Well run, quirky hotel with lovely rooftop terrace. Indian breakfast with homemade bread, homemade banana cake and homemade jam. Dinner cooked from scratch and absolutely delicious. Rooms clean and with great air conditioning. We had an early start so they made us a packed breakfast.

Colonels Retreat was the first place we stayed in India and couldn’t have been happier. The rooms were beautifully decorated, spacious bathrooms with a touch of home amenities. The staff and family were very friendly and accommodating. A stunning roof terrace where you can relax and watch the black kites hovering as well as have the most delicious dinner (a must). Great homemade banana bread too. You are also tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Delhi but close enough to all the key sites to explore. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent small hotel for brief stay in Delhi! We felt very welcome, our rooms were comfortable and we enjoyed the free afternoon tea! Dinner and breakfast were also good and the rooftop restaurant lovely. The husband and wife hosts were charming and helpful, and the hotel very good value. Thoroughly to be recommended!

Nice cosy place to park yourself when you are in Delhi, polite, courteous staff, well appointed rooms, very homely feeling, maybe more so because the place is more like a home-stay. They need a few additions in terms of the crockery etc (like Ice Box). Otherwise an exceptionally great place to stay.

Thank you for your nice words - we have noted your requirement for an Ice box and the next time you come we would certainly have it.

Found through Trip Advisor and really nice place.

Not a hotel, more of a guest house but I'd take it over a guesthouse any day.

Breakfast has just been serviced and brilliant. Happily come back and would thoroughly recommend
