It's the first time such a beautiful place and I had a nice breakfast. Thanks for everything. I would go first. The waiters of the place I would go to were very nice. They did not disturb us at all. They gave us unlimited tea and coffee as a treat. Thanks for everything, the cooks were also very good hand taste. it was very nice

I received VIP right from the start - from the Asst Dir of Sales, Front Office check-in, butler service, tiffin room service, right down to housekeeping, I was very happy with the service and room and it would have been perfect if not for the mattresses - they were way too hard.

Stayed here at Christmas this year to celebrate our Golden Wedding. The rooms, building and environs are superlative. All facilities in our room were controlled by iPads in bedroom and lounge. The Courtyard suite was really amazing. We stayed here also in 2013, since then there have been some changes but the atmosphere and heritage remains. The staff were very well drilled and delivered their services immaculately. The staff on the Courtyard bar were a little more relaxed and easy to chat to. Swimming pool area was quiet staff there were very welcoming and friendly. Read less

Currently here at the hotel for a short stay. From the moment we arrived at Changi airport and were met and escorted to our (very comfortable) car we have experienced tremendous service. The hotel itself is absolutely breathtaking in its design, architecture and decoration. We had previously visited pre-restoration and can say that the essence of the hotel has not changed but has been brought up to date by the addition of technology and sympathetic restoration. The suite we have is spacious and equipped well with all amenities. The furnishings are exceptional from the furniture in the parlour, the spacious and very comfortable bed to the roll top bath in the double vanity bathroom. Today we were treated to the History of Raffles tour by Mr. Roslee, who not only was extremely knowledgeable but regaled us with some anecdotes and kept us entertained for the hour of the tour. Well worth booking for hotel guests. All the staff we have met have been extremely friendly, efficient and helpful and I cannot fault a single one of them. The covid19 safety measures are in place and being adhered to - including having to book in advance for meals (not breakfast) to ensure social distancing. When we arrived we had to isolate until the results of our PCR test were through. Breakfast was delivered to our room in a safe manner. Our experience here is one that we will never forget and treasure the memories we have made. Read less
