      This is a clean, comfortable, quiet place. I very highly recommend it as a
      place where one can stay in a dignified and respectable way. They are very helpful with airport transfers and other transport arrangements too. It is
      extremely convenient to most of Delhi via both private and public
      transport. I am a Defence Colony Delhi-ite, so I know what I'm talking
      about!

      A very well run BnB in a quiet spot in Delhi. The staff were helpful and friendly without being intrusive. The breakfasts were superb, especially the masalla omlettes and the banana bread. The rooms were clean and well laid out, though the fridge in the room had not been switched on for a while. The staff got us some beers from the local supermarket and they were kept in the kitchen fridge for us. The evening meal we had here was gorgeous and eating on the roof terrace made it very special.

      Tucked away in a cozy lane of Defense Colony is Colonel's Retreat. The staff is very hospitable and, Arun Khanna is very well travelled. He loves to share helpful tidbits for those who are new to Delhi and India. It was a 5-day stay and each day I slept like a baby. Yes, the room and beds are super comfortable. Heck, I want a bed like that at home! The breakfast spread offers Indian food options along with bread, eggs, fruits and cereals. Bonus points to the freshly baked banana bread! Colonel's Retreat is a must-stay for those travelers who seek comfort and, meet interesting people like Arun Khanna.

      The colonel and his family and very welcoming and very warm. The b&b is in Def Colony and is easy to find - quite a posh locality. The food was excellent home made goodness. We needed a room heater which was provided promptly. Arun is a very interesting person and can give you valuable tips about delhi and around. Good talk!

      The main property in Defence Colony is well run, comfortable, in a lovely neighborhood. Excellent rooms, pleasant common room and dining room. Excellent breakfast. Lovely dinner one evening, upon request, for our group of 7. Staff arranged for taxi cabs very efficiently.
