Review of Le Colonial
1.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Oct 2023
we have booked to stay two nights with this hotel on the 12th of September, from the 19th of the 21st and unfortunately had to cancel it on the 15th of September due to the nipah virus escalation in Kerala.
This Hotel did not care that we did not want to come anymore. They were pushing for us to come under this situation stating the virus was far away or telling us to come somewhen next near, knowing we are not indian tourist. They refused to refund our booking and we have tried several times to talk to the reception and reservation without any feedback. We have told to talk to a lady called Isabelle, who was never available and does not reply to our emails. Very bad way on handling guest, you see they are only interested in the money of their guests. Stay away!!
Date of stay: September 2023
Room Tip: Stay away, dont give them your credit cards details for the booking, Hotels in India are barely...

This property in Fort Kochi is simply amazing, super well located yet a calm and peaceful oasis from the wonderfully bustling streets. The rooms are tastefully appointed, the swimming pool is so beautiful we never wanted to leave it, the food is unbelievably tasty and the staff are simply amazing. Look no further, this is truly paradise.

We stayed for 3 nights at this superb hotel. It is beautiful colonial house, an oasis of calm in a tourist location. The staff were helpful and polite. The atmosphere is of being a guest in a country house rather than a hotel, with a wonderful wooden heritage decor. The food was excellent. Yes, it is expensive, but well worth every penny.

Built in 1506, this is the second oldest colonial bungalow in asia. One of the earlier residents was Vasco de Gama who died here and was buried in St Francis Church before his remains were removed to Portugal. Other notable resident was a French Naval officer Mahe de la Bourdonnaise who went north and coquered Malabar. The bungalow was then used by Dutch officers before it fell to British. 1605 AD was possessed by the Dutch and remined in Dutch possession till 17th Century when it fell in British hand and remained so till 1947. Many a Dutch, French and British colonial army and navy officers have stayed at this property

Present owners from France bought the property c. turn of the millennium and converted it in to a seven-bedroom resort with a swimming pool. Each room is named after colonial officers who had made significant contribution in colonial times.

Hotel Marigold series two was filmed in this hotel.

Dining area overlooks the pool and overlooks the garden. This is
tastefully decorated with outside lights and is suitable for romantic evening dinning. Cuisine is mixed Indian and European cuisine and all including bread and ice-cream if requested are prepared daily in house.

Rooms are attended to twice a day, in the morning for main cleaning and in the evening for turning down the bed. Bathrooms are very spacious and each room has a shower and a bath.

Staff are very friendly, attentive and meals are excellent and cooked to western taste.

This place is a must visit.

We just spend 4 night at the Colonial.
This historic house keeps on living thanks to the devotion of a family taking care of preserving the authenticity of this former colonial estate while pushing the standards at the highest level.
The furnitures and antiques have been selected with care, the atmosphere kept magic and the staff and managing team are incredibly pro and careful.

They make you fell like at home, with a step back in rhe colonial past.
There is nothing to change.

The pool and small garden are beautiful.
The meals served are perfectly executed and customized to your choice: possibility to choose between continental or Indian dishes.

Incredible and Wonderful place! A must stay place.
