                                                  • Wonderful location and crew super, hotel facilities are good for business traveller, your reception staff are always pleasant and helpful. Room service is fast, the manager Peter Willis is truly superb and the pool is acceptable.

                                                    Not worth the money, no complimentary water and breakfast buffet not very big and crowded. Poor and limited choice of bread.

                                                  • Good location for shopping and a nice hotel. The staff were very helpful and room was decent.

                                                    Opposite the awful Orchard tower’s complex, the rate expensive and main lobby is not very impressive. Some of the tv channel are not very cleared and breakfast could be improved.

                                                  • Nice view from the balcony, presentable Hotel and not Bad for the Money. The lobby bar was good to relax in the staff were friendly, the reception was fantastic and the combination of 1 super king bed and single bed was perfect for a family of 5. The service at breakfast was disappointing.

                                                    Many reasons to stay", house keeping very slow and price quoted was not the price I paid.

                                                  • Location is good for city, the Orchard Parade is located on the edge of the Central Business District and hotel staff quick to upgrade room to suite due to hotel being booked out. The rates are very reasonable and the lobby floor has many exclusive shops, restaurants and a tour counter. All beds have soft duvets, wonderful, toilet paper of the very economy kind and the mini fridge doesn't work well.

                                                    The breakfast area is very tiny, the place is a 45 year old dump actually and the service is very very poor. Com i availed wired high speed internet and the gym is small and had no instructor/attendant I was there.

                                                    Frontdesk staff not exactly friendly and very busy.

                                                  • Good location, just basic stuff and staff were very helpful and professional. The rooms were nice.

                                                  • The good location along Orchard road and a nice stay. Staff – friendly and helpful, big room. Breakfast available from 6 am and pool lovely.

                                                  • Public areas are good and Orchard Parade Hotel is fine. Staff are very friendly and helpful, dont clean the room and told us that we choose the status Dont distirb.

                                                    Dislikes; service wasn't that great, limited choice of television channels and breakfast very poor menu.
