Corbett Motel
Reviewed 10 April 2012

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.

Just spent a wonderful weekend at this lovely resort. We chose to stay in one of the tents which met all expectations and really set the scene for a safari feel. The tents and rooms all opened into a large shady mango orchard providing a relaxing area to while away any free time.
Karan, the manager took great care of us and provided exellent recommendations about what to do as well a organising our safari into Corbett Park and daily transport. An efficient waiter anticipated our needs and accomodated the children's non-spicy palates and the food was amazing.
Highly recommend this place if you're looking for a cheaper option to base yourself.
We were 3 families with children 7-13y.

We stayed here in May 2011 and Karan was an amazing host. I had a baaaad case of the Delhi belly on arrival, and he even went out of his way to nurse me back to health. It was also my birthday in the days that we stayed there, and he helped my boyfriend make it extra special. The place is very peaceful and relaxing. The rooms are very affordable and CLEAN, which is extremely hard to come by at this price point. I would HIGHLY recommend this place to everyone! (and the food is great too!) An absolute gem in all aspects!

I stayed here for a long time. Just because the place itself was so amazingly relaxed and the crew so helpfull. It is the totally opposite to many buzy cityguesthouses in northern India. This is located just outside town. 15 minutes walk to the market. There is a nice shadow from the mangotrees and an open place if you want to sit in the sun and chill with a sweet lassi from the restaurant. Karan is the manager and he will help you with whatever you want to do. If you want to go to the national park here is a bunch of experts to talk with. And they will organize everything for you. They give you good prices and you do not have to be afraid of being overcharged. I stayed in one of their classy tents with two beds and electricity. Really nice!

Awesome place to stay. inside ramnagar yet away from all noise. surrounded by mango and litchi orchards (think summer). Karan is a very friendly guy. Food - Never had so much and so tasty. We all ate like we would never get to eat. even sent lunch to our adventure activity place. Truely awesome. by the way - we were a group of 18 people. lot of open space to sit n have bob-fire. hardly any place would be better for this price.

It was one of the best journey's in my life. It's very quite place to stay. The Hotel is in the Mango Orchard & it has tents & Rooms available. I stayed in Tent & it was very clean, outside my tent we also have the recliner & hammock. Mr. Karan Singh Bisht owns the hotel & was very kind & friendly with us. He also organized Safaris & Bon Fire for us. The food was delicious & if you are a Non-vegetarian, then it's a heaven for you. The hotel staff was very Hospitable & Quick. In overall it was a " WOW " experience.

Room Tip: Stay in the tent & take some tips from Mr. Karan before going to safari.
