         Hotel Fort House is a charming medium priced, family-run hotel. It is located by the waterfront in Fort Cochin, a town of cultural and historical importance, about 20 kilometers from the city of Ernakulam in Kerala. Well-situated within walking distance from heritage monuments such as the Old Jewish Synagogue the Dutch Palace, and the popular antique market of Mattancherry, Hotel Fort House is an attractive destination for travellers looking for a comfortable and refreshing time away from the bustle of city life.

      Our hotel has 16 spacious, airy rooms in the new block and three rooms in the old block. The rooms are built around a lush tropical garden which open out into a long ‘thinna’ or verandah that provides a view of greenery and the back waters. Constructed in the characteristic Kerala architecture, the rooms have modern conveniences and are air- conditioned.

           We began as a small, five-room family-run hotel and restaurant in 1997. Since then, the hotel has been expanded and upgraded while maintaining an atmosphere of homeliness, comfort and informality. The family continues to manage and administer the hotel, ensuring personal care and concern for all guests.


        Our waterfront restaurant offers a pleasant ambience generated by the fresh sea breeze and the gentle sounds of water lapping against the pier. We serve seafood specialty dishes that are the hallmark of the Kerala Latin Christian cuisine. Our dishes bear the flavour and diversity of home cooked food and avoid over use of spices. Vegans are offered a selection of deliciously flavoured traditional vegetarian fare. For the homesick traveller we have a variety of pastas and other European dishes.
