A superb place to stay in Fort Cochin: clean, spacious, affordable and central. But the biggest assett of all is MR Walton himself. Not only did he have us picked up from Kochi airport (about an hour away), he laso helped us arrange onward travel, our backwaters tour and more. Very highly recommended.

Fort Kochin was our first stop in our tour to Kerala, and we are glad that we chose to stay at Walton's Homestay. We requested our booking through e-mail and were pleasantly surprised to get a confirmed booking and a late evening pick-up from the airport without a deposit - a rarity in India.Arriving at the homestay, we were immediately...

I had contemplated splashing out on one of the very charming but more expensive properties but am glad we settled for Walton's. The rooms are comfortable and the place is very quiet, despite a central location. Each room (or perhaps only the 'deluxe' ones) has a little sit-out area facing the garden. Mr Walton is organised and helpful. Breakfast was... More

At Walton's, it is all about the finer details that makes your stay a little more magical in a beautiful town like Kochi. We travelled as a couple, and reached the inn in the evening. What drew me in was the warm glow of the library and the strains of western classical music wafting through the evening air. The rooms... More
