The Corbett Motel is perfectly located, only 2 minutes from the Ramnagar train station, yet on the edge of town, set amongst a grove of mango trees (monkeys included). We chose the tent accommodation due to is budget (500r per night) and the experience. The well cleaned toilet block was about 40 meters away. The outdoor restaurant is the real star of the place, fast service (by indian standards) and great food which not only attracts tourists but locals as well. A misunderstanding via email meant we missed out on a morning safari but Karan the owner called in a few favors and got us one that afternoon. The tents were clean, comfortable and had power, lights and a fan. Karan and his brothers/cousins certainly provide great service and a good price. B.Y.O. regular beer as they only had Kingfisher strong when we were there. If you are a light sleeper bring earplugs (you are in a tent after all!!!). The morning call to prayer or the dogs chasing monkeys woke us up most mornings.
