As you sit on your balcony or verandah looking out over the bustling harbour you can easily imagine yourself in one of Conrad's tales of tropical seas. The rooms are spacious, all with harbour views, furnished in colonial style, complete with ceiling fans as well as air conditioning. Shipping in the harbour ranges from huge container ships and cruise liners to the local ferry and small fishing canoes. Inevitably this (as well as the calls to prayer from the local mosque) makes for a certain amount of noise. We did not find it excessive in the circumstances, but if absolute peace and quiet is what you want, Brunton may not be for you.
The location is very convenient for all the points of interest in Cochin, with the Chinese fishing nets just a couple of minutes walk away.
The food in the three restaurants is very good and reasonably priced. The 'History' retaurant has live Indian classical music in the evenings. Service generally fine but understanding some of the waiters' english can be a bit of a struggle.
Free Wifi is available in the lobby area.
