We had a great stay at the Fort Bungalow for 2 nights. The hotel is beautiful and so peaceful. The rooms are a good size and beautifully decorated. The breakfast is fantastic and great to try some southern Indian delicacies. The hotel is just a few minutes walk from the Chinese fishing nets and other points of interest. We also walked to the Dutch palace. A very much recommended hotel for a stay in Kochi

The Fort Bungalow is clean and cosy. The owners and family go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The Fort Bungalow is located in a good area that's close to restaurants and a ATM. The waterfront is about a 15 minute walk from the accommodation. Breakfast is good and you can try some Indian treats that are home made.

Sweet Haven”

There is so much sweetness to be found staying here, from the owner's own self-avowed sweet talk, to his wife's sweet nature and smiles, to their daughter's sweet singing (which we were lucky to have the chance to hear)! The hotel is designed so beautifully, with an inner garden, beautiful artistic touches of color and antique items everywhere. It was such a relaxing stay, everyone so friendly, including such wonderful other guests who were drawn here and so easy to fall into lovely conversations with. Many thanks for the beautiful stay!

Wonderful and relaxing”

This is a lovely property. The newly built house and every room have been tastefully designed and decorated. The hospitality and breakfasts were also good. If you are there during the hot season I would recommend a room with AC. My only suggestion is to improve the wifi. It may not be a consideration for you if you're traveling but I was there for work and needed a strong and stable connection. Highly recommended.

We paid around £20 a night for our twin room in April and were delighted with the value. The house is very nice, and the rooms clean and new, with plenty of charm. Joseph and his wife were gracious hosts and the breakfast was outstandingly good. They also arranged a fantastic onward journey by houseboat. Totally recommend.

Unacceptable! ”

I booked this homestay for my parents as the reviews were so good but I realize it's a huge mistake. For a homestay in india, this price tag is already way too high. Firstly, My booking on agoda cost me roughly 15000+ rupees for 5d4n. At the hotel, they charged us extra 2000 rupees saying the rate is higher if booked online and advised to book directly with them. Only one bottle of drinking water was kept in the room for two person to share. The sleeping blanket was too thin and more like a bedsheet. The only thing good about the hotel was the architecture and the cleanliness. The most unacceptable of all were their tour arrangement for Kerala Backwater Houseboat. It was a total scam. My parents were led to the tour with few other white people but it was not an authentic houseboat. Instead it was just a rundown small boat with an elderly man struggling to peddle the boat by hand. It took 6 hours to and back almost sickening bored no where to move on the boat. It was just a fancy hotel

Not worth it ”

4500 roupia for a delux room single occupancy with tiny tiny tv no safe box, uncomfortable bed and pillows, super basic bathroom. And don't arrive before check in time, they will just ask you to go walking around without any care. I am a very frequent world traveller and would really not advise you to stay there. You can find much better for much better price. I also, the day before my departure, booked through the hotel owner a taxi to go to my reserved boat in kumarakom to do the backwaters (really worth it!), he said sure no problem. And the next morning, last minute said to me he can not find taxi. Not reliable. I really don't understand the good reviews about this hotel. Additionnaly, the price you will need to pay at the hotel (because you'll have to pay at the hotel...) will be 10 percent more expensive than your Agoda confirmed all taxes included reservation. Euh. NEVER happened to me before.
