We enjoyed our two nights at the Brunton Boatyard, in a huge suite that looked out over the water -- where we could watch boats passing by.

We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful, but perhaps not as knowledgeable as employees in other hotels we stayed in while in India. In particular, the level of fluency in English was not as high as in Bangalore, Chennai or the Golden Triangle. This was not a problem, but it probably led to some confusion in answers to our questions about tours, houseboats, etc.

Word to the wise: if you don't like or understand one answer from personnel at the front desk, go back later and ask someone else. There appear to be differing levels of familiarity with area restaurants, tours, etc.

We greatly enjoyed both the upstairs restaurant (The History) as well as the all-day dining on the main floor. A particular treat was a cooking demonstration by the head chef at The History.

We also did Ayurvedic massages. This was a cultural experience: hilarious in my opinion, and nothing like the typical relaxing massage you might find in the US or elsewhere.

A nice place to stay while visiting Fort Kochi. More historic and interesting than the newer hotels near the airport. But it probably helps to have a sense of humor!

This is a truly 5* hotel with amazing customer service and sincere professionalism. Manoj and team responded promptly to a last minute request for a surprise arrangement and went above and beyond to offer the most personable, truly unbelievable customer service. The view from the hotel is amazing and the food is first class. We will be recommending Brunton Boatyard to anyone that wants to stay at Fort Cochin. Thank you so much!

We stayed at the Brunton Boat Yard for two nights at the end of our trip.

The hotel is fully re built in the style of the old colonial boat yard buildings that once adorned this property. Its been very well done, you would be forgiven for thinking it was a restored 200 year old building but in fact its only 20 years old. It is well located near the chinese fishing nets and close to many attractions.

The greeting at the hotel was very nice with a flower garland, cold towel and a drink. We were told some of the history of the property and the facilities as we completed check in. By the time we got to the room our bags were already there.

All rooms overlook the harbour. This can be noisy with the passing boats in the morning but it didnt interupt our rest.

The pool area is beautiful and also over looks the harbour.

The rooms also are well appointed and done in the old colonial style in keeping with the rest of the hotel.

We attended two cooking classes as well that were very informative.

We ate both the restaurants. Breakfast and lunch was in the Armoury restaurant. Breakfast was breakfast, nothing special being done here but was of a standard befitting the hotel. Lunch however was superb. We had the curries and both days they were outstanding. Over two days between the three of us we had butter chicken, Kerala Fish Curry, a chicken and spinach curry, Kerala Seafood Platter and the Pepper Chicken curry. All were to die for. Superb, superb, superb!

Dinner was in the History restaurant and was also very good. The mutton shank curry was great, with a kick of spice in it but the duck was the winner here. Beautiful curry. The high light was the Mango Semi freddo with a wonderful sweetened sweet chilli sauce. Yes sounds odd ... but it was a killer dessert, brilliantly executed and a perfect end to a curry meal. I could eat that everyday.

Finally the staff. They are very good. Helpful, polite and always friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. They really make your stay easy and relaxed. All were excellent but special mention to Prince and Rohith. The girls in the restaurant too but I didnt get there names sadly, they were fantastic too.

I switched from Taj to this hotel due to location and recommendation by my agent. This is a splendid colonial hotel with great views from the rooms. The signature dishes in the main restaurant are not to be missed. The location is just one hundred meters from the Chinese fishing nets. Not many rooms so book well in advance. Free internet as well. Passing ship traffic might be noisy although it did not bother me. Large high colonial style beds. Must try the famous mutton shank curry. They only cook a limited number every evening. Mush of the fort is within walking distance or just use an auto rickshaw.
