Royal Park

Guesthouse in Tharangambadi (Tranquebar)

Attached to an outdoor meeting hall, this bizarre but friendly place has two clean, modern-ish, neon-blue-lit rooms (with kettles, hot water and air-conditioning) for two to nine people, beside a leafy garden. It's a 10-minute walk northwest of the fort and seafront, on the main road about 350m from the bus stop.
