“Nice B&B Near Ferry Station”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

We stayed in Fort Inn seven nights. It is a nice place to stay. Close to the Ernakulam ferry station and not far from other Kochi attractions like Chinese Fishing Nets.

Leena, the manager, is a very kind and pleasant lady. Ask her to prepare you a dinner and you'll have a different view about the Kerala style food. She speaks English and is very capable.

A lovely way to travel in smaller areas of India. This home stay was pleasant and delightful. Close to small shops and restaurants and near the water. Very easy to walk everywhere or take the boat across the water for spa treatments. We stayed 6 nights. If you are not used to Indian style bathrooms, the shower and toilet are all in the same space. We adapted well. Lovely staff, includes breakfast and tea. They will do your laundry too.

We arrived in Fort Kochi on Saturday 4th May on the ferry from Ernakulam. We had no idea where we were going and so followed everyone else as we hoped it would lead to some sort of town centre. We had massive rucksacks on and had already walked a fair distance so were visibly knackered. Suddenly we were accosted by a woman offering us a cheap double room (500 rupees)- needless to say we were a bit suspicious, as any traveller is when offered something, but we checked it out and decided we'd go for it. Our room was none AC, over looking the road, with two single beds pushed together. It was totally clean, had a working TV which received american film channels, a decent ensuite, and spacious to boot. I mean that is already luxury to a couple of travellers, but to cap it all there was WiFi available in the hallway for 30 rupees a day, and Linda and Thomas were like parents to us. We ended up staying there a week, we loved it that much. Linda helped us out with places to visit, told us about festivals and even ended up putting the price down on the room. Her son lent my friend his tablet when she needed to Skype home as mine had broken. Don't even consider staying anywhere else, you wouldn't enjoy fort kochi half as much. Its located just north of the ferry landing from ernakulam, and you only need to walk 5 minutes to reach the tourist hub. Word of advice though- the hippies next door are awesome, but don't hop the balcony as I did, the police are likely to get involved!

Room Tip: They are all of the same high standard, but the room at the back is likely quieter as its not overlo...

We didn't get to stay at this inn but were fortunate enough to experience the friendliness and warmth of the lovely couple that manage it, Linda and Thomas. On a night that was difficult to navigate the area of Fort Kochi due to power blackouts and the fact that it was Good Friday, they took us in off the street. My brother and I, having just arrived in Fort Kochi, were walking in darkness, searching for a place to have an evening drink and snack when we decided to ask a lone stranger for some advice. As he was explaining our futile situation, a woman hurriedly approached us from the building he was standing in front of. As her english was much better, she explained why nothing was open at that time and why there was a blackout. However, realising that we had just arrived in Kochi, she took it upon herself to invite us in to her own private dining area where we sat with her husband to enjoy some fresh bananas and mangoes along with some lovely chai and quite a few glasses of irish whiskey which had been gifted to Thomas and was still in the box when he brought it out. We enjoyed a great evening of conversation with this lovely couple who also organised a backwater cruise for us the next day, complete with a traditional indian breakfast cooked by Linda herself. This couple really put the 'home' in homestay and I would head straight there if I ever visited Fort Kochi again.
