“Service is great with a few brickbats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

The hotel is clean, spacious, bright and fresh-smelling, although it was the time when Singapore experienced a really bad haze spell. Food buffet had wonderful choices of Malaysian and Chinese food. Although the attendants were too eager to get the used dishes.

The bathroom near the 2nd floor meeting room had this treshhold where I tripped often, as the lights turned on when I entered, so it was dark before the room brightens. I think that treshhold should be removed and the floors inside and outside the door way should be flush to prevent tripping.

The meeting room was comfortable although the air conditioning control did not have thermostat that you had to turn off the air conditioning machine totally if the room became too cold and turn it back on again when you start to feel warm.

Reception staff were really helpful, meals were cheap (Except breakfast).
But gym was really basic, could do with some improvement. Room service and cleaning were high quality, can't complain. Right next to a few bus stops so good transport links all round.

Staff provided vital information about the town and where to go. Would gladly stay there again.

Room Tip: Don't have breakfast here in the hotel, you will be charged around 30 SGD. Better to go eat else...

Dear Guest

Thank you for your review.

It's our pleasure to know that you have enjoyed your stay here.

We have purchased new equipment for the gym. Yes, the bus stops are just in front of our hotel and this makes it convenient for you to travel to many major malls and tourist attractions within our proximity.

Our staff were well trained to provide important travelling tips and information. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

The hotel has a beautiful exterior and convenient location, which is not far from the popular spots such as Orchard Road.

The reception staff were efficient but it was a lengthy check in process. Our room was quite small and lacked character and decor.

Breakfast presentation, service, and food quality were all below average & not what you expect from a four star hotel.

The brochure description was over-glossed - hotel/room did not match up to expectations at all. Room very disappointing, seemed smaller than average, not great bathroom either. Breakfast didn't come anywhere near good - ie: scrambled egg cold. Have stayed in cheaper hotels and enjoyed stay there far more. Would like to recommend, but in all honesty cannot.

The room is typical for 3 star hotel.
Just basic twin beds and small bathroom.
It was OK for an overnigt accomodation.
Worst nightmare was the breakfast buffet.
The foods were terrible. I think the scramble egg was made out of powder.
Horrible foods and coffee!!
Never go back if I can help!!!

At Singapore, even when the hostels are not cheap quality hotel provides good enough luxury and decent prices (you pay almost three times for what pay for a hostel private room for a star hotel). The selection of chinese food, especially sea food is mentionable. The buffet charges are also very reasonable (around 20-25SGD).
However, nearest MRT is at least a kilometre away; bus stop is just outside the hotel.

We would like to thank you for taking your time to write a review.

Accommodation at Quality Hotel Marlow is indeed valued for money. We strive to provide quality service at competitive pricing.

Hope that you had enjoyed our buffet. The spread is worth mentioning as you can enjoy many authentic asian delights at a reasonable price under one roof.

Yes, Quality Hotel Marlow is is located within close proximity to many major attractions and shopping malls in Singapore.

We hope to see you again in the future.

I stayed for 10 days in the hotel when I came to SG on business trip last July 2012. The hotel is clean, comfy, and got all you need. The buffet breakfast is quite okay for me being Asian, as they have mostly oriental dishes.There is a bar and restaurant in the ground floor with Filipino Band Entertainers. Some shops are walking distance. Overall the hotel is decent for me. Only hold back is that the Metro Train Station is not walking distance and the internet is not that fast.
