We (2 adults, 16 and 7 year old) stayed at the Goodwood in April 2014.
We chose this hotel due to location, appearance and option of ground floor rooms as my wife is unable to go in elevators. For once her fear was a blessing in disguise. What a fantastic hotel.
Excellent location on Scotts Road, about a 5 minute walk from the famous Ion Shopping mall on Orchard Road. We felt very safe everywhere we went in Singapore and walked from the hotel to Orchard Road everyday. You can catch the Hop On Hop Off bus from the bus stop on the corner of Scotts and Orchard Road.
Wonderful old colonial look to the building.
We checked in late at night and found it quick and easy. The receptionist was very helpful.
We stayed in 2 connecting poolside suites that opened directly onto the main pool.
We had requested a king in one and two singles in the other. When we arrived reception informed us that both rooms had king bed but they could make up the sofa bed. Given our late arrival and how tired the children were for the first night the children just shared the king bed. The next day we asked if we could have two singles made up but this was not possible so we had the sofa bed made up. Given that we had two suites and the bedrooms could be closed off from the lounge area by sliding doors this actually ended up working well. Great separate lounge area with sofa, dining table and big TV. Dimming lights, great for leaving a light on for the children.
Rooms were very quiet, you can hear people in the pool but as it was people having fun it wasn't offensive by any means nor did it continue past sundown.
The bathrooms are big, the only thing that annoyed me was that the shower is in the bath and the shower curtains do not contain the water. Water therefore goes on the bathroom floor and down a drain. It is also quite a step out of the bath which may be difficult for some people. I would suggest that the baths be replaced with showers, does anyone use baths in hotels anymore?
Rooms are cleaned every day to a high standard complete with shoes being lined neatly up against the wall.
As part of our package we had breakfast everyday at the hotel and found it excellent. Basically buffet fare, the chef's do great omelette's. Wonderful attentive staff offering coffee, hot chocolate etc when you arrive. Pancakes, cereal, yoghurt and toast for fussy kids. With a fussy eater in the family we found it well worth having the breakfast package if only to avoid trying to find breakfast with hungry children in tow.
Room Service food:
We had room service on 2 nights. No problems at all from grilled cheese sandwiches and burgers to narsi goring. Great food, good quick service and reasonable prices.
The hotel has a number of restaurants, however we ate out most of the time as Singapore has such great restaurants at cheaper prices.
The main pool is very big, but patrons from the restaurants are basically seated next to this pool, which did not feel comfortable to us. We spent most of our time in the smaller pool in another area of the hotel.
Both pools were never crowded, were crystal clear and clean. Lovely landscaping around them.
The concierge was very helpful, organised transfers and tickets to Universal studios at a moments notice.
House keeping supervisors(?) double checking that we were happy with how our room had been cleaned.
Complementary bottled water, newspaper and nespresso coffee pods replenished daily. Acknowledgment with a smile, nod or greeting by name from staff as you walk by.
Yes we would, in a heart beat.
