spent five days relaxing at the colonels retreat at the end of three months traveling india.sublime is the word that springs to mind as we got cosy in the clean safe surrounds of arguably the best guest house, for the price ,in india.the rooms were bright roomy and clean,the home cooked meals were simple tasty fares and the staff could not be more helpful. the nearby defence colony market (ten minutes safe walking distance) contains many fine eating places and shops to add to the package.thankyou arun and staff for seeing us gently out of india.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Colonel’s Retreat.
The place is new, clean, modern and well equipped for all travellers’ needs and comfort.
Arun makes sure it stays that way for a long time. He is always available to help
Location is central yet quiet, thanks to its position in Defence Colony.
Food and service are as good as a restaurant’s, staff is well trained (actually saw that), very friendly and happy to help any time.
Don’t forget to sample the home-made banana cake and jams,

We stayed at colonel`s retreat for five nights. it was really a wonderful stay. Arun our host was very kind and helpful and he was really a good guide. His advices made our trip memorable and wonderful. he booked train tickets for us and provided us with a SIM card.
the place was located in a very nice and quiet neighborhood as well as it was very close to market and good restaurants around 10 minutes by walk.
the rooms were very clean and well designed, there were always warm water and toiletries available.
the rooms are equipped with safety box, fridge, LCD TV and AC.
the bed was very comfortable and sheets very clean.
the breakfast was served when ever we wake up and it was a combination of warm and cold breakfast.
And all the staffs were very helpful and available whenever we need them.
All and all it was a very nice and good place to stay.
thanks Arun.

I spent 2.5 weeks in India: primarily, in New Delhi and Rajasthan. During this time, I stayed at 7 different places and can say that Colonel's B & B was my favorite. The place opened very recently and everything is very new and clean. The staff is extremely courteous, friendly, and helpful. The food is clean and delicious, and the owner Arun is accommodating in any possible way. The place is located in the residential area, which is quiet and safe. There is a market within a walking distance with some nice restaurants, tailored for tourists. I would look no further!

It was like visiting and staying with a good friend! Arun, our host, was extremely gracious and helpful. The entire crew was warm and wondrously attentive. The atmosphere was most welcoming. We were provided with excellent advice on places to go and see, to eat, and to shop... and personal assistance in getting there and/or hiring transportation and/or guides at better than very reasonable prices. When we wanted to eat in, the food was absolutely great. I cannot imagine a truly better place to stay!

Delhi can be congested and chaotic but what a welcome landing in this lovely oasis called Colonel's Retreat! Rooms are perfect and brand new with all amenities including small fridge, coffee maker, AC, safe, etc. Great place to travel with friends--very intimate and a great common room to socialize in. Good internet access that's free!

You would pay much more for this at a 'high brow' hotel, and get less personalized service. We were so fortunate to find this place--enjoy it!
