We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of our holiday and one night at the end and found the accommodation to be very good with many of the comforts of home. Although the menu was limited the food was excellent and something we looked forward to on our return. The breakfasts on the terrace were a particularly nice... More

We have spent three weeks in a room, at the very beginning of our stay in Delhi. We were nearly sad to leave, at the end of our stay, because of the kindness of the staff. Our little son (2 years) has really enjoyed the place, also, and everybody was so nice to him. The rooftop is great, and I... More

We spent three days at colonel's retreat and it was a comfortable stay. The high point about the place is the homely ambience. It almost felt as if we are staying in our own home. Nice and friendly staff and the place is child friendly as well.

We very much enjoyed staying at Colonels Retreat. The rooms were very comfortable and the staff went out of their way to be helpful, lending us travel cards for example. Breakfast on the roof was excellent. It is not far to the Metro station and from there an easy trip into the city centre. After a day in the city... More

With such handsome reviews on Tripadvisor, I did not think twice about the quality of the locality...I stayed in Delhi for 3 yrs that too in South Delhi during my initial stages of my career and I know Defense Colony is one of the most peaceful and expensive neighborhoods of the megacity. But it also has its fair share of... More

Colonel's Retreat is a high-quality homestay located in South Delhi. It is about a 5 minute walk from the nearest Metro Station (Lajpat Nagar), but you need to walk through a small hole in the wall to get there. The place has 16 rooms in 4 floors. Each room is well fitted with a comfortable bed, tea/coffee machine, clean shower,... More

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.
