The Raffles hotel was everything we imagined it would be. From the moment we got out of the car until the time we left, the service was excellent. It was our wedding anniversary while we were there and we were given a bottle of champagne. We had fresh fruit in our room every day and if we needed anything, we only had to ask. We only had two full days in Singapore as we were also visiting Thailand and needed to fit everything in, so we asked the lady at reception where would be good to visit. She got a map and circled everywhere we wanted to go and even told us of an Indian restaurant that she ate at where the food was very good. That evening we went to the restaurant to eat and the food was wonderful. The ambiance of the hotel from the cooling entrance to the solid wood furnishings and marble floors added an old Colonial feel to the whole place. We had cream tea in the Drawing Room (away from the tourists in the Tiffin Room!) and it was gorgeous - the 3 cream scones each finished us off! The Long Bar had its own sense of atmosphere added to by the peanut shells crackling underfoot, and the obligatory Singapore Sling was as refreshing as it was colourful. All in all everything we'd wished for - not a modern hotel with sleek, sharp edges, but nevertheless a 100% classic and a perfect start to a fantastic holiday.
