calm, relaxing”

Quiet, close to ocean, close to tourist center but far enough away

We stayed at Old Bristow Lighthouse for 4 days . The room was large and comfortable with nice amenities (desk, mini fridge, kettle).But the plugs were in odd locations so not so convenient to use the desk. The windows in the room faced the front (they are called "garden view" but there isn't much of a garden). Still it was nice and would have been better if the windows had mosquito netting on it. As it was we could not keep the windows open or really appreciate the lovely ocean breeze as there were no windows on the ocean side. The bathroom is large also with lots of amenities (toiletries including toothbrush and paste). But several things were missing (the belt to the bathroom) or broken (the soap dispenser pump), and so one had to ask for them from the hotel staff. The latter were happy to oblige but my spouse says the hotel is a kind of "you have to ask for it" kind of place. The sofas and tables in the area overlooking the ocean were a lovely place to sit. Overall we were very happy with our stay and would stay there again if we returned to Fort Kochi. The hotel needs a little more TLC and perhaps some better management of space so that one does not have to see the house keeping areas at all times. But then I think the hotel rates would go up.

Delightful hotel in seafront location”

We could not have been more pleased with the Old LightHouse Hotel, Cochin. Dolphins play in the sea while you have breakfast on the dining terrace and the refreshing swimming pool is a real treat in the centre of the Fort Cochin area. The staff could not have been more charming and helpful in this small boutique hotel occupying the historic home of Sir Robert Bristow, Victorian engineer of Cochin. The food is delicious, and wine and beer is available. They even prepared a surprise birthday cake and present for my husband having seen it was his birthday in his passport!

I enjoyed my stay at Old Lighthouse Bristow Hotel. It's located just 10 mins walk from the town centre which I liked. All facilities are available and the staff couldn't have been more helpful - from giving me early check in (at 8am), giving me additional helpings at breakfast and a complimentary drop to my next location - I'd definately recommend this hotel and would choose to stay again.

Wow”

We stayed for 13 nights in this charming little hotel. It was Sir Robert Bristow’s house right on the seafront and by far the best situated in Fort Kochi. The feel of the place is colonial, the staff fantastic, the food phenomenal. Nothing is too much trouble and the chef Rehman, will adjust the dishes and spices to your palate if necessary. He can often be seen checking that the food is to your liking.The dining area faces the sea at the harbour entrance and dolphins leap before you in the sea whilst you take breakfast. Raghavan and his team look after you well in the restaurant. The beds are enormous four posters with firm mattresses the ensuite bathrooms very roomy with amazing soap.The hotel has 2 drivers who will take you on trips if you so desire.This is not a modern concrete tower hotel, this one oozes history, relaxation and charm.We had a brilliant time. Many thanks to you all😁 A difficult holiday to beat!

Stay at Old Lighthouse Bristow Hotel December 2015”

Location, views, service

The hotel looks out across the sea with views of passing dolphins, cruise ships and container ships. Very, but not over attentive , staff. We stayed in a room beside the pool, but without a sea view, which was an upgrade however there are ground floor rooms that have outside sitting areas facing onto the beach. I think our room may have been bigger to easiily accommodate the three of us but you may prefer these sea facing rooms in the main building. We had a lovely supper and good breakfast with a aid,e range of choices. The restaurant staff were the best of any we had in our stay being knowledgeable and confident in dealing with us. There was not the numerous staff that you get in a lot of hotels which makes the service less personal and more stilted. Kochi is a fascinating city and this hotel is a great base for expolring it. Also note that there are buses that leave from the nearby bus station and take you directly to the airport 1 1/2 hours away.

We had lovely food served in a delightfully al fresco manner on the veranda and under the stars.

After 3 weeks business in Nth India, the OLBH @ Fort Kochi was a welcome haven from the hussle of the major towns. It is perfectly located on the waterfront and adjacent to the only swimming beach in Kochi - nice to see the locals enjoying their time off work with families, but still quiet for us. We will visit again and it will be bliss if they can ensure the hotwater is avail 24/7.

We spent 3 nights at this hotel and it can’t be beaten on location or value for money. Located right on the beach it’s the perfect place to relax with a beer and watch the sun set each night. The food is nothing short of spectacular, so much so that we didn’t eat a meal outside of the hotel. The rooms were clean and very private and nothing was too much trouble for the attentive staff. Overall I wouldn’t hesitate to stay at or recommend this hotel to anyone who’s visiting Kochi.

While this is not a 5 star hotel, it is very clean and the staff is very helpful and friendly. Over looking the Arabian Sea is has some of the most amazing views in Kochi. You are also within walking distance of most of the tourist sights. The breakfast was wonderful, but the one lunch we had was just average and very over priced.

i stayed at the old lighthouse bristow hotel with my partner for 3 days in early jan, 2012. we lucked into the best room in the hotel (so we were told, and i believe it), room 4. it was large, with great ac, a pool view, and a good-sized balcony that had a view of the neighboring (small, busy and polluted) beach. the ensuite was large, and overall the room was a great escape from busy fort kochi. unfortunately, the service at the hotel (porters, desk staff, restaurant servers, spa staff) was consistently slow to the point of incompetence as if they were totally untrained.

Lovely hotel, friendly service”

The location is second to none and the staff are very friendly

This is definitely a good place to stay in Fort Kochi. It's perfectly positioned to see the Chinese fishing nets in action and to explore Fort Kochi by foot.

Beautiful hotel with patchy service”

Sunset view, dinner food.

“Everything I expected” 15 Jan 2011 Ozziepore The Od Lighthouse Bristow hotel is a lovely choice of hotel unless you need the internet. The location is wonderful, such a gorgeous view of the ocean, and you can hear the waves at night. The staff are very friendly and attempt to be helpful however it can be difficult to understand what is being said in some cases and a course on ‘listening’ is needed by one person in particular. The exception to this rule is the restaurant staff and the person with the best English in the whole place seems to be one of the waiters who is also a barista – search for him if you need to explain anything. Unlike a previous reviewer, I loved the pool and used it every day. Yes there were leaves in it, but I think you would expect that being as it is under huge trees that were dropping their leaves all day. There were only four deck chairs though which is a problem being as the hotel allows outsiders in for 500rps including lunch, thus it is easy for actual guests to be denied a pool lounge. This situation needs to be rectified. We enjoyed the food greatly. Not much more to be said about that, except that as you would expect the Indian food is far better than the ‘western’ food.

Feel like a real colonial”

Small, big rooms and excellent service

We trully enjoyed staying at the Old Lighthouse. It's very conveniently located with a great view over the beach and Arabian Sea. What else would someone wish for while indulging the tastefull breakfast. The staff did everything to make us feel at home. The building, setting and big rooms makes you feel going back in time.....

Perfect Gem ”

Lovely, quiet, charming hotel

Beautiful setting to see the sea and enjoy the beauty of Kochi. They do needs some work on a handful of things namely, the pool and general staff training but overall it was a warm and inviting place to enjoy. I'll be back!
