    Nice food, beautiful rooms and location (Right by the shore, you can see Dolphins out in the sea in the morning) and the staff are great too! If you are staying in Cochin, stay here!

    • Liked: Staff & service

    This rustic hotel is situated in a great location in Fort Kochi. Most of the hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Although the complimentary breakfast did not have a wide variety of selection, it is adequate and satisfying. The only negative points would be that the à la carte meal portions are quite meagre for dinner, given that you are paying for regular local prices for it. Also, the rooms and bathrooms have a noticeably pungent stench to them. It was hard to communicate with some staff members who do not speak much English. The wifi is unreliable because of the local weather which causes intermittent to extended internet disconnection. The hotel assisted us in organizing a backwater tour which we thoroughly enjoyed. The hotel also arranged for a driver to take us to Munnar. Despite the few shortcomings, I would still recommend this hotel overall - it is worth it for the price and value considering the convenient location.

    nice lobby and restaurant with good views over the sea but the rest of the hotel is shabby and in need of maintenance. the garden is badly maintained and sruffy so we didn't use it. there are broken tiles in the swimming pool. the swimming pool area is dirty and needs maintenance- i only used it on the first day because of this
