We had afternoon tea in the Grand Lobby. The setting, staff and atmosphere was excellent. However, we thought the food was a bit of a let down. I've had better afternoon teas in some garden centres. To us it was as though the thought of "we are raffles hotel so our afternoon tea has to be unique" I'm afraid for us it was a bit too unique. They had really over tried to make it a little too different to any other afternoon tea you've likely to have had.
Fabulous. Dinner and cocktails
We went for dinner in the Tiffin room. Great service and food. Beautiful presentation, taste, atmosphere and excellent value for money. It’s not as expensive as you might think! You might need to watch out for the prices are high for alcoholic drinks. Service charge and local taxes are included in you bill. Top tip would be to arrive earlier and go into Writer’s Bar to left of lobby and ask for a Gin Sling Ask the barman for the Writers journal which is full of wonderful information and photos of this famous hotel (Singapore Slings can be found in the Ling Bar back of the hotel)
The food was fabulous, the staff was so very nice, hospitable and very helpful. A very small thing I didn't like was that I was given a table in the middle of the room and I had to request another table more quiet and comfortable and inconspicuous. I love the tiffin box at the table touch, it made the dining experience less 'buffet' like although the food all round was excellent. Wish the lunch timing was longer, felt I had to rush the lunch as it was closing at 2.30 and we had nowhere less informal in the hotel to extend having a longer post-lunch coffee. But all round, it was a lovely venue and worth a trip if you like north Indian food. Do you not provide bathroom facilities to outside diners in the hotel in the main building? On both visits, I've had to use the public ones outside the main building and the one outside the Tiffin Room was out of order and the bathroom reserved for disabilities was in full use with a queue snaking around the corridor from outside tourists
Stunning beautiful hotel.
We just got home from a week of staying at the Grand Dame. She really is a beautiful hotel. Yes there was some filming at the hotel, it was actually fun to watch. The pool was closed we were taken across the road which was fine. Check in was quick and easy in our room. The rooms, we had two courtyard rooms, were beautiful. Cannot fault any member of staff. Everybody was friendly and professional. Not one issue anywhere. Cann't fault this beautiful hotel. We will be back.
We came to Singapore 2 years ago and unfortunately Raffles was under taking a refurbishment. So this visit Raffles was on my to do list. WOW it was much better than my expectations. It was beautiful service from start to finish. It was pure luxury but without the hoity toity ness to it. The surroundings are stunning and food was delicious and was not overpriced at all. Our next visit was to the Long Bar for Singapore Sling, we had to wait about 5 minutes but sometimes this can take a good hour as people usually spend about an hour in here. The tradition is to have peanuts and leave the shells on the floor this apparently is the way it as always been. The drinks are expensive about £20 for 1 Singapore Sling but it has to be done. Our experience brilliant would highly recommend
