Went to the Tower Gardens and will go back there for a more in-depth tour on way home next year. truly magical place.
Of course we had the obligatory Singapore Sling in the courtyard bar at the famous Raffles Hotel. (Only one each cause it would take the GNP of a small nation to afford ...

Our first morning was a rather lazy one, for the boys at least. I rose early to write my blog but the boys managed a bit of a sleep in. We then had a swim before heading to breakfast and there was a bit of pool envy here as there wasn't a single leaf in the Pan Pacific's pool!

The breakfast at this hotel was ...

First stop after Brisbane, as usually lovely and clean. We took a taxi with our neighbours Clem and Dawn to Orchard Rd and Plaza. Had a good look around shops including M&S, but did't buy anything. after a few hours we then took another taxi to Marina Bay Sands Hotel, three towers with a roof garden and pool ...

A great holiday, with great company to a fantastic city. But it is always wonderful to get home and smell the gum trees and enjoy our beautiful ...

... attended the service at Church A, but then were welcomed into the Coffee & Doughnut Breakfast of Church B. (Whoops!) We met some cool locals from Church B; they took us out to lunch and even went with us to the beach the next day! It was so much fun to have friends visit, although tough to see them go. But after we tried eating pig intestine and pig skin together - I think we can stomach ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Goodwood Park Hotel Singapore

    Goodwood Park is a 'has been'

    from

    Often in Singapore and use city as a stopping of point to visit friends in SE Asia. Always wanted to stay at Goodwood Park as I liked looks and exterior charm, but never got around to staying until last week. Friendly check in, in what was a very drab and very dull lobby, Escorted to room, which was hot, dirty carpet, old and outdated furniture, bed was mattress on a wood platform. It is the only hotel where I ever did a bed bug check (none) Not even one comfortable chair in room and no desk chair, just a stool. Bathroom had only one extra small bar of soap; however, very clean. After 20 minutes room still hot and ready to change hotels we discovered reason for heat as AC filter completely covered by dirt. We went to night manager and said change us or we leave. We were then moved to a small suite, much better, with two baths, but still not great, but okay for our 3 night stay. This a 'grand lady" of a hotel with a great history but needs to be closed and given a complete face lift. It seems they have not made any improvements on inside in years. Even where they have done touch up paint and otherwork it looks if applied by 10 year old. The breakfast buffet was so bad did not dare try other food. All this is so sad as it could be a great hotel considering the size of the grounds and hotel location. The grounds seemed to be in okay condition, but not the tropical stunning beauty they could and should be. This is a "has been" hotel, read it's history, take a brief look around, dream of what it might be but stay somewhere else.

    The Shoppers Oasis

    from

    Great Place! We stayed for 2 nights and booked a junior suite. It wasn't the largest suite I have ever stayed in, but still very nice and comftable. we had no views. No TV to watch from bed which was a downer (especially as the kids were asleep in the longue area!). The bathrooms were FABULOUS. Actually these could have been much smaller to allow for bigger rooms.

    in room safe did not work. Staff could not get it to work either.

    The Mayfair(?) pool was just wonderful. Uncrowded and definately an oasis in Singapore. We only ate breakfast at the hotel, which was buffet and just great, mixture of western and asian which was great.

    Really good location to Orchard Road, and the bell boys were great at handing out umbrellas to use in the rain!

    Best Place in Town

    from

    I recently stayed at the Goodwood Park Hotel and it was FABOLOUS! The staff is very friendly and helpful. There was no single person that did not greet and smile at me during my stay.

    Highlights:

    I tried the Min Jiang Restaurant which offers a fantastic modern Asian Cuisine. The 8 course lunch menue was a firework of delicious small dishes and a culinary travel through Asia - a true MUST HAVE!!!

    Also the pool is marvellous. Actually they have two swimming pools. One to show of directly in front of the terrasse and one (my favourite one) in a little palm tree garden. Absolutely romantic in the evening.

    What I liked was especially the cosy athmosphere and the PERFECT location in walking distance to Orchard road (1min)

    Sad state of affairs

    from

    I last stayed at this picturesque and well located hotel in the early 1990s. I liked it a lot then as it had a cozy feel to it and because of its good location. This time, I was very sad to see the state of affairs. While the lobby and some of the public areas have seen an upgrade, the room I stayed in was exactly the same as it was 15 years ago. Old furniture, musty smell, sagging mattress and dirty carpet. The blanket smelled bad so I asked housekeeping for a duvet, but was told that the hotel does not have any. I wound up asking a business associate in Singapore to bring me one from his house.

    My Favotite...

    from

    I really enjoyed my stay at the Good Wood Park... excellent service... nice lobby... nice restaurant and a luxurious colonial style on everything.

    I reccomend you to book one of the Parklane Suite... you'll feel like in your home... with the same price of a filthy european 3 stars Hotel.

    Completely rennovated Goodwood

    from

    We stayed at the Goodwood the last 3 nights of our trip in Asia with our 6yr old daughter. I was a bit nervous on how they'd treat families but they were all extremely helpful. We were given a poolside room, which is great when you have kids, the double room had a living area with a good sofabed / TV you could separate off with screens (perhaps for business travellers). As the hotel had just been rennovated (at least this part was) everything was squeaky clean and very modern and quite stark. IMHO too modern - we had trouble trying to turn off/on the lights/TV/etc using the control panel - what's wrong with light switches? Beautiful bathroom, great staff and great location, just off Orchard Road, but still very quiet. AND we got a great deal by booking early!

    Below expectations

    from

    We picked the Goodwood Park hotel based on the fact that it looks great from the outside, the dim sum restaurant is top rated, and people think of it highly. We expected it to be a lovely heritage hotel, with beautiful large rooms.

    Mixed feelings

    from

    I booked the hotel for my last stay in Singapore and made the choice mostly because of the nice layout and location.

    A favourite - or THE favourite?

    from

    If, like, me, you enjoy quiet understatement along with hedonistic levels of comfort and service that is entirely unseen until you want attention - at which time it appears by magic, the Goodwood Park might be your favourite too.
