I was so pleased with this wonderful establishment. I was introducing two friends to India and this was the perfect first step in our trip. The staff was excellent. I sent my friends to Agra by car and that was my only concern as the car they ordered looked very tired for such a long trip. Fortunately the driver was... More

I spent a couple days here and really enjoyed the stay. It was a nice quiet location and conveniently located. The room was very comfortable. The staff was more than accommodating. The best part was the breakfast in the morning up on the roof veranda. It was a lovely setting with a very nice view. I saw more beautiful birds... More

I stayed at Colonel's retreat for about a day. After a 10 hour bus ride from Dharmsala, this place was amazing. From the moment that the cab pulled up, I had a great experience. The staff was friendly, the hotel was quiet and very clean. I was pleasently surprised about the rooms, they were very spacious. The lunch that they... More

I stayed at Colonel's retreat for around 3 weeks. It was my first time in India and I was travelling alone (female). Staff was superb friendly and helpful. They are ready to offer any sort of help. Place is clean and cosy too. Highly recommended. Its location is also one of the safest and poshest places in Delhi.

Colonel's Retreat became my home in Delhi because: 1) Extremely clean rooms, toilets, and common area. 2) Wonderful, helpful and thoughtful hotel staffs who spoke good English and served with professionalism. (They even remember my preference for small things like breakfast, laundry and arrangement of toiletries. *Surandar and *Suresh) 3) Well-located in the posh residential area where one can feel...

Nice homestay in Defence colony. Its near to Lajpat Nagar Metro station. Rooms are well maintained and the staff is also good. The locality is very elite so no issues if any foreigner is staying. Recommended place to stay.

This was just a place to rest for a few hours before catching an early morning flight, so did not really have much expectations. In fact, after 10 hours in a train, anything with a bed and a clean bathroom would have sufficed. But this place is a gem! A guesthouse in a quiet suburb, well maintained and comfortably furnished...

Clean rooms, tasteful bathroom with nice enclosed shower and plenty of hot water. TV, free wifi, and air worked well. Lots of closet storage space. Rooftop balcony, though in the process of being fixed up. Great breakfast of banana bread, brown bread, eggs, paratha, and other typical Indian breakfast delights. You can order dinner there as well. Very helpful staff,... More

I have just completed my first extended stay at Colonel's retreat - over 5 weeks - while in Delhi on business. The guest house is an absolute must for both tourist and business travellers as it meets all requirements: exceptionally welcoming and friendly management and staff, fabulous location, high levels of comfort and cleanliness and an absolute 'can do/will do'...
