This was a lovely end to our tour of Kerala and Cochin was every thing we hoped for, the only slight critisism and the management were very helpful in sorting it out, is that the wifi was awful. If you get the opportunity of a guided tour round the local area, go for it, it was fascinating. The hotel food...

Magical atmosphere in this hotel, especially at night!! The outdoor area beckons with candlelight, music and the sounds of running water. Staff were friendly, the breakfast made just for you, instead of the usual buffet in other hitels we stayed in, which was a welcome relief. Our concern was with the bathroom, in our room, the toilet wouldn't flush properly...

We stayed here for the start of a ten day trip and it was really fantastic. The room was splendid and the food was great. The garden was beautiful and included a pool to take a dip in the hot weather with lots of shady spots. The staff were really helpful and friendly in a informal way. It felt like...

This is one of the older buildings in the city. It has a relaxed atmosphere with a lovely courtyard and excellent rooms. Service and food are first rate. Old Kochin has some attractive areas along the water front but it has not always been developed in a sympathetic fashion. Nevertheless this is a great jump off point for the backwaters...

What a delightful find. In the heart of Fort Cochin. Lovely room with outdoor tropical rain shower. Sublime food - book a table in the restaurant early under in the courtyard under the biggest mango tree I have ever seen. Tuna tikka and fish and mango curry were both to die for. Wonderful massage. Staff could be have been more...

The property is a handsome, historic home with a lovely swimming pool and garden. When we arrived it happened to be Valentine's Day. The swimming pool was covered in fragrant red rose petals, there were candles hanging from trees and an live musicians were playing and signing Indian love songs. It was stunning and in such fine taste. Edward, the...

This is probably my fourth stay at Old Harbour hotel. This time I took my sister there as I knew she would love it. Of course she did. We stayed in the Tower Room and loved it. the garden, the pool, the breakfast, the ambience - everything is just so tasteful and beautiful. The wonderful chef, Rahim, speaks a variety...

This is a great hotel, priced really reasonably, in a really perfect location, just outside of the main hubbub but easy walking, or tuk tuk distance to the main town. Within 5 minutes of checking in we saw dolphins swimming in the sea directly out from where the restaurant is and we continued to see them each day we were...

This beautiful water front property has a historical past Distinguished Grey haired retainers talk of a time when it was the stately home of tea plantation bosses; Some regale you with stories of how the plotting of the retaking of Goa was actually done from this very 'War Room' in the Old Harbour Inn - so called in an earlier...

This hotel serves excellent food, in a lovely setting - gardens and live music. The fish was especially good, extremely fresh and tasty. Our room was spacious, and staff helpful Although wifi was free, it was variable speed and access.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At the heart of ancient Fort Cochin, Kerala, a place that exudes history and culture, is the 'Old Harbour Hotel.' A 300 year-old building that has for long been a heritage monument of this town, now reopened as a boutique hotel. Built in the Dutch style of architecture with hints of Portuguese influences, it was the first hotel of old Cochin. Later it remained a residential home to employees of English Tea broking firms until it was left unused for a period of time. ... more   less
