Beautiful and grand home

4.2 on January 30, 2016

We enjoyed a two night stay at LResidence. It was like coming home. The welcome was authentic and the staff could not do more for us. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and very nutritious. We also truly enjoyed the indoor pool. Would recommend this B&B to anyone wanting to enjoy downtown Singapour. Lise and Maurice from Ottawa, Canada


Above and Beyond

The house was a mansion. So thoughtfully decorated! The rooms very comfortable and well furnished. Had everything you could possibly need including a wonderfully refreshing pool and workout area. Great location close to Stevens MRT. The service was superb. Left feeling blessed and invigorated. Loved it!


Outstanding service & fascinating owners. Great place to relax.

The staff and owners went out of their way to make our stay more enjoyable. The history in this house is so interesting. It is a short walk to the Botanical gardens which are well worth a visit as well. We would certainly stay here again.

This private residence is full of antique memorabilia, for four of our six days we were the only guests and it was like having our own mansion with excellent staff. Audrey and Brian Newcastle England


Lovely B&B

3.6 on June 20, 2015

Delightful. We had 4 nights and wished we'd been able to stay longer. The rooms are comfortable and Airconditioned. The house has a lot of character with plenty of places to relax whether inside, at the pool or outside under cover. Very thoughtful service, and great cooked breakfasts. Convenient to Stevens MRT (opens late 2015) and a $5-6 taxi into Orchard Rd area. Walking distance to Botanical Gardens and local eating places. Recommended.


Home away from home

4.8 on December 17, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at L Residence at the end of a very long trip. It was a bit like already being home, more like staying in a family home (which it is) than in a standard B and B. My husband left his clothes on the floor where he'd dropped them the night before, and when we came back at the end of the day, they had been washed and neatly folded and left in a laundry basket by our door. We weren't given any choices for breakfast, but the eggs, fruit and toast were all great. We were also allowed to keep the room into the afternoon on our day of departure, which was very nice as we spent the morning in the Botanic Garden nearby, and then were able to shower and dress in traveling clothes before a very long flight back to N. America. The house is historic and beautiful, and the neighborhood delightful and close to the bus and a 10-15 minute walk to the MRT. With all these good things, there was a shortage of working electrical outlets in the bedroom, however I was able to plug my phone into an outlet in the hall. It wasn't always easy to find someone around -- I think we were the only guests -- and making a reservation took a bit of persistence. If you're looking for a sparkling, pristine, impersonal place to stay, this probably isn't for you, but if you're looking for a place that feels like home with the imperfections of a lived-in place, full of family history, you will be happy here.


Home with History and City Comfort

4.8 on December 21, 2013

Booking and confirmation through email. Informed the approximate arrival time and was greeted with warmth. The house was lovely decorated and was very grand. Huge paintings and heavy furniture. The rooms and toilets were modern and new. We booked the larger suite with bath. Indoor lap pool was a nice relief for the humidity and heat. Quiet and private home. Rooms had complimentary coffee and tea and some biscuits. Location was very convenient and many nice eateries at walking distance Breakfast was lovely and hearty. We stayed for a week and would definitely recommend to our family and friends. The house owners provide us with great privacy and we felt at home with all the lovely furnishing. Lovely bed and breakfast. Will be back again.


Comfortable Homely Stay

The location of the house is very central and is only a street from a beautiful Botanical Gardens. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. It has wireless Internet and movies & news on the Huge TV in the room. The bathroom is beautiful, with new clean marble walls and nice rain shower. The public transport is so convenient and I took the underground near the house. Breakfast was with multi grain toast and choice of how you want the eggs. Coffee and tea was accompanied with fresh fruits. I had a chance to have a nice few laps in their indoor pool. I will definitely recommend this place. Nice and peaceful neighborhood. There is a mosque nearby and is very popular. Nice local touch to Singapore. My family and I enjoyed ourselves.

Friendly and quiet place to stay

3.0 on September 29, 2009

The 1st room we had was old and especially the bathroom needs renovation! We had a leak in our room, so we got another room, which was much better and really convenient. Overall, the staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good. We really had a nice relaxing stay.
