Visited this lovely old hotel which takes you back to the roaring twenties in atmosphere & is a very pleasant place to stroll around. Home to the famous " Singapore Sling" we did give into temptation to have one then found out afterwards that the price was pretty extortionate! 36.50 sd. About £22:50 a go. Not really worth that sort...

Whilst I didn't stay here I did come for a visit to the Long Bar, home of the Singapore Sling. The bar is no longer in its original location on the ground floor but is now upstairs and much smaller, but is still a beautiful bar. Drinks are expensive so I didn't go for a Sling this time, especially seeing...

A trip to Singapore would be incomplete without a trip to Raffles. This iconic hotel has shown up in so many movies and books it must be seen first hand. It was undergoing some renovations when we visited so there was limited access. The outer facade did not disappoint and walking up to the front door, one could be transported...

It's quite difficult to put into words how amazing staying at the Raffles in Singapore really is. And forget photos, they don't do the place any justice. It's simply unbelievable and it felt like a privilege to stay there. Being welcomed with Singapore slings was so good! It was such a comfortable check-in experience sitting on the lounge chairs at...

We recently ended a holiday with a three night stay at Raffles in Singapore. I wanted to stay at Raffles before it was closed for refurbishment and so was intrigued as to whether I would love it's old fashioned tradition and decor or whether it would be 'faded glory'. I absolutely loved it and would encourage any one to stay...

Toursitic afteroon bar visit, post lunch for a singapore sling for my father in laws' 70th birthday treat. I was about to book a steak lunch there too until I saw the reviews of other diners who complained about the quality for the $400 bill per couple. Don't mind paying good money for good quality, but not to be ripped...

Amazing stay, like stepping back in time. Service was incredible as were the Singapore Slings. Being an Englishmen I loved the high tea, reminded me of the stories my grandfather told me about his time in Asia. Would definitely come back.

The setting immediately captures you as you enter the circular driveway and approach the front door where the sign re-directed us to the bar and billiard room to the left hand side. The staff were engaging and professional as we sat amidst the colonial old world atmospheric bar area and, of course, ordered our drinks. The Singapore slings were exceptional,...
