Stayed here for two nights on our way to Australia.
From the time you arrive to the time you leave you are know you are in one of the best places ever.
A beautiful hotel with an atmosphere of tranquility and calm.
I was quite surprised when I arrived to realise just how big this place is with all the shops and eateries and did initially worry that it would be noisy, but the rooms are away from the busy shopping areas and very quiet.
You are addressed by name as soon as you mention your room number and once they know who you are you are greeted like an old friend, it's lovely.
We of course had a Singapore sling in the Long Bar, where they reserve tables especially for guests of the hotel as it does get busy, wonderful. A special mention of Jorge who was very friendly and helpful, and who gave us a small momento to remember the place by.
Great staff, alway a smile and very friendly and helpful.
We ate in the Tiffin room one evening at the curry buffet, which although a little pricey for a curry (well it is Raffles) was very good with a lot of dishes to try, ( this coming from a person who eats curry a lot living in the center of the uk).My travel agent had told the hotel that I was allergic to all shellfish, so I didn't even have to tell the restaurant they already knew, they came and said as soon as I sat down that they knew of my allergy and which dishes I could and couldn't eat, wonderful.
Whenever I write these reviews I always try to be balanced and provide helpful criticism but for the first time find nothing to criticise.
Our room needless to say was beautiful and the bed very comfortable, the shower was probably the most powerful I have ever come across.
I could go on forever praising this place.
Really wish I could have stayed longer.
