“A perfect place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

It is a beautiful colonial style building in the heart of Fort Kochi. Rooms are very spatial, clean and every room have a great view on the harbour. The stuff is competent and helpfull. Also some minor charming things are helping you to have a fantastic stay - an everyday fruit basket in your room, high quality ayuverdic cosmetics in the bathroom, fragrant flowers instead instant air fresheners, reversed osmosis water to drink (instead of non-ecological water in plastic bottles).
Hotel has many additional services: an ayuverdic center, cooking shows (free), sunset cruises (free). There is also a famous and one of the best in Kochi restaurant "The History".

This was the first stay in a luxury hotel in my life - I rather choose more economical options. Brunton Boatyard was worth its price. Fabulous view to the harbour entry is one of highlights of this hotel. You can admire eagles fights with ravens during breakfast. Interior of the Brunton Boatyard hotel is well preserved colonial style residency. Of course there is also excellent service, rooms are clean, there is Wi-Fi and water is reverse osmosis processed. The last highlight of Brunton Boatyard hotel is The History Restaurant - which was temporary moved to The Armory Restaurant in the same building - with extraordinary mix of Kerala cuisine from portuguese dishes including even pork to pure veg brahmin dishes.

My husband and I took our parents for a quiet dinner at Brunton Boatyard. The staff have impeccable manners and are so efficient, it's very pleasant for visitors. Take a little time to walk around the place as it is well-maintained and mirrors the charm of the past.
The main restaurant was under renovation, so we went to the cafe where we had a lovely, 'mixed' menu to choose from. We ordered several items and couldn't complain about any item. Try their spicy fish curry with red rice. It's delicious.

The perfect ending after a superb speaking trip in India. The Brunton Boatyard looks and feels old but is actually a relatively new hotel which has been built and designed to evoke times gone by. Awesome service and one of the best rooms I've ever stayed in anywhere. Highly recommended.

The Brunton Boatyard is a fantastic hotel to stay in Fort Kochi. The staff are so friendly and Saneesh the tuk tuk driver (recommended by reception) was a sure highlight of my time in Fort Kochi. Saneesh is friendly and accommodating and took me to hidden gems around Fort Kochi. He is priced fair & is a very trustworthy tour guide to discover Fort Kochi for the first time

Dined here as a part of a business conference in late March 2014- the food was good, however wouldn't advise to relish food outside for more than 2 hours as it gets hot and muggy at times. The restaurant reeks of Kochi's glorious past, and is certainly a feast to the onlooker.
