“Nice place if you get a garden room”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2011

Make sure you get a garden room. I booked over the phone and was dismayed to find myself in a large clean room with no windows at all (but AC and some basic ventilation. I asked to be moved to a garden room, which happened for my third night and it was much better.

It was a nice surprise as we reserved on the phone only a couples day in advance. It was a heritage home with nice rooms. Our's wasn't very spacious, but good enough. We had only our last night there, so it's a limited experience, but one of our friends was sick and they help them ordering food and receiving phone calls from the reception.

We were looking forward to staying here after reading good reviews, but despite booking a week in advance (and receiving a confirmation email!), they denied any knowledge of our booking when we turned up after a long trip from Delhi - even after they were shown the email! Totally unprofessional!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2011

Stayed at Spencer Home for 2 night in Dec. 2010. Had two large rooms with AC and slept very well. Not cheap but good value for money! The very friendly host called Andy was extremely helpful. I had some laundry which was done fast and proper. He arranged - at very short nice and it was getting late - a perfect fish dinner and a Ajurveda Massage in a nearby Ajurveda parlor for us. The Ajurveda Massage was "out of this world" and we kept best memories of this place and can really recommend it! It's located close to the ferry and to the center of town.
Regards
Thomas

A nice place in a great location in fort Kochi. Most rooms are at ground floor set around a inner courtyard. No AC here but the rooms are nice and clean. Best features are price and location. Use the laundry services only if you absolutely need it.
