We arrived fairly late in the evening and caught a taxi to the residence (the airport shuttles do not run to residences or B&Bs - only hotels). The house is up near the Botanical Gardens in a very pleasant residential area about 20 minutes walk from the western end of Orchard Road.
We were greeted by the owner who was very friendly and helpful with answering questions regarding location etc. The lobby is very big and spacious and nicely furnished which gives a lovely first impression. Leading off this area is the dining room and also a covered outside terrace where guests can also take breakfast. Downstairs is a lovely indoor pool for guests use (however the area around the pool seem to be a bit of a storage area with boxes and spare furniture stacked about).
Our room - The Oriental Pearl Suite - was very spacious and nicely furnished with a four poster bed (with another one which we weren't expecting - however, this would be a good family room). The bathroom had a lovely rain shower and guest toiletries provided. Whilst our room was perfectly comofable the photos on the website do portray a VERY luxurious view of the rooms.
A personal breakfast menu is provided every day for guests to choose from a good selection of western and Asian foods on a tick box system (ie, egss, pancakes, noodles, fruit etc). This sometimes ended up with some strange combinations on one plate but overall the breakfasts were good.
All in all a lovely small B&B hidden away in the vast hotel saturated metropolis of Singapore. Recommended.
