We wanted a basic room that was clean and hygienic for just one night and nothing special and that is exactly what we got. We actually returned for another similar one-night stay last week and very happy.
The rooms are fine, the sheets, towels and floor are clean but of average quality. The fan and TV work but no hot water either time and you have to use the bucket as per. You're not going to want to roll on around on the bathroom floor but it's absolutely adequate for a simple night's stay and the door with mosquito nets were a plus.
The gardens are also worth mentioning, complete with tennis?/volleyball court, pretty birds, rabbits (and some particularly sorry-looking chickens) in cages that made for a nice atmosphere.
The staff are friendly and helpful carting our enormous bags to and fro and even stayed up to check us in at 1am on our first stay.
What we didn't realise is that, although a very sweet place to stay, it is quite inconveniently located. In the short time that we had, we weren't able to persuade any tuk tuk driver to take us into Fort Cochin for any price and we weren't left with many options nearby in terms of amusement or nourishment.
Thanks for lovely stay though and we would recommend this to anyone not bothered about location.
