Patricia and her husband were amazing host, really helpfull and smiley. The room are very clean, simple but nice. There is a nice view on the canal. The price-quality ratio is very good. The only incovenience is its location not at a walking distance from Fort Kochi, but you can easily find rickshaws. Wifi was not so good.

We stayed in October 2011. Nice and cozy place in center of the city. Clean rooms with antique furniture. Our room opened up to the back waters. Good view. We had good sleep. Host Patricia's vegetable stew was awesome. It would be even more wonderful if the fish export company next to it is moved....

Rooms itself are good but the place stinks. The smell that comes from backwaters and also there is a fish export building next to it and it smells horrible. Whole night they were loading boxes over the trucks and we could not sleep. Just horrible....

Upon arrival, we were told that they had never heard of that reservation, that the family was coming and that they had no room. They were obviously lying about the reservation... More

I stayed at Carldale in March 2011 and found the experience most satisfactory. The property is located very conveniently, just a few minutes distance from the Ernakulam Railway Junction. Our plan was just to have a peaceful and relaxed holiday, doing what ever we pleased at our own leisure and thatz exactly what we did. Since Carldale is so centrally... More

Whilst Carl Dale is just around the corner from a busy shopping and business precinct, its location on the water is a peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle just a few streets away, as well as being only a short auto rickshaw ride away from the beautiful and historic Fort Cochin. Hosts Patty and Carlton Lewis were always... More
