HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 17 January 2017

It's quite simply one of my favourite places to stay in India - if not the world! That sounds a bit fantastic perhaps - but I love it. For a start there are twenty acres of grounds with all sorts of wildlife - including a white rabbit hopping across the tennis court. There is history - both Colonial and Indian...

Absolutely marvellous hotel. Can thoroughly recommend it. The bed was the most comfortable of all those we slept in in India and the pillows were divine by comparison - very high standard. Lovely setting and excellent amenities.

This 2 week stay was on business and the hotel couldn't have done a better job. Whilst not as dazzling on the eye as other business hotels I've stayed in, this hotel exceeded expectations. There are 2 restaurants and they were both exceptional. There is a gym which is adequate. The pool area is very good. Laundry service was always...

We have stayed at many of the Taj hotels in our years of travel to India. The West End offers a good level of service but does not perhaps live up to the standard of others. Having recently stayed at the Taj in Chennai where the service was exemplary the West End falls behind a little. In particular the waiting...

The Taj West End is a gorgeous place - a sprawling heritage property in the heart of the city, with plenty of greenery. However, the rooms weren't as nice as I had expected (considering Taj is otherwise so good with heritage properties). I understand that the idea is to retain the vintage feel, but the room just felt drab and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Celebrating 125 years and more, The Taj West End, an icon in the city of Bengaluru ideally located in the city centre, is in close proximity to the Bangalore Golf club and is well connected to all major business and IT parks. The 117 rooms and suites are designed for guests to enjoy the highlight of the hotel - the lush, greenery-and-water designed landscapes. This magnificent property opened its doors to guests as early as 1887 under a Victorian lady, Mrs. Bronson. By the turn of the century, Bronson’s West End’s prosperity had attracted a fair bit of attention, and in 1912 passed into the hands of the Spencers. Since 1984 the hotel has been managed by the Indian Hotels Company Limited. Exuding magnificence and history from every corner, today this hotel speaks to all travelers staying within its walls. The Taj West End is also home to some of the city’s most acclaimed restaurants and award winning restaurants, offering unique and exquisite cuisines. Each outlet; Mynt, Blue Ginger Masala Klub and Blue Bar will showcase their finest offerings, sure to enchant, impress and dazzle guests. The hotel has created several Exclusive and Unique Experiences for its guests all through the year, pampering and delighting them in true Taj West End style. Whether one opts for a Breakfast under The Raintree, Dinner at the Paradise Table at Blue Ginger or under the stars at Masala Klub, guests will surely make memories that last them a lifetime! The Jiva Grande Spa and Salon, State of the Art fitness centre and two outdoor pools ensure this is the ideal getaway for leisure in the city of Bengaluru! With over 25000 sq.ft. of indoor and outdoor banqueting space, The Taj West End lends itself wonderfully to business conferences, conclaves and celebrations alike. The Taj West End looks forward to welcoming its guests to Bengaluru’s favorite hotel, a true icon for hospitality in the city. ... more   less
