Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

High tea experience was good. One of the best high tea experiences I have so far in SG. Staff so professional and friendly

Nice bunch of little shops which are part of the original Raffles Hotel. There is an additional shop called Raffles Boutique which has lots of interesting "Raffles" type items such as slippers and tea boxes

This is for the shopping arcade, not for the hotel nor long bar like many reviews here

Many longstanding stores here like Leica and Hour glass, but many others have come and gone. Not an easy place to do business since it’s in the hotel and foot traffic is lower

Experienced afternoon tea at Raffles Hotel which is a must. The grandeur and spender and decadence of the hotel was amazing.

The tea arrived with a choice of specialty teas with your array of sandwiches, cakes and scones all of which was impeccable.

So impressive.

My wife was keen to sample the original Singapore Sling cocktail. You certainly pay for the experience at $38 each. However my wife certainly had no problem enjoying & savouring it. We chose to sit outside at Raffles Terrace as the queue for The Long Bar was quite a wait and no problem being shown to a table straight away outside. Service was great and given a large bowl of monkey nuts to enjoy also. Definitely worth an explore of the hotel to take in the splendor.

Beautiful colonial architecture here. One of the few great buildings left like this design. There is a high-end selection of boutique stores to check out. Way too expensive for my tastes but I am glad to have experienced this oasis in the heart of the city.

We queued for about 15 minutes to get into the Long Bar for a Singapore Sling. It was so good we had two. Not a cheap option at 37 Singapore dollars plus service charge and some other charge, but it was worth it. Each table has a sack cloth bag of peanuts which you are encouraged to shell and enjoy with your SS throwing the shells on the floor .... only place in Singapore you can legally litter! Would we go back .....most definitely!!!!

…even if you don’t end up buying anything. It’s architecturally stunning all around. The Raffles Boutique in particular is great for buying gifts and there are lots of other (mostly absurdly expensive) shops to look at too. Mostly though, it’s about enjoying the amazing buildings of the extended hotel complex.

Everything about the hotel was perfect. The suite was beautiful and in keeping with the hotels era. The butler service was very good, the staff through out the hotel were attentive, friendly, polite and helpful. The bed comfortable, a pillow menu allowing for a change if desired. An elegant bathroom. Comfortable chairs and a table on the balcony to look at the garden, was very peaceful. Breakfast in the Tiffin Room was extensive and encompassing both eastern and western food, served promptly in lovely surroundings. Altogether a perfect stay for our 50th wedding anniversary. All the little extras to help us celebrate were much appreciated. The pool area was also a popular spot with us, reminiscent of a by gone era.

Having a short time in Singapore one place we had to vist was Raffles hotel. We went in the morning, yes it is an iconic hotel but if you are not a guest there you can only drink in the bar adjoning next door which I thought was little strange. I was approached by an official of the hotel and after saying I would like to take some photos inside I was pleasantly suprised to be told " please you are welcom" but still no drink inside .....
