Ok, sorry, for budget l am thinking something around 250 singapore dollars per night, but am not sure what to expect for that?, More importantly l am wanting to be in a place where it's comfortable and not over the top as LM not a business man!, But want to be able to walk out of the hotel/resort and go for a pub meal or something!.

Thanks

1/ Swiss MC will be perfect. Its the most recommended option for families with children and so nicely located.

2/ points of interest that might be interesting for the 8 y/o

Thanks for the recommendation and have had a look at the Swissotel MC and looks great!.

Your thoughts on something Sentosa Island?, As there is the waterpark and universal studios there. Or is this a bit to far away?, Is there an option to go for a day sail on a yacht in Singapore?

If you are considering Swissotel MC then to reach sentosa is easy - 3 min walk to Clarke Quay MRT station, 7 mins travel and then you have reached harbour from where you have a few option to get over to Sentosa

Early check-in and Late checkout are subject to availability and you may need to pay for a later checkout. Depends on how early you hope to gain access to the room? Sometimes I get my room a couple of hours before official check-in time. Other times no and I leave my bags and go sightseeing and comeback later. If you are arriving really early morning you may pay for the night before too so you are guaranteed to get into your room when you arrive.

Check-out time is usually 12noon, so many people leave their bags after checkout and go sightseeing and get them later. If you wanted a 4pm or 6pm checkout you may be required to pay an extra half day or extra fee for that.

Don’t book airport transfers through a hotel. You may end up paying SGD$80-120 or more for their fancy car. You could get a regular taxi from the airport for SGD$20-30 depending on what time of day or night you arrive (there are certain surcharges for different times). Taxis run on meter and are safe, clean and you can ask for a receipt at the end of the journey. Drivers usually give you the exact change down to the last few cents. No tipping required either.

I put together this Google Doc on things for Families and children’s activities and attractions in Singapore and Sentosa. It might give you both a few ideas:-

I just wanted to add that the Swissotel Merchant Court was my first thought also. Pool is very nice for kids. Very good advice above on sights and transport. Have a great trip - Singapore is a special treat and the Swissotel is wonderful. If late check out isn't available, ask if you can leave the bags and use the pool facilities for cleaning up and changing before you leave for your flight. I know guests who have done this.

you could get an attractions package from Hard Rock Hotel at RWS for about $900. It comes with room and tickets to the attractions at RWS, I find it good value for money as the tickets themselves are close to $300 in value. Plus Hard Rock has a fantastic pool.
