We stayed at this iconic hotel on the way back from Australia as part of our honeymoon. It was booked as part of our honeymoon plans. On arrival we had a fantastic room overlooking the courtyard. There were flowers in the bedroom and placed on the bed. We were given a Singapore Gin sling shortly after arrival.
The room was lovely, and definitely not tired, as some top hotels can be.
The staff were extremely helpful, pleasant and friendly. In fact if I had a complaint at all, I felt that sometimes they were over helpful. They made us feel extremely important, and as we are just normal people in the real world, it was sometimes uncomfortable. We both loved the Tiffin room, and used this mainly as our restaurant. The food was excellent, not expensive and superbly presented. The Long Bar was Great!! If you are in the real world you will love it! If however you have disappeared up your own ar*e, you probably won't. It is busy, buzzing with a great atmosphere.
The rest of the Hotel is lovely. It is our intention to return and see the Singapore Grand Prix, sometime in the future. It's on our bucket list.
Can't say enough about this place.....Enjoy it!
