After two days of flying ,NYC-London Mumbai-Chennai-Cochin,we must have looked so tired that we were upgraded to a suite . All the rooms face the Arabian sea with great views . The staff is exceptionally helpful. The hotel is centrally located in the old town with easy access to all the sights. The food is good and their seafood restaurant is exceptionally fresh since it comes right off the boats that afternoon.this is defiantly the lace to stay in Kochi(Cochin),

Kochi may well be the gentlest, kindest and least confronting point to enter India. Residing at the Brunton Boatyard - the waterfront location, accommodation and service at this splendid hotel was one of the many highlights of our trip to Kerala. We had been appointed Room 202 - a wonderful corner suite at the ferry terminal end of the building.
On arrival to the hotel after an arduous 1 1/2 hour drive from the airport we were greeted by name with an unforgettable cardamon infused lemonade. The waiter at dinner mixed me a vodka and fresh coconut milk cocktail. He may need some gentle tutoring but he was immensely pleased with himself and the idea was excellent.
We had a private table set up by the water because the terrace was booked out and we were so disappointed. Celebrating the beginning of our holiday we had grilled lobster as a starter and a prawn curry washed down with king fisher beer for the handsome sum of sixty bucks.
On that first day, like most others since, I was up before dawn. In a high state of excitement I threw open all the doors and windows onto the terrace to let the beauty of Cohin in. The boy who bought the coffee to our room was horrified - I dont think he had ever seen them open before. Bug factor is a little severe they had told us, not that we ever noticed. Nothing the hotel protection and use of our personal repellant could not handle.
Watching a town come to life in India is fascinating from such a vantage point. A spit from the water, the traffic of ferries and boats and rowers and ships and tankers provided constant entertainment. The peace of a cool morning temperature and most beautiful dawn light contrasting with the clatter and horns of the ferries was an unforgettable experience.
Breakfast is a calm and enjoyable affair on the waterfront. Burying ourselves in newspapers we were able to be enlightened on the business of feeding India. 'Dip in Tomato Prices lands Farmers in the Soup' read one wonderful headline. While the price and demand for chickens soared over the Christmas period apparently, a severe drop in tomatoes, pepper and cardamon prices was fuel for much chatter in the daily publications.
A Keralan breakfast is not to be missed. Ajeeth Janardhanan - delightful executive chef, is a passionate advocate of the melting pot of cuisines of Cochin. Hindus, Muslims, Christians and Jews, of Dutch, Portuguese and Armenian heritage have all contributed to the flavors of Kerala. Accordingly a community dish features each day as the Keralan breakfast. Likewise, the History Restaurant also showcases these cuisines though we failed to try this for ourselves.

I really dont want to waste any more time on Brunton than I already have so Ill keep this short. We went on New Years day for a special lunch as a large group. We waited over and hour for our food, which came out in batches, was extremely overpriced, not very tasty or filling and to top it all off they entirely forgot one persons order! The wait staff then made up a poor excuse as to why the food didnt make it, a lie basically.

For a place like this I dont think it can or should let that kind of service go by. I wholly recommend not going here.

The Brunton Boatyard was my husband's and my favorite hotel stay during our three-week tour of North and South India. The service is incredible; the staff is unbelievable attentive and goes above and beyond to make sure you're happy, comfortable and enjoying your stay. Our favorite staff person was Jessy, a beautiful, sweet woman who always greeted us with a smile. The facilities are gorgeous, the rooms and beds are incredibly comfortable, and the town of Fort Kochi is right outside the hotel entrance. We loved the hotel's location because we could walk around Kochi and along the waterfront without needing to get in the car. Next time we're in Kerala we'll make sure to spend longer than 48 hours in Fort Kochi and at Brunton Boatyard.

Room Tip: I think they're all good. All rooms look out onto the harbor!

went for dinner on 18th december 2011. we were disheartened to see very few vegetarian options. but chef ajay made special burnt tomato basil soup. and suggested few options. kara mota among them was the best. bhindi sabzi with an accompaniment was also very good. it was an excellent meal.
