Just returned from Kerala and a wonderful stay at the Old Harbour Hotel. I was there for 6 nights and was given the most beautiful room, with a gorgeous view of the garden and its big, mature trees. Jude, the manager, was so helpful, as was the rest of the staff. The atmosphere struck that hard-to-achieve balance between laid back and attentive. The historic building has been carefully restored, with great designer touches. Breakfast was delicious, with a choice of western or south Indian cuisine (or both!) the WiFi was a little sketchy, due to the previous weeks high winds. But Jude let all the guests use the hotel's computer whenever the connection was weak.
The owner has a few other properties, all nearby: Raintree Lodge (less expensive), and Dreamz (a private house) to name two. All are centrally located and within walking distance of most sights, and a quick rickshaw ride to other areas.
