Novotel Singapore Clarke Quay Wedding Banquet Review

Another good choice of a centralised and affordable hotel banquet location! Novotel Singapore Clarke Quay offers 2 newly furnished ballrooms for choice which are away from the hotel’s crowds.


For a medium sized banquet, consider the Cinnamon Ballroom which is able to hold 18 to 24 tables. Located on the 5th floor, Cinnamon Ballroom has a relatively high ceiling of 3.3m with a straight march in for brides. Screens are on each side of the stage in front so majority of your guests (besides those blocked by the pillar on the right) will be able to get a good view of the screen.

For larger banquets, choose the Phoenix Grand Ballroom which is able to hold 30 to 45 tables. The nesthouple likes the grand yet modern feel of the pillarless ballroom brought out by its 5m high ceiling, chic chandeliers and tastefully coloured carpeting.

What the nesthouple likes about Novotel is the option for outdoor solemnisation (located just outside the Cinnamon Ballroom on the 5th floor) with a great view of the city! Couples who like outdoor solemnisations can opt to do so at an additional cost ranging from $500 to $900, depending on the choice of solemnisation decoration theme. Fresh flowers are used for the decoration, hence the cost!

Complimentary indoor solemnisation is available at the Clove Room for about 30 pax just outside the Cinnamon Ballroom. This is the default indoor solemnisation set up. Alternatively, you can choose to use your banquet decoration theme 🙂
