Good place to start your India trip from with its location in a quiet neighbourhood. The staff were helpful and friendly and the meals eaten on a nice roof terrace (breakfast and evening meal) were enjoyable and varied . The room was very clean and a good size.The owner was attentive to the guests. We would certainly go back there.

The Colonel's Retreat is located in the Defence Colony in New Delhi and is not easy to find. It is discrete to the point of anonymous but has the virtue of privacy. It is a clean, modern, well appointed modern townhouse, with elevator, and we stayed on the third floor. When we arrived, we found it cold and the staff... More

Thank you for the nice things you write about our place. We try hard to achieve a level of anonymity to keep things very private and quiet.. I am sorry you were cold at Breakfast . We normally move down to the dining rooms from the terrace about mid December to end of January . It must have been an... More

We stayed here at the beginning of our trip and at the end. It was a real treat to come back. The staff are welcoming providing tea and banana cake on arrival. The rooms have quirky paintings on the walls and comfy beds. We ate on the terrace in the evening and the food was lovely and the beer was... More

My husband and I spent 3 days at this charming hotel at the beginning of Diwalli in October. The location in a quiet neighbourhood, despite the firecrackers and celebrations, was perfect. The staff were pleasant and attentive. Excellent breakfast on roof top which also provided an ideal spot to view the fireworks etc in the city. We enjoyed the unque... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. We'd expected more of this place based on the TripAdvisor reviews. The B&B is okay. It's clean, people are friendly but it's also a bit strange in a way. It doesn't feel like a hotel and it doesn't feel like a B&B either. To small and different to be a hotel and to "not-personal"... More

I am a little confused how I should respond to this . If our place was clean , friendly , comfortable, well priced and in a nice part of the city - which criteria did we not meet ? We are a hotel when you want us to be - smart, efficient and business like .And a friendly B&B when... More

...in the frenetic environment of Delhi. We booked our stay on the strength of TripAdvisor comments and were not disappointed. The location of the property is in the Defence Quarter in Delhi, about 30 minutes by taxi from the airport and an easy 5 minute walk through the gated community in which it is located to the Metro. The rooms... More

The Coloniel's Inn is a comfortable, friendly and well-located B&B in Defence Colony. The staff is friendly, the food is great and the rooms are clean and with ample space. I travel to Delhi for business, and like to stay here, because of the reasonable price, good internet service and friendly atmosphere.

We stayed here for our first two nights in India. After a long flight it was wonderful to find such a peaceful and welcoming haven. Colonel's Retreat is conveniently situated in a leafy and secure part of Delhi. Our room was comfortable and adjacent to a very spacious communal lounge. WiFi, water and tea/coffee facilities were all provided free of... More

We had two stays at the Colonel's Retreat. Without the luxury of some hotels it was conveniently located, very nice, clean rooms, very pleasant staff. It was a lovely start to our Indian trip - a very pleasant mid level hotel.
