We always promised ourselves we would go when my husband retired, he lived there as a boy, his Father was in the RAF and years before a Japanese prisoner of war at Changi. The hotel was a little haven of colonial history, a great experience and very special as we celebrated 40 years together. The hotel was spotless and any problems encounterd dealt with quickly and professionally. The long bar is a must if you don't want a Singpore Sling there are many more options and the tradition of throwing peanut shells on the floor a first! All in all it was a holiday of a life time and on off the buckt list.
