Booked Motel Chandan online based on some other reviews. It's a good budget choice with clean basic rooms and a restaurant, only 200 yards from the park gate. Staff are helpful and polite. Food is good basic Indian fare. You can do American plan (all meals included in rate) for 500R per day. Looking at the menu, debateable whether it's... More

Firstly superb location! its the closest to Khatiya gate which gives you access to Kisli gate and Kanha gate which are the best zones. The booking counter was literally walking distance. Especially useful when we... More

The best point about Motel Chandan is its location, about 100 meters from the Khatia gate. I along with my friends stayed here for 3 days. Right from packing our breakfast for the morning safari (at 5 in the morning) to the dinner served at night, the service offered is amazing. The staff is very helpful. The room was clean... More

Coming to Motel Chandan made our trip to Kanha truly memorable. It's hard to heap enough praise on the place. Dinesh, the manager, is an absolute hero and worked tirelessly to make sure we enjoyed our stay. He helped us navigate the confusing and sometimes difficult experience of getting a safari ticket when you haven't booked in advance. He queued... More

Two of us visited Kahna for the first time and got reference of Motel Chandan from a Wildlife enthusiast just like us. Mr Dinesh, owner of Motel Chandan has excellent hospitality skills and arranged for a taxi from Pench (where we were) to Kahna. We arrived and easily checked in. It is the best location in Khatia, right next to... More

Ambiance is excellent. Its location is most important. Just before the Khatia entrance gate. This is and advantage specially for morning safari :) The owner Dinesh... More
