We stayed in a large room which was decorated in simple colonial style and there was a beautiful old four poster bed. The bathroom was large and very clean with lovely stained glass windows. The staff were friendly and breakfast was simple but good (only toast seemed a little stale?). Good value for classic a colonial hotel in a great...

If you’re looking to save money, or if you’re into faded glory, this is probably fine. If you like a little bit of basic modern facilities, go somewhere else. The staff is nice enough, the rooms are kinda clean, and with AC, which is a relief, and the hotel is in the center of Fort Kochi (a fairly small quarter...

I stayed at The Old Courtyard Hotel for two nights at the end of a three week visit to India in November with a friend. The hotel is well located for exploring all of Fort Cochin's main attractions and exuberates colonial charm. The staff were very helpful and welcoming and we were lucky enough that availability allowed us our complimentary...

Nice hotel with good spacious rooms, clean beds and friendly staff. No evening meal options and only cakes etc. We used Meena travel agency in the hotel and she was very helpful arranging theatre and a 2 night lake stay including driver etc to airport- would recommend. Fort Kochi is fairly busy tourist spot with limited things to do and...

The room was very clean and decor was great, firm bed and working ac unit. Room had lovely varnished wood floors, four poster bed and good bathroom. Located in the centre of Fort Kochi, the only thing that let it down was that it was fairly noisy at night. Definatly recommended

We went to this place in August 2015.This was the first stop of our holiday. I must say that start was extremely nice. The hotel has old heritage feel and look. The interiors are wooden, bathroom is very spacious and overlooking the courtyard. It has old wooden huge bed. They even provided a separate crib for my baby. The balcony...

Dear Sir/Madam, Thank you for your review and feedback. We are very happy to know that you enjoyed your stay with us.

Cannot speak highly enough of this wonderful heritage hotel. This was my third visit to Fort Kochi, the first at this property, and I would definitely stay here again. The location on Princess Street is unbeatable. I like smaller places and this has a friendly intimate vibe. The staff are wonderful. I think they got the level of restoration absolutely...

Dear Madam, Thank you for your feedback. It is unfortunate that your date of stay was when annual maintenance was being done on our limestone walls. As for the driver that took you to Munnar, it was a driver that you booked yourself and not through the hotel. You took the driver's number from our staff and called him directly...
