Rooms not worth the money. We stayed for a day as we had no choice. Typical government guest house kinda look. No proper maintenance. Though the location is really good and scenic, the resort is a dark patch. Charges for rooms and food are exorbitant when compared to the facilities and overall feel of the hotel.

Bolgatty Palace Hotel is actually an old palace, it is a must see place as it is Dutch style palace. The rooms are well maintained and are very nostalgic. The back side of the hotel gives a panoramic view of the backwaters of Kochi. The hotel have a houseboat which gives a wonderful sightseeing tour in the evening. The hotel is managed by Kerala government. Best for families.

It's a really beautiful property and has a great view of Marine Drive but sadly the service is just basic like a single star hotel. Receptionists didn't even bother to ask why we were checking out before time or take a review about the stay. Housekeeping staff did do their job well. Our experience at restaurant was pathetic. The servers were incompetent and the breakfast buffet was limited in option. We found foreign guest struggling to find something that suits their taste buds and not a single host bothered to explain what kind of dish is being served.

The total experience was kind of ok, the property is really beautiful and if staff could show bit more interest in helping the guests, our trip could have been perfect.

This property is owned by KTDC. High standard accommodation in Dutch Palace, built in 1744, is available. Rooms of various other affordable standards viz, Marine view, Lake view, Golf view are also available in a separate building. Rooms are comfortable with scenic beauty. We stayed in a lake view room. We had a nice and joyful stay. Standard of food was excellent but bit costly. We spent quality time in the early morning moving around the Resort compound surrounding by the Vembanad Lake. Being located in an island you have to depend on transport. Highly recommended resort in Kochi.

Very disappointed with my last stay at this property. AC was not working and rooms were poorly maintained. Very sad to note the sorry state of affairs of such a beautiful property. I think the government should let out property on lease to private players.

Bolgatty Palace Hotel is Island resort with sea all around, and harbour nearby. Excellent food, rooms well maintained and cheerful reception. Clean swimming pool and excellent view of majestic buildings around, lush green grass lawn very good atmosphere, not very far from railway station, mode of transportation to reach the resort is also good. Overall this state of Kerala deserved to be called god's own country.

Please do not expect any palatial looks in this hotel. I saw couple of cockroaches moving around freely in the corridor. Also, the hotel does not have any wifi. I cannot understand how in the current world, a decent hotel can exist without providing wifi facilities to their guests. Also, irrespective of the number of guests, they did not provide enough towels.

It was the best resort in kochi with good location surrounding sea water. It has good ambience and rooms are also comfortable. Food, service everything was good. When you visit Kochi I suggest you to prefer this island resort.
