We stayed at Raffles for 5 nights in October and as the most expensive accommodation we pre-booked this was to be the 'luxury stay' of our trip. Far from it. Our apartment on the 4th floor was dark, dated and definitely not 4.5 star. The carpet had dirty marks and the back of the hideous bedspread had an offputting yellow stain. It joined the plastic flowers and plants in the wardrobe during our stay! The second bedroom with two singles was more suitable for children and both bathrooms had no natural light and were poorly lit. There were marks on paintwork and the front door. Certainly the apartment was in need of an upgrade in both decor and furnishings. There was a nice view of the sea from the balcony and the property is very well located close to esplanade restaurants and the beach, but traffic and street noise were very noticeable at night. The swimming pool and spa were quite small and the spa empty when we saw it. There were no other facilities. A suitable property for families with children perhaps, but not the place for discerning travellers expecting 4-star plus standards.
