Stayed at the Colonel's Retreat on two occasions during our recent visit to New Delhi. This is a very welcoming "homestay" and the host ensures that all guests are comfortable during their stay. The rooms are adequate and are set on three floors, each with their own lounge. Complimentary tea/coffee on arrival is accompanied by banana bread that is first...

After a harried road trip (there seems to be no other kind in India) and good but rougher accommodations to go with our elephant sanctuary volunteer work, finding that our guide had booked us here was truly delightful. The area is quiet, but convenient to central Delhi attractions, the rooms and bathrooms spotless, and the full pots of select coffees...

We stayed for 1 night at the Colonel's retreat at the start of our 3 week Indian adventure. What a wonderful introduction to India following our long haul flight. Greeted with banana bread and coffee taken in one of the many cosy sitting rooms dotted around the property. The room was spotlessly clean and with all the facilities you would...

We stayed for 6 days at the end of Jan/Feb and settled in very quickly. The staff are friendly and the owners offered us so much help and hospitality. They are full of information about getting out and around in Delhi and advised us on visits to events and sights that, as tourists, we might not have known about.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is very comfortable and gives you a feeling of being at home. The breakfast is really good and you have a choice of coffee. The dinner on the roof top is great and home cooked.

I stayed 2 days at the beginning and returned for 5 days at the end of my holiday. The staff were all very friendly and the food was wonderful - ate dinner there quite a few times - freshly cooked and excellent. The hotel was very quiet but a short taxi ride from the hustle and bustle of New Delhi....

After long flight we arrived at Colonel's Retreat very late in the evening. The staff were very welcoming and helpful on arrival. The owners were very knowledgeable and were available to assist with any questions. Breakfast was very good and the banana bread was delicious. Location was short walk to good restaurants and bars.

We loved staying at Colonel´s retreat. The rooms are clean and nice. There is a small heater for the winter temperatures. You have to wait a little longer for the hot water, but you get used to it. I liked there mind set bout refilling water bottles, baking their own breads and cooking their marmalades. The people are super nice...
