“A wonderful retreat in Singapore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

For anyone going to Singapore, please consider the Residence at Singapore Recreation Club. It ticks all the boxes in terms of location, value, service, quality, etc. The bedding is divine, the bathroom beautifully appointed, and the room is spacious. Manager Duncan Roberts and his team took special care of us when we visited for a few days in early March, even giving us a free umbrella each (to keep) when we were about to go out in the rain. The personal feel of this place makes it a real "home away from home". I will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with views over the Padang.

This hotel punches well above its weight on just about every level. Great location. Great value for money. Really good service. Good quality rooms and access to facilities of the club. Transport hubs are nearby and having the Padang nearby is a really nice feel. You really can't go past it. We will definitely try to get in when we come back.

The hotel is probably one of the best locations in Singapore, opposite Raffles and several other 5* properties. It’s right on The Padang so request one of the Padang view rooms. This isn’t the normal sort of chain hotel, it’s first and foremost a club with rooms that I assume help fund the club. So you need to be aware you are subject to club rules. Initially this really put me off and made me feel a bit weary. I am after all on holiday. At check in they explain the rules, no shorts in certain area etc. Check in was a breeze and the staff are lovely. The room is in keeping with the club, sort of older style with dark woods and carpet. However I liked the place and I soon forgot about the few rules they impose. For what I paid the room was amazing value and of a very high standard. The view of the Padang rally is incredible. Bathroom was so modern and clean and I liked the nice touches like the orchids in the bathroom.

I went to explore and had a drink in one of the bars. The clubs bars weren’t at all for me. They are tired and in real need of renovation. I did use the pool which is great and the breakfast was excellent. I didn’t mind that they serve it in the pool bar.

In summary I would have no hesitation in recommending this place and I would most definitely stay again. Top marks for an excellent stay guys!

The SRC is located just across City Hall MRT station, so going to Orchard Road and to/from the airport is convenient. There's lots of shops & eateries within a couple of minutes walk too.

The lobby and the reception look dated, but the room was spacious, clean and modern.

We landed at 7am in the morning, so we couldn't check into the room yet, but we were offered to use the shower facilities in their gym. The shower was clean and definitely needed after a long haul flight. Our flight out of Singapore was also late at night and a long one, so I used the shower after checking out in the morning.

When I knew I was going to Singapore, I checked all the value for money accommodations with great location. I booked at 10 hotels from Agoda booking.com but somehow I was not happy with my selection. It took me two weeks to find this hotel. Thank God there is a Trip Advisor review. With little bit more money to add to my hotel budget, this is "D" hotel for me. This hotel is not a typical a high rise hotel. It doesn't have a big lobby with bus load of tourist. It has only 26 rooms.. though it is perfect for me coz I do not like crowded lobby and high rise building. We do have a view of the Pandang field. Residence at SRC is centrally located on the corner of 3 main roads, Stamford Road, Beach road (where Singapore Landmark Raffle Hotel is located) and Connaught Drive a triangle distance to Raffle City (a mall and where you can ride the MRT), Esplanade Mall (Durian Bldg) and Marina Square, You can actually have a pleasant stroll to Marina Bay Sands from this area. Oh by the way, a church is also walking distance to the hotel along Brash Basah Road.
Breakfast is very good (buffet) and will rate it 3 1/2. They make perfect egg omelette. One minor flaw is that before you get to the restaurant, (Basement 1) the chlorine smelling hall welcomes you as you open the door to the breakfast dining room. Hotel bathroom is clean modern and it smells good. It has black granite tiles flooring, mosaic and frosted glass walls. It has the amenities of a 4 star hotel! shampoo, toothbrush lotions, etc.
I did not check the other areas of the hotel because these areas are mainly for the use of club members but, as a guest, you can access the place provided you follow the dress code requirement of the Club. One tip I would suggest, this location is haven for runners and joggers. Do not forget to bring your running shoes!

Room Tip: Go for the premier room, it has balcony overlooking the Pandang field and good for a family!
