We stayed in Old Harbour Hotel on September 2012 for 4 nights. As we booked in advance, we were happy to discover the Hotel looks even better than in the online pictures. It's a great boutique hotel, also by western standards, which is perfectly located in the heart of Fort Cochin. The hotel has a colonial style decoration, with a wonderful garden and swimming pool.
The staff gave us superb service which we have never encountered before (and we have traveled around the world). Everyone was kind and intelligent, and they have been very helpful even though we had lots of requests and questions.
As we arrived off-season, we were offered an upgrade to a suite, but decided to stay in a beautiful garden view room. The room was cleaned spotless twice a day, not forgetting flower decorations. Food was excellent, and it's one of the few places in town that serve alcohol. Not only free wifi, there is also a possibility to use a common laptop.
Thank you Jude and the rest of the staff – you made our stay in Cochin unforgettable!
