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

This really is a good place to stay in busy New Dehli. The rooms are comfortable with an excellent breakfast and restaurant. Very friendly and efficient personnel! The guesthouse is situated in a green, luxurious and safe environment. We also liked the small markets (Defense Colony,...)near the guesthouse (we got the info from the guesthouse) with coffee shops, libraries etc.... More

Thanks to the recommendation of this B and B by 2 acquaintances, we booked for 4 nights whilst passing through Delhi. The service of the staff could not have been any better, and the rooms were comfortable and roomy, and the facilities excellent....even laundry could be done overnight and brought to us next day! Can I especially mention the meals... More

Very lovely & charming guest house, yes "guest house" would be better to describe this place rather than hotel. Staff is hard working and attentive. I enjoyed my stay pretty much. Before you book this place, you should take notes that Colonel's Retreat is located in a very quiet and residential area. (Defense Colony) Also my tour guide explained that... More

We were in delhi for a family affair, and this place was like our own home. The rooms are very comfortable, modern and practical. Best part is a drawing room on each floor where we met family and friends visiting us. Food was very tasty. Everything made us feel extremely comfortable. Don't forget to check out their banana cake.

Strange hotel but has a lovely homely feel. Owners are very pleasant! All the food is home cooked and served on the roof terrace. Delicious. The hotel is in a very quiet area. The air con was good, the cleanliness was good. Couldn't recommend enough for a humble stay in Dehli.

We are located in an upscale, leafy and quiet part of Central Delhi.. An excellent well stocked market which has over 60 restaurants is within a 7 minute walking distance.. If you ask our security guard for a taxi it will arrive within 5 minutes. As a matter of policy we dont have phones in the room as ringing phones... More

I was so sad to be leaving India after a wonderful time but on my last night stayed at this wonderful place and I vowed that I would return next year. There was a refridgerator in the room which is always a perk and one needed to reserve a time to eat in the rooftop restaurant. I had an enjoyable... More

We stayed for overall 4 nights in March on recommendation from our travel agency. We did a circle in Rajasthan with start and finish in Delhi and stayed both times at the Colonel´s retreat (and that was a very good decision). We enjoyed Holi with the Colonel und played with the colors - we will never forget that; so much... More
