Charming boutique hotel with great restaurant
This is a charming, historic, beautifully renovated property in the centre of the old part of Kochi, within walking distance of great shops, the Chinese fishing nets, and other historic buildings. The restaurant, in a central courtyard, was absolutely fantastic. We found the beds quite hard and uncomfortable. And we had some problems in the bathroom -- the hand-held shower unit pulled out completely from the wall, as did the control for the sink faucet. A bit of a surprise, given this is a Relais and Chateaux property. The staff was very apologetic, but didn't offer us anything to make up for the inconvenience. A nice hotel for India, but am unsure whether it's truly worthy of Relais and Chateaux status.
