After a poor experience on our first night in Delhi, we changed our last nights to the C.R. and what a godsend that turned out to be ! Firstly the place. Good rooms comfortable in a quiet location and a good place for first/last nights in Delhi. The breakfast on the roof top was good with Banana bread and pretty...

We had a beautiful experience at the Colonel's Retreat, the location is perfect for visiting the most interesting points in New Delhi, people are very gentle, the rooms are very clean, breakfast is delicious and we'll come back absolutely next time we'll go to New Delhi. If you need to stay in Delhi then look no further than the Colonel's...

We stayed at Colonel's Retreat last October and again this year. The rooms are lovely, spacious and fresh and really clean. Coffee and tea makings, tv, air con etc. On our last night's stay we did not arrive from the airport until 1.00 am but the staff were there waiting for us and settled us into our rooms immediately. We...

I have stayed in Delhi several times now and I can say without a doubt that the Colonel's Retreat was far and away the best experience I have had. The helpfulness of the staff and the attention to detail is amazing. The food (which is all cooked from scratch after you order it) is exceptionally good. If you enjoy coffee...

If you hanker after the safe predictability of a five star international hotel then the Colonel's is not the place for you. If, however, you like to experience the lives of the people in the places you visit then this is fun. Set in the leafy green of a suburb devoted almost entirely to homes of the retired military, this...

I've stayed in Colonel's Retreat twice and it's been wonderful both times. There's a very relaxed air around the place and it's incredibly quiet. The breakfast on the roof is simple but a great way to start the morning. The view from the terrace is excellent. The rooms are cozy and comfortable and have most amenities of bigger hotels. They're...

Everyone and everything at Colonel's Retreat made our stay superb. Out of the main madness of Delhi we were warmly welcomed and advised where to visit, how to get there and what to expect. The Defence Colony Market- a 5 minute walk across the sewer!!!- became our 2nd home. Loads of lovely places to eat, friendly locals and a gentle...

A very friendly and very clean hotel in a safe and calm area - very friendly staff and owners, beautiful rooms, very good breakfast with the choice between indian food or continental breakfast with self-made marmelade and banana bread, and lunch also was very good. The owners offered a program for Holi in which all guests participated and it was...

If you are a person that prefers guest houses to larger hotels then this place is an excellent option. There are only three rooms and a shared living room on each of the 5 floors. The bedrooms and communal spaces are large, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The ambiance is warm, homely and we were always happy to get back to...
