It is a nice place to relax and enjoy the sea sports. However, do not hold too high expectations especially on the standards of the hotel. It is a simple hotel without much luxury to talk about. The service of the staffs are good but you will have to speak in SIMPLE ENGLISH. Anyway they used to provide bedroom slippers for free, now they are charging SGD5 for each pair. Disappointing..what will they start charging separately next? The bed? The TV? The water boiler? Or the basin....? The bowling balls are dirty and I suggest that you bring a pair of gloves and I really mean DIRTY! The table tennis is of reasonable standard. The pool table cloth has a hole and the table is also VERY DIRTY~! I wonder if they service their amenities. In addition, their gym is just for SHOW. All their equipment are NOT WORKING especially those electronic ones and yet they kept the doors open for public use. *sigh* Like other reviews, the pool looks great but I haven't got the chance to try because I can't swim. And, the basketball court is small. I think it is for the primary school kids to play. So adults please take note of it. The billiard/snooker room STINKS and the air is stale. Visit it if you don't believe me but do bring or wear a mask. The Japanese restaurant inside Harris is ok. The foods are edible and the portions are also reasonable. However, the taste is another issue and the sashimi my friend had ordered are FROZEN. *hahaha* Breakfast is satisfactory but the variety is limited. For people who are choosy, I suggest you to bring your own can food. The hotel provides games such as poker cards, monopoly, mahjong and scrabble, however, some of them comes with a cost and there is only one set of mahjong available at any one time. The rooms are not carpeted therefore you have to bring your ownbedroom slippers if you are particular. Else, be prepared to spend $5 on the Harris Slippers like I mentioned above. The toilets are ok considering that I am a person who can't stand dirt. There are a variety of cable channels available for those couch potatoes to watch.
