My husband and I went to this hotel for a brief vacation and ended up having the most wonderful time!
The hotel is the erstwhile home of the architect of Kochi and therefore has a quaint old-world charm. The room that we were assigned had wonderful wooden furniture, a large modern bathroom and a nice LCD TV!!! The air-conditioner worked great - soundless.
When we arrived late at night, we received a traditional welcome with garlands and tika + some refreshing coconut water. The friendly staff helped us with a speedy check-in. We also got an opportunity to meet the owner of the property and he was very friendly!
The best part about the hotel is the food. Traditional Kerala food is served with much joy. It was really nice to meet the Head Chef. He actually took us inside the hotel kitchen and demonstrated a few dishes and desserts. The Hotel bakes its own cookies and bakes the wonderful cakes/desserts. The snacks and finger foods are also very good and presented beautifully.
We received a complimentary foot massage and it was super relaxing.
As far as the location of the hotel is concerned, it is very nice. Better be prepared to do a bit of walking - as Kochi is best explored on foot. There's a small beach which adjoins the hotel and its fun to hop over to it!!!
The staff is extremely helpful and assist you in arranging for a taxi and providing suggestions for shopping.
Would love to visit this hotel again!!

- 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
