We are a group of 6. Our plan was to spend the first and last 2 nights of our 2 weeks holiday at the colonel's Retreat, New Delhi.
The rooms are spacious, well furnished and very clean. Most staff were very accommodating to our needs. Although it is situated close to local attractions it is surprisingly quiet as it is away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It has round the clock security, Wi Fi at no extra cost and delicious homemade fresh meals prepared at our request. The hostess was very attentive and caring. We felt very much at home here and looked forward to the 2nd leg of our holiday.
However when we returned, to our dismay our prepaid rooms were not available. The hotel had overbooked and did not secure our reservation. This was very inconvenient and stressful to all of us. We had to make new arrangements.
Thankfully, Our travel agents based in Delhi managed to get us alternative accommodation at the last hour. We spent the last 2 days at The Royal Plaza, New Delhi, a four star hotel & spa.
Colonel's Retreat is a lovely place to stay, we would recommend it to our friends with a warning attached to it. Make sure you reconfirm your reservations if you intend to break your journey.
