Fort House Hotel overview

The hotel is an attractive building by the waterfront in Fort Cochin. Your hosts are on hand to ensure you have an enjoyable stay with them.

There are 16 spacious rooms in the newer wing and 3 in the old building. Rooms are arranged around a pretty courtyard garden and have shared verandas with views of the courtyard and backwaters, excellent places to unwind away from the hustle and bustle of the town and listen to birdsong from the gardens below. Rooms are air conditioned and have en-suite shower rooms.

The restaurant specialises in seafood, gently flavoured with spices. Vegetarian dishes can be arranged, as can European fare for those wanting a taste of home. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal and you can listen to the lapping of the water against the pier as you dine. Meals can also be arranged on the terrace overlooking he harbour, perfect for a romantic candlelit dinner.

The hotel has an Ayurveda treatment centre, so you can enjoy authentic and restorative spa therapies during your stay. Nearby attractions include the Dutch Palace, the Old Jewish Synagogue and the popular antique market of Mattancherry, all within walking distance of the hotel.
