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... More

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... More

Nice , cozy , beautiful house....makes you travel in time. The vintage furnitures, the high cots with posts, the cane chairs , copper and brass vessels , old photographs, the room that opens in a small indoor pool....just adds to a perfect holiday. Though there is nothing much to see around, the broad lanes and the old Dutch houses ,... More

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. There is no room service, so you've to walk to the BoB property for everything. That said, I found the Gate house to be a serene little property with no noise... More

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
