This renowned 19th-century hotel exudes charm and has unparalleled service and luxury. The rooms are lavish, there are incredible dining options, and the rooftop pool is great.

      • Liked the courtyard views from rooms and beautiful old hotel. Friendly and professional staff, best bed. Followed by a Singapore sling in the long bar and food is excellent.

        Services not well maintained and drink prices very expensive.

        The food is expensive given that the same quality can be had in Singapore generally.

      • Ideal location and the staff and service was amazing, our whole stay was one of sheer luxury, the reception went well, everyone enjoyed and I was a relaxed bride. The suite was fabulous, the breakfast buffet was huge and fresh flowers and fruit were replenished daily. Dinner in evening was lovely , children enjoyed childrens menu.

        Too many visitors in certain areas of the hotel and the beds were too hard. Western food was especially poor.

      • Excellent location, excellent staff and beautiful hotel. The building is of course also spectacular, the service is spotless and friendly without being overwhelming, the suite itself is very neat and had a colonial feel to. A Singapore sling in in the long bar is a wonderful tradition, the complimentary fruit plate is large and as stated by another reviewer, the pool is also tranquil and calm.

        Business centre is inadequate for the modern traveller and a stay there is very expensive and not value for money.
