Reviewed February 27, 2013

Stayed here for 2 nights along with friends...Hotel is good distance from Cochin railway station.It is walk able distance from the Chinese fishing nets and the ferry. Rooms are clean and well maintained. The buffet breakfast is a joke and hardly anything available. Room is prompt and the staff are very helpful though the hotel has no professional room service system. Food at the restaurant is very average and we gave up after the first night. There are better hotels and restaurants around Fort Cochin unless you are getting a very good price on a B&B basis.

This is a very nicely-located hotel within walking distance of the sea. We were father, mother, and adult son in one large, nicely decorated, sunny room, with a small, windowless, curtained-off seating area attached. (Our son, of course, was stuck with the extra 'bed,' which is really just a vinyl-covered hard cushion on wheels - very small and uncomfortable with a sheet that couldn't possibly stay on. He put his 'bed' in the seating area, which was almost like having a 2nd room, and that was nice.) Aside from the awful 'third bed,' the room was great and we were quite comfortable, with lots of light streaming in and plenty of cool air-conditioning. Our bed was large and comfortable and there were enough chairs (including a rocking chair!) and tables to have a party if we'd wanted. The rooftop breakfast was delicious and plentiful, the coffee quite good when the pot was fresh. This is almost the only hotel we stayed in in India because we quickly discovered that Homestays are far more fun, a lot cheaper, and the owners are usually much more likely to help you with planning, etc. Still, the staff of Bright Heritage were cheerful and kind, and we would not hesitate to recommend a night here.

The hotel is just round the corner from Princess Street and Vasco da gama place so has all the convenience of being central without the noise and disturbance. The rooms are large and well equipped and there is a good shower with hot water.

There is a roof top bar with not much of a view but breakfast is served there and there is a good choice of food on the menu.

Free wi fi in the reception area only

Only criticism is that apart from the bar and reception there is no where to sit and relax

Though within the city limits area, stands out from the hectic city traffic and one will the feel the clamness as soon as you arrive into the resort.. Just sitting by the pool and having the lakeside view is an amazing and relaxing experience...Combined with some yummy food, it is definitely a worth choice for all people alike...

The Bright Heritage provided a Nice Ambience for us. The Welcome Greetings by their staff gave us Hearty Feelings.

Rooms were kept neat & clean. Room service better than similar categories.
Myself was very much impressed by the Staff Attitude towards their customers.

Overall, the stay was pleasant & worth for it's value.

we came across the bright heritage on trip adviser and booked a two night stay, we were on a 3 wk tour of south India with no idea of where our next stop was going to be, after talking to the owner of this clean budget hotel he told us he also had drivers and cars for hire!!! we took a driver for three weeks and the hotel owner set us a plan of places to visit, he set up a house boat for us which turn out to be fabby and the prices were Indian prices and not tourist rates, what a difference it made, we went with a large budget but didn't even make a dent in it, anything I wanted all I had to do is reach for the drivers phone and telephone the owner and he fixed things for us!!!!, this is a service no one can do without, he went above and beyond good service, we are very seasoned travellers in our 40's so we knew what to expect but this hotel and team made our holiday, in fact we are going back in two months time. after going where we wanted we discovered where we like the most and want to go back to. this would not of happened if we hadn't booked the bright heritage. the owner knew all the best hotels and places to go, we changed some of our trip and done as we pleased,if we were to travel the 3500kms by train or bus it would of turned into the holiday from hell, but thanks to the owner and his team it made our holiday, ask to speak to shabeer himself and you will discover what they can do for you!!!!

Room Tip: use the bright hotel as a info centre for the rest of your trip, get a driver and car its really so...

nothing was right is this hotel : no AC (not working), cold shower, dirty bathroom and medium comfort for the bedroom. Awful breakfast with just eggs and coffee in a bad looking restaurant.
We paid a really expensive rate on internet for this bad hotel, and we eard of better hotels at the same price by friends , so stay away of the bright hotel

Room Tip: choose another hotel - many of them around

Dear Guest...Greetings from Hotel Bright Heritage ...Thank you very much for your time to write a review in`Tripadvisor`. We understand that your stay with us was one year back(03 years Back )and now we have improved a lot , refurbished our rooms and changed the restaurant management .Within this one year you can see the changes and positive comments of guests who stayed with us.And let me say, the free up-gradation of room can be done only without losing our revenue, means when four or more rooms are remaining unsold by night definitely we will do it.Anyway please understand that we are giving maximum justice to our guests for what they pay.Request you to refer our hotel to your friends and associates again and again, because we believe change is the only thing which cannot be changed and we are changing better day by day by the suggestions and comments of our esteemed guests like you.
thanking you with warm regards,
Sunil ( General Manager) and team of Hotel Bright Heritage ,
