Nearest MRT is Outram Park Station. Hotel is located quite conveniently at the corner of Havelock Road and Kim Seng Road. I took bus 51, alighted at the nearest bus-stop and walked about 300 metres.
Outdoor ROM Gazebo
Lovely fountain setting !
Drawbacks will be the relatively long walk (with stairs) from the main building to the gazebo and basically it's outdoor.
As the Grand Ballroom is the only ballroom at level 4, it is entitled to a very big and private reception area.
The ambience of the ballroom is very nice and romantic. I think the ballroom can hold up to 40 tables with comfortable walking area. It has high ceiling, L-shaped aisle and two screens.
The stage area is quite special. The background is not the usual curtain or flower setting, but with a real garden theme ! The backdrop of the stage is a transparent glass panel separating the decorations using trees, plants, flowers and a nice gazebo !
Food and Servcie
Food is served individually. Fish is fresh and overall taste is acceptable. Service is quite bad. (I thought it was only my personal experience, but counter checked with a friend who went on another occasion, and she shared the same sentiments) It was observed that there is no standard in serving food at every table. At our table, the waitress served from point to point, moving from one seat to another. Sometimes she would served guests after scooping a few portions, then scooped another few portions and served the rest of the guests. It was noticed that new glass of wine was served and previous glass removed even before guest finished the drink.
