“Good location, excellent facilities”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

It is situated in the heart of Singapore, within walking distance of City Hall MRT and Raffles City mall. As it is essential a club, the hotel has all the requisite facilities ie a swimming pool, fitness centre and spa. Although the breakfast is pretty basic, there are lot of eateries within walking distance of the hotel. In general good value for money.

We were delighted with our stay at the Residence. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room clean and comfortable and the food really nice. This is a place for travellers who want something quirky. A delightful chance to stay in a functioning and popular recreation club- yes there is a chlorine smell in the basement cafe- because it's next to a pool! We were able to leave our bags in the lobby on the day of check out and later have a shower before heading to the airport. A place of charm and refreshingly different.

Good location and nice rooms. Staff were helpful and friendly. Across the road from a big shopping centre and short walk to most tourist attractions. 25 singapore dollars it cost for a cab from the airport.

This hotel has a perfect location. Almost near everything in Singapore.
you can walk to Marina Bay Sands hotel. Moreover, the raffles city is just 2 min walking from this hotel and it has a very nice shopping mall as well as a metro station.
The only thing I didn’t like is the breakfast.

I recently stayed at the SRC for 6 nights. I found the staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. The facilities were excellent and the breakfast (which was included in the tariff) was satisfactory though on the odd day some of the selections were on the cold side but overall were good with a choice between Western, European and Asian varieties. I also enjoyed lunch and dinner at the café on several occasions and the meals were very tasty,satisfying and inexpensive. The hotel has a "boutique" feel about it without and the expense and as it is centrally located it is close to a lot of Singapore's attractions. It is also within walking distance to a train and bus station. This was my first solo trip to Singapore and my stay at the SRC made my vacation a memorable one.

Room Tip: I was lucky enough to have room 323 which overlooked the Padang (instead of the road) so it was very...

The Residence is actually located on the top floor (3rd) of the Singapore Recreation Club which is on the Padang with the Singapore Cricket Club at the other end. The Club is also in the middle of the F1 circuit when the grand prix is on and the lights for the race , held in September, are already being erected (June14).
The hotel has 26 smallish rooms , with a 4 of them a little larger than average being called premier rooms or suites.
The hotel is part of a club, and that is important as the hotel works around the club and its members so quiet often facilities maybe ‘booked’ for functions by members.
Has a Chinese restaurant on site (didn’t use it as there are 1000’s in the city) as well as the poolside cafe (in the basement) which is used for all other meals. Cafe is just that, a cafe and has a well presented but limited range of food available and is also the pace for breakfast.
Barkers is the club bar / lounge and can be a bit hit and miss although it does have great prices with a beer at S$8 and a Gin Sling at S$13 as well (its $32 at Raffles two blocks away!) as the full range of bar drinks and cocktails. Entertainment is provided via a 3 piece live band on certain nights of the week although not on the weekend .
Service is very good and the staff are really helpful and approachable. Duncan (Hotel Manager) is very helpful and always on hand for any little problems that crop up and his staff are great.
Bear in mind, this is a hotel built as an add on to a sports club established in 1883, it’s not a "Brass and Glass Palace" and there are loads of those around Singapore. If thats what you are looking for the residence is not for you. If you want a small intimate central location with loads of history great facilities (Pool, Serious exercise room, field sports and more) and good prices (for Singapore) then this is a great venue with a central location.
City Hall MRT is 50 m away and lets you whizz around Singapore for a few dollars. Clarke Quay is two stops and S$1.30…can’t fault that…or you could walk it in 20 mins although you’ll need to think about taking a clean shirt with you as its very humid here for walking about!
Raffles City , likewise is 50M away and full of food places in the basement and every type of shopping in the Mall…and I mean every type…LV, Rolex, etc.. etc… as well as the other ‘normal everyday’ stores over about 5 floors.
Decor is a little dated although Duncan assures me that a refurb is planned for October (post F1).
One final note, like any club there are the odd few club members who aren’t always ‘friendly’. I encountered a couple of ‘grouches’ in the bar one night who were very loud even though the band was playing but then you do get these types world over…just be aware. By and large most of the users of the bar are members and friendly and most hotel guests are out and about jn the 1000’s of bars and food locations in the city so its not really an issue.
I was there for 12 days and enjoyed the location while attending 2 conferences. It has great rates, good wifi that is free and fast, it has great bar prices and plenty of underground parking if you have a car (most don’t) and if you’re heading here for the F1…this is the place!
