We have just stayed for 3 nights. The Manager Ranjit & staff Manoj, Prabakaran & Vetrivel were so welcoming and incredibly friendly the entire time. We were lucky enough to be staying in the Suite which is a beautiful large room with lots of natural light and whirl pool bath. The hotel is incredibly clean and the pool area is...

We had a great stay at the Neemrana hotel. The hotel is very charming and historic. The hotel pool is large and a great retreat after a hot day in Fort Kochi. The location is great as it's close to the ferry stop and a short walk to several shops and restaurants. We left our credit card by accident and...

we stayed here over biennla and wanted a relaxed, chilled out place. This is a small property with just 10-13 rooms; each room is different and has its own character. The property is an old house (apparently the oldest house in India) built in 15 century and renovated beautifully keeping the old character and giving it the new comforts. The...

The location is great, the building is beautiful and the food is good but the whole place desperately needs a bit of modernising. The air conditioning was poor in our bedroom and doesn't work at all in the communal areas like the restaurant. And the swimming pool is just a mosquito breeding ground...they hadn't treated it properly so no guests...

Old, for sure. Decrepit, well yeah it is sort of falling apart. But still has a charming colonial ambiance that I appreciated. High ceilings, thick walls and large open common areas all lend it the feel of the British Colonial era. Amenities were lacking, pool was murky and breakfast was horrible but it wasn't expensive. Eating there was definitely a...

This was a very old hotel. No doubt the owners were trying to get the feel of an old Portuguese home. Our room was outside the front door. It was a small room and we needed an extra bed. It was a tight squeeze. There was only one key to the room and I must admit as an older woman...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Tower House sits facing the Chinese fishing nets, marking the spot of a 17th century light house and hence the name. Cannon balls once fired out from its thick bastion-walls. The scallop-walled twin-house looks rather like a ship. And indeed, boats were brought in on high tide and parked downstairs in its stable and dry dock! Since 1982, it is owned by Peirce Leslie. The character of The Tower House lies in its unpretentious yet proud bearing, almost grandfather like, it sits looking out over the sea, a spirit of adventure surrounds it even today, taking one back to stories of high seas told and retold over centuries. Stately colonial pillars hold up its vast high-ceilinged halls. The generous arched doors welcoming one to step in to another world where time stretches, pauses to watch the sun set and then moves ever so lightly towards dawn. Yes it’s the magic of spaces that have seen more history than we will ever see, spaces that we know will still be there to delight those who come long after us.The furniture is an eclectic mix with no attempt to recreate rooms of any one era or type because the structure was added on to. It’s the light pouring in through the windows, skylights and the vastness of the indoor spaces that make for an unforgettable experience. Most of the rooms have large four poster beds, and bathrooms that happily accommodate, large tubs and windows that have views of the trees or the sea depending on where they are located. It’s been restored to be compatible with present day needs while maintaining its structural integrity. It reflects different periods rather than artificially being faithful to any single one. It takes you back in time, moods and memories woven together create a fabric that is strong but sits ever so lightly.The above uncompromising principles of practical use of material and form dictated The Tower House renovation too and it is adherence to these very values of being honest to the time we live in while respecting the past that has set new standards in heritage tourism.Discover the old world charm where, sailors, travellers, traders, planters feasted and danced under chandeliers, suspended from high wooden ceilings. ... more   less
