The Goodwood Park doesn't have all the frills that some of the big chains do, however if you want something different, historical and in a great location, give it a try.
My first impression of the room was that it smelled damp. However it was very clean, and had all the basic amenities. It was on the 2nd floor overlooking the main pool, and the restaurants, so always something to look at. They could do with a good renovation though! Bed was comfortable.
The breakfasts were delicious!
The location was fantastic! as soon as we arrived, our first time in Singapore, we strolled out onto the street, and went next door to find some cheap food in the bottom floor of the shops (a student hang out apparently). And just a 5 minutes stroll down to Orchard Rd (ION shopping centre is amazing!) and to the underground trains.
The staff are all ultra helpful and efficient.
Internet access was very expensive.. it was cheaper to connect on our mobile phones via global roaming than use the Hotel's! this is the worst aspect. And the TV channels were fairly limited.
Our friends stayed at the Novotel.. which was a very nice hotel, great views.. but once inside you could be inside any hotel anywhere..a bit impersonal. The amenities were a bit fancier. However the location was fairly dead in the evening.. a long walk to anything.. I was alone a lot of the time, and so just had to stroll out of the Goodwood Park hotel to be in the thick of people and action, food and shops.. whereas at the Novotel, I would have felt uncomfortable walking around alone in the evening, as it was fairly dead, and a long walk from any train stop.
There were quite a few weddings on, being such an historical and picturesque hotel, which was lovely to watch.
