Colonel's Retreat

Delhi | Standard

A perfect fusion of small hotel, upmarket guesthouse, and luxurious bed and breakfast, the Colonel’s Retreat offers characterful, elegant accommodation in a peaceful suburban area of Delhi.

Throughout the property décor is modern, fresh and understated, with simple furnishings offset by splashes of colour and bold prints. Bedrooms open on to a semi-private lounge area, adorned with a number of original artworks. Although undoubtably there is a lack of some of the facilities you’d expect to find in the average hotel (there’s no concierge or reception desk for example) the friendly and well-travelled owners are always on hand to assist.

With the restaurant concentrating on wholesome family recipes, attention to detail when it comes to breakfast time is exemplary, with freshly baked breads and delicious jams and marmalades made on site. Weather permitting meals can also be served on the rather unique rooftop terrace, allowing guests to enjoy views across the city. Alternatively, the restaurants and bars of the Defence Colony Market are within easy strolling distance.

For those keen to explore, many of New Delhi’s attractions are close by. Excellent cooking classes can also be arranged with Mrs Meena Khanna and her team of talented home chefs.

We Say

Very different to your average hotel in Delhi and full of homely touches – especially the famous banana bread!
