We had a relaxed few days at the Old Lighthouse hotel staying in the lovely sea view deluxe room. Unfortunately, my 6 year old son came down with a virus and was ill for most of our stay. The hotel & the staff could not have been more kind or helpful; you could tell they really cared about their guests,...

This fort Kochi hotel is right adjacent to Arabian sea, next to a small beach(I think, Mahatma Gandhi beach). It was a bungalow of the British chief engineer, who developed kochi port, later acquired and coverted to a heritage hotel. You can see sea from the balcony of your room, where you can sit and read books. Clean rooms, bathrooms,...

My flight was delayed so I arrived extremely late for my check-in, and they were exceptionally kind and helpful. I was amazed. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful, and the hotel is well-situated in Kochi. The room was very nice, clean and comfortable. They helped me get transportation to the next part of my trip. I really appreciated their hospitality...

We splurged a bit our last night in Kerala on a room upgrade at the Old Lighthouse Bristow Hotel. We were not disappointed. First, the building itself is wonderful, in the grand old Dutch style of South India. The suite they gave us was spectacular--spacious and well appointed. The view of the beach from our private porch was shaded and...

My friend and I spent our first 2 nights in India sharing a ground floor twin room near the restaurant at Old Lighthouse Bristow. The hotel is a lovely colonial building and the staff are pleasant. The wifi was very patchy. The room was exceptionally compact but I loved the view from just outside the room of the sea wall...

Charming colonial buiding in a mature garden, bedrooms with high ceilings, a good restaurant with a range of dishes and very friendly, helpful staff, who helped us with a couple of trips. Quiet, clean pool with shady trees, plus cable TV for our teenagers. Popularity of beers sometimes exceeded supply. Book direct with hotel for better prices. We saw porpoises...

Room was rather compact. No hot water- only barely lukewarm water. Hotel advised us that they had switched on the heater and we should have hot water within 10 minutes. There was no improvement after 45 minutes! When we complained, were told that the hotel only catered for lukewarm water (take it or leave it!!). We had stayed on a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Chic luxury heritage boutique hotel in Fort Kochi. This is the latest treasure that has been created with great outdoor dining by the sea, one of the only spas that offers both western and traditional treatments in the area, and an infinity pool with great views of the sea and the English style garden. The indoor lounge is fantastic for a relaxing evening. The lighthouse bears witness to many a ship passing by and the ships that sail by seem to walk into the property. The hotel was the residence of the founder of Cochin port Sir Robert Bristow and has been receiving great reviews from all its guests. The hotel is a true sanctuary to relax and rediscover yourself. ... more   less
