We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Colonel's Retreat in Delhi. Arun and his helpful and professional staff did everything to make our stay there feel like a home. From the late night hotel pickup, great room, delicious breakfast and assistance with our young daughter. We will definitely be back to stay next time we are in Delhi.

Colonel's Retreat is not just a gem... it's a diamond! A very nice location in the heart of Delhi. At very good rates you get excellent service, a cozy and very homely ambience and some of the best shopping in Delhi nearby. A very relaxing and positive experience indeed!

This was my sixth visit to Delhi, although only for a few days this time. I have always stayed at Colonel's Retreat, and it still feels like coming home. The staff are excellent and attentive, and most have been here since my first visit in 2009. Arun is also very helpful and accommodating. Only minor complaint would be that the... More

Me along with my family never felt away from heaven. Service was prompt and all our guests were attended with open hands by the staff. It was a WOW experience. All time meals were delicious with no limitations on choice.

The place has its quaint areas which you would fall in love with. Aesthetically done and perfect for the modern business traveller who wants to feel at home after a hard day's work. Staff were extremely courteous and helpful. A lovely array of breakfast. Their homemade breads and jams are a must try. P.S> They have a splendid library. So... More

An excellent place to stay, the staff could not have done any more for us. Rooms are comfortable, breakfast really good, great communal areas to meet in. Overall, excellent and highly recommended. They will even do dinner when required.

We have always preferred staying at smaller establishments that don't come with the tag of global - so finding the colonel's retreat in Defence Colony in Delhi was such a piece of luck! The room was very comfortable, the breakfast really good and the staff were simply fantastic. We had our 5 year old and the staff were very accommodating... More
