We stayed for 3 nights in early December and felt very comfortable and looked after by the lovely owner and staff.
We choose a room with AC which was nice for the middle of the day when it was just a bit too hot outside. The room was clean and compact, and furnished with a unique, wooden furniture.
We took advantage of the booking service offered by Mother Tree - Kathakali performances just next door, and a day trip out on the Kerala backwaters. Both were great value and well organised although I'd recommend only a half day trip to the back waters as the full day was a bit long....
There's a great Tibetan cafe just around the corner near to the Kathakali centre - serves delicious authentic Tibetan food.
Overall we had a great stay and look forward to visit again!

We had the room pictured with four poster bed. The room was lovely; compact but all you need with tiled floor and ceiling fan. There is aircon if desired. It was spotlessly clean with a small attached bathroom. For once, the sheet on the bed was the right size as was the top sheet! The pillows were soft. Shyam and Anu were very helpful with advice and arranging a taxi to the airport. The location is also very good. Word of advice - this place is very popular so reconfirm your booking. They phoned us to check that we were coming. Having stayed in many hotels/guesthouses in India, we would recommend this for quality and price.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the two with four poster beds.

My friend and l really enjoyed our stay at Mother Tree, the staff and other guests soon made us feel 'part of the family'! Great location in the lovely Fort Cochin, just around the corner from the Kerala Kathakali centre, where we saw performances and went to Raga meditation sessions and is also walking distance to all the great restaurants and cafes. Have no problem in recommending this B&B even though we also had some A/C troubles, but this is India, so we were able to overlook this technical hitch!

Room Tip: Our second floor room was right below the rooftop 'chill out space' which it quite noisy whe...

Terrific! Booked Karma Inn with Agoda for £11 a night standard a/c room sole occupancy. They moved me to nearby and related Mother Tree instead. It was great regardless. For a reasonable price i had an a/c room, simple breakfast on top floor where Internet is available. Excellent free Wi-Fi. Helpful staff helped travel planning. They arranged rickshaw drivers for two trips. I expect they made a turn however i am not sure i would have negotiated less. Excellent location for money. Cannot fault it

A very good value accomodation option in a great location. Our stay was blighted though by the a/c not working and the fan vibrating very loudly (if the latter worked then we wouldn't have needed the air con and our stay would have been much better).
