              Staff is excellent- from chef, waiters and front desk (Akhil Ravi deserves a special mention). They all go out of the way to help. The CGH group of hotels seem good too. Location is excellent, clean, lovely pool and good restaurant.

              First visit to Kerala; this was my first hotel and it was an excellent choice. Welcoming, helpful Staff, very comfortable good quality room and facilities. Food was delicious. The property was thoughtfully designed, faultlessly clean and in a quiet location. Musicians' played on traditional instruments in the evening in the courtyard which was a lovely touch. A place to visit again.

              Slick boutique hotel with excellent restaurant”

              Nice, slick boutique hotel in a pleasant corner of Fort Kochi near St Francis Church. Excellent in-house restaurant, East Indies (no alcohol). Great staff at both reception and in the restaurant. Very relaxing place to stay. Only (small) disappointment was the quality of the house bicycles.

              An excellent boutique hotel, slightly overpriced”

              Location, staff, design

              My stay was excellent from beginning till the end. The staff were caring, food was excellent, design of the property is elegant and refined. Apart from the fact that the basic rooms are a bit undersized and not well soundproof, everything was excellent. However, the price charged for the room and the food is excessive for India. Even if the quality is top notch and it is high season, I felt a bit frustrated to be charged 5 star rates for a property which is 4 star and not even licenced.

              Amazing”

              Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, property was in a great location and wonderfully maintained and the breakfast was the best we've had in India

              We had 3 nights at Eighth Bastion and would have happily extended it another week if our schedule had allowed. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. And the facilities were great, lovely pool in the middle of the courtyard and the rooms were very spacious and well decorated. A highlight was the incredible talent in the kitchen and from the food and beverage manager Manjol and his team. We were welcomed into the kitchen whilst chefs demonstrated our favourite south indian breakfast speciality, its presentation was matched by its incredible taste. Dinner service was equally as delicious. We look forward to when they get their alcohol licence so we can enjoy some local wine matched with the amazing food. We will definitely be back.
