I like this hotel. Ambience and rooms are ok. More new rooms are under construction. The service is good. Staff is good and friendly. Food is nice. Owner is caring and cooperative. Above all, this hotel is very closest to the park's gate so no waste of time for safari.

We visited Kanha last week and stayed at Motel Chandan. I will talk about three things which made staying at Motel Chandan a pleasure: 1. Service: Its no resort, but you will feel pampered. Dinesh bhai personally takes care of all your queries and makes sure that your stay is as comfortable as possible. Food can be served at your...

We stayed here for two nights during our jungle safari, and it was awesome stay at Chandan Motel. Pros- 1. Location. Resort is located right on the Khatia gate, from where the safari starts and ends. The only ATM of Khatia is located within its premises. This gets a big thumbs up from me as the place is rather remote...
