What a gem of a hotel and cannot fault the service and the food is seriously brilliant! This is within walking distance to the city and James St, along the way we came across some great little cafes in the area. Thanks for a great weekend Balfour..!!

Thank-you Tony for your feedback, The location of Spicers Balfour is great as you mentioned having all the city has to offer, yet hidden away in the back streets of New Farm. So glad to hear you had an amazing weekend and hope to see you again when you are next in Brisbane. Kind Regards Sam More

The $400 package of dinner for two overnight accommodation and breakfast was a really great deal. The food is excellent, dinner was lovely and it was the nicest breakfast with gourmet choices we have had for years. The rooms are cosy and quiet. The last time we stayed we had a courtyard room which was bigger. Parking isn't undercover but... More

Proper tablecloths, proper service, breakfast that tastes like the chef was actually watching what he/she was doing. Quiet and off the main drag - take the morning paper and graze. Salmon on rosti (proper rosti not potato cake) or cassoulet recommended.

Spicers consistently delivers a high quality product with their special brand of service. From the first greeting to the final farewell my wife and I were made to feel special. I'll be back again with the whole family next time.

Staff were fantastic and it was a great view of the fireworks. I would not however stay here again. I paid extra for the Terrace Suite which was a room with a balcony. Unfortunately the balcony was actually just an extension of the deck and the restaurant and we were separated from people dining by a black pull down divider.... More

We arrived early and were pleased to be allowed an early check in, as after an overnight flight we wanted to take a few hours sleep during the afternoon. This proved difficult as the room we were allocated at the end of the building had a window blind which did not block out the light, we had to hang robes... More

Stayed for business but it was an absolute pleasure! Best kept secret in Brisbane. I entertained locals who had never heard of it but will be going there again now they know about it. Really good amenities close by too and only a short drive to the CBD.

Overall I was very impressed with the hotel and standard of service. The only real problem encountered during my stay was that my room was noisy very early in the morning with what sounded like staff starting their shifts.
