The tower house takes you back in time and you will not want to comeback! The hotel's interiors are greatly done with wooden flooring,antique furniture,old photographs.I stayed here for a night with my parents in the second week of december. The location of this place is excellent as chinese fishing nets are right in front of it and you can...

We stayed for 2 nights with kids and had a very comfortable stay. The staff are really nice accommodating to any request that we have. The pool is perfect to relax after a long day. Despite the mosquito menace, the hotel made arrangements such that we had a trouble free night.

We came here on Christmas Eve and absolutely loved the property and also the room we got. Great and helpful staff. Only thing that could be improved would be the food which was so-so to say the most. Would definitely want to come back

We'd been to just one Neemrana property earlier - The Neemrana Fort Palace - and had been planning to stay at their other properties for the longest time. As fate would have it, our booking at a hotel in Kochi city was not honoured by the hotel and we were left fumbling for an alternate accommodation late evening in December...

I stayed for a few days during the KMB 16 opening week. The location was ideal and a short distance to all major KMB locations. The front desk and staff are very helpful and the place has a old world charm. No wonder it's a non hotel.

The two primary selling points for this property are its location and the people who manage it. The food at the property: the a la carte selection at the restaurant is good, though the buffet is rather scant. The property itself has rich character and charm, though as with most things vintage, the age packs its own challenges. I stayed...

It is indeed a great colonial house, and it is well located, but the overall experience was quite poor. The pool was closed. The room was ok. Just so ... I decided not to try the food. You can find better for that price.

It's a character place, in a great area, at a really good price. You can find smarter hotels nearby - at 'smarter' prices. However they can't really better the position and definitely can't better the service or the price ! The cheapest room is 5,500 Which we took - then got upgraded to a really spacious sea facing room, at...

The property is beautiful in its design and furnishing. It's location opposite the Chinese fishing nets and the 'you buy, we cook' outlets by the water is an additional plus point. The problem is that this property is not maintained very well: it's dusty, the plumbing poor, the air conditioners are in bad condition. I am ok with ignoring the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Tower House sits facing the Chinese fishing nets, marking the spot of a 17th century light house and hence the name. Cannon balls once fired out from its thick bastion-walls. The scallop-walled twin-house looks rather like a ship. And indeed, boats were brought in on high tide and parked downstairs in its stable and dry dock! Since 1982, it is owned by Peirce Leslie. The character of The Tower House lies in its unpretentious yet proud bearing, almost grandfather like, it sits looking out over the sea, a spirit of adventure surrounds it even today, taking one back to stories of high seas told and retold over centuries. Stately colonial pillars hold up its vast high-ceilinged halls. The generous arched doors welcoming one to step in to another world where time stretches, pauses to watch the sun set and then moves ever so lightly towards dawn. Yes it’s the magic of spaces that have seen more history than we will ever see, spaces that we know will still be there to delight those who come long after us.The furniture is an eclectic mix with no attempt to recreate rooms of any one era or type because the structure was added on to. It’s the light pouring in through the windows, skylights and the vastness of the indoor spaces that make for an unforgettable experience. Most of the rooms have large four poster beds, and bathrooms that happily accommodate, large tubs and windows that have views of the trees or the sea depending on where they are located. It’s been restored to be compatible with present day needs while maintaining its structural integrity. It reflects different periods rather than artificially being faithful to any single one. It takes you back in time, moods and memories woven together create a fabric that is strong but sits ever so lightly.The above uncompromising principles of practical use of material and form dictated The Tower House renovation too and it is adherence to these very values of being honest to the time we live in while respecting the past that has set new standards in heritage tourism.Discover the old world charm where, sailors, travellers, traders, planters feasted and danced under chandeliers, suspended from high wooden ceilings. ... more   less
