Great location, great place, super friendly, caring staff and delicious home-made food. A nice cool beer at the rooftop terrace completed a perfect stay. I only stayed for a few days in this quiet and green area which was quite a relaxing experience each day at the end of a hectic day in Delhi & Delhi traffic. I will certainly... More

We stopped en route at Delhi at the Colonel's Retreat from our long journey from the Himalayas. This hotel was the perfect place to relax and unwind for two days and catch up with friends in Delhi. The staff is very courteous and helpful and our room was very comfortable. The decor is tasteful and what I love most is... More

This is the second time we have stayed at Colonel's Retreat and it does really feel like a home from home. The Khanna family have perfectly captured the spirit of Indian hospitality and instilled it in their team. Nothing is too much trouble but you never feel bothered. The hotel is a great base for visiting the sights of Delhi... More

Love the place, love the staff and it's home away from home for us! We arrived in the middle of the night as usual, after a long tiring trip from NYC, the staff was aware of our late arrival and took care of us. Morning breakfast was amazing, the rooms were promptly cleaned in the mornings and the staff was... More

I cannot rave enough about this hotel and would recommend it to anyone who visits Delhi! Located on a quiet street in D block of Defence Colony and a quick 10 min walk to the Defence Colony market with restaurants, coffee shops, florists,nail salons, etc. The beds were comfortable, bathroom was nice, bath towels were plush and AC worked well...

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

When another Hotel owner ( who has been in this part of the World for 45 years ) gives you a pat on the back, it is indeed very special. Thank you Candy, it was a treat to talk to you and learn from you . More

If the title didn't say it all, let me explain-- the place is located in a safe neighborhood, its clean, with large well-lit rooms, well kept common spaces, courteous staff, and a very accommodating owner. I really enjoyed the large bedroom I stayed in with a comfy bed, and a clean shower. The room is cleaned regularly, and they provide... More
