“Perfect Home away from Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

I was there for one night with my family members( group of 14) and we had an amazing experience of home away from home. Rooms were quite spacious, bathrooms were neat and clean and top of that food was awesome. Whatever we wanted to eat, we told them in advance and it was served in a proper manner. It's a proper house and very well maintained by the staff.

We (group of 14) have recently stayed in Colonel's Retreat, Jammu for a night on 19th July 2014 and we couldn't have asked for a better place.
- The property is extremely well maintained and reasonably priced.
- Very well appointed rooms especially the Commander Room 1 with a huge bathroom and walk-in closet.
- Courteous & Polite staff at your service.
- Delicious Home cooked food as per your choice served with fresh hot chappatis.
- Colonel Randev (the owner), himself will ensure that everything is at its best for his guests.
- 3 very friendly Labrador Dogs - Rambo, Blacky & Bunker.
- Truely "A Home Away From Home".
I suggest that you speak with Col. Randev directly to book your stay instead of going through web portals.
For more information, visit http://colonelsretreat.blogspot.in/

Room Tip: All the rooms are very well appointed. If you are lookign for luxury, go for the Commandar Suites.

The Colonel's Retreat has been my best experience in my trip to Kashmir. It is everything it promises and more. Excellent service, lovely homemade food which makes it irresistable. Very comfortable, truly a home away from home.

It was Hikers club's first time with this hotel so we were not sure about anything, but as we entered the hotel premises we were warmly welcomed by the owner himself which was awesome feeling. As we were given the rooms and as we entered the rooms we went crazy seeing the rooms. The names of the rooms are also very unique. There were 3 sweet dogs with whom we played. We asked Colonel sir about dinner timings and he said ' you guys do so much adventure, today we will do some by serving you at anytime, feel free , consider this as your home' that was very touching. The service provided was perfect. The food was very tasty. The hotel is decorated and themed with all Army style. The Hiker Club members were very happy.

I am a regular visitor of Jammu and was in search for a suitable place for a comfortable stay. After trying many hotels I found this place best in terms of stay, comfortability, peace and a feel like you are at your home. Decided to stay always in this place whenever visiting Jammu. It is actually a PALACE which is created by Col. Parmar. Everything has been done with a thought, which a person requires while traveling. Staff is very cooperative. If you really don't want extra show off and want a comfortable peaceful stay then go for it without second thought. Manish Manchand
