“Great heritage atmosphere but expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Location is excellent, in the middle of the old town, close to sights. Rooms are comfortable and full of colonial character. Not much space to relax in the hotel outside of your room, it's a common area between reception lobby and restaurant. Hotel forgot to send airport transfer leaving me to make my own way. This was rather inconvenient given that I landed 6am in the morning and tired. They made up for this inconvenience by offering a free dinner, plus my taxi from the airport was a lot cheaper then their transfer charges so not too bad a situation. Lovely atmosphere at dinner with live classical music. concierge was good at recommendations/bookings of activities. I would love to stay here again if it didn't come with such a high price tag.

Welcoming and relaxing. The Princess suite with four poster bed, sitting room and balcony were luxurious and well air conditioned. Gardens and pool delightful and choice of eating inside or out. Lovely to have breakfast individually served and not lukewarm buffet.

Room Tip: Princess suite! Up stairs however..

What a perfect place to stay. The location is ideal.The hotel is colonial in style, quite small with lovely rooms. The grounds are small but the pool and garden are lovely. A restaurant with outside dining offers a wide range of beautifully cooked food. The pool feels magical. Rooms have names not Numbers. The staff make you feel so welcome. Faultless

Room Tip: 'Napier' was a lovely room

We decided after three weeks on an Ayurvedic health retreat that Kochi would mark our re-entry into the world, and in theOld Harbour we could not have chosen better. This hotel is full of character and it oozes charm, helped by its prime location in lovely Fort Cochin.
The rooms are well-appointed, the beds comfortable, and the staff attentive to all questions and queries - a big thank you to Pablo, Vineethar and Sukesh.
Not only is the hotel lovely, the food served on the delightful garden is excellent, the kitchen produces and very successful fusion of Indian and European cooking.
This is the sort of hotel you don't really want to leave.

Great location, amazing pool, lovely staff and excellent food. Our room "Tower" was spacious and comfortable with a lovely garden facing balcony. The spa was also excellent, a massage after a long transfer is a must.
