We were en route from Jabalpur via bus to spend a day or two exploring Kanha National Park, in hopes of spotting a tiger! But before we reached the park, we were told by a local agent to get off the bus earlier than expected, and we were left over a kilometer away from the park, at a not-ideal hostel.... More

Rooms were lovely and the bathroom clean and tidy. Rooms are being done up, but they are already very nice. Staff were helpful in organising our tiger safari and it all worked out perfectly. Also very knowledgeable about transport to other locations which was very helpful as it is quiet remote. Kanha is definitely the national park to see tigers…good... More

We stayed in motel chandan for 4 nights. Our train from bhopal to jabalpur arrived at 9.30pm so buses were not an option for us. After getting in contact with the motel they arranged a taxi pick up from jabalpur station which was cheaper than the other tourist options we found online but substantially more than the 5-10 rupees per...

If you want to get in the National Park without an advanced booking this is the place to stay. The advice provided by the manager and his brother is the reason we were able to visit the park despite the mess of a system in place at the park for on the gate ticket sales. The room is also great... 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
