“Great Ambience, Great Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

Simply blown away!!! The rooms, the food , the service were all par excellence!

Rooms - Full marks on cleanliness, aesthetics and comfort...replete with an old Fort Cochin cultural charm! Loved it!

Food - DO NOT miss the Sea Food here! Candle light dinner on their sea / backwater facing pier is a winner!!! it actually makes you feel your floating!!!

Service and Add ons - I did not have to worry on organising local tours and entertainment..the staff recommended and organised our itinerary for all four days. Ayurvedic spa, boat cruize, tryst with culture at the jew town...This place is simply superb! Will definitely be coming back.

I really liked the rooms and the service here. Me and my friend ended up getting sick after eating here though. The dinner service is on this weird pier facing the port, so it's not so pretty (especially after coming from Rajasthan) and make sure you bring your mosquito repellent. I also ordered their prawns the night before and they were overcooked and had too much butter on them (even though they said they were just grilled) for around 600RS too! Also you can hear the Muslim chanting in the morning from here too and it's pretty loud.

A good place to stay in Fort Cochin. The staff was very friendly, helpful and always there. The AC rooms are spacious and clean. The beds are really comfortable. breakfast is big and the restaurant serves in nighttime delicious food. And last but not least it is close to the boat jetty which makes visits in Ernakulum very easy. And even in walking distance to Mattancherry. Thanks for the wonderul time..

Stayed three nights, sampled the Ayurvedic massage which was excellent and the yoga class just across the road from Fort House which was worthwhile too. Very peaceful, clean and tranquil garden setting - good food and an around pleasureable experience. Highly recommended.

Really charming, small hotel with lots of character and very friendly service. Excellent value.
The rooms are stylishly simple but comfortable and opening out on to a verdant courtyard. There is also a very good restaurant with a fantastic location overlooking the harbour and we preferred this to all the other more expensive alternatives.
There is a great ayurvedic massage available at the hotel too.
The service is very friendly and we had helpful advice about how to see Cochin and the backwaters without necessarily joining a tour.
The location is ideal; walkable to everything and sufficiently off the main noisy square to provide some peace.

Small family run hotel in old town Kochi located on the water complete with antiques and its own pier restaurant. We spent two nights here and can't say enough about the quality of the service and food and ambiance. Special thanks to Nisha who helped us out with reservations over the internet.
