We stayed for two nights at the Colonel's Retreat and very very pleasantly surprised. The first night was a late arrival so we really just went to bed but because we had such an early flight in the morning the hotel packed us breakfasts to take along. The banana bread was outstanding, homemade and so fresh. We all loved it.... More

We were so happy that we stayed in this Bed and Breakfast during our trip to Delhi. It always felt nice going back to your room after a loud and busy day in the city. The owners and the staff are all so nice and the breakfast food is amazing! And yes, the banana bread is as good as everyone... More

We had to leave our home in Kathmandu in a hurry after the earthquake and, based on two previous stays, knew that the Colonel's retreat would be the only place to recover. Excellent staff, great rooms, all the luxuries of a 4 star hotel at less than half the price. Defence Colony is a wonderful safe neighborhood with lots of... More

My husband and I stayed at Colonel's Retreat for 3 nights while exploring New Delhi. It was excellent. Our room was quiet, clean, very comfortable, with all of the little touches that make 'guest houses' like this one unique and homey. We ate breakfast and dinner every day on the rooftop and really enjoyed the serenity, the delicious meals and... More

A residential property converted into a Bed and Breakfast joint in the heart of New Delhi. Small but very comfortable, neat and clean. Very comfortable to stay. You feel the experience of a PG. Service is excellent.

I recently led a group on tour through India. We stayed at both properties (airport and Defense colony locations). The service is 10 out of 10. This is the only place I will stay when traveling in Delhi.

I love the colonels retreat as a guest house. Me and my friend have stayed here at least seven times already and each visit has been wonderful. The rooms are clean, fresh and rather nice looking. The terrace is lovely. Breakfast and other meals are also very nice and much better than many restaurants. The staff is super friendly. I... More

Where to begin! My parents and I stayed at Colonel's Retreat for roughy three nights. On our arrival we were greeted with such a warm welcome and many smiles. We were shown to our rooms and they were so clean and refreshing. Everything looked and was in crisp condition. We had breakfast and dinner here and every time we were... More

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
