“Friendly place and peaceful location”
Reviewed 23 October 2011

After a bustling noisy trip to Delhi, me and 5 of my friends decided to visit God's Own Country.
We chose Anns Residency from recommendation by a friend who had stayed there in the past.
The peaceful and well maintained hotel was a delight to stay at. The stay was very relaxing and the location so peaceful and quiet. The Owner Mr. Leslie, gave us plenty of tips on just about everything and was very friendly. Had many eating joints nearby like Dal Roti, yummy food and loved being close to the beach .

I had just gone though some serious hard core traveling and arrived into Cochin totally bedraggled and worn out. I wasn't really sure where to go and told the auto rik at the Cochin bus station to take me to Ft.Cochin, that's all I had to go....he stumbed into Ann's Residency in Ft.Cochin and and as soon as I set foot into the very welcoming and hospitable place, all my cares went away and basically found it to be paradise. It is a residency or home stay with a wonderful family, Ann, her husband Leslie and their adorable daughter Maria. Great Place, great location, so helpful were they in booking flights, the backwater trip, and using their wifi computer. Sleeping under the mosquito net, listening to the monsoon rain and frogs sent me off to drreamland knowing a great breakfast and coffee was waiting for me...I'd stay there again in a heartbeat! Thank you family!!!!

Stayed at Anns Residency , a lovely homestay that oozes earthy character and charm. The host Leslie Fernandez a friendly guy gives you a warm welcome and is very helpful in giving useful tips and arranging outdoor tours to enjoy your holidays. The rooms here are modern with well kept bathrooms with bath tub. The atmosphere is fresh, chic and stylish. There is a beautiful garden , charming and a serene place to relax. A sumptuous breakfast is provided in the outdoors. There is also a library with vast collection of books. We enjoyed our stay in this charming place full of character and friendly owners.

Coming from France and visiting South India with my wife, we followed the advices of the book "Guide du Routard" and stayed in Kochi at Anns Residency. The Welcome of M.Fernandez is perfect, the hotel is very clean , garden is very beautiful and M.Fernadez pay a lot of attention on it. Room was wide and there were AC and a bed protection against mosquitoes.M. Fernandez was very kind with us and book the reservation for a tour in the backwaters and also let me his computer to book an internet plane reservation.

It is one on the best hotel stay we had in India and I recommand Anns Residency for frech people visiting Kochi, in south India.

We stayed at Anns for 3 nights. We had finished our tour of North India and came to Anns for our South India tour. It is really a wonderful place and very friendly family. Great hosts. Leslie the owner arranged tours to Periyar and Munnar including cab and stay. In all our tours of North India and South, we completely enjoyed staying at Anns the best. We wanted to cook food and we bought jumbo prawns and on our request this friendly family cooked them,and also fish curry in kerala style, chappattis along with us and it was like a family get together. It was a totally different experience. The hotel itself is situated in exotic location and very near to all the touristic places in fortcochin. Great breakfast and well kept rooms and very friendly helpful owners. Definitely would come back and also highly recommed this place to all.

Had a wonderful stay in this small boutique hotel for 4 nights. This hotel is located in a quiet location in beautiful natural surroundings. It is a pleasure to sit out and enjoy the natural beauty or watch the fishes and birds. The rooms are bright and airy and spotlessly clean with TV.comfy beds,bath and are cleaned every day. Staff are warm and welcoming. The owners are friendly without being intrusive and very helpful. Excellent breakfast is provided which is included in the tariff. This beautiful place located in a cental area, very close to the beach(just 5 minutes to walk to all the sightseeing areas) is like a sanctuary and you get sound sleep. A place worth the money you spent.

Room Tip: All rooms here are different , bright and sunny. Balcony rooms are few .
