The Waverly Hotel & Residences draws its inspiration from the rich heritage of Whitefield, which is often forgotten in the midst of the area’s transformation into the Silicon Valley of India. The Waverly pays tribute to Whitefield’s historical “British” culture through a ‘colonial meets contemporary’ concept.

The Whitefield we know today began in 1882 when as a grand gesture, Charmaraja Wodeyar, the then Maharaja of Mysore granted 3,900 acres towards the creation of a settlement for the Anglo-Indian community of the area. As such  Whitefield was born, named after David White who conceptualized the idea of this settlement and also resided here. Over time, Whitefield developed into a homely Anglo-Indian village that attracted people from Bangalore City and those who were a part of the historic Kolar Gold Fields. It was one of the very few formally planned Anglo-Indian settlements in India, boasting of a relaxing lifestyle, colonial style architecture  quaint bungalows  sprawling orchards and farms as well as delightfully named cottages.

In 1896  a young British army officer by the name of Winston Churchill arrived in Bangalore and, as narrated by the ex-prime minister himself  fell in love with the weather  flowers and butterflies the city had to offer. In fact  the historic Bangalore Club proudly claims this butterfly obsessed officer still owes the club 13 Rupees from an unpaid bill during one of his visits. The young Lieutenant was a frequent visitor of the Waverly Inn at Whitefield  where he is believed to have stayed on occasion. Rumour has it that during his visits, Churchill courted Rose Hamilton, the daughter of James Hamilton, who was the then owner of the Inn. The Waverly Inn still stands today  though it is now a private residence.

The history of Whitefield and its surrounding areas are imbibed in the The Waverly Hotel & Residences through our 54 spacious rooms  modern British pub  Hotel Veranda, and The Living Room  providing a modern experience with historical notes Churchill would have appreciated. The Waverly Hotel & Residences experience can be summed up as old world charm in a modern .
