We stayed at this property recently and had a wonderful experience. Being a Govt. property we were sceptical till we checked-in. The manager Mr S P Singh and his band of merry men including Mr Sen in the restaurant and Mr Kishore in the front office provided us with unparalleled service. All requests however trivial was handled by them promptly.... More

We have stayed in many MPTDC lodges & resorts. Some of them are pretty good. But this was undoubtedly the best. We stayed in AC Deluxe rooms - on the first floor, above the standard AC rooms. Balconies are lovely - whether for a drink or for morning tea or for plain sitting out. Great view from the rear balconies.... More

Kipling's Court has the best location for a visit to Pench Tiger Reserve. The cottages are well equipped and efficiently maintained by Madhya Pradesh Tourism. We stayed this property from 13th April to 15th April 2015 for two nights. Property was booked by Northeasttravels Kolkata +918972247306. We choose Two / three property but they suggested to stay at Kipling court... More

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
