What a beautiful hotel. We re routed here as Munnar was out of the question due to the floods. We had a wonderful two night stay, all the staff made us very welcome especially Suresh who was very helpful when my husband thought he'd lost his watch. The furnishings are elegant and classy, everywhere was spotlessly clean. Le Colonial is well situated for exploring Fort Kochi. I don't have enough superlatives to describe the food. It was top notch, the homemade coconut ice cream was out of this world as was the seafood platter. What a talented Chef. We were sad to leave, it was such a relaxing stay. Le Colonial is a real jewel in the crown.
We went to the hotel for lunch as were staying just around the corner and so wanted to see this hotel that was on the tv programme. The staff were so welcoming and lovely and even showed us around the building which is beautiful, We shall definitely stay there on our next visit!! The set lunch was so delicious and we went away very happy ladies!! So pleased we had not been deterred by the security guard that had told us you had to be resident to dine at the hotel, which was contrary to the info on the website and we telephoned and booked a table for lunch. It was a highlight of our holiday so thank you to the staff and owners.
Lovely rooms in keeping with the colonial style. They were clean and comfortable. The hotel has only eight rooms with enough lounges to get privacy. Reminded me a lot of Real Marigold the film and it came as no surprise that BBC used for there season 2 Real Marigold Staff are very helpful and courteous and can’t do enough for you to be comfortable! Food is excellent and you can order as you like in the morning Subash and his team do a great job and really made our stay enjoyable! Highly recommend!
This is our second visit to Cochin and what a little gem this hotel is, it’s like home from home, the furnishings and decor are amazing, it’s very well situated and the staff can’t do enough to make your stay as comfortable as possible. And yes it is where they filmed the second series on the BBC. Fabulous.
Hidden behind the adjacent street market the hotel was difficult for our taxi driver to find.Close to the Chinese nets and the promenade of Cochin Fort this hotel was a very pleasant surprise. A small hotel with 6 bedrooms. Ours " Jan Van Spall" was large with two double beds, a well appointed bathroom, a beautiful Malabar spruce floor and a large balcony over looking the hotel's small pool and garden. The staff were attentive and very friendly. Dinner was included in the price of our room. There was no menu, just what the chef fancied cooking, which was very good. A great start to out holiday. We stayed two nights which was sufficient to acclimatise and see what there was to see in Fort Cochin
