We booked into this hotel at the last minute having been subject to a 13 hour delay on the overnight train to Goa. The male staff when we arrived were very obliging and helpful and we wished the guy in particular hadn't left his shift early the next morning. The room was comfortable and clean and the shower was an absolute blessing after a day travelling from Periyar and around Fort Cochin.
However not all the staff are particularly good at this hotel and in the event of needing to book two flights to Goa that was leaving in 2 1/2 hrs, we found ourselves rather stressed having to wait 45 mins for a taxi and having paid for the flight tickets, looking like we were'nt going to make it to the airport. We are sure the staff knew that we had very little chance of getting our flight, after having taken the money from us. Had it been the male who was indeed very helpful and spoke very good english upon our arrival and not the little madam, our onward journey could have been much smoother, but nevermind we made our flight as there was a delay :) !
Thankyou for your help Sir and Mr Manager, sorry I didn't remember names.
This hotel is a great place for business/shopping and an emergency stay, typical of many UK business hotels. If you want to visit Fort Cochin it is better to take a car & driver onto the ferry for Rs 50 and you will be there in 15 minutes after arriving at the ferry terminal.
