The Goodwood Park Hotel had its share of history, owned by some wealthy Singaporeans, than used as the war-tribunal for the Japanese after the second world war.
And now a hotel which combines that “old” in new luxury.
I't s difficult to find ok hotels in Singapore in the lower price ends, even the expensive ones do not always live up to their price-tag, but the Goodwood certainly does.
A friendly staff (without being stiff), a big hotel with 2 swimming pools (one just at the lobby and a more intimate down in the hotel), some quite expensive restaurants (who aren't really worth the price - paid over 400 euro's for dinner with 4 and expected more from that) you can find much better restaurants in town.
Rooms are spacious, nicely furnished and have all the accommodation one wishes. Cleaning staff is more than helpful, breakfast is recommended (with tasty omelets at your wishes, Asian and common breakfast, ....).
They have bars and shops and off course the high tea, if you want to take part, make a reservation, every single afternoon I passed by it was packed. It looked tasty but since I wasn't free at tea time I never enjoyed the party.
Also nicely located, just off Orchard (not even 5 min. walk) so if you want to be in or out the crowds it's a matter of minutes
in short: this hotel has something to live up to, and does that perfect – one minor thing the hotel is old and at some places it shows, scratches at the walls, carpets looking as old as they are, … but the do their best, the power of the humidity and hot temperatures is really intense over here, they eat buildings a live - just look at the Ion Mall, build only a few years ago and already showing signs of decay
