Amazing Colonial Bungalow and great for family

Review of Le Colonial
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 22 Jun 2017
Visited recently in a group of 5 families. We had the whole place to us and really enjoyed every part of it. The rooms, the furniture, the prints on the walls, the old books, the food, the staff, all wonderfully managed by Smita who made us feel very much at home. Next door the church where Da Gama was first buried, opposite the Cochin club, super location. Can't think of anything that could have been better.
Date of stay: June 2017
Room Tip: The Viceroy room is the best. If you have kids, there are sets of 2 rooms together that you can...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your kind and appreciative feedback about the Le Colonial heritage hotel in Kochi.

It is extremely rewarding to read about your visit to the 16th century mansion in Fort-Kochi, Kerala and we are pleased to learn that you had an enjoyable stay at the property.

We are pleased to receive your appreciation about the location, the rooms, the furniture, the décor. We have shared your kind words to our Chairman as he heads the restoration work.

Your appreciation about the staff is very heartening as these are all local persons who also share the pride of the restored property. We have conveyed your gracious words to Miss Smita Daruwala.

We thank you for your visit and hope that as you continue to discover real India with Neemrana, you'll certainly find more to tell us about !

Warm Regards,
Team Neemrana.

What a wonderful place... Wonderful ambience, wonderful service and absolutely beautiful rooms. We actually stayed in the Viceroy room which was absolutely stunning. Air conditioning was wonderful to walk in to.. Smita was a delight and made sure we were looked after, food was excellent and what you requested... I had home made cottage pie on two different occasions it was delicious. Within easy reach of all the sites of Fort Kochi. I cannot speak to highly of this hotel and must not forget Sumesh who along with Smita seemed to be there whenever you wanted anything or had a question. Having now seen it on The Real Marigold Hotel I can only say it is even better in real life.

Room tip: any room is brilliant but the Viceroy is outstanding

Since we are Portuguese, decided to visit Kochi because of the first Europeans who arrived at India - namely Vasco da Gama, who died in this city; supposedly has lived in the house now occupied by Le Colonial Hotel - a beautiful, well preserved, extremely comfortable human scale hotel. Couldn't have chosen better!
Extremely kind, attentive and professional staff.
We had a light meal on arrival which was really tasteful.
Hotel is at close, walking distance, to all relevant visiting sites in Fort Kochi, including shops and restaurants (generally surprisingly good).
Had the chance to stay in Fort Kochi during the Art Biennale - again a fantastic surprise!

Room tip: Think all are good and nice

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your kind and appreciative feedback!

We are delighted to learn that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay at Neemrana's Le Colonial and pleased that you got a chance to relax in proximity to local attractions such as the St. Francis' Church & the seaside.

Your compliments about the staff and the hospitality reinforce the Neemrana 'non-hotel' Hotel philosophy and would go a long way in acting as a source of motivation & encouragement.

As you continue to explore more of India with us, we look forward to welcoming you back!

Warm regards,

We stayed here for five nights. The food is worthy of a top restaurant and the talented chef will adapt to your taste. The rooms are beautiful, clean, spacious and comfortable. We stayed in the Viceroy suite which is stunning. Smita, the manager is very helpful and friendly. This historic hotel is an oasis with first class and service at reasonable prices. Only a few rooms (7 or 8?), each one different. After checking out nearby sights it was lovely to return and relax poolside. Heaven.
