The Fullerton Hotel Singapore

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 March 2010

We booked this hotel from 2nd to 5th March and we really enjoyed our stay at the Fullerton hotel. We got a quay room facing the Marina Bay with fantastic views of the Singapore Flyer, Esplanade and its surroundings. The room came with free tickets to the Flyer, river cruise to Clark Quay, Asian Civilisation and Peranakan Museum entrances. We visited the hotel's Asian Spa and we took their "Pure Romance Roses" couple spa package and the experience was great. We dined at The Lighthouse restaurant located at the hotel"s top floor that gave a sweeping view of the bay area. The Jade restaurant serves delicious chinese food. Overall, the experience with Fullerton hotel was truly amazing, not forgetting the great services provided by all the staff from the front desk to the concierge to even the housekeeping department. This hotel truly did Singapore proud. Keep it up!

I have regularly stayed at the Fullerton - it's a well-run, beautifully presented 5 star hotel overlooking Singapore's Boat Quay.
However this time, I found myself stepping off a 12-hour pane ride into one of the Fullerton's dreaded Courtyard rooms. They are overwhelmingly depressing, with a brutal view of some other unlucky guest's bedroom. So - you get no view, have to keep your curtains closed and hence your room ends up very dark and plain nasty. To make matters worse, my shower only ran cold. Problem is when you are already jet-lagged you don't have the energy to complain! So my advice is if you stay at the Fullerton ONLY do so if you have a room with a view! Then it is 100% fine!

We stayed here for a few nights at the beginning of our honeymoon and it was lovely. This coverted post office building is beautiful outside and has had an amazing refurbishment on the inside.
The entrance hall is huge and really stunning to walk into after a long journey. The staff we're very friendly from the reception staff, cleaning staff, door staff and the porters were all very helpful and friendly.
The pool was very clean, plenty of towels to help yourself to, we ordered food and drinks to the pool and charged them to our room and the price was quite reasonable for a 5star hotel.
It's in a great location to travel around the city, there's plenty to do in Singapore and you could easily stay for longer and just cover most attractions.
There's a restaurant opposite its huge and lite up at night the food was fabulous at this place it's a must if you eat there definitley do, it was the same price as the chinese we ate at the night before and ten times better in taste, service and experience.

The night Safari was brilliant, allow yourself several hours to watch the animal shows which are great and not at all mean or harmful to the animals. Also if you can do some of the walking trails they are excellent too you see some amazing creatures, if your short for time hop on the train that takes you around.
Sentosa Island is great to, again lots of beaches, amusments, water world, butterfly park the list goes on.

I stayed here with my boyfriend as a Valentine's treat, having booked their special Valentine's package on the internet which included a Quay room, a complimentary bottle of wine, bath treats and bath robes, and a 4-course in-room dining experience for $500.

The hotel is beautiful and a real icon in Singapore, so I was very excited to be staying here, even though I have eaten at several of the hotel's restaurants before.

Our Quay room on the 7th floor came with a balcony that had fabulous views across the Marina, but it was surprisingly small. (This became even more apparent during our in-room meal where the waiter struggled to get the dining trolley between the bed and the tv cabinet!)

Having just settled into our room we received a call asking us what time we would like to dine and what our meal choices were. This was a bit annoying as we had been asked to pre-choose these when we booked, so we were surprised they didn't seem to have the information.

We went down to Post Bar in the lobby for some pre-dinner drinks. The cocktail list is very extensive and the bar tenders know what they are doing - we enjoyed some fabulous concotions! Whilst we were sipping away, the fire alarm sounded on several occasions although at no point did anyone come and speak to us about evacuating or there being a problem (friends who were also staying at the hotel kept being evacuated from their room). We went to head upstairs about 7.45 pm for our meal at 8pm, but were told the lifts could not be used because of the fire bell. We asked the kitchen to be notified and our meal delayed until we could access our room. Within 5 minutes we were were able to go back up, although no-one explained what the problem had been. Perhaps because of the fire alarm problem, our meal arrived late at 8.15 pm, and sadly came without our twice pre-ordered bottle of white wine which we had to chase up when we were on the second course. When it did arrive it was warm! And as I mentioned before, the romantic atmosphere was ruined by the fact I had to keep moving out of the way so they could serve our meal as there was so little space. At one point the waiter handed me my desert even though my main course plate was still in front of me - very disappointing service when I know the Fullerton is capable of much more.
But the meal itself was delicious - very much up to the hotel's usually high gastronomic standards.

The next morning we headed down for breakfast about 9am and it was like a circus. Packed to the ratfters and we had to wait 5-10 minutes for a table. Then they kept clearing away all our cutlery and glasses before we were finished, so we left without having our fill.

So, whilst the Fullerton is really a very impressive hotel, I have to say I felt let down on service - especially considering its 5* status and expensive price tag. I really enjoyed our stay, but it certainly didn't meet up to my expectations.

It's amazing that this hotel used to be a post office! Location is very nice - next to the water and other interesting areas in Singapore. Take a romantic stroll along the Singapore River. Buffet breakfast was not absolutely amazing, but still way above average. The room was clean, and the bed was very comfortable and cozy.

We stayed here for 2 nights on our way back from New Zealand.

We arrived in the evening and had a quay view room (as booked on Skoosh). There were some lovely fruit , flowers and chocolates that we didn't expect, but there was also a note addressed to another couple - they had obviusly reallocated teh room at the last minute!!

Room was lovely with a nice marble bathroom , lovely furnishings and Molton Brown toiletries.

The location was ideal for usas we had not really explored this part of town before (previous stays in Oriental and Sentosa Resort). We could walk to most attractions in the area and it certainly had a buzz with business people and locals as well as tourists.

We ate in the Lighthouse Restaurant on the top floor. The staff were very kind and showed us round the roof terrace and took photos of us with our drinks. The food was nice, but expensive for what it was. A nice one-off treat for the view if nothing else (we were sat right by the window).

Breakfast was superb in the Town Restaurant -- a truly international selection buffet. We also ate there on our last night. The seafood buffet was expensive but we made sure we got our money's worth before we had to leave for the long flight to London (well we are from Yorkshire!).

The pool was small and crowded on our last day. We had arranged a late check-out (12pm) and left our luggage with the porter. We spend the rest of the afternoon by the pool and later retrieved our hand luggae to get changed in the spa facilities. A lot of others were doing the same! Very convenient thought.

The Fullerton was just what we needed to round off our trip- convenient and a good location. I would definitely stay there again but wouldn't try the restaurants again - there are lots of lovely places within a few yards to eat and drink.

Fullerton is a place you will remembered for it's hospitality.

Wrote to them enquiring on special rates for room and dinner for our 10th wedding anniversary and a very helpful Ms Christeen Woon from Reservation Sales wrote back soon after, offering us specials for amenities in the room (which turns out to be premium chocolates and red wine). The accompanying card was signed off by a Ms Christy, titled Guest Historian and this led us to think that Fullerton is a hotel that may actually took the pains to 'catagorise' guests likes, dislikes and habits?

Not going to touch on the room as you get exactly what you for - spacious with good view (opt for quay room). Was however, surprised by an unwash cup lined with remnants of orange sacs when we check into the room.

What impressed us was the treatment given to the locals.. there was never the '2nd citizen' feeling a local may be subjected to in some of the local hotels. Wait staff in Town restaurant, where we had our dinner and breakfast were very efficient and were quick to clear dishes and top up drinks despite our table being the only Singaporean in a restaurant full of of overseas guest.
