A very elegant hotel with excellent staff and service. The hotel is also truly historical and you tend to get lost in time. Do spend some time looking at the artwork and the architecture of the building. The rooms are well appointed, clean and extremely comfortable. Oh and the Chef is superb :)
This is the most gorgeous find in ALL of Fort Kochin!! Steeped in history, the house is filled with gorgeous art and every little nook and cranny has a story. The attention to detail is amazing and done in such good taste. The staff is extremely friendly and the food is beyond delectable. I highly recommend Le Colonial to anyone looking for an authentic experience in Fort Kochin.
Staying at Le Colonial is being bathed in luxury while you are attended by lovely people who quickly become your best friends. There isn't a reception but there is a hugely warm welcome. There isn't a menu but there is a great chef. Leaving is looking forward to when you will return.
A seriously gorgeous hotel. Well worth the stay. Excellent staff and wonderful food. A truly historical house beautifully restored to the highest standards. A living room with lovely touches that makes a visitor feel at home. A pool that feels a million miles from the hustle of the streets outside. What a wonderful way to take a break from the hassles of your usual week.
We've come several times to Kochi and there is no place as Le Colonial : a splendid historical spot in a perfect location, where every detail counts : decoration, food (fantastic), kindness and efficiency of the team and of course the swimming-pool. It has been really difficult to leave the place...
We just spent two weeks in India, traveling across Tamil Nadu and Kerala from heritage hotels to heritage homes and Le Colonial is definitely the best place we stayed in. We loved the style of the house and the quality of the service. All rooms are beautifully decorated, the staff is extremely nice, attentive and discreet. The small restaurant (Le Colonial only has 7 rooms) has a limited menu but the food (Indian or Continental) is just delicious.
I stay in Kochi but had never heard about this Hotel before. It was my son & Daughter-in-law (who live in the U.S) who found out about this in the Travel sites and sponsored our two day staycation here. For me & my wife, It was two days of pure heavenly relaxation and indulgence in their culinary specialities. This building which was once the Dutch Governor General's residence is now converted into the Hotel. It has only seven rooms but each one of them have been very meticulously planned and designed. The Architecture is typically British/European with high ceilings and wooden floors , a bathroom which was huge and provided with Bathtub, separate shower and Double washbasin. The entrance to the Hotel has a beautiful garden with Orchids and other variety of flowers. The…
Magnificent renewed colonial Portuguese house transformed into a charming hotel with 7 rooms. Located at the heart of the historical part of Cochin. Decoration of colonial style is of very high quality. Staff is very nice and attentive. Room rates include lunch or dining and cooking is of good quality, mostly of Kerala cooking style.
We stayed 2 nights in Le Colonial. We loved the spaciousness of the property on the ground floor, the beautiful rooms on the first floor and the discreet attention of the staff. There was a homely feeling about the place and everything was just perfect from the setting and attention given to details right to the meals prepared for us. We got a free upgrade to larger room as the hotel was not sold out at the time of our stay and this was of course much appreciated also.
A really beautiful boutique hotel. So much history, amazing artwork and memorabilia and a lovely feel throughout. Spacious, beautifully furnished rooms with a truly colonial feel. I could easily have spent a week or two here enjoying the house and garden and also so much to see and do close by. Courteous, friendly yet discreet staff who went out of their way to please. A wonderful experience all round and without doubt the best hotel in Fort Cochin.
