Colonel's Retreat is located in the Defence Colony area of New Delhi. We had a transfer from the airport and reached the accommodation in less than an hour. First impressions were great, the room was clean, and the staff gave us all the information we needed on arrival, such as how to get to the metro station, and dinner arrangements,... More

I originally booked this B & B after reading it's review on Trip Advisor. I had stayed in Delhi many times over the last 45 years and I usually stay in a tourist area in the middle of this huge polluted filthy City among the hustlers and beggars and crappy food and rooms overcrowded with mismatched furniture. This time, I... More

We absolutely recommend to stay at this place. The rooms are big, clean, well furnished. The bathroom is very good as well. In every floor you have a common area with sofa and the dining corner. Breakfast was tasty, especially the banana bread. For dinner there is not that much variety to order but the one you can order was... More

5 star service all the way. Colonel's Retreat is set in the leafy and quiet suburb of Defence Colony. It's an oasis amidst busy New Delhi. The Retreat is well appointed and spotlessly clean with the really outstanding feature being the staff who did everything to accommodate us. We had a wonderful stay here and highly recommend this place to... More

Very warm and welcoming place. Absolutely safe for families. It has a gated community and a small park that is breather for moms and kids. I definitely recommend this place. Also the rooms are simple and very neat. It's got a slight resort kind of touch to it.

It's literally a second home. A few awesome mentions: Super safe and comfortable, home-cooked meals, excellent and non- prying staff, always ready to be of utmost efficiency and assistance, quiet and relaxing rooms, close proximity to massive choices of food, bars, parks, historical monuments, shopping, etc. This was my second stay and I'm going to consider this as my permanent...

I made a two-night booking for myself (Canadian & Polish) and fiancee (from Delhi). When we arrived, after providing our documents, I was told to speak to the owner on the phone; he informed me that because my fiancee was from Delhi that we couldn't stay for our booking. This caused lots of hassel and was uncomfortable, especially for her.... More

Arun k, Owner at Colonel's Retreat, responded to this review

Sir, the Delhi Police has a very strict rule that applies to B&B's and small guest houses like ours in Delhi. The rule is - DO NOT accept any booking from anyone with a local ID . WE APPLY THIS RULE STRICTLY AND WITHOUT EXCEPTION. It would be illegal not to. I am truly sorry you were inconvenienced . We... More
