Booked this hotel as a staycation to celebrate our wedding ceremony, and we certainly enjoyed ourselves there.

The deluxe tower room is spacious and well equipped, though we would like to have more cable tv channels.

The staff even arranged for a complimentary cake to be delivered to our room for the occasion. What a nice gesture!

Room Tip: Choose deluxe tower rooms. You will not regret.

A weekend break tillChristmas in Singapore could have been very hectic and busy, so it was a nice surprise to have a quiet getaway at this colonial gem! It was like a secluded oasis within the madness of last minute shopping of the Orchard Road. A nice change too compared to other busy 5-star hotels around there. The rooms were larger than average and very homey too. Even the swimming pools are friendly, especially the smaller one with a small garden around it - my boys loved it, they had the pool to themselves most times.

What made our days was the hospitality extended by the staff. Started off with Lance at reception welcoming us checking-in well after midnight, extending us with a late check out, and promptly upgraded our room when we discovered that the first one suffered from noise-pollution from an event in the ballroom below. Wan, the concierge, had kindly escorted us throughout the room change, lugging our luggages to the other end of the hotel, even though his shift was to end at 1am. The next day, Irwan, the Senior Duty Manager also followed up with excellent service discovery, making us feel so welcome and well-taken-care of. Granted, there were shortfalls, like the noise-pollution in the first room and breakfast buffet spread needed a beef-up. All these were made up by all the staff's fantastic service (too many of them to be named here :)).

To our family, it was indeed a memorable stay. We have travelled extensively and stayed at too many of the top hotel chains, only a few have this level of personalised service, hospitality and care for our comfort, especially during such a busy Christmas weekend. We were so glad we had chosen this hotel (more for the historic characteristics) over those in Sentosa and others in Orchard, we will definitely return, with friends and families.

Oh! Forgot to mention, my hubby left his glasses there, I had called to asked just now, Sylvia got back to me almost promptly to inform that they have found them and will be posting the glasses soonest. ....Keep up the good work guys!

Room Tip: Rooms around the ballroom area can be noisy.

We stayed at the Goodwood for 3 nights in the week before Christmas. The service is fantastic - v professional. The head concierge took the time to stay behind at the end of his shift to help me check in for our flights.

The hotels is just off of Orchard Road and very central. A quiet oasis.

We chose the Goodwood because of its historic significance. The hotel itself is beautiful but we were disappointed with our room. The room smelt musty and damp and the bathroom is in need of a revamp. We were also unfortunate in that there was a building site opposite us - which in honesty didn't affect us much as we were out and about all day.

I mentioned the smell on the feedback from on checkout and had a reply by the time we reached Changi Airport informing me that the smell had been rectified?! I really don't know how that could have been achieved in such a short time if at all - am rather dubious about that one!

Would we stay there again? Probably not.

Arrived on Christmas Eve and found all hotel staff gearing up for Buffet Lunches on Xmas day. We were not informed that this was sold out and so our only option for food as Guests would have been room service. The bar was closed as this was turned into an overflow restaurant. The only option for a drink was to sit outside by a very unexciting pool area, have a drink delivered from inside. The staff paid no attention to us as they were busy setting up tables.
As a smoker, they offered us an ashtray by a fire escape at the back of the hotel.
Breakfast buffet was very average - unripe pineapple and melon as 2 of the 3 fruits available. Coffee not offered at the table and 1 out of 2 machines broken.
For a 5 star hotel, this was all very sad and wish I had gone to the Raffles.

Positive points - nice looking building, room was OK, not exceptional. But good location.

The pictures do not do this hotel justice. It is a well maintained colonial gem right on the cusp of Orchard Rd. The hotel itself and its gardens are beautiful. Rooms are larger than average and well appointed. Staff are helpful and courteous. I cannot wait to return!

I stayed over the weekend with two young children (1 baby and 1 toddler). It was a nice staycation especially it is just a few minutes walk to orchard road and we could view the Christmas lightings.

Service was excellent especially Megan who served us during breakfast and she noticed that my toddler girl's bottle was empty, offered to fill with either water or juice. Very detailed! The servers at the restaurant are friendly, ensuring that we are well taken care of. Good job!

Room was clean and they even brought us two cots, every requests were acted upon promptly. The staff are happy and make an effort to start small talk, even the uncle from concierge who brought us to our room.

I love the European style which is different from most modern hotels in Singapore, a gem hidden in the lush greenery. There are two swimming pools, check out the other one near the fitness centre, peaceful and well kept.

I will certainly visit again, recommended for families who want a short getaway:)

This is a great place to stay in Singapore. Centrally located and peaceful, in a city which is so busy.
The staff have been exceptional and could not be more helpful.
A grand old building from the colonial era with modern conveniences, great High Tea and two swimming pools.
