stayed for 2 nights stopover. Shuttle busses are not allowed on these grounds, so you will have to get a taxi $38S. The taxi driver from the airport had never heard of this place. Finally got there, looks impressive from outside. Foyer is impressive, lots of marble. This is an old building, so go beyond the foyer and you can see its age, after all it is a rugby club.
The room was nice and roomy, very clean and comfortable. It overlooked the grounds. The shower has frosted glass walls, you cant exactly see through it, but it could be concerning if youre shy....lol
The poolside cafe is ordinary looking, functional, which is what you would expect in a rec club, BUT...... the meals are awesome. we were served almost immediately, and our food came very quickly and hot. the servings are huge and so cheap. there is a good variety of meals and drinks.
the breakfast was ordinary, but I think thats on par with most Asian countries.
City Hall mrt is 5 mins walk as is Raffles City shopping center. The MRT is extremely easy to use.
All in all we had a good stay. If you are not worried about having 5 star surroundings, this is a good choice at a reasonable price.
