What a welcoming place this is to stay in. Friendly helpful staff everywhere. Rooms are adequate with hot water, water you can drink from the tap, fresh towels and tea and coffee making facilities. Location is superb, near City Hall MRT on the red or green line and Esplanade on the Circle line. The trains are very efficient and cheap to use. Breakfast was both Asian and Western as was the buffet dinner we had one night. The use of the club facilities was amazing. Our Singaporean friends couldn't believe we were staying in this prestigious place.

Room Tip: Rooms away from reception as near there you get the reception noise.

We booked our room on booking.com.
We had booked for 4 days and to our delight, on arrival, our room was upgraded.
The food tasted great and was very reasonably priced along with great friendly service throughout our whole stay. The smorgasbord breakfast was served in the pool café, not to rooms. We enjoyed time in the bar with the band and met great people when we watched the bowling. Over the road you have access to the MRT(underground rail system), shopping centre, restaurants,cafes and bus pick up for the zoo. We were in walking distance to Raffles, the river (night river cruise) and Glutton Bay(food stalls). Our stay felt like we were staying with family, everyone was so friendly and helpful and interested in interacting and making sure our stay was great.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the fields at the back are really quiet.

Interesting place - when we arrived, we were heading to the reception, but the doorman guided us to the lift and told us that the actual reception is on the 3rd floor. Well, there it is was - a little bit more modest than downstairs. The personnel behind the desk was very polite and helpful, and also explained the local dress code and other rules to us.

The room (328) was small. With our two large suitcases (for our three week journey) we were missing room. The three steps from floor level to bathroom level were a surprise. Luckily, we still have pretty healthy feet.

The bathroom was also smallish. In the roof of shower area there were dark areas, which hopefully still were only moisture, not mold. The almost transparent wall materiel of the bathroom was a kind of surprise at the beginning

We had asked for a room on the Padang side, but we did not get one. Luckily the traffic noise was not too disturbing for us.

Situation of SRC is good - you can easily reach City Hall MRT, Flyer, Raffles area or Suntec to start your hop-on-hop-off.

Breakfast had several different tasty varieties every morning and you also had a possibility to order an omelette of your choice.

One extra bonus was that we could, on the afternoon of our departure, take a shower (and even visit the sauna) before we left the Residence.

I visit Singapore after 7years. Alot of changes was done in this country. I booked for a standard room in this hotel trough Booking.com. When I was there with my wife, we give a warm greeting by the receptionist. The check in process was very smooth. And they surprise us with free upgrade to the presidential suite.
The room was clean and comfortable. Clean bathroom. The room setup was Morden eventhoug it looks classic from outside. The location was very strategic. Walking distance to the City Hall MRT station, Raffles City Shopping Mall.
There was a friendly receptionist guide us to reach the underpass which leads us to the City Hall MRT station.
Sure will recommend to others.

This is a nice hotel and a shopping mall Raffles located just across the road, which has an Indian restaurant a bit expensive one and a better option of an Indian joint in the food court. They have got a good swimming pool, and a nice buffet breakfast. It is accessible by metro directly from the airport except one interchange. It is just few stops away from Little India (with one interchange) and a few stops from the Marina Bay.

Stayed @ the Singapore Recreation Club 1 night with my girlfreind.
Location I must say is very good, really close to CityHall. Overall experience was good, nice and big clean rooms and a big nice indoor swimming pool.
The hotel has a very limited number of rooms.
Woud recommended this place.

When you stay here you gain access to the facilities enjoyed by members of the Singapore Recreation Club. Not sure that it is a place for children.
It is a very pleasant, centrally located small (35 rooms?) about a block from Raffles. Has a fascinating multicultural menu. Great for those who are adventurous but not so good if you expect the same menu what ever continent you are on. The Sea coconut and aloe vera dessert was delicious! The lighting is low. Too low if you want to work, but pleasant. Pool is an underground grotto and the licensed bistro overhangs it. It is a club full of history. Guests also get access to the membership-only gambling and entertainment. Finally cab driver did not recognise 'B Connaught' address. It seems to be on Stamford.
Loved our stay here.
