Was due to stay at The Old Harbour Hotel but the renovations were not complete, so was booked into the Malabar House Hotel's swish designer annex, Trinity. Located across the cricket/football pitch, it comprises three en-suite bedrooms above an up-market fashion shop. The standard of furnishing is very high, ultra-modern but comfortable too. Good location for getting around Fort Cochin as the auto-rickshaws are never far away, and within walking distance of the Chinese fishing nets etc. There is a plunge pool at Trinity, but guests can also use the pool and facilities at the parent Malabar property two minutes walk away (the restaurant was very good here). This is a beautiful property but is also very expensive by Indian standards.
