While planning my solo trip to Kanha what I was looking for is a comfortable and safe place to stay , convinient location, help to organize my safaris, pick up and drop from / to Jabalpur and good food ofcourse! all at a reasonable cost. I must say Motel Chandan exceeded all of my expectations. Mr Dinesh with his warm hospitality and all his staff have made my trip memorable. Not once did I hear a No or not possible for requests made. Situated right next to the khatiya gate it made it very convenient to reach the safari gate by myself and saved time. Kanha is definitely one of the most beautiful and magical forest. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment spent. I know I am coming back soon to Kanha and of course back to Motel Chandan.
After 2018 this was my Second Visit at Motel Chandan in Kanha National Park, and the experience of staying here was as usual fantastic to say the least.Location wise this is the best option you can get as its only two minutes walking from the entrance gate of khatiya, which means that extra 20-25 minutes of sleep in the morning. Secondly , I was pleasantly surprised with the new look of this place , which now looks very slick and lavish. The premium rooms just above the entry and dining place is a new addition to this property and are big, clean, with all the amenities required for a comfortable stay. The food is finger licking good and for me who follows a strict diet regime in regular life , it was getting a bit difficult to actually maintain the same here. :D. Please try their dal fry , vegetable kofta and Alu jeera, you will never forget the taste. The sighting in the park was not that great due to rainy weather but that doesnt takes away the charm of this place and warmth of both the owners Mr. Dinesh Makhija & Mr. Amit Makhija, both are great hosts and will go to every bit to fulfill your wish. Lastly, I would also like to thank two Safari Pilots Nadim Bhai and Kailash Bhai for their efforts inside the park.…
Superb location. I found the stay in Motel Chandan very relaxing & cozy. 1. Just 100 mtrs from Khatia gate. 2. Nice rooms with good interior. 3. Supportive and helpful staff 4. Mr. Dinesh Makhija (the soul of Motel Chandan) is an amazing person & is always there to ensure your experience is satisfactory. 5. Delicious food I would highly recommend this place for anyone visiting Kanha National Park.
Chandan motel is just a stones throw from the khatia gate for entry to kisli zone and kanha. This hotel has spacious rooms,well maintained,clean and above all food was really good ,just like home- cooked . The staff were very helpful, cordial and the owner is friendly man. One should definitely opt for this property if visiting kanha because it is so near to gate. I stayed for 3 nights and they packed breakfast well early morning and lunch and dinner consisted of tasty veg and non veg food .
Excellent location. Just 100 m away from the Khatia gate forest entrance. The owners Mr. Dinesh Makhija & his brother Mr. Amit Makhija were very courteous and helpful. Whatever demand we made, they obliged. The premium category rooms where we stayed were reasonably priced and comfortable. They have a safe parking too. We loved their food (Indian cuisine). Highly Recommended
We recently stayed at Motel Chandan during our trip to Kanha. The hotel was one of the first properties at Khatia and is very conveniently located just a few meters from the Khatia entry gate. The hotel is immaculately maintained with standard rooms in the ground floor opening up to a large lawn. The rooms are refurbished and have a nice Tiger themed decor. There are few premium rooms available as well , these are more modern in their ambience. This is a budget / mid range hotel. Dinesh was our affable host and he takes very good care of his guests. The staff was courteous,friendly and went around their tasks with a smile. The food was excellent and homely. Dinesh arranged all our Safari's and we had no cause for complaints. Out of our 4 safari's, we were lucky enough to spot a Tiger in 3 of them ! Overall an excellent ambience and a great place to stay and spend a vacation in an homely environment. Thank you Dinesh and Amit !…
I have the opportunity to avail the hospitality of Motel Chandan at Kanha this March.And it’s been a wonderful experience. Special mention should be made of the owner Mr.Dinesh Makhija who was ever ready to look after every need of the guests. Very well maintained outside with lush green lawns and trees and tastefully decorated interior rooms will definitely give any visitor the ambience of jungle. Sumptuous food is another positive of this hotel located at a throw-away distance from Khatiya gate of Kanha. Hoping to revisit Motel Chandan next year, I offer my sincere gratitude to the services you offered from pick up and drop to safari arrangements even at the last moment. Thank you.

Special thanks to Mr Dinesh , who arranged our trip to the forests of Madhya Pradesh (Bandhavgarh and Kanha) . Pick up and drop facilities, safari arrangements, rooms etc everything was excellent. Mr Amit is also a very helpfull and down to earth person who is always ready to attend the guests with a smiling face !
Chandan motel is just perfect if you are visiting kanha national park. The place is just outside the khatiya gate of KNP. ( 1 min walking). Clean neat and tidy place. Very decent food quality. Perfect rooms with adequate cleanliness. Well maintained property. I am vegetarian but my non veg food fan friends are extremely happy with the food quality. So the veg and NV food is nice.
