This hotel allows you to get away from the busy city life and bring you to another world inside Bangalore. The hotel is more like a jungle resort with lots of green and large colonial design rooms. breakfast at the cafe Mynt is also pretty decent and service is really good all around the hotel.

I was so tired when I reached the hotel but seriously it was such a pleasant experience after that LONG and TIRING drive from bangalore airport. highly recommended , best indian and oriental restaurants in city. a bit expemsive but i think its worth the money.

If you want a really relaxing experience in a setting of lush green gardens with excellent attentive and friendly service - this is the place! It was like stepping into a different world - yet its right in the middle of the city in close proximity to all that you require.
The food and service at the Blue Ginger Restaurant was superb.

Excellent ambience, courteous staff, quality food, central location.

Anshul at front desk and Farzana at the breakfast Room in particular are ever enthusiastic to cater to individual requirements of each guest.

Due to trees and gardens, there is simply no alternative to stay at Bangalore.

My sixth or seventh visit. Infact have been staying since it was Spencer's prior to takeover by Taj.
,

Room Tip: Take any ground floor room.

The rooms are fantastic with an old world charm. I stayed in the Presidential suite and got an upgrade, However, the regular rooms are very nice too. The lovely trees in the compound are stunning and there are many trees that are over 100 years old. The breakfast cafe is great and I would strongly recommend sitting by the lawn and having an early morning south Indian breakfast. The Asian restaurant is very nice too. This place has a charm of its own and is like an oasis in the middle of a busy city.

Room Tip: Stay in the cottages to get the experience of the old world charm.
