Excellent budget hotel with a Owner who shares a good camaraderie with the guests during the trip..... provides extended service of jeeps, good drivers, park entry assistance. The Restaurant provides for good food, breakfast. The rooms are good enough for the stay since majority of the time we are in the jungles or resting in afternoon after the 4pm wake... More

Motel Chandan’s location is just perfect. Just a stone’s throw away from Khatia Gate of the Kanha Tiger Sanctuary. The over all ambiance of the hotel is quite simple maintaining a balance with the nature. The rooms were clean , room size ample with comfortable beds but requires a facelift due to old furniture and peeling paint at some places... More

It is an average accommodation. The best part is - they are close to the Main Safari Entrance. They have their own gypsies. Rooms are spacious but the jungle theme is bit worrisome if you are not used to it. Food is made to order and good to taste. Overall it is ok kind of place - not something like... More

One of the best accomodations I had while travelling through India for 4 months. Room was huge, nicely decorated, had a modern bathroom and everything was very clean. Restaurant served... More

We booked Motel Chandan for one day as we were reaching Kanha late and didn't want to spend on any pricey resort for just a night's sleep. Apparently it is hardly 5 minutes walking distance from the Khatia Gate. The rooms had coolers and they are simple and clean without being anything special. However, if you are keen on spending...

We met Dinesh at the Ticket Counter and he convinced us in a very friendly way to have a look at his place, Motel Chandan. The place is very beautiful! The rooms are very nicely decorated, in fact, these were the prettiest rooms I have seen after travelling 2,5 months through India. The rooms have a "Tiger Theme" that matches... More

Clean, spacious rooms at a great value with exceptionally personalized service. Location is unbeatable with just steps to the Kanha gate. Dinesh will take care of all your needs and runs the place efficiently. Book with them directly to avoid middle men who will only escalate your cost.
