We made a late change to our initial hotel reservation in Cochin and opted for Brunton’s Boatyard – it was a good decision! The setting for the hotel on the edge of the lake and the Arabian Sea was wonderful, we had an amazing room with a view (309), staff were so incredibly helpful and the peace and quiet offered by the hotel was just what we were looking for as part of a relaxing holiday. Manoj Nair, the hotel manager, made our stay particularly memorable. The hotel offers a boat tour around the lake during which the Chinese fishing nets can be seen close up – it also offers nightly Indian cooking lessons which were both informative and fun. My wife is an advocate of “clean eating” and does not like food heavily coated in oil or butter – when this was explained to the staff they made every effort to accommodate this style of cooking. As we stayed for six nights, our only criticism was the lack of change in the lunch and dinner menus. All it would have taken would be to have a “core” menu supplemented by say a daily special or specials – perhaps something that the hotel may like to consider. To provide this change we opted out of one lunch and dinner slot (we were on full board) and ate in nearby restaurants.
