and service throughout was always top notch. Why the 3-star then? It's a question of personal taste. The colonial atmosphere weighed fully all across the hotel and even in the restaurant. We prefer more informal places where you can chat... More

Brunton Boatyard is styled like a colonial English port hotel. The open-air lobby features high ceilings, huge “punkah” fans, a billiard table, a bar, framed portraits of historical figures, and an old sedan chair. Whitewashed exterior walls contrast with massive, darkly-colored wooden ceiling beams. In an area that was under construction, our group saw a collection of antique rifles mounted... More

Lovely old world hotel. Our suite was so spacious and well appointed with antiques. Nice touches of fresh flowers on the bed. Do not miss the free river boat tour in the afternoons. Hotel is located on the river and it is very interesting to just sit and watch the boats pass by. Highly recommended.

This hotel is steeped in history. It was originally a boatyard owned by Mr. George Brunton and his sons. It has been restored and it gives us a glimpse of India during the British Raj.

Very nice hotel and right in the middle of Fort Kochi area where the attraction is. It is minutes distance to quiet a few attractions in the area and also accessible to the ferry service from where you can reach to Ernakulam city easily. Although the food was fine but the service was a little slow.
