Do not stay in this dirty and spooky "Hotel". No Hot water,no wifi,no reception and no electricity! We have mentioned the fact that there is no electricity several times to the reception at the Bungalow on the Beach and as arrogant as they are they just treat you like somebody minor since you are not staying in the expensive Part...

Ask for the room in front of the temple. The rooms are very big, the furniture is typically colonial and the bathrooms are ok. You can have your meals at the other hotel in front that will make your stay worthwhile due to its location and cuisine.

The big hotel opposite offer these budget rooms in a rather characterless building. They are clean, have a/c and hot water but not very well maintained or particularly nice to spend time in. However, you can hang out at the beautiful hotel opposite for your meals. Try to get room 5 if possible. Its got a view of the sea... More

This is a value for money option in Tharangambadi and is maintained well by Neemrana. The rooms are spacious, clean, with a double bed and a big bathroom, which was clean as well. They give a towel with soap and shampoo and that's that. Everything worked, AC, heater, flush and there was water always. So it was nice to come... More

(incl. access to swimming pool) - and another hotel on the other side of the road with rooms for 990 Rs. excl. breakfast and with no access to the swimming pool. There is no reception at the 'cheap' part of the hotel.... More

I think I was the only person staying there. I got Room #4 upstairs. It was a nice, basic but clean, large room. Everything worked - the air conditioning, the water heater, the flush and the fans. They give you a towel with soap and shampoo. There is no restaurant. But there is a restaurant in the hotel opposite. Overall,... More

Inside wardrobe and drawers very dusty. Linen clean. Maid changed towel, toilet roll and bottle of water every day. No longer any food... More

We booked a stay here through Neemrana hotels sales office in Delhi at only 600/- per AC room. We were not expecting a great room, but as we only had a single night in Tranquebar, and the other options were pricey. And after viewing an indifferent review of Bungalow on the Beach, we decided to go for this one. As... More
