                Wonderful hotel”

                This heritage hotel is wonderful. It is right on the beach with lovely sea views. The staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. We used the pool a number of times. It was clean with lots of sun beds, surrounded by lovely gardens. The room was fantastic with everything you could want. We had gowns for use around the hotel plus dressing gowns for the room. We had a bedroom plus another room overlooking the sea which was furnished with colonel furniture. The breakfast was good, we had eggs, toast and fresh fruit. Our stay was wonderful and I would recommend it.

                First of all the staff are fantastic. From the driver that picked me up at the hotel to the checkin to the staff at breakfast, they all made me feel very welcome. The room is nice and the A/C works well. It's very quiet but in a location that is easily walkable. Less than 10 minutes from the Chinese fishing nets and steps away from the beach. The pool looked very nice but I did not try it so I cannot comment. I stayed 2 night and I really wish I had stayed longer. I highly recommend.

                A great find!”

                This last minute booking was great! The room was spacious, clean, with a separate dressing area and it had a well stocked mini-bar and tea/ coffee making facilities! The a/c was efficient and quiet and the bathroom had a walk- in shower and plenty of toiletries, towels, slippers and robes. The shared balcony on the first floor looked over towards the sea and we spent an undisturbed pleasant afternoon painting the view! The grounds are well cared for but the pool appeared to need some maintenance as the water looked green. We were the only people in the restaurant so it lacked atmosphere but the food was ok. The staff were very efficient and helpful with our early morning departure, arranging the taxi to the airport and providing a packed breakfast! We would stay again!

Nancy and her staff made our stay very comfortable and we were incredibly impressed by the speed with which the few room issues we had were dealt with. The food is excellent, and Peter, the Chef goes out if his way to cook whatever you want. The are several other good restaurants within an easy walk. The pool is lovely and can added bonus!

                A heritage home which has seen better days. Comfortable bed and mattress. There is a reverse-osmosis plant in the hotel for unlimited, safe drinking water. Our room was clean and spacious though it was dark since it had no windows. Food was well prepared and I also enjoyed the swimming pool. The the sea front promenade is right behind the hotel and is easily accessible. Chinese fishing nets and Vasco da Gama's burial site are close by and the Naval Museum is also walking distance. Amazing views of sunset on the Arabian sea from the balcony. Nancy is a caring host and arranged our travel needs. Very polite and attentive staff. Torrential shower which I enjoyed very much ! For bird lovers, you will see a variety of birds in the trees when you sit on the verandah at breakfast time or at sunset. Overall, I enjoyed my stay in this hotel.

I don't usually care or comment about the food at hotels but the included breakfast was restaurant quality. I recommend getting one of the two rooms with ocean views.

                The Poovath Heritage is a good value hotel. We had a delux sea view room with a small sitting area overlooking the sea. The bathroom was modern. The furniture in the bedroom was dark and heavy but in keeping with the style of the hotel. There was a small fridge and a kettle to make tea and coffee. The Hotel provides free filtered water. The staff are friendly and helpul. Nancy the manager is excellent. This is India and there were occasional power and water cuts which lasted only very briefly. The hotel is opposite the sea so you need an high factor insect repellant. We had a mosquito net over the bed. The hotel provides a small electric insect repellant machine. You should bring an electric one that uses repellant tablets to help. Apply insect repellant to your exposed areas everytime you go out. The hotel has a small pool but birds also use the pool for drinking and can dive bomb you. The hotel is only a short distance from a range of restaurants.

                Good location, close to the beach and walkable distance to most places of interest and restaurants. Breakfast was good with a simple yet adequate menu. Restaurant staff is attentive, helpful and friendly. There is a small swimming pool that was clean. That’s where the pros ended. We had a room on the ground floor which had many mosquitos and a couple of cockroaches despite not opening up any windows. Bathroom was dirty with stains in the toilet and around bathroom sink. We had gone out immediately after checking in and only came back late at night where we discovered the duvet and sheets had brown, foul smelling stains on them. When we called the front desk, they gave us sheets to change by ourselves but eventually changed it after we insisted they do it. The manager did not follow up with the issues we had with the room and seems to be friendly with only foreign tourists. Our overall stay was satisfactory but would not revisit or recommend.

                Our original resort was taken out because of a cyclone so this was our only option on Friday 25 Oct 2019 at 9pm. They overcharged us for what it was worth but to be fair we were grateful for a roof over our heads. We paid twice what you would expect though they did refund us 500 INR in the morning as they could see we were not impressed. But once that was done I booked us a place in North Goa - the epic Anjuna beach and was not disappointed. Thanks anyway to these guys cos they got us out of a bind. Just focus a bit more on service guys and people will come back.

                Beautiful Heritage Hotel in quiet location ”

                Atmosphere of hotel is relaxing

                we stayed at the poovath heritage home hotel for two nights. the hotel is a former dutch colonial mansion, converted into a hotel which is immaculately decorated and has a great atmosphere. the landscaped grounds and pool area are well maintained. our air-conditioned room was decorated simply but it was luxurious with a very nice bathroom that included a modern shower and claw foot bath. the room service menu was decent and service was quick. although not in the central part of fort cochin, the location of the hotel is approximately a pleasant 10 minute walk to the main shopping and restaurant area in town and to the chinese fishing nets. breakfast each morning in the upstairs restaurant was good and it was a very peaceful environment. the reception desk staff were helpful in arranging transport on our behalf for the next stage of our trip. the only negative was that the bathtub leaked quite severely but there were plenty of towels to mop up with.

                Good location, good amenities, clean rooms, good service.

                the poovath, as it is known locally, is ideally located in a residential area on the coast in fort kochin. beach views from the dining room. within walking distance to the chinese fishing nets and other sights on the northeast tip of the fort kochin area. service was attentive, not necessarily friendly but very attentive. food was good, rooms were spotless and beautifully furnished with antique-style furniture. overall a lovely hotel that evokes a colonial feel in beautiful surroundings.

                very nice hotel, well positioned in fort kochi”

                good service, clean and comfortable

                we stayed in this hotel in august 2011. cold reception but the hotel is quite comfortable and clean. at 10 minutes by walk from fort kochi, it is located in a quiet street overlooking the sea pool clean and well maintained. the only negative point for a hotel with this rate : no hot water in the bathroom for half of our stay. management upgraded us the last two nights to apologize.

                lovely historic hotel right on the ocean”

                friendly staff, spacious rooms, unique style, and great location in the heart of fort cochin

                i recently stayed at the poovath heritage hotel during a brief stop in kerala. the hotel is located right in the heart of fort cochin - in walking distance from all the main sights and boutiques. it is also on the beach, with some peaceful views of the water. the rooms were spacious and the bathrooms were stocked with all kinds of organic amenities. although the kitchen has a limited menu, a few of the traditional kerala dishes were fantastic. i would highly recommend this hotel.
