I admit I didn't arrive in a great frame of mind after a very drawn-out journey from Mumbai. This may sound strange, but I found the rooms really too large for one person and the whole place had a bit of a creepy vibe for me as a stressed-out solo traveller. I couldn't help thinking it'd make a great set for a spooky movie. This had nothing at all to do with the staff, who were very nice and helpful. The location is good and the heritage building is attractive and well maintained. The hotel is nicely furnished and decorated tastefully. If enormous rooms get you excited, then you'll love this place. Another plus is that the bathrooms are very clean and modern.
However, I don't think it's too much to expect a working shower when paying a reasonable amount for the room. I left after one night when the shower issue wasn't resolved by the following morning...as in, I can't wash under a tiny trickle of water.
I do want to mention that the owner of the hotel very graciously resolved the issue by offering me a room at their more expensive partner hotel for the same rate, I was really glad to move on from this place.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- It is my pleasure to introduce to you my latest hospitality venture, Victory Dawn in Fort Cochin. Following on the heels of the highly acclaimed boutique hotel Koder House, Victory Dawn is an attempt to bring yet another exclusive experience to discerning travelers. A former Tata tea company bungalow, Victory Dawn is set close to the beach and the Parade Ground in Fort Cochin - an area where English, Portuguese and Dutch influences abound. Tea cultivation and production played a very important role in the commercial history of Kerala and in its heyday, this tea bungalow hosted many influential officials. Like Koder House, Victory Dawn pays tribute to an era and preserves this atmosphere in an authentic manner. The bungalow offers six large rooms refurbished to retain all its age-old charm as well as modern facilities like internet data port and TV in each room, business centre, foreign exchange, electronic safe, doctor-on-call and laundry etc. We hope your patronage and support will continue to be with us as we embark on this new venture. Help us to make it a success as we attempt to give our distinguished guests yet another exclusive experience. ... more less
