Only stayed here for 2 nights, but I wish it could of been longer. After days touring Singapore in the humidity walking into the hotel was like a Colonial Oasis. I loved the hotel it has such character and charm. Our rooms were large with such high ceilings and we had a huge terrace overlooking the lovely courtyard. Our Butlers Adie & another guy who's name I can't remember, were fantastic and even escorted us around the hotel when we couldn't find places. The Indian buffet in the Tiffin Room was exquisite, I've never tasted anything like it. There is something about the hotel that when you walk through the courtyards & past the fountains etc you can't help but imagine what it used to be like when it first opened over 100 years ago. The pool is also really cute and the pool attendants are waiter are very attentive coming around with fruit kebabs, blueberry smoothies, and water throughout the day. The only downside was the restaurant we chose one night for dinner Royal China, was very disappointing. It was nothing like the standard of the Royal China in England and it was empty, A local we were with says the Red Cherry in the Mandarin Oriental hotel is the best around if you are looking for chinese food. However the hotel is probably one of the best I have stayed in and only wish I could've stayed a little longer.
