We stayed at this hotel for the first days of our trip in Kerala and were delighted. The charm of the ancient house with the modern facilities. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. The pool the absolute MUST!!! We highly recommend this hotel if you would like to spoil yourself for a few days.

The hotel is very nice, the location is just perfect and the guys in the hotel are the nicest persons in town, the service is great.

I spent a weekend at Old Harbour during the monsoon and it was the absolutely perfect retreat from the madness in Bangalore. The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating - even brought a TV in our room when we wanted to catch the finals of Wimbledon! The house is gorgeous and has a perpetual smell of lemongrass. The rooms are...

We didn't have much expectation before we visited the place but the hotel exceeded expectations in all aspects - accomodation, food, staff, cleanliness, ambience everything was perfect. Since it was off season we got the accomodation at a lesser tariff, so it didn't turn out to be so expensive either. All in all, a wonderful place to stay. Cheers to...

Wonderful, peaceful hotel - very elegant. We had a lovely big room opening to the garden. We thought the food was lovely and the guys that run it so friendly. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Very clean and location could not be better to stroll on the waterfront and see the famous nets bringing in their catch.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At the heart of ancient Fort Cochin, Kerala, a place that exudes history and culture, is the 'Old Harbour Hotel.' A 300 year-old building that has for long been a heritage monument of this town, now reopened as a boutique hotel. Built in the Dutch style of architecture with hints of Portuguese influences, it was the first hotel of old Cochin. Later it remained a residential home to employees of English Tea broking firms until it was left unused for a period of time. ... more   less
