We were intrigued by Tranquebar, and the Bungalow on the Beach hotel - but when I tried to book it was apparently full. We settled for a room in the Gate House instead. Tranquebar is a very strange place . . . full of churches, but little else. We had to walk to and fro from the Gatehouse to the...

This is the poorer cousin of the Bungalow on the Beach. The house has been lovingly restored by Neemrana and is a lovely place to stay the night. Keep the below drawbacks in mind though: (a) This place only has rooms and nothing else - you have to go to the Bungalow on the Beach for everything - Check-in/Check-out, meals,...

Spent two nights across New year 2017 at the Gatehouse, where our family had taken 3 rooms. The Pluses: Heritage Property; Well restored; Helpful staff (when there - as there is no service after 8 pm) and of course the Tranquebar location. The minuses: Questionable housekeeping/hygiene standards - with dirty bed linen (also torn in one room) and not so...

If you have a thing for old heritage house, Gate House is for you. You will feel the ambience as you are in a old but very well maintained South Village home. It has a swimming pool, garden, and well maintained rooms. Staff is really courteous. They will help you in anyway possible.

a beautiful old house well restored. Intimately cozy and very relaxing. some of the facilities needed upgrading but by and large a very nice place. the service is not of the highest quality but they are using villagers and that is to be recommended. Maybe a bit more training woud help.

I don’t remember how or where I came across Tranquebar, but it is a place worth the visit. The Gate House wasn’t obviously my first choice but by the time I booked, which was nearly two months in advance, the Bungalow on the Beach was already full. While staying at the Bungalow on the Beach was something that we missed...

I am willing to pay for heritage, even suffer some inconvenience. But I refuse to accept bad hygiene. We stayed in a room with unclean and torn bed linen and less than clean bathrooms. The Gatehouse has no service after 8.00 PM. Only a nice gentleman as watchman. Unfortunately, he only understands Tamil. We were at our wits end trying...

Gate house is part of the Bungalow on the beach property, only that it is not on the beach. It is a little further (500m) in the same street.
