We've just spent 3 nights at the Old Harbour Hotel. The staff, no matter how picky you're feeling couldn't be faulted. Courteous, helpful and always smiling, they can't do enough for you.
Outside shower is fine - we're told that in the rainy season you may share it with tiny frogs, but apart from the occasional fly it was devoid of wildlife. Everywhere is very clean, food is yummy, and the spice content will be adjusted on request if you want flavour without too much heat.
There is a busy road nearby, it didn't intrude into our garden room so no disturbances to disrupt sleep.
Downside - minimal, no patio furniture so we took out a room chair, and a small table was brought to us when we wanted drinks on the patio - it stayed there (without us needing to ask) for the rest of our stay. I'd happily recommend staying here, unless you want late night partying. The average age of guests is not young, so evenings are quiet, if you're a party animal, this may not be for you. If you want quality, care, and a restful break, then it definitely will be.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At the heart of ancient Fort Cochin, Kerala, a place that exudes history and culture, is the 'Old Harbour Hotel.' A 300 year-old building that has for long been a heritage monument of this town, now reopened as a boutique hotel. Built in the Dutch style of architecture with hints of Portuguese influences, it was the first hotel of old Cochin. Later it remained a residential home to employees of English Tea broking firms until it was left unused for a period of time. ... more less
