We spent 4 nights in the lovely hotel in Feb 2013. On arrival, the hotel didn't appear to be anything special although it was very well located close to the temples and to the town centre with a lovely garden across the road BUT from check-in I quickly realised the Raffles experience was going exceed our expectation. The staff were amazing, the check-in process was personalised and relaxing and when we got to our room through the quirky old-world elevator we were pleasantly surprised at the large size of the room and the sweet little balcony that opened out to the courtyard.
Breakfast each morning was an absolute delight with so many choices it was hard to stop. Champagne became a welcome habit and the eggs cooked-to-order were delicious.
The pool area and the pool side dining were a highlight of our trip with reasonable prices and a very large relaxing pool.
At the conclusion of our stay, we realised we has misjudged this grand old hotel. The experience is not in the walls but in the history and feel of this majestic hotel. We would definitely go back
