“A romantic breakfast to remember”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

My wife and I went to Taj West End for breakfast on her birthday. Located in the heart of the city Taj is surprisingly quite inside. They maintain high standard. The staff there are very friendly and the food was simply brilliant. We even took a couple of snaps on the lawn to mark the occasion.

The experience was absolutely romantic. Want to have a quite, calm and relaxed breakfast then TAJ WEST END is the place.

I stayed here on a business trip for a few days, it is convenient for Wipro, and Bangalore. The hotel is like an oasis in the middle of the hustle and bustle going on outside. It is beautifully planted with lush trees and shrubs, with individual bungalows and houses hidden away. You really feel you are a million miles away from the city. The good was lovely, breakfast particularly. The staff very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Lovely pool, private and discreet.

Stayed May 2013, travelled on business

The Taj West End Bangalore is one of the best hotel’s I have stayed at in India. At an affordable price, it promises so much more than the luxuries and comforts of every Taj property. A charming and historic property within 20 acres of lush greenery in the heart of any city is a luxury.

It is such a beautiful and charming colonial hotel which takes you through an era with so many paintings on the walls. Beautiful gardens and lovely restaurants it makes you feel being in a paradise staying in that hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for room in the Old Wing near the reception as it is very colonial.

Maybe one of the best hotels I have stayed in. It helped when we booked in that manager upgraded us to a suite without requesting it. The gardens and grounds are beautiful, all the restaurants are good, the blue bar being very atmospheric

This is really a great hotel. We stayed here for only one night but wish we had stayed longer.
Check in was very nice, they gave us an early check in and even upgraded us to a suite. We were very happy with our lovely room.

The hotels grounds are very spacious, and its nice to walk around.

What really amazed me here was the food. It is simply outstanding. Take breakfast for example and look at the fruit. The cut fruit is perfectly ripe, delicious, and cut is pieces in a way making them taste extra good. The breakfast area is more relaxing than many other hotels which makes it nice to enjoy your breakfast there.

Masala klub has outstanding food. We ate two dishes there aloo brocolli mutter and anardana jheenga. They were both outstanding memorable dishes. I would return to this hotel for the food alone!

My only comment would be that I think that the hotel should look into having complimentary wifi for taj innercircle gold members.

Love this place. friendly staff. Huge property, lovely poolside, beautiful colonial rooms. Really enjoyed staying there. The asian and Indian restaurant is really good,the coffeeshop is just ok. Though they do a good sunday brunch.

Room Tip: It helps if you have the Taj Card.

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
