Our one night stay at Colonel's Retreat felt like we were in our own house. Very cozy rooms and friendly staff. Nice rooftop dining. Felt like a youth hostel, which was nice. Liked that our windows opened to the street for fresh air, and the balcony was a treat.

The Colonel's Retreat was absolutely fantastic and I would highly recommend it for business or couples. The staff were so helpful and accommodating. My colleague and I had a lot of small requests due to the nature of our trip and all were carried out for us with no fuss or problem, we were really well looked after. The rooms... More

I stayed at Colonel's Retreat for three nights. The room was modern and very comfortable with everything you needed. Breakfast was delicious and the company was even better. Bookings are tight. You could get lucky if you probably contacted them early.

We stayed here two nights before our trip to Shimla and then 1 night after. The hotel is in the middle of a residential area with no where to walk to and eat in the evening but does a limited menu itself. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the food was plentiful.

The staff were amongst the most charming, attentive and helpful ever. The room was spotless comfortable and spacious. The bathroom was perhaps a trifle run down but everything worked. The food was simply wonderful, with ample tasty choices of simple home cooked goodness. We didn't have time to explore the neighbourhood but it was quiet, even in wedding season! tree... More

Only stayed for a few days, but this may be one of the calmest places in Delhi. The hotel is very clean as well. Even the neighborhood around it is clean and quiet for the most part. The meals here were exquisite and just substantial. At times when I couldn't eat more indian food and just needed a "homey" meal,... More

Five of us recently stayed here on our arrival and were instantly impressed by the welcome from the friendly staff and the fact that in noisy Delhi here was a quiet oasis of calm. The rooms were spotless and comfortable and so good to have a bath. Breakfast on the roof was a joy and delicious. All we could have... More

This is my favourite place to stay in Delhi. It's well sited near Lajpath Nagar metro and is a short walk to Defence Colony market for some good bars and restaurants. The guest house is very well kept and maintained and you always receive a warm welcome. The staff are always willing to help. Five stars!
