great food and roof top setting.

The personal touch here was welcome for our first few days getting climatized!
Staff was wonderful and the owner spent lots of time talking to us all, making sure we were well looked after. The food was terrific

did not accommodate our request for 2 single beds

This was homely and much better than the area of Delhi it was situated in although we did walk out to the local market and felt very safe

good service, nice staff. location is not so convenient, and the bed sheet is not clean enough.

Great introduction to Delhi, enjoyed cooking class immensely, and breakfast on the roof, even in the fog!

Our room was on the ground floor, a bit noisy. But the owner's hospitality more than made up for it.

Quaint accommodations located in an upscale part of town but not too much to do if you want to eat outside for dinner. WiFi was good and breakfast was delicious. Too many mosquitos and our room was cold with no option for heater. Shower also designed poorly as water leaked all over the floor. Good hot water. Staff very friendly and helpful...if we could find them in the evening for assistance...during the morning/day no problem finding staff....Read More

Is a very lovely guest house. Staff was caring and polite. Location is a bit remote, difficult to find, but quiet. Service very good. Cold on roof in winter (for breakfast). Enchanting could advice traveler to bring jacket!

Great location to begin and end the journey. The team of gentlemen working there were great. The rooms were very clean. Loved the decor and atmosphere. The lounge on each floor was great. Loved dining on the roof.

We enjoyed the boutique hotel.

I would describe Colonels Retreat as a boutique hotel, not B an B. Found it most confusing that one wasn't sure who was in charge, no familiarization or greeting on arrival. Other guests also sat waiting for dinner at a dining table only to be told later that dinner was served on the roof.
The concept of this type of accommodation is to my mind preferable to the large impersonal hotel but it has to be well done....Read More

lovely owner and staff, but needs a little updating for example in the bathrooms, just our opinion

The Khanna family are wonderful hosts. We loved the ambiance, and the style. It is a perfect place to start a trip. The staff are excellent.

Very comfortable, excellent food and reasonably priced drinks. Staff were lovely. Highly recommended. Nice and quiet after the hectic pace of Delhi.

A basic, B&B yet family-type and friendly place with a charming owner couple and extremely helpful staff in a quiet, residential area of Delhi. While only breakfast is served, there are a few excellent restaurants in 1-15 minutes walking distance. Maybe I would recommend any other traveller to pay up for a higher quality hotel....Read More

Lovely relaxed atmosphere. Although we didn't use it the common room between rooms on each floor was really good. Enjoyed the rooftop dining :)

Fine - nice to have space to use outside the room and nearby parks to walk in. WiFi worked!

Great breakfast and met people who helped us what to see, where to eat and where to do some simple shopping.

Interesting neighborhood! We loved walking to dinner as well as eating on the roof.Good food, attentive staff, and unique way of mixing owners & guests .

Very welcoming and clean

Very comfortable beds
Mar 08, 2016
A truly minor detail, but there should have been more than one hand/bar soap in the bathroom, and too much food was prepared for our evening meals.

Sitting on the rooftop on our first night in Delhi was unbelievable - what lovely people - made us so welcome

Arun and the staff at the Colonel's retreat were friendly and Arun did everything he could to assist us. Lovely rooms, very clean and lovely food - especially the banana bread! It was lovely to return there between other places because it was so relaxing.

A very brief visit! The staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating.

Very brief stay, but nice atmosphere and breakfast on terrace

Bed very creaky. Owner was great

Very helpful, particularly with printing boarding passes for our return. Loved the banana cake and the rooftop dining.
Nov 02, 2015
The owner chit chatted with me during breakfast which I think is very nice of him. I would suggest better WiFi connection esp in the room where I stayed.

We were especially please when we returned to the hotel after a long drive from Agra to find out that we could order a meal and they would go out, shop for it, cook it and serve it to us on their rooftop patio.

homely, great food, the owner was very friendly

The owners were very friendly. The meals were very tasty. Accommodation was good.

This is the kind of place we really love to experience when we travel - more of a home stay. The owner Arun was on site and gave us great advice; our room was in a quiet part of the building; breakfasts and dinners taken on their rooftop terrace were very very nice. Just a couple notes: the shower did not drain well; the elevator wasn't working for the first day; and the wifi and television signal were in and out. None of these things were significant (all were reported to the staff and were resolved during our staff) but I wanted to mention them as they are probably just a function of this being a smaller hotel....Read More
