We escaped the afternoon heat in the legendary Long Bar for a couple of classic cocktails. The kids enjoyed the non-alcoholic ones and the tasty snacks and ‘sacks’ of complimentary nuts. This is a must do on your Singaporean itinerary as the bar oozes character and the surrounding building is full of charm and appeal. Thanks for the vote if... More

Would have loved to have stayed at Raffles but we were staying at another hotel and were on a tour provided by that hotel. However, a stop-off at Raffles was part of the itinerary and gave us the opportunity to partake of a world famous 'Singapore Sling' whereupon I decided I had to have 'just one more'!! The place has... More

The only place to have a Singapore Sling - it's a must do. The whole experience is amazing - like stepping back in time.

So glad it never changes. Go to the Courtyard for a seat during the day, the Billiard room for a quiet drink or the main bar for the Singapore Sling and listen to the fabulous live band that plays there. It never disappoints.

Like everyone else, we ordered a Singapore Sling at the Long Bar and I have to say it was good, but tasted a bit like it had been pre-made and sourced from a large batch. I wouldn’t blame them if they did this however, for the Singapore Sling is the drink that EVERYONE orders (to celebrate the fact that it... More

We spent New Year's Eve 2013 here with friends sipping cocktails in this most beautiful building with the ambience of days gone past. This hotel is an absolute must see if you're in Singapore.

We visited the raffles long bar two days in a row because the food was excellent. The sliders are definitely worth trying. The food, cocktails and history of raffles created a perfect atmosphere. Whether you're visiting for a couple of days or a few weeks you need to come here!

Worth having a meal there and a look around. One of the original hotels in Singapore. Food and service is great. Easy access to the Raffles to see some history

We returned for High Tea in the Tiffen Room for the first time in three years and were a bit disappointed. Firstly, they are short-staffed - one person was assigned to our room of twenty tables. He did his best to keep up and continually apologized every time he came around. The food was ok - not the quality we... More

Beautiful surroundings (although chilly with ac so be prepared). Fabulous curry buffet including chefs specials bought to your table - tasty lamb with rum and vinegar which was wonderful. Service excellent. Overall a highly recommended experience in Singapore.
