“Great hotel but not the view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

Loved this hotel and deluxe room (no 2) but not the view. I requested a city view and got a view of the roof below with the dirty old air conditioning units and apartment blocks at the back. That is not a city view, even if the person I complained to says it was! This room should be cheaper as there is no nice view at all.
A very quiet room.
Showering in the bath with a hand held shower is not ideal.
We didn't have breakfast as it was too expensive, but did have a nice meal at the Chinese restaurant and the high tea looked as good as the one we had at the Raffles hotel and a lot cheaper.
Staff are lovely and very helpful.
Came back in the afternoon one day and our room hadn't been done; and then someone came to do it while we were in the room which was unusual.
Not far from the MRT Orchard road but when you are tired it is a long walk.

Room Tip: Don't choose city view.

We stayed at this delightful old world hotel recently and could not recommend it more highly. Magnificent surrounds including pools and gardens all a stone's throw from Orchard Road.. Breakfast every day was perfect and the Staff could not have been more helpful or attentive. Small problem with a noisy neighbor was resolved immediately by upgrading us to an even larger pool view suite opening onto the Balinese pool. It felt like we were at a beach resort on a tropical island not the center of Singapore. Mark and Iriwan made our stay a delight.
We have been to Singapore three times, its a wonderful place to visit and Goodwood Park is the best hotel in Singapore because of its location, staff and facilities. We recommend it to all our friends and wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: Pool view rooms are the best.

We stayed here for 7 nights, the hotel itself was beautiful, breath taking and huge in size!....make sure you get a room in the main hotel as there are many different parts to it which may not be as nice as the main part. The rooms overall were very nice and well kept, staff were very friendly and helpful in assisting with any needs and with local tourist information. One thing which i haven't found in other hotels is that you can request more pillows if you don't find the ones you have comfortable. The location of this hotel is great its very central to everything as it is just off orchard road so its about 5 min walk to the orchard MRT. I would definitely stay again here it was well worth it and i highly recommend it. Definitely one of the best hotels i have stayed in!

Room Tip: Rooms in the main hotel are the best, also try to get ones with a balcony

I have stayed with Goodwood Park Hotel twice. First for my husband's business trip (Parkland Split Level), second was for my own pleasure (Deluxe Room). Both times were superb!! Staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive. It's located just off Orchard Road, walking distance about 10 minutes (maybe?). The restaurant there was good as well:D love the durian crepe, IT'S DELISH! definitely will stay with them again! :D

In a city which tears down skyscrapers after only a few years, to replace then with something even bigger and shinier, it's astonishing that the Goodwood Park seems so unchanged after so many years (although a very discreet large annex has been quietly added). If it weren't owned by a Chinese billionaire who loves it as it is, it would have disappeared into a sea of concrete long since. It manages to attract superb staff and maintain extremely high standards in all respects.

A great old and beautiful colonial hotel that evokes the past of Singapore.The staff are gracious, friendly and helpful. The hotel is well located just off the Orchard Road shopping district and far enough to be quiet. The breakfast and high tea is fairly good. We would stay there again.

We were impressed by everything at the hotel - the beds, bathrooms and the beautifully preserved heritage building. The pools are very nice and one of them even has a proper deep end - very rare in Singapore. Possibly the best location in town, fabulous dining at Min Jiang restaurant and the afternoon tea in the lobby is excellent value - it's a buffet, so you certainly get your money's worth.
The only downside was the room service - very ordinary food (not bad, just not good) which is odd considering the quality of the restaurants. I recommend dining out of the room. The breakfast in the cafe wasn't the best value either - I recommend waiting till L'espresso opens.
