The first thing to note is that though it is run by the management as the Bungalow on the Beach (BoB) it is not on the same location and that has some problems. It is not on the beach...only about 500m inland You cannot check in here...you have to go to the BoB and get back You cannot park your... More

Found it a lil inconvenient to walk up to Bungalow on the Beach (about 500 mtrs up the road) for all meals (even morning coffee/tea) - only on the last day was I offered the option of having breakfast at The Gate House (probably because by then, there were a couple of other travellers as well). The room I stayed... More

I go regularly to Tharangambadi and I am never disappointed. This time I again went with family and there have been a number of improvements.

Its now called Tharangambadi....but it was a Dutch Colony called Tranquebar. Hardly anyone has heard of this place but if you are in South India, near Pondy or Tangore, do go visit. Its a peaceful haven ,worth spending a day or two, just to unwind, before moving on. We did not get rooms at the main Hotel, called the Bunglow... More

I have to this area many times and I love the area for it's peace and simplicity. The Gate House is a much better choice for me than the Bungalow. It is small; 4 rooms I think. So it's never going to be crowded. It has a small pool that is more than adequate. The rooms are not on the... More

This is a really pleasant hotel in a cozy sleepy village. We only stayed there one night, but would have liked to stay there longer. The hotel is located just inside of the town gate and has a beautiful garden and is tastefully renovated with only 6 rooms. We had a room on the first floor with a veranda from... More

It is a value for money BB. This property does not have a restaurant or even a pantry. It is located a furlong away from the main hotel - Bungalow on the beach so not advisable for travelers with kids or elders. Also during the night it gets shady and walking in the dark street is dicey though no crime... More

We fell in love with the sleepy old town of Tranquebar with its Danish fort, its old buildings, the sea and it seemed like it was literally frozen in time for many centuries now.
