“very classy Hotel in Kochi”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

I stayed in Brunton Boatyard, The hotel is simply superb and they have maintained the property very well.The staff is very polite and helpful and goes extra mile to take care of the guests.
The rooms facing the harbour are superb. The decor is simple but exceedingly well maintained and definitely an experience in itself to stay here.The breakfast is very good and the staff is also very good. Overall a very pleasurable stay. The tea in room is very good.

Room Tip: One should opt for room facing the Harbour , though it may be a bit noisy but it has lot of activity...

Dear Sir

We thank you for being with us. As hoteliers what gives us pleasure more than anything else is to know that you have enjoyed every bit of your time here.
We call it the tea tasting box and it offers a unique experience and relevance to fort kochi, as it is from here still that tea is exported to the world. We hope to see you back on your next visit.

A wonderful hotel with excellent service, great atmosphere, good dining and wonderful location. The swimming pool is perfect on a hot day. Quality of sleep is topnotch! Get a room overlooking the harbour and they give you earplugs so the boats won't disturb your sleep. Wifi is free and the password is changed daily.

I was travelling with a book club that reads then travel to the places where the books take place. We spent 3 nights at the Brunton Boatyard. It was a lovely experience. Mornings on our balcony watching the activity on the water, breakfast on the patio , afternoon strolls in Cochin , swimming, even sunset cruise, they have it all and know how to make you feel at home. I will go back.

Room Tip: Our room was on the ground level close to the dining room, looking out on the water. Prefect

I didn't stay here but had lunch with my family. The menu for a Sunday lunch is extremely limited and certainly doesn't provide much in the way of seafood options bearing in mind the surrounding market stalls and other hotels sell it by the bucket. Also, customer service is non existent. We had simple request to move one tiny table from an empty inside restaurant to the terrace that had plenty of space for one extra table that would help accommodate our party of six. The refusal was on the basis that "management don't normally do this" with no other rationale. Brunton Boatyard needs to learn that the customer is king, not some unwritten management policy. We finally got a table when someone else vacated but it's not the point. When we did eat, food was average at best and service just reasonable. We won't be going back nor recommending to people.

We stayed in this hotel for 6 nights at the beginning of November 2013.It is a beautiful hotel built in a colonial style.It has a strong Ecological footprint which is the theme for the CGH Earth (Good Clean Hotel ) chain.
All the staff were very friendly but one stood out.This was Vandanna ;the Front of House Manager.She asked us if we had booked a Houseboat.We hadn't at this point and felt that we probably would not be able to as we had booked a full 6 nights at the hotel.Without bothering us,she arranged to transfer one of our nights booking to an overnight stay on the Houseboat so that there was no extra charge.She arranged the taxi to take us and bring us back to the hotel the following day in order to continue our stay there.We had an idyllic time on the Houseboat,thanks to her.We have travelled extensively and we have never seen this level of service and initiative by a member of staff.CGI Earth you have a brilliant member of staff.You really need to treasure her.
Thank you one and all for a great trip.

This is a very pleasant, relaxing spot with comfortable rooms, good restaurants, and good service. Built on the site of an old boatyard, it has good design & lovely furnishings. The rooftop terrace restaurant has excellent seafood cooked to order and a beautiful view of the harbor. The complimentary sunset harbor cruise is an added plus.

Thank you for being with us and also to share this experience. I am happy to know that you have enjoyed the Brunton experience especially the terrace grill. It is a great location with the view of the ferry and it makes you feel you are in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the Fort Kochi. All this while you enjoy the delicious seafood with some Indian wine. Thank you again for staying at Brunton and hope to see you on your next visit.
