We have just returned home after spending 6 days at the lovely ParkRoyal on Pickering. We had just finished a 20 day cruise before booking in at the ParkRoyal and when we arrived at 10am we were immediately shown to our superior king bed room which was on a corner of one of the towers on the 13th floor. The room was sunny and airy and the bathroom was divided into three with a separate shower, separate toilet and with the hand basin in the centre. The views from both the bedroom and the bathroom were incredible.
The bed was fantastic and we slept really well especially as the blinds lockout all the light at night. The room was also very quiet considering we were in the heart of Singapore.
We had booked a Club Lounge room and we did enjoy spending time up in the Lounge. The food was fantastic and the drinks were plentiful. The staff up in the Lounge were exceptional and were so kind as to present us with a cake and candle and two glasses of champagne when it was our 50th wedding anniversary. They could not do enough for us and each of the girls went out of their way to make our stay so delightful. We have used many club lounges over the years and the ParkRoyal lounge would have to be one of the best we have ever used.
The pool area is beautiful and we spent time reading and relaxing around the pool. The MRT was so close, we used the Chinatown Station but Clark Quay MRT is nearly as close in the other direction. From the MRT we could get to anywhere in Singapore. The ParkRoyal is also only a block or so from the Clark Quay bars and restaurants and 2 blocks from the heart of Chinatown.
We loved the little extras such as the 2 pieces of free laundry each day, the free internet and the morning paper.
The only fault we could find was that the wardrobe in our bedroom was only a single and it was just very hard to fit our clothes into such a small wardrobe. We realize that this hotel is mainly for business people or for those on short stays but to have such a small wardrobe in a new 5 star hotel seemed a bit mean.
