Neemrana's Tower House
Ranked #46 of 211 Hotels in Kochi (Cochin)
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We stayed at Tower House twice in May 2014, 3 days the first time and 5 days the second. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are all fantastic. Common areas are full of wonderful period furniture and interesting objects. Being a Neemrana 'non hotel' hotel means the service is limited to a breakfast buffet which is limited but very adequate. This limited service means the prices compared with other 'colonial' upmarket hotels in Fort Kochi are very competitive. You will not find a cheaper colonial property with a similar ambience.

The Tower House was the perfekt place to relax between sightseeing and shopping in Kochi. We loved our room "Allbuquerque" because it had a lot of space for the three of us (two adults, one girl of 8 years) and furnished in a beautiful herritage style. The room was just a few steps from the nice pool.
The breakfast was excellent with indian and european dishes. The service was excellent!

Room Tip: Albuquerque ideal for families!

We loved the colonial style of this spacious place! The pool was cherished, even though there were too many birds close to the water. The location is perfect, you can reach everything by foot. The staff was very friendly and efficient. Breakfast was nice.

A stunning vintage property in a great location to all Fort Kochi amenities. Rooms are spacious with the benefit of air con and WiFi connection and the swimming pool is a real bonus. Common areas are beautifully furnished providing opportunity for relaxation. Staff are friendly and efficient adding to the home from home feel. Would stay here again.

Located just within walking distance from all the major musts, behind the walls, in the garden and the large house itself, the ghosts of the past centuries creates most extraordinary atmosphere.
Also furniture and decorations are well restored and honoured. Rooms are spacious with antique
furnitures.
Service is individual and very friendly. Restaurant menu is interesting and food well prepared.
Continental breakfast is simple and tasty.
Streetside rooms suffer from the traffic sounds..

Disclaimer: I love Neemrana properties!

On our last day of Kerala trip, we stayed at the Tower House and it was a wonderful experience. I liked the location - in the evening we stepped out of the hotel (or non-hotel) to see the chinese fishing nets and then roamed around Fort Kochi to discover great restaurants. Rooms were very comfortable and staff was super helpful. I'd recommend this place if you want are planning to spend some time in Fort Kochi.

I really liked this place--beautifully restored colonial manor, right but the chinese fishing nets in Fort Kochi. The public spaces are gorgeous and the rooms are each unique and lovely. I arrived late at night and got the last room available, in the front of the house that can be quite noisy. I was so tired I slept great and barely noticed the noise. However, the next morning, without my asking, the staff informed me they were moving me to a quieter room in the back, which was larger and much nicer. Very kind of them to offer.

The place has a gorgeous pool but I never got a chance to use it. The AC works great, the facilities are good if a little basic. Don't expect any TVs but the Wifi signal was fantastic. As others have noted, the breakfast was a little basic but enough for me. They will make you eggs on demand to augment the fruit, toast, and muffins offered.

I would definitely stay again if I were in the area.

Room Tip: In the back are quirt.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Tower House sits facing the Chinese fishing nets, marking the spot of a 17th century light house which has given it the name. Cannon balls once fired out from its thick bastion-walls. This scallop-walled twin-house looks rather like a ship and indeed, boats were brought in on high tide and parked downstairs in its stable and dry dock! Since 1982, it is owned by Peirce Leslie. The character of The Tower House lies in its unpretentious yet proud bearing, almost grandfather like, it sits looking out over the sea, a spirit of adventure surrounds it even today, taking one back to stories of high seas told and retold over centuries. Stately colonial pillars hold up its vast, high-ceilinged halls. The generous arched doors welcoming one to step in to another world where time stretches, pauses to watch the sun set, and then moves ever so lightly towards dawn. Yes it’s the magic of spaces that have seen more history than we will ever see, spaces that we know will still be there to delight those who come long after us. The furniture is an eclectic mix with no attempt to recreate rooms of any one era or type because the residential structure was added on to. It’s the light pouring in through the windows, skylights and the vastness of the indoor spaces that make for an unforgettable experience. Most of the rooms have large four poster beds, and bathrooms that happily accommodate large tubs. The windows have views of the trees or the sea depending on where they are located. Restored to be compatible with present-day needs while maintaining its structural integrity, it reflects different periods rather than artificially being faithful to any single one. It takes you back in time, as moods and memories woven together create a fabric that is strong but sits ever so lightly. The above uncompromising principles of practical use of material and form dictated The Tower House renovation too and its adherence to these very values of being honest to the time we live in while respecting the past that has set new standards in heritage tourism. Discover the old world charm where, sailors, travellers, traders, planters feasted and danced under chandeliers, suspended from high wooden ceilings. ... more   less
