The staff is extremely warm n helpful. They did all they could to make our stay most comfortable n happy. Both Poornima and Rakesh helped us with local shopping details to food etc. we plan to visit kochi once again just to stay at TEA BUNGALOW ❤️
Class and elegant are the words that describe this heritage hotel. The rooms are unique and each one of them is decorated as per the theme of the cities that came in the spice trade route. The restaurant cooks decent food and the entire place gives you a homely feeling. The swimming pool is clean and well maintained and serves as an excellent stress buster on a hot day. A great place for private parties or friends and family travelling in a group.
Beautiful small boutique villa in the heart of Fort Kochi with all facilities and great service standards. Rooms are big, neat and clean with nice bathrooms, toiletries. The swimming pool is also very nice and well maintained. Overall a great place to stay in Fort Kochi.
Great hotel, wonderful large rooms, huge bathroom. Aircon was the most efficient we had in India & doesn’t turn off when you remove the card so come back to a chilled room. Pool was lovely in the garden surrounds. Breakfast was great and it’s walking distance to many restaurants and the major sights. Staff were friendly and very helpful.
The Tea Bungalow is a small charming, historic hotel in a quiet area of Kochi, yet within walking distance of everything. The reception staff set the scene for a professional yet friendly establishment. The building is early/ mid 20th century, used by the Brooke Bond tea company staff, but has been sensitively renovated to 21st standards. There is a central eating area with bedrooms off, and more bedrooms upstairs. There is a verandah in the back with tables and chairs, looking out over a garden and small pool. The staff are to hand at all times, providing meals, and drinks and snacks throughout the day. Our room was large and comfortable, with equally large bathroom, and...possibly the quietest air conditioning unit in the world! I recommend this hotel totally.
We stayed here x 3 nights one being the night before our flight at 00.20. The room was comfortable and had a lovely large shower room. It used to belong to Brooke Bond Tea. We ate here each day breakfast was perfect and the other meals were delicious. The staff took our bags to another hotel to weigh as theirs was not working which was so helpful. There was a small pool but we did not use. You could walk out easily into Kochi. A great place to stay
We chose Tea Bungalow, as we prefer small boutique properties instead of big impersonal hotels. The Location is excellent in Fort Kochi,the rooms well decorated in local style, modern bathroom, nice staff. We enjoyed
Stayed 3 nights in this very clean friendly little hotel. Stayed in a large ground floor room off the large main hall with a great shower room and little area to sit outside. The Tea bungalow was ideally located for the busy fishing nets and beach area yet the pool and garden were a nice retreat away from the hustle and bustle. The staff were very friendly and should get special mention for the extraordinary effort they went to by twice driving to the airport to retrieve a lost purse. Tea, coffees and snacks were readily available from the lovely staff inbetween their breakfast lunch and dinner times.
I must thank the member of staff who picked up my purse today after I dropped it in the pool area. His care and honesty has saved me so much worry and trouble. Good karma is coming his way! Thank you.
Very close to everything yet a tranquil place to stay. Lovely attentive staff, comfortable room and a great shower. The pool is a big plus after a day in the humid heat. Breakfast is very good and super fresh. A choice of European and Indian dishes.
