We stayed at The Old Courtyard Hotel for 3 nights in February. It is a beautiful building with lovely rooms. The old wooden furniture and floors in the rooms add to its charm. The mosquito nets and air conditioning ensure it is always comfortable. The courtyard and small pool are good to return to after a days sughtseeing. The staff are so helpful and the food was great. Would love to return!
For the second time, The Old Courtyard excelled! Re-visited Cochin in January and was amazed that some of the staff and the owners remembered me. The addition of a spa pool in the courtyard is fantastic to soak in the sun and relax after a day of touring and work. Service is too attentive and to detail, offering a selection of herbal teas is most welcome and so is the lunch menu of the day. Had an excellent meal comprising of fresh vegetables in a home cooked style and the taste of the prawn curry still lingers! Thanks to all at the Old Courtyard for another great experience and shall re-visit in time. Keep up what you are doing and good luck to Rose and Jacob for maintaining a property with such consistence ! 5 *****
The Old Courtyard Hotel is in an excellent location and is an older style Hotel with heaps of character, it is an old Indo-Portuguese architectural building, the floorboards are huge, and the furniture is so comfortable. We found the staff to be very friendly and extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble. There are plenty of places to eat in the evening within walking distance, this hotel is in the centre of things in Fort Kochi, and an excellent place to stay. Not only are the hotel staff great but Meena at the Travel Desk is extremely helpful and knowledgeable, she made our stay all the more enjoyable. We can really recommend this hotel as a great place to stay.
Fort Kochi was very busy. It did tax my driving in India a little. People, motorbikes, tuktuks, cars. Fortunately I did get to park right outside the hotel. The hotel was beautifully presented, with a lovely room, and the courtyard had a small pool. We ate elsewhere in the evening, but had breakfast, which was sufficient, though not the best. Very friendly staff (as throughout our stay in India).
Really enjoyed our stay here, the best in Kochi after moving around between side trips. The staff were super friendly and cooked us our best meal in Fort Kochi. The room - spacious, clean, brilliant hot shower and v powerful (same as a Western power shower... 👍)! The pool was also great, nice and cool and super clean. 10/10 would make sure to go to this hotel again if I came back.
