First at all I would like to thanks Patrick & Rose, you both are excellent, friendly and helpful and also thank you for all the team at Eighth Bastion to make our stay before leaving India such memorable holiday. Service in this place is excellent, everyone here give you a big smile all the time. Room we were stay is beautiful, clean. Bed is so soft make you feel don't want to wake up. Everything in here beyond our expectation. Definitely return no doubt about it.

The Chef outdid himself when we visited EB for lunch. The Sea Food Trio had just the right spices, the stuffed calamari was not chewy, the beef sliders were a surprise with the different flavors. The desert menu could use variety. Ill be back.

This is a new hotel. We had the biggest room of our trip with a view from the balcony towards the beach (very grubby). Lovely pool, good food with a limited menu, helpful staff. No TV in the room which meant we had a good rest in between sightseeing. It is very near the Bishop's house museum and not far from the other sights which can be seen in a day. Brilliant restaurant around the corner.

We found the Eighth Bastion through its cousin hotel, Brunton Boatyards, and we were happy! Every part of our experience there was terrific. The driver met us at the airport at 3:30am and carefully drove us, speaking perfect English, to the hotel. This is a very modern, incredibly clean and tastefully decorated place with very friendly and attentive staff. The location is outstanding, and the food was terrific. We were specially pleased with Michael, the hotel manager, who was so good at taking care of our needs.
We highly recommend this place

The hotel has a beautiful zen like feeling. Its design is a fabulous confluence of old-world dutch charms and modern-day luxuries. The rooms are huge (I've never been to more spacious hotel rooms) and mine had an attached balcony with a beautiful view. The bathrooms are super luxurious too and stocked with great natural products by CGH. The food is simply fabulous! Having been to most of the gourmet restaurants in mumbai and delhi, i can safely say that i haven't had better food anywhere. The distinct flavours of various dishes were impeccable. However, vegetarian options were limited and they need to add some variety there. Breakfast options were also limited and the service at that time needs to be more responsive. The hotel also provides bicycles and I went around cycling almost every morning to explore the area and totally loved it. The hotel has an awesome location in Fort Kochi and the entire area has a really nice vibe to it.

We stayed at the Eighth bastion recently and in all ways it exceed our expectations. The hotel is built just right for the discerning traveller with excellent rooms and spectacular bathrooms- we had 207 and 208 both rooms highly recommended. The pool is great, excellent restaurant, although service as is common in the Fort Kochi area (the venerable Brunton Boatyards owned by the same people as this hotel being a notable exception) was very slow at times. The free wifi worked great. They have complementary bikes for guests to cruise around. Top notch service.
