I stayed here for 2 nights while staying in Delhi. My room was large, clean and comfortable. On arrival, I was assisted to my room, and treated to hot tea and banana bread, which was a great way to start this hotel experience. Each floor has a sitting room, with a lender's library and outdoor porch. I ate dinner at... More

My time at the Colonel's Retreat was so wonderful! The rooms are clean, cozy, and nicely decorated. The bathrooms are better than were most others I experienced while in India. The wifi is also pretty good, and the rooftop cafe at one of the Colonel's Retreat locations is a peaceful place to relax. They have excellent coffee and food, and... More

We stayed for one night from 18 March 2015 in room 103. The hotel is located within the Defence Colony which is now a safe residential area with security guards outside of properties and pocket parks. However the hotel is only 5-7 minutes on foot away from the main road and metro, which takes you to many of Delhi’s historic... More

We stayed at the Colonel's Retreat at the beginning (for 4 nights) and end (2 nights) of our trip to the Golden Triangle in February. We wanted to experience a home stay rather than one of the larger chains for our first visit to India and we chose well with the Colonel's Retreat - it had a nice, homely feel... More

A fantastic place to stay in a quiet suburb of Delhi. This is our first visit to Delhi and thought it was great that we could wander round and explore the locality on foot. The rooms are reasonably large, beds comfortable and really nice walk in shower. The roof top restaurant is a great place to eat morning and evening.... More

This is a great place to stay in Delhi. The rooms are clean, comfortable and large with good en suite bathroom. Breakfast was good and we were luck enough to share dinner on the rooftop terrace for Diwali and watched the fireworks all night. Some nice places to eat within 5 minute walk and easy to get taxi or tuk... More

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.
