Having booked afternoon tea we were kept waiting in a long line outside well after the time of our booking. The decor and ambiance was excellent but the quality of the service and the tea was poor. When a pot of tea eventually arrived it was so weak it was tasteless, it was sent back and replaced by a pot... More

Loved this - a throwback to a bygone era- staff great , afternoon tea wonderful and plentiful-quite expensive but lovely The hotel itself is well worth a look ,evocative of bygone times. You could imagine titled ladies in the 1920's enjoying their tea and listening to someone playing the harp

From stepping on to the red carpet outside we were treated like royalty. The staff were very well trained and predicted every possible need that we had. The suite that we stayed in was authentic yet modern filled with luxury toiletries. The selection at breakfast was truly amazing with options of European and Asian foods. The reason this is not...

Growing up in an era that raffles was taught as historyI always wanted to visit Singapore and the hotel, being able to actually stay in it was unbelievable.

Benefiting from being build in an era when space in Singapore was not at as much of premium as today, Raffles is 3 storeys high with lovely gardens reserved for hotel guests.

Decided to treat myself to a belated birthday at Raffles for afternoon tea with champagne. Expensive? A little. Decadent? Yes! Worth it? Totally.
