I stayed in Cochin twice while travelling around Kerala and based on my first stay at Walton's Home Stay decided to return. Centrally located a 3 minute walk from the Chinese fishing nets in Fort Cochin on one of the "main streets" (re: little road lined with tourist amenities: Internet cafes, travel agencies, cafes, gift shops, etc.) it had a great location and was generally a really nice place to return to at the end of another hot, sweaty day in India! Mr. Walton is very polite and helpful with everything from recommending local attractions/restaurants to ordering taxis and offering advice on the best methods of bargaining! The rooms themselves are immaculate and comfortable, tucked away around a little courtyard and away from the bustle of the street. A night watchman is posted at the main door all night so security is also well handled. Breakfast is prepared by Mrs. Walton and is a cosy affair with a chance to meet other guests. So all in all, I can warmly recommend this place!

highly recommended if you like homely friendly places
The house is lived in, books all over the place, which suits me
The room was clean and nice
There is a lovely little garden
Breakfast was above average for this kind of place, loads of fresh fruit and unlimited tea and toast

what we liked there
- great location in the center of Fort Kochi. it was very handy to drop in and out during the day. this place really is "downtown"
- our room was very nice and spacious, it felt like a hotel room
- the small garden in the backyard was lovely

what could be improved
- the bed was horrible! the mattress was too soft, so that I was more laying on the wooden frame under the mattress, than on this worn thing!
- this place has no wifi!
- the name is "home stay" but it is more like a guest house. you don't get to know the family.

We loved the quiet, civilized atmosphere and the beautiful rooms at Walton's Home Stay. The central location was fantastically convenient. The breakfasts were delicious, and Mr Walton soon had us organized to make the very most of our time at Fort Cochin. I borrowed a copy of the Lonely Planet from his bookshop and when I asked if I could buy it he gave it to me for free. One of the delights was waking up in the morning to find the the bird song in the garden was exactly the same as the recording on the Walton's Home Stay website! I wish we'd had more than a couple of nights.

Mr Walton runs an excellent home stay! So friendly and helpful in every way. Beautiful wood panelled room and tasty breakfast. Perfect location for everything in Fort Cochin. Highly recommended.
