Great hotel in a great location!

Very large rooms. Great location in Clarke Quay. Nine of us dinned at the hotel's restaurant and half of us didn't enjoy our food. Staff are nice, but sometimes quite a wait at reception. Nice pool.

Good Place for Staycation

Convenient (right next to MRT), accessible to downtown malls, and next to Clarke Quay, with good modern comfort. The room is a little old,but to otherwise great place to stay for a few nights.

Ellenborough Restaurant was the only good thing

Toothbrush has to be requested. The baby cot did not come with baby shower gels. TWG tea series was nice. Coffee however was the quick fix packet type. Room has no view (maybe I bought relatively cheap through some websites). Restaurant dinner buffet at Ellenbourough was fantastic! One of the best I have ever had.

Brilliant Location, Excellent amenities.

ALL GOOD, only negative meals at restaurant including breakfast expensive, would've liked to try buffet dinner but at $ 60 pp. a bit to dear, local river restaurants cheaper and great variety, Have stayed in Singapore many times, and this was the best stay, Was not sure what to expect as I checked reviews before we booked, reviews were mixed, We found the Hotel had great staff, polite, helpful, room clean and huge, showing a bit of age tiles cracking in bathroom but not a big deal, fantastic pool, walking distance to transport, shops, river restaurants, Chinatown walking distance, ideal location, taxis from there to other locations cheap, got late check out as our flight was at 11:00 pm, 2pm check out, given use of shower facilities before we left, excellent bonus, would definitely recommend it and will have no hesitation to stay there again. Children would love it, especially the pool and slides.
