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.

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...
