“Another great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2011

This was my third trip to Delhi, and each time I have stayed at the Colonel's Retreat. The rooms and lounges are consistently clean and comfortable, and the staff are very attentive and eager to please with whatever assistance we needed with travel, meals, and accomodation. The location in Defence Colony is great, and I enjoy it even more as I get to know my way around the area. I am grateful to Arun and his staff for another excellent trip to Delhi and I look forward to next year!

The staff is very helpful, Its very clean, the airconditioning works which is crucial for delhi in July. the staff is very very helpful. The breakfast is pretty good and satisfying, especially their homemade banana bread. Since it was too hot to go out as much, we spent a lot of time just watchng TV, they have nice flat screens in the rooms with cable. This is a posh area of delhi, and the local defense colony market is walkable. To quote my husband, "I wish there was a colonel's retreat in every part of the world". Its very affordable, and so very good. Would defintely recommend.

Room Tip: Rooms next to the elevators are bigger, oh so much bigger.

My family visits Delhi often for business as well as leisure and Colonel's Retreat was recommended by a golfer friend after we had a few bad experiences. What a discovery, the rooms are extremely clean, fresh and comfortable, like anywhere in Europe, and the location is amazingly central. Breakfast is well served with home made surprises. Sure to frequet the place as often as we are in Delhi:)

We are local Delhites who needed a quiet, clean, beautiful, and accessible place to brainstorm the building of a new NGO. This place was it. It's a great central location, super quiet, with beautiful design and delicious food. We loved it so much, we came back. Highly recommend.

The Colonels Retreat is outstanding - large comfortable rooms – nice atmosphere - great location in Defence Colony (good bars, restaurants and shops) - easy travelling distance to anywhere you might want to go. Charming staff look after you very well and provide simple but excellent breakfast, call taxis, take car of laundry etc. I have been staying at The Colonels on and off for the last 6 months - it is my first choice when I come to Delhi.

After two colorful,impressive,but really exhausting weeks in Rajasthan,Colonel's retreat was like an oasis in the Indian hot July...Situated in a very beautiful,green neighborhood, only five minutes from the metro station,reminded me of home...I really enjoyed the simple,relaxing and very friendly atmosphere!Every morning always somebody was there to give us valuable information concerning Delhi,while we were taking our breakfast in the big family-like dining table!I would totally recommend it,it feels really like home hihihi :):):)
