A different Singapore experience
Posted Oct 10, 2016
The Orchid Country Club Hotel is in a lovely setting far removed from the hustle and bustle of Singapore City. It is obviously very popular with local people, and golfers. As Singapore expats from many years ago it quite suited us as it brought back memories, but distance from the city and the usual tourist highlights could be a problem for new visitors.
The staff were generally pleasant but the service was a bit haphazard, and at times not very professional. Some facilities were dated and shabby, for example the Vanda Terrace cafe was not up to scratch, chairs, crockery and menus were old and dirty. Although I ordered a vegetarian tofu clay hot pot, it had a prawn and Chinese sausage in it.
The room itself was quite clean and comfortable, although chairs and carpets had seen better days, the bathroom was new and modern.
There are good facilities for children here.
