On arrival we were disappointed to be shown to a dark and damp-smelling room. We thought that a dip in the pool might refresh us... we were harassed by pigeons and had to tiptoe between the pigeon poo that surrounded the pool side. The room had the previous occupiers toothpaste smudges remained on the sink side. The shower was cold....

We chose to stay here. Asked on the reviews we had read on Trip Advisor. The building itself was historically quirky but we thought we had been shown to the elephants stable instead of the room we were to sleep in. It was dark, smelled mouldy and damp, and the walls, light switches and kettle were dirty - showing a...

Beautiful property, great Location. And wonderful staff who were polite, helpful and made you feel at home. The pool is also lovely- perfect for a refreshing dip in the evening after a day out. If there is one thing that could be improved is breakfast- which was not bad at all , but not great either.

The Neemrana property is a wonderful 300-year-old heritage non-hotel hotel. The location is perfect with respect to the Kochi Biennale and the famous Chinese fishing nets. Manager Ranjit and his team did a great job with hosting our group and attended to each of our needs with the warmest smile. :) The stay could not have been better.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Tower House sits facing the Chinese fishing nets, marking the spot of a 17th century light house which has given it the name. Cannon balls once fired out from its thick bastion-walls. This scallop-walled twin-house looks rather like a ship and indeed, boats were brought in on high tide and parked downstairs in its stable and dry dock! Since 1982, it is owned by Peirce Leslie. The character of The Tower House lies in its unpretentious yet proud bearing, almost grandfather like, it sits looking out over the sea, a spirit of adventure surrounds it even today, taking one back to stories of high seas told and retold over centuries. Stately colonial pillars hold up its vast, high-ceilinged halls. The generous arched doors welcoming one to step in to another world where time stretches, pauses to watch the sun set, and then moves ever so lightly towards dawn. Yes it’s the magic of spaces that have seen more history than we will ever see, spaces that we know will still be there to delight those who come long after us. The furniture is an eclectic mix with no attempt to recreate rooms of any one era or type because the residential structure was added on to. It’s the light pouring in through the windows, skylights and the vastness of the indoor spaces that make for an unforgettable experience. Most of the rooms have large four poster beds, and bathrooms that happily accommodate large tubs. The windows have views of the trees or the sea depending on where they are located. Restored to be compatible with present-day needs while maintaining its structural integrity, it reflects different periods rather than artificially being faithful to any single one. It takes you back in time, as moods and memories woven together create a fabric that is strong but sits ever so lightly. The above uncompromising principles of practical use of material and form dictated The Tower House renovation too and its adherence to these very values of being honest to the time we live in while respecting the past that has set new standards in heritage tourism. Discover the old world charm where, sailors, travellers, traders, planters feasted and danced under chandeliers, suspended from high wooden ceilings. ... more   less
