The other reviewers have said it all and it is true. We should have stayed 4 days and only managed 2 in the end-the loss was ours. The room was the cleanest we have stayed in in India-absolutely spotless including thebathroom and well furnished to suit the style of the building. All rooms have an area with chairs to sit...

We stayed at Walton's for 2 nights. It was very nice! The homestay is settled in the middle of Fort-Cochin. Within a few steps you are in the middle of the old centre of Fort-Cochin, which is very nice and authentic. Christopher (the owner of Walton's homestay) gave us a good welcome. He gave us a lot of information about...

Nice and clean, great sized rooms with air con, good sized breakfast. A lounge area which we took over in the late afternoons for pre dinner drinks. Mr Walton is a wealth of information - an interesting man. Incredibly quiet considering its location. Not cheap, but for us the comfort was worth it.

Spacious, elegant, comfortable and spotless rooms in a charming garden courtyard environment with 24/7 hot water from environmentally sustainable solar panels. Feels like a secluded retreat from the city buzz and noise but is centrally located and convenient to the major sites of interest. A wonderful breakfast is included in the room rate and the owner, Christopher Walton, is incredibly...
