“A wonderful stay in Fort Kochi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014 via mobile

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at this quaint hotel at Christmas. The room was clean & fresh with good hot water. The garden was well maintained and Leslie made us feel welcome & was helpful in recommending good eateries. I would recommend this delightful place & would love to go back.

All about this comfortable family owned hotel was excellent from food to clean rooms. The owner and staff were absolutely supportive and nice. Higly recomendable.
Walking distance from all points of interest but in a cozy n quiet environment
Only down is Wifi was not working well and only in the lounge

I stayed here for three nights and had an absolutely excellent time. The rooms were clean and the grounds were immaculate. Breakfast was great and the free wifi was very handy. Lesley was friendly and always willing to help, as were his staff and the location could not be better. Would recommend to anyone!

Great place in the middle of Fort Kochi - but quiet with lovely green garden, which sits between the house and the street. The owner Lesley and his wife are friendly, but not overly so, and looked after us really well. They welcomed our friends from the US in the early hours of the morning! The rooms are clean, and attractive in an old-fashioned way. It is essentially a small hotel, but in a large old house. Breakfasts were great (cafetiere coffee!). We ate out each night. There is a lovely terrace in the garden - but a bit mozzyish when we were there to sit out for long. Lesley organised for a car and driver for us to go and visit a friend, and the Hill Palace and Folk Museum in Ernakulum (with an absolutely fantastic veggie lunch) - which worked really well.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the lower priced ones which was great - we had a look at the slightly dearer one...

Hotel is very conveniently located in Fort Kochi and at a walkable distance from all sightseeing spots. Rooms were clean, and the staff very helpful, polite and friendly. Food offered  in the restaurant/cafe' is great, and the breakfast was enjoyable. A nice place to relax and highly recommended.

Very beautiful location, clean, excellent food in the restaurant, friendly staff. One of the best places to stay when in Kerala! Wifi is available and also you can book trips from the reception. Central location with close access to the bars and stores around.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013

We had gone last year in the month of October and stayed at the room just above the gate with an attached terrace. The room was relatively small but was ok for four of us, two adults and two kids. Beds and furnishing was good and the bathroom tub was huge. The disappointing thing was that the terrace was never cleaned and was full of rotting leaves. We also had a lizard in the room although the staff did try to catch it they were unable to and with my older daughter sleeping on the floor it was discomforting to have one in the room. There was no water kettle or coffee maker in the room but the staff was helpful...they provided us with hot drinking water at any time of the day. Breakfast is continental, it would be good if they can add some Indian option such as Dosa/ Idli etc to bring variety as it become pretty boring to have the same menu every day. Location is good....walking distance from all tourist places, relatively quiet but no great views. We had hired two cycles and were able to manage all the places on our own.

shobaCochin, Owner at Ann's Residency, responded to this review, 4 December 2013
Thank you for taking time to review our property. We wish to clarify your comments. The room near the gate as you say, was a super deluxe room which we gave for a discount rate. With two children in the room, it would be congested and we asked you to take two rooms which you did not agree to. Usually we allow only one extra person in a room but in your case we obliged you. The terrace is always cleaned but since there is a mango tree which covers the terrace , there is always leaves especially during the month of October. But the place outside your room has a covered courtyard where there would be no leaves. Anyway we apologise for the inconvenience in this regard and would certainly look into the matter. I am surprised to note your comments on lizards. You , being an Indian from Bangalore would definitely be used to one or two lizards around. We had sprayed your room for the same on your request. We provide mineral water to all guests free of cost the first day after which they have to buy . We do not provide water in a jug as most of our foreign guests do not like it and do not use it. But we provide the same to Indian guests who request for it. You yourself say you were provided with hot water on demand every time . Breakfast is continental which is complimentary. We have all Indian breakfast which we provide on demand only on payment. Since you wanted it complementary, we could not provide it. Even then, we provided you with milk and all other food not included in the complementary breakfast for children free of cost. Fortcochin is not a hill station but a relatively quiet place away from the city with lovely Portuguese and dutch architecture .You stayed in a room with direct view to our well maintained garden ,photos of which have been taken by many guests in the same room. We would also like to mention that you made an early check in and late check out for which you were not charged. In spite of this, you had asked for a further discount which we could not oblige. We appreciate your efforts to review our property whether it be bad or good as our readers are our best judges.
