The Fort House is a beautiful hotel with very friendly staff. The rooms are nicely decorated and clean. The restaurant was good. Mosquitos are a problem so make sure you have plenty of insect repellant. We had Ayurvedic massages there- read up on what that is like before you go. NOT like your typical American massage but very relaxing.

Nice place and restaurant. During our stay we also ha a cooking class which we enjoyed alot. The food in the restaurant is good and the atmosphere in the garden is faboulus. Friendly staff.

The location close to the seaside is nice, but the neighbourhood is not the absolutely best - it is however ok.

We stayed at Fort House for a couple of weeks. My sister had Ayurvedic treatment. It is a great place. Lovely small ayurvedic hotel. We loved our long stay here. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The whole place has a nice ambience. The food was the best we had eaten in India. It was freshly cooked daily accordingly to our requirement.
The ayurvedic treatment was good. The location is good as it is possible to easily catch the ferry to the main Kochin from this hotel.
I would go and stay here again.

I visited this place first in Jan 2012, and fell in love wit the ambience and massage. They are profeesionals with a HUGE heart and it shows. The staff is extremely friendly and as warm as the owner herself, Joanita Thomas.

She bowled me over by preparing an exclusive dish just for me n my friend. A kind of warmth you only experience at home, perhaps when u go over to your granny's and she's right there to pamper you.

Serene and clean, hygenic and ethnic, charming and warm, pleasant and calming.

Thats fort house for you. Extremely affordable and worth more than EVERY penny you spend.

Dying to be there again.

Regards.

Nice hotel, simple yet beautiful and well thought out decor, comfortable rooms, lovely gardens and a nice little walkway right up to the sea... although be prepared for the stench in the waters here!! Since we were visiting off season (monsoon), we had to sit within the grounds, away from the water, which was just as well! Location was perfect - just step out of the hotel to explore Fort Cochin on foot. Just across from this hotel is the Greenix Village, an interesting and laudable initiative to keep alive some of Kerela's oldest traditions and cultural activities. All in all - good food, comfy rooms, nice bathrooms, lovely gardens - a beautiful mix of culture, art, comfort and warm hospitality.

Located on Fort Cochin, has a lovely flowered courtyard and twenty rooms simple but clean. Feel very relax, early morning yoga sessions looking out over the harbor, foot massages in the evening and wonderful massages. Rooms clean, with coffee/tea provided.Good seafood restaurant, on the terrace overlooking the waterfront.
