I spent my first night in Fort Cochin Harry's place. Harry was away but Sargent and his wife hosted me and were lovely and very helpful.
The room itself was extremely basic and the two beds in the room made it quite small. The room was also painted a strange lurid green which did make it feel quite depressing. Compared to other available accommodation for the same price in Cochin you can much much better. The room is very over priced and should be half the cost. In the morning I was hoping for a sleep in as I had along previous day travelling. I was woken to the sound of Bob Marley as very high decibels by the neighbours which my hosts seemed unable to do anything about.
