A well located, quiet hotel with friendly, attentive and obliging staff and owners. A delightful terrace for meals and superb food. This is not the Taj but it is very comfortable and excellent value for the price

This is a lovely place to stay in Delhi with all the comfort of the large chain hotels but at a more affordable price and with lots of added personal touches. I had a lovely quiet room with a very spacious bathroom. The breakfast on the rooftop terrace was wonderful and I also had a very nice dinner there in... More

Colonel's Retreat was our home away from home in a Delhi. The rooms, breakfasts, assistance, friendliness, cleanliness, all were wonderful. We had 3 evening meals there which were superb, especially dinner on the rooftop away from all the Hub-bub of a bust Delhi. We arrived late-ish on our first night so it was very welcome to have home cooked meal... More

Our experience with the Colonel's Retreat was excellent. We arrived after a long day, having requested in advance that dinner be available. Getting in late, we weren't sure quite what to expect but were more than pleasantly surprised with a terrific meal, complete with beer, wine and a warm welcome from the staff. Meeting Arun at breakfast the next day,... More

Excellent, comfortable place to stay in South Delhi. Close to metro so easy to get around. We returned to this accommodation 4 times during our 6 week trip and found it an excellent base. The rooms are comfortable, and the breakfasts excellent. In the local area there are many great restaurants and shops as well. If I returned to Delhi... More

We spent our initial three nights in Delhi here and also used it as a base to return to after visiting other parts of India. We were able to leave surplus luggage here while we were away. Conveniently located half way between the airport and the city centre, this small family-run guest house is a delight. The rooms are clean... More

I've stayed at Colonel's Retreat several times and it is always an excellent experience. Clean, comfortable and very tastefully decorated/furnished rooms, excellent service from staff, and warm and knowledgeable hosts who are very helpful, very hospitable, and lovely to talk to over breakfast (which is often served on the terrace with great views). The food is delicious and the wi-fi... More

Beautifully decorated little bed and breakfast located close to the Defense Colony Market. Staff was very helpful and friendly. This location is just minutes away to some of the premier sights in Delhi. Breakfast was delicious including homemade banana bread and an assortment of homemade marmalade. Upon request this inn will prepare dinner for you and it is delicious. I... More

I stayed at Colonel's Retreat 3 times in 18 days. First two times with two friends. Each time I had a different room, each was really clean, large, comfortable. As others have said it's clean, modern & on each floor there is a sitting room. The staff were great. It was nice to be treated as a house guest. I... More
