I and two colleagues stayed here one month while working in Delhi and I have to say a big thank you to all the lovely staff at the Colonel's Retreat. They could not have been more helpful, smiling and friendly. It's true the more junior staff don't speak much English but the senior staff do. They all made our stay there extremely pleasant. I particularly appreciated their help when I got a spot of Delhi belly from a dodgy restaurant in town - they called out a local doctor, picked up my prescription themselves, and cooked bland food for me on request while I was ill.
The room was very comfortable too, good air-conditioning, comfortable bed and clean modern bathroom. My only small complaint is that the safe provided was not attached to anything, it would have been more secure if it was fixed into the wardrobe. Some safes are attached, so I recommend specifying this when you book.
The breakfast provided was excellent, the laundry service was speedy (although specify ironing if you want this), and the meals we ordered in the evening were delicious.
They also organised a car to drive us to Agra and take us back the next day, for a good price too! We were very pleased with our driver who drove excellently and looked after us well. All in all we felt very well looked after.
