If The hotel was a real treat for me as we were out to spend leisure time in Kerala. Old Harbor hotel is well located, a very short stroll to the seafront and the Chinese fishing nets.
Our Tour driver , Sujeet from Antilog Vacations was a great help through out the week long tour.AV did gave us a nice package booked online at rates affordable not comprimising with hotels.
Our room was all spacious and welcoming (including fresh flowers, petals on the beds). Perfect
aroma and immaculateThe bathroom was also in perfect condition. All the toiletries were present and it was neat. We enjoyed swimming in the pool and there’s always someone or the other from the staff fetching you some snacks or some kind of drinks. The pool and the garden are lovely and at night you can eat in the garden, with Classical Indian musicians sitting at the far side of the pool.
Staff were very helpful. Excellent location - Chinese fishing nets, walk along the shoreline,
visit local shops and restaurants, hop on the ferry to Eranakulum or Mandacherry (synagogue, dutch palace). Free Wifi is a bonus. Highly recommended.The food is mostly prepared according to tasteand is just fabulous. There was excellent south Indian food being served n there was a whole lot ofwonderful delicacies.
From the time of our arrival to the moment we left we were looked after in the most courteous andfriendly manner. There was always plenty of staff on hand to fetch and carry for us, answer queries and make arrangements. The service was highly personal and attentive. In Old Harbour hotel, you can stay in the most peaceful place, where all the staff, are doing there outmost to help you in every way they can. And the you can walk out in the exiting and colorful, vibrant Fort Cochin, and then back again to a cooling dip in the pool ind the garden. The absolute best of both worlds.
I higly reccomend that you stay in this lovely "home".
