From the previous reviews i was expecting something better than our 5 day stay last week. We travelled with 2 young children. We have stayed in some lovely places in the middle east mainly where we were treated really well and was expecting this to be the same. The deluxe double wasn't big enough so were given an upgrade to signature deluxe which wasn't much bigger but had an amazing view. Placed in our room the children were given some posh chocolates and a card saying hope we were enjoying the room so they are obviously keen to keep you happy. We had 2 queen beds. What i did find annoying is that we had to ask for our room to be cleaned, it was done the first day and then after that we had put the 'clean my room' light on by door but no one came next day so day after that had to call someone to come and do it. We had payed a lot of money i think for our stay so we should at least expect some clean towels and beds to be made. We also couldn't find anywhere to hang up our things, towels, swimming things etc, they really need more hangers in bathroom, definitely set out for one person or a couple. And what's wrong with a normal light switch instead of the electronic things by the beds, i found them quite confusing. Nespresso machines were nice bonus in room. We had the choice of 2 breakfast buffets, one in the italian restaurant, other by the pool, the pool had fewer choice so ate in the italian. There was a lot of choice but didn't think the cooked breakfast were anything special, the sausages were pink in the middle and there was only a small amount of other things to choose from in the cooked section. The children enjoyed the choice though and having fresh juices made for them and also a hot chocolate. A couple of days in and the staff already knew our names when entering for breakfast. The location was very good, right opposite raffles for a walk around their historic hotel. The MRT is right below hotel even though i felt taxis were cheaper for our family approx S$5 where as we had to pay MRT tickets for each one of us so it soon added up. Also below the hotel are so many shops and food courts. We had planned to try hawker markets but instead ate at the food courts below, some very modern, trendy and clean places that you struggle to find in perth. The 2 pools (one for children, one adults) are shared by the swiss hotel and at some times we really struggled to find a sun lounger, i also couldn't find any changing rooms by pools which found a bit strange. All in all our stay was ok, the rooms aren't big enough for families and i wasn't impressed by lack of house keeping. Would we stay here again? Probably not. But the location i don't think can be beaten.
