Fort Cochin as a tourist destination has become swamped with local shops and weekend revellers. If you want to experience the old ambience just book into this hotel. I recommend two nights. Pros : Magnificient sunrise and sunset from the private dock. Breakfast on the deck Dinner in the dock. Clean safe rooms with character Friendly management All sights and Vypeen ferry is a quick stroll away. There are better eateries outside. TIP : There is a hole in the wall snack center on the Hotel's perimeter wall. Make sure you taste the inexpensive banana fritters and tea. The hotels seems to have thoughfully provided for car drivers of guests. But nothing prevents YOU from trying it. Cons : Mediocre breakfast. Good menu but bad delivery. Simple appam and stew feels like it has been made by some non-local trainee. The blankets in the room area a joke. If you run the AC and try to cozy up with the thin sheets , best of luck sir. A dhoti or saree will do a better job. Beware of hordes of diners who arrive every evening. So book your table early. Dinner is better than breakfast.

Amazing place to have a break in Kochi; good view and boutique vibe. The food in the Restaurent overlooking the backwaters was just mind blowing. Definitely worth the visit. The chicken fry starters and the squid rings are a highlight that is to be must tried.

Thanks to Ms.Nisha and her fabulous team we had a wonderful relaxing stay in the Fort House. The atmosphere is friendly, warm and homely with very attentive service catering to our every whim. We felt very safe and taken good care of. The property is super well maintained, all spick-n-span with lovingly arranged details. The rooms are very cosy and on first floor we had a nice view over the garden. Its also perfect to sit out at the seaside restaurant, watch the ship go by and sip an afternoon tea. Or take a stroll to the nearby jew town to explore the antique stores on treasure hunt.

All good things for our two day stay and even before - The hotel website could not accept my US VISA card and it would not be convenient for my senior mom in Kolkata to pay electronically. But Nisha Fernandez assured that we can pay when we reach Kochi, and that was so convenient for me. From the point we reached the hotel, the way the staff attended us, took care so that my senior mom does not have any trouble - I just cannot be happier. Any time you meet someone, they are all smiles and ready to help. The room was great- very clean and very nicely decorated. The restaurant by the water was gorgeous. The dinner and complimentary breakfast was lip smacking. The garden was so green and peaceful, my mom and I are still talking about the hotel and the staffs and how we enjoyed. The restaurant staff helped us so that we can find non-spicy food for my mom. The fish was great (coming from a Bengali that means a lot), the spicy beef was awesome. I know I am sounding like someone who owns the hotel, but really I am still feeling the comfort and fun we had during our stay on March 3rd and 4th.

A great boutique hotel at an ideal location in Fort Kochi within walking distances from all major tourist attractions and shops in the Fort area. Nisha Fernandez and her staff are most welcoming, friendly, caring and outstanding in their services. The restaurant offers some of the best traditional Kerala-style dishes and European/Western style dining on the deck. The boat ride to watch the sun set on the Arabian Sea was mesmerizing and memorable. My family and I could not have chosen a better place to stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We shall return!

We spent two nights here and the breakfasts were excellent and we were seated by the water watching the red kites swooping around which added to the enjoyment. The location is great just 10 mins walk to the centre or a couple of minutes in a tuk tuk. The room was fine and all the staff very friendly and helpful. There is also a great restaurant next door,the Seagull, which serves a good variety of dishes and specialises in fish.

Good location in Fort Kochi with possibility to walk to most of the "turist spots". Nice food and friendly staff. The room was very clean with a simple but nice design. The breakfast is served at the water front and the selection was good. I am very happy with the stay.

Fort House is ideally located on the water and within walking distance of Old Fort. The staff is helpful and super friendly, and the space provides a relaxing and comfortable experience in the heart of the city. The was food was good and has a cool dining overlooking bay and city. We were pleased with our experience and would recommend Fort House.
