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,...More
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:

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...More
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...More

This is not my hotel but when you look up TripAdvisor there is invariably a hotel booking engine associated that displays the price and a link to that engine. In this case there may be a problem with that. The Gate House is owned by a group called Neemrana Hotels. So Google this and go to their website and they have a centralised booking service. This is a reliable service and Neemrana are very professional. They will communicate to you by email and advise how payment can be made. The property will nit be busy in March. The easiest access is by taxi. The property is about 5 hours from Chennai Airport and 2 hours from Pondicherry or Auroville. If you are travelling from the latter again Google for a taxi - I recommend Auro Cabs, Yoga travel any of the other Auroville taxis - they are clean reliable, honest and know the area better than Chennai based rivers.
