MTDC Holiday Resort Tadoba
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Chandrapur
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Please note: Visited MTDC Tadoba several (4) times since January 2011. Selecting a random visit date as the 'When did you travel' field does not have an option to chose a month before Dec 2012

MTDC Tadoba could pass off as the most basic, not so clean/hygenic, place to stay. However with Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve's ever growing popularity, this is the most economical, convenient hotel, located close to the Moharli Gate. The rooms are fairly big and can accommodate 3-4 people easily. The restaurant serves simple food (Dal, Rice, Vegetable curry, papad,etc). I like the kanda pohe breakfast they serve early morning before the safari. The hotel has a lot of space but is not maintained/managed well, also seems to be understaffed, but if you strike a good rapport with them, they will run the extra mile to serve you better. Having visited and stayed in MTDC Tadoba often, I've now grown to be comfortable living here, simply because I love the TATR jungle and what it has to offer.

Room Tip: Any Ac room is ok

MTDC Holiday Resort Tadoba in Todaba Anderi Tiger Reserve is one of the decent place to stay, Dont expect luxury here as this is kind of budget stay with average neatness.

Compare to the other option in Todoba, this is one of the options one can opt, You can have a decent room and homely food here,Service is not so great, may be because as this is a govt run resort.

But defiantly they can improve this place if they add service and quality to there menu.

If though this is a average place i do first check here for the availability if i am thinking to travel to Tadoba.

"You go to Tadoba to see/ photograph tigers, not for luxury."

That's perhaps the only excuse I'd use to stay at the MTDC resort in Tadoba. It's poorly managed, often quite dirty, the restaurant is a comedy of errors, you order non-veg food only by the kilogram, it's all quite horrible. That said, for the price, it's the best accommodation you can get. That's all I can say.

If you're keen on visiting Tadoba and wildlife is your key focus, book this accommodation early and then pray that you have a reasonable experience. If you're going in summer, hope that the AC works, and you can get a good night's sleep. All the best.

Located (side road) about 1 KM from main entrance. Clean rooms. 12 airconditioned of which every day 2 would give problems! Restaurant is contracted out, so no not geared up to the early safari. Every one wakes up around 7am. Need 2 hours notice for any food. Thali is the safest bet. Very oily side dishes.No room service.

Room Tip: Rooms 101 to 106 have the best view.

Just two words for this place - stay away. It is difficult to get accommodation in this area, so plan early. I initially planned to stay at this hotel for 3 nights. It is one of the budget accommodation in this area so I preferred it but glad I got accommodation for 1 night only and even that 1 night was terrible. Initially got an ac room but the ac didn't work. The hotel guys told me to wait for 10 mins to get the real cooling effect, I waited for one and half hours but it obviously didn't work. After a lot of argument I was shifted to another room where the ac was working and I spent the night sleepless, literally wiping off sweat from forehead.
Food is good enough though. The rooms were also clean. If you visit during winter this place just might pass as average but forget about this place during summers.
I am not the type who indulges in luxury, but after a safari during summers I need minimum relaxation and this place is far from that.

Room Tip: Good room? What are you talking about?

Being a Govt run resort, I did not have much of expectation from them. But somehow they disappointed me further. Guys, MTDC location is very very good. If you are a Birder or having interest in Birding, MTDC is a very good option for you. It is just on the bank of marshy land , where you will find a lot of birds . Bronze winged Jacana , greater adjutant Stork , Black Ibis , White Ibis .. a lot. More than that these lands are also home of one female Tiger. Sometimes , if you are lucky , may come across tat beauty. My brother was one of those.
Good things in MTDC:
1. Fantastic Location - specially for we wildlifers.
2. Rooms are Big : same is for the Bathrooms - most of the rooms are places on the lake side. Enjoy birding from your rooms.

Which may disappoint you most.
1. Food : very limited variety. Taste flat . Nothing great . Non Veg , better SAY NO. Unrealistically over priced. Chicken they serve in Kilos. If you order a Kilo , they server not more than 500-550 grams and charge Rs. 700 /-
2. Serve Time : Unacceptable Time. Each dish you order may take an hour to serve.
3. Ask for a Bottle of Water : When you ask Water , the guy will go for it and will not return till 15 min. after 15 Min he will come out with a key and open the fridge and serve you bottle. Be ready to be thirsty for 15 more mins.
4. Staffs : It seems the Facility has been given to Pvt Contractor for operation. They are actually destroying this place. They do not have any experience to handle the client or run a hotel business nor a restaurant business.These guys are making money ... and may be the Govt seems not yet ready for a facelift. Staffs are unfriendly , they offer no help even if you require a safari booking.

But atlast , Tadoba is an incredible place.I will keep coming.

Tips for Travelers and adventure lover ( even in case of Food )
- On the Mohrali villege there are couple of shops . Ask them to cook for you. If you are not spice lover . Ask them to cook little less spicy. They cook wonderfull local food. Fish / Chicken everything. It's a village food. They will serve you at their home only. will Cook lot of foods , which you can not finish .Charges : Very less .. Try out atleast once.
- Specially for the Bongs : Ask the locals where you can get Fish. They will guide you to a place where you can get fresh catches of the Tadoba Dam. Surprises will wait for you there. You will find all Bengali Families are there catching the fish and selling. Get Fresh Pabda ( Rs. 400) . Rui ( 1-2 Kg max @ rs. 200 ) .

Eat and enjoy majestic wild life of Tadoba.

Room Tip: Ask them to give Lake facing rooms. Those are better.

Just to inform all of that recently i visited TATR in april ,though my trip was amazing I must say that MTDC is really a horrible place to stay at Tadoba..
they wont provide you the safari , you hve to do on your own and that also 28 days prior to your visit.I somehow managed it though private tour operator and must say he did each every arrangement perfectly .As far as sightings are concerned Tadoba is a wildlife paradice truely jewel of Vidharba.I had booked 3 safaris out of which 2 were successfull i sighted 4 tigers on those 2 safaris , also not to forget i saw sloth bear and tiger in a same frame which is really a unique 1, but s far s MTDC is concerned its nt a right place 2 stay at TATR, i'll suggest to book Royal Tiger Resort instead . They 'll arrange everything for u from safari to pick up and drop also the food at MTDC is pathetic oily , spicy .....
