    Good stay

    This hotel was good—looks nice and rooms are nice. The staff is very helpful and very accommodating—even with our middle-of-the-night checkout/departure. The food menu is somewhat limited but that's not surprising given that it's a small place. Our bathroom had a bad sewage-type odor when we arrived but it seemed to have been fixed after housekeeping. I'd stay again.

    Clean and comfortable stay in Fort Cochin

    The room was very clean and spacious with a nice separate sitting area. The hotel is located quite close to the waterfront, and not too far from several shops and restaurants. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed my stay here and would return again.

    Great service

    After two weeks of travelling through Tamil Nadu and Kerala, we ended our trip at Amritara, and were so happy we did. Very spacious rooms, comfortable beds and large bathrooms gave us the comfort we needed to wind down and prepare for long journeys home. The area is quiet and within easy walking distance to busier parts of the town. Breakfast was ok, but service was slow - fortunately we had leisurely morning for this, but it wouldn't work for those with less time. Service was wonderful from Nancy, who accommodated our late departing flight with a late check-out - being able to shower prior to heading to the airport made all the difference!

    heritage hotel

    We were expecting a more up market looking place but soon any disappointment faded - the location opposite the sea and next to the old dutch cemetery was easy, the breakfast was generous and good, the hotel staff were very kind and helpful. We had a room upgrade and were allowed a late checkout. I grew to really enjoy our room and verandah in this small heritage hotel. I'd check out the group's hotels in other locations. Thanks to the manager and staff.
