The Taj West End

Nestled in the midst of 20 acres of magnificent gardens The Taj West End is one of the finest hotels in Bangalore.The Taj West End has welcomed guests for over a century and is more a legend than a hotel.

Looking back at a history of the city's first lodging, built in 1887, today's Taj West End is an experience. The hotel is opposite to Bangalore Turf Club and is next to Bangalore Golf Club.

In 1887, Bangalore was a leafy British cantonment and all families owned a part of the city's gardens. A British couple, Mr and Mrs Bronson opened a boarding house with ten beds. With the opening of the Suez-Canal (1869), it became necessary to have an organized system of lodges, as more and more officers came into India. Bronson's West End, the genteel boarding house, was efficiently run. In 1912, it passed into the hands of the Spencers.

As the inn's popularity grew, the Spencer's felt the need to expand the facilities. Some of the inherently charming features of the architecture were the tiled roofs, distinctive gables, dormers, monkey-tops, trelliswork and intricately carved fascias. By 1984, Spencers entered into an agreement with the Indian Hotels Company Limited, which brought fresh life and idea of modern hospitality to the Taj West End.
