We had such a wonderful time at this delightful boutique hotel last week.We had 3 nights but wished we could have stayed longer.The room was gorgeous,The Tower room( garden room) with a balcony overlooking the lotus pond ,garden and pool.Yoga was a bonus on the roof top in the morning.However, the staff were outstanding ....all of them and we wish to thank Jude,Pablo, Vonnita and all the staff for their friendliness and attentiveness.
The hotel is in a good position in Fort Cochin and with easy access to all the attractions and close to the ferries.The pool is refreshing( all the other swimming pools in southern India had water that was far too warm,) and of good size.We met other travelers that were staying at the 2 other big hotels but commented that they much preferred the Old Harbour since it was much more intimate and Boutiquey!Dinner in the evening was a delight with candlelight tables and Indian music ( sitar and tabla)and we had delicious food.
Thankyou to everyone at the Old Harbour we so enjoyed our stay and should we return to serene Fort Cochin and indeed we hope so ,we wouldn't stay anywhere else.

- At the heart of ancient Fort Cochin, Kerala, a place that exudes history and culture, is the 'Old Harbour Hotel.' A 300 year-old building that has for long been a heritage monument of this town, now reopened as a boutique hotel.
