Good situation but found it rather noisy - air con unit humming, traffic going past and slamming of doors! Very helpful staff though, we were moved to the ground floor which was a bit quieter. An interesting menu, a mix of german, dutch and indian. Sadly no bar, no alcohol at all, bit of a shock!! Well maintained pool but...

Expectations were high being a CGH hotel and they were certainly met. We didn't stay here but had lunch and dinner on consecutive days. The set lunch was delicious and dinner the following night was equally good. Service was excellent. Also, live carnatic music on the evening. A must visit place in Fort Cochin

Great, comfy hotel. Our last two nights was in a great, spacious room (the first was not brilliant). A pleasant courtyard near the pool where you can breakfast and dine. The evening staff are helpful, but not great at sorting out the room problem we had on the first night. It was resolved the next day. Ask for the 3rd...

Thought this hotel represented really good value for money. The staff were very welcoming. We had a comfortable room and a good bathroom. Shower though could have been a bit hotter. We didn't eat in the restaurant which was a shame as we heard that the chef was extremely talented. Would happily return.

If this small hotel had a drinks licence we would not have left the hotel to eat. The chef is very talented and the small plates that we tasted at lunch time were pretty spectacular. A fusion of SE Asian and Indian contemporary cuisine which he hadn't found elsewhere on our travels in India. Breakfast was also very good with...

Loved this hotel. We had a large room which was very comfortable and a large well equipped bathroom. Breakfast was excellent. Staff charming and helpful. It's just a short walk to the beach to join others watching the sun go down.

What you want in Cochin is a good hotel in the right place and that's what you've got here. You can stroll to the Chinese fishing nets in about ten minutes and all of the walk is very pleasant and along the front of the beach. This is the area where everything is going on. People are promenading along the...
