What a wonderful place. I don't want to gush too much at a risk of seeming over the top.
Incredibly kind and professional staff.
Unbeatable location.
Beautifully appointed rooms and gorgeous grounds.
Fantastic restaurant.

Wholeheartedly recommended to any traveler, the highlight of our India trip.

We spend the first days of our india trip at this wonderful place.
It is very close to the center and everything is within walking distance.
The place itself has a wonderful garden and the rooms are spacious and have all you need.
Also the hosts are very very friendly and always helpful in organizing whatever you need or want. I can totally recommend the place and would love to come back one day

Room Tip: The rooms in the back are quieter than the ones located at the entrance, but it is still a quiet par...

We had visited Ann's residency in December 2014 . We booked two rooms . Approach is little difficult to find . It is quite inside from multiple streets . Convenient place to stay if you want to spend more time in fort Kochi.

First impression is . Room sizes are average . Bathrooms are good . One room did not have TV . In other room TV was almost portable size . It is nice to see mosquito net on beds . Though the flipside is , you can not use bed for sitting during the day and also there was hole in net . ( Though they provided us with good night)
Owner Mr laisley was friendly and helpful . Place is clean , green and beautiful . Though it has one dirty drain going just in front .
My mother had fast and she needed separate food in breakfast and Mr laisely was kind to arrange it himself. Many thanks to him for this.
In dinner the food was very average and the main problem was that we kept waiting for more than an hour .
Overall the place is nice , if you are looking for a homely environment but not if you are looking a lavish stay.

A well-maintained, extremely pleasant place that I liked from the minute I stepped in.The location is superb, 2 minutes away from the main shopping area, yet quiet and tranquil. Rooms are comfortable and clean and garden is ideal to sit in and relax, and the very good breakfast is served on the veranda- a nice start to the day Owners are friendly and responsive. A great stay overall.

Room Tip: Try to avoid the room by reception/overlooking the veranda- can be potentially noisy.

We stayed over cristmax and new year. Everthing is good about Ann´s Residency locations is good, all major attractions are close to Ann´s, breakfast is great, always fresh fruit and toast and eggs.The room was nice and the bathroom is large and plenty of hot water. All staff is great and excellent restaurant is here with very good food, good choice to eat here. Leslie is a very helpful person and was always good to ask him for help. Good to have a man like Leslie to plan trips anywhere you wanted to go. Leslie has good cars and drivers as guides, too, which is a very good service. They go to interesting places and are very comfortable drivers. We felt like at home with Leslie and family. We hope to come back to you. Ann's Residency will be our first choice. Thanks for everything. Ásgerður og Haukur from Iceland

We stayed here our two first nights arriving in Kerala, between Dec 20-22, 2013.
The place is well maintained, have nice big rooms, a beautiful courtyard and has a perfect location. The breakfast was really nice with fresh fruit, fresh pineapple juice, omelette and strong coffee. Leslie really made us feel welcome and helped us finding a good cooking class one of the evenings. We would definitely like to stay here again in future visits to Kerala.
