David, the owner, is friendly, charming and helpful. Because of transportation problems we asked to cancel a second night and he let us without a problem. The entire staff is friendly and helpful. When we asked about laundry, the washing began in 5 minutes. Rooms are nicely furnished. We were given a choice of a larger room for 300 rupees more, but saw no reason to move. It is a small place with less than 10 rooms enclosed by a wall and has a nicely tended courtyard. The typical guests were friendly,older European couples who have some experience of India who were looking for a good, reasonably priced hotel who had useful information to share. It is in a good location convenient to both higher priced and reasonably priced restaurants and fronts the parade ground which makes it quieter at night and interesting by day because kids are playing cricket, soccer, or field hockey. The Roti Dal restaurant about 2 blocks away has good, reasonably priced dal and other homecooking. The owner of Roti Dal is a gem who explains the differences between South and North Indian food and their prejudices about food. Vasco's restaurant in the next block towards the Chinese Fishing Nets is a good choice for coffee, chai, appam or other Keralan staples. In the morning walk to the Chinese Fishing nets 5 minutes away for chai and to observe the fish market auction. There is a higher priced but good quality shop next door which has batiks and other unique items I did not see elsewhere. A nice Kathkali theater is a walk of 5 minutes or less.

A terrific place to stay in Fort Kochi, Kerala! The place was very clean and the owners were super helpful and very friendly. The room rate also included a nice breakfast.

We stayed in Delight in October this year and really enjoyed it. Having flown in to Cochin from the UK via Dubai this was the ideal place to unwind before starting our tour of India and Sri Lanka. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and the rooms were very good and represented good value for money. The situation is perfect for enjoying Fort Cochin within easy reach of all of the attractions and yet quite and relaxed. Have been to Cochin a few times during 35 years of visiting India and have tended to try different accomodation each time but if I return I will definately go back to delight. Thank you so much David and Flowery you run a first class guest house.

Room Tip: The front room on the first floor with a balacony in front is the pick of the rooms

After a truly disappointing Backwaters experience, we arrived in Cochin a little hassled and having deposited my husband in Vasco Cafe (great ginger fizz!), set about finding a room for the night.

I checked out about 8 properties, but plumped for Delight as the place looked like something out of a fairy tale. I know you shouldn't judge on appearances, but any guesthouse owner that invests that much time in their garden must take pride in their rooms!

In short, the room was great; spacious enough to store our surfboards (having surfed at Surf and soul in Varkala and with a clean and comfortable bed. Breakfast was lovely - lots of fresh fruit and eggs any way you like, served with a smile by the owner David and his wife.

I would definitely return to Delight and was sorry we couldn't stay longer. The location is also ideal - a short walk from the action in Fort Cochin.
