Stayed at this resort with some friends on our routine tiger resort trips. I was a bit sceptical about stayin at a resort run by a government agency such MP Tourism, but in the end turned out to be a lovely experience. The booking is done online and the check in and check out process was very smooth. Staff extremely... More

We stayed in this resort on 28th and 29th Jan 2015. Being a Government run resort, we were bit unsure about the quality of stay there; but to our surprise, it came out as an excellent place to stay. It is located close to Turia gate (about 1 km) of the tiger reserve. (suggestion: This is the gate which handles... More

In general Government run hotels and resorts lack a lot on service though as usual they have the best location in town. For Kipling, the location obviously is one of the best, just on the edge of the core area, but the service is also somewhat superior to its contemporaries, though not comparable to top ranked resorts. The information flow... More

There are only a few places that can legitimately claim to be hotels in Pench. This is one of them and it competes with big name brands. But if you are not very brand conscious, this is the place to stay. Clean, responsive staff, all the facilities you would possibly need, (cable tv, swiming pool, gym, bar, internet and now... More

We visited Pench on the 3rd day of its opening in 2014 winter season (18th Oct) & stayed with Kiplings Court. This was our first visit to the park, and although there were couple of cheaper accommodation options available, we decided to stay with this hotel as its managed by MP Tourism & had very good reviews. We weren't disappointed... More

Though this was my 4th visit to Pench National Park from Turiya Gate, my stay at Kipling's Court was the first time in November 2014. All my guests liked everything about this place. Ambience of Kipling's Court is pleasant. My room mate used to stay out of the room always as he liked to feel close to nature; watching jungle... More

The site selection for hotel is lovely is just on the bank of a stream Where a machan is for reconnaissance. A very good swimming pool, a fine lay out of cottages.Above all the testy food and nice soft spoken staff at government run resort simply unbelivable.Thanks to well trained management

We started our "Jungle Safari Adventure" with Pench. We were 3 adults. The resort is well located, not too far from the Safari gate entrance. Rooms were slightly cramped with 3 adults, otherwise well situated& reasonably priced. We were given our rooms on immediate arrival without any fuss on early check in. They have a small AC bar, stocked with... More
