The rooms are very 80s - looked very tired. But it was spacious. The beds were good and provided good sleep. The bathroom was good in a sense that the shower stall was separated from the bathtub.

The rooms are very 80s - looked very tired. But it was spacious. The beds were good and provided good sleep. The bathroom was good in a sense that the shower stall was separated from the bathtub. As for toiletries, the room was stocked with the usual shower foam / shampoo / body lotion / dental kits / towels and hair dryer. However, the room was not in the best of state – the tile by the bathtub was falling off, the soundproofing of the room was not good, I was only at level 13 in a building of 30 storeys, the wallpapers were peeling off etc. Grand Copthorne Waterfront Executive Club Lounge: I came for the Club lounge, and it did not disappoint. The high ceiling lounge looked out to the Central Business District, which was awe-inspiring, day and night, especially with its full-length floor-to-ceiling windows. Afternoon Tea was provided with an assortment of sandwich, mini muffins, cakes and cookies. Nothing fancy, but enough finger food to go with the Cappuccino while you soak in the view right after checking into your room. Happy Hour starting from 6pm was not meant to be dinners for customers, though there was plenty of hot food and dessert to choose from. The sushi platter was eye catching enough, though those who liked fried food will be satisfied with the calamari rings and croquettes. There were also mini pizzas (only to try if you don’t like the other food) and salad. Breakfast at Executive Club Lounge: Breakfast was stocked with local and international offerings. There was Nasi Lemak (complete with green-dyed rice), dim sum (Siew Mai with plenty of meat and mushroom and fragrant Tao Sar Bao (Bun with Bean Paste)), fried fish fillet, mini pratas (complete with vegetarian curry) and hash brown. One can also order a la carte items like sunny side up, Eggs Benedict (burger) and French Toast. Every time I visit the lounge, I was queried by the staff for my room number. This is the first executive lounge that had to verify my identity every single time I visited. Shrugz. p/s: I stayed here back in early 2019, only now that I have the time to upload a review, but TripAdvisor can only allow me to date this review back till Jul 2019. Read less

The service exceeded expectations. Our manager, Serene, always remained contactable on WhatsApp for our last-minute queries. She also -allowed time and room for changes in our contract to suit our needs and wants.   Food was delectable. The-menus offered were good and the chef was receptive to food tasting reviews and feedback was taken into consideration. There were also novel items which were of good quality like the cheesecake dessert.   Our venue was spectacular. The Grand Ballroom decoration was extravagant with fairy lights and street lights. The table décor choices all turned out very beautiful and the smoke machines turned out fine   Thank you making our wedding a wonderful and memorable one. Read less

We liked our stay at Grand Copthorne and will come back again. Rooms facing river front, higher floors are nice : faces east and you get sun in your room : bright feeling. Rooms are large and well appointed , comfortable stay. Restaurants are in walking distance along the river front . You have choice of Italian, Diners, Iranian , Indian and local food options. Compared to regular Food Courts in Singapore ( available normally in every 1 KM), the prices in these restaurants could be much higher ( 4 times atleast or more). Nearby mall ( only one in walking distance) can help you with your daily supplies if you intend to stay longer ( we liked the packed Tiramisu from the cold store at the nearby mall). Hotel bus shuttle can take you the daily route covering few malls and shopping destinations. The laundromat ( free for all) at the hotel is a big help ( normally not there in most hotels ). Laundry services otherwise can get expensive. Read less

The hotel staff could not have been more helpful in particularly we want to give our sincere thanks to Uzair Yaacob, who made us feel so welcome, he was friendly and kind, and he also gave us great tips on top spots to visit in Singapore. The hotel was in a great location within walking distance of Robinson Quay, where there are lots of restaurants and bars and around a 15 minute walk to Clarkes Quay. Although there were a lot of attractions closed and overall Singapore was very quiet, we enjoyed our stay here and would definitely like to visit the hotel again when things return to normal thanks to the friendliness and kindness of Uzair, he is a credit to the hotel.
