“Great hotel with excellent customer service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

With the many hotels in Singapore that I was considering, I chose this place because of the consistent positive feedback from hotel reviewers and its affordable price. True enough, our expectations were even exceeded because of the excellent customer service ;  its accessibility to almost all tourists spots ; very good and clean facilities  and room fixtures ; very good food served by the restaurant.  We are a family of four with 2 children and  we are glad that our requests during booking were all granted. We arrived early at the hotel and were allowed to check-in much earlier. The front desk staff at the third floor were friendly and accommodating and very quick in acting on requests.  We were even assisted in packaging our additional luggage. I can say that excellent service is present in all areas -  entrance/lobby ,  front desk, restaurant. Even the manager and supervisor were assisting personally all the guests.  We are also happy on the tasteful buffet breakfast with many selections and very nice ambience. Most of all, the place is actually at the center of the city with just a few steps from City Hall MRT and several other malls, fast food chains, supermarkets, and tourist spots.  We are all satisfied with this hotel/recreation club. We will surely be back here in our next travel to Singapore.  

Room Tip: Request for a room with a nice view of the football area

It is right across the road from Raffles City and the MRT is also under Raffles City. So I'd say location is its best point. I walked to the Casino at Marina Bay. It took 15 mins. On the way I passed Marina Square, more shopping places.

The breakfast was so-so on first morning and I skipped by the second morning after seeing that it was the same as the first. But, no smell from the swimming pool.

Room was of decent size and shower was powerful in a reasonably large bathroom. I liked the in room free wifi and the free use of a desktop and printer at the lobby.
I'd definitely stay there again!

We were so pleased to have found this hotel, bang in the middle of Singapore.

The hotel's atmosphere is subdued and friendly, which is welcome after the hub bub that is Singapore. Booking in was very relaxed and professional and the rooms have an inclusive club feel (my husband is already on his way to use the gym and pool). Our room looks over the Padang - a view which is very special - but also means that its really quiet - no traffic noise!

The room is very comfortable and set up either for holiday/travellers or business folk. Fast , free wifi and large LCD TV are standard.

The western breakfast was very plentiful , varied and tasty ( espresso coffee on demand)

We made a mistake with our booking (all our fault) and all the staff went out of their way to help sort it out. Especial thanks to Duncan the manager.

We would definitely come again and recommend it to or friends

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.
