“Great Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

Had a wonderful 8 days stay and could not fault it. We were made welcome from the moment we walked through the door by the very attentive staff, and the duty manager Nathan..Rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean and had all the facilities we needed for a comfortable stay, Nice firm beds with crisp white linen, fresh towels and toiletries, tea making and a very useful fridge. We had a 9th floor room overlooking the park and Clemenceau Avenue, and a glimpse of the swimming pool. Breakfast had sufficient choice to suit everybody and plentiful tea and coffee.
The hotel is ideally situated close to Orchard Road and Dhoby Ghaut MTR station, and bus routes..a short walk takes you to the night life of Clarke Quay. Singapura Plaza is also nearby with many shops and eating places plus a large Cold Storage.
Yes an excellent stay and I would stay again and recommend it. Thank you to all the staff.

Room Tip: All similar so not important..

Only issue was with the beds, they are on casters so getting in and out of bed causes it to move. The hotel is OK. Only stayed here because a group of friends were staying here. Breakfast was adequate. Although in a quiet neighbourhood it is only a 5 minute walk to Orchard Road and the MTR.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

A large group of us checked into the Lodge for a reunion and we were heartedly embraced by Nathan the duty manager. The room I had overlooked an office block which unfortunately meant keeping the curtains drawn during the day. The bathroom was spotless with plenty of hot water anytime of day. The only downside was the lack of face washer and the towels small & a bit threadbare. Being a tea drinker, more than two teabags a day & a small milk would have been appreciated.
Location is handy to Orchard Rd. Dhoby Gaut MRT, Cold Storage & Hop on Hop off bus stop just a short walk.
Breakfast staff were delightful and the breakfast plentiful though at times the cooked food was not hot.
Wifi charges are expensive however you can choose included breakfast or wifi. Also good to note that the money earned by this hotel supports its charity that looks after disadvantaged women so profits go towards a worthy cause. Overall reasonable value and I would stay again.

Hotel well located (a 3 min walk from a metro station with several lines) and a very good value for money. We had a family room (4 single beds that can very easily move to a double bed if needed). The room was very spacious. Possibility to add a bed for baby and more. The bedding is good and the equipment quite correct.

This hotel, simple and clean, is really great. It is next to a "node" metro station (Dhoby Ghaut), which allows you to have access to the entire city without much travel time. The breakfast is ok and friendly welcome.

Stayed at the Fort Canning Lodge for 5 days. Satisfied my expectations. Its a three star hotel but no worries they have clean rooms and very friendly staff. 3 mins walk to Orchard road 2mins to Dhoby Ghaut station. We requested a room facing the park and higher floor and it's all good. Rooms are quiet big and clean toilet and bath down side is that they have hard beds. Complimentry wifi for 2 if you book on their hotel website. Will stay here again!
