Food is good and can't beat the location for safari's in the surrounding park. We started at the FRH and did safari from an outside hotel the second day and there was really no comparison. Rooms were pretty sparse, with no A/C. Be sure to make reservations early. Foreign nationals can reserve earlier than Indian citizens for unclear reasons. We...

interesting place in the hart of Corbett Natl park. The loges are functional, basic, I'd say maybe a little run down. beds are very basic. food is good and sufficient but repetitive. but, the real reason you go is the park. location location location.

This is a little gem to stay and the only place to stay in Dhikala. Being a govt rest house, I expected very less comforts but was taken for a surprise. This is totally unlike Bijrani rest house in fact. We were a group of 7 people with a 6 year old child travelled in December for Corbett safari.The rest...

I highly recommend contacting Saurabh Agrawal of The Indian Voyage to assist with arrangements. He is incredible! He arranged a private taxi for me from the hotel in Delhi to Corbett National Park. Great driver, punctual, very clean car, good English. He also made all my reservations for the Dhikala Forest Rest house, early morning elephant ride, jeep driver and...

Alll details by me is subjected to 22 December 2016. I missed the booking of Dhikala but managed to get a canter safari. The property is just awesome. Getting a booking is similar to get a lottery. If a couple is travelling, you will take less time to fill up online form and chances to get the booking is higher....
