I am a Travel Agent and stayed in many hotels but Spicers Balfour is quite unique! The whole experience was fantastic - Dinning, Rooms and Service. Our room was beautiful with a huge verandah where you could have your breakfast and listen to the birds

I would highly recommend Spicers Balfour. The rooms are beautifully decorated and have a sophisticated/romantic feel. Staff are very friendly and healpful. Great location, off the main road but close to many cafes and restaurants.

Quiet and intimate the Spicers Balfour was a perfect 10 for our 3rd wedding anniversary. We were made to feel special and unique amongst several other guests both staying and diners. I would highly recommend anyone looking for an intimate dinner/stay to try it out! Rooftop bar was something special even in the rain!

A little oasis at the city edge - top class food and warm service from interested staff. The quality bedding combined with gourmet inclusions and honour bar makes for a relaxing few days. Recommended for foodies and that special occasion out in Brisbane.

For 3 nights we enjoyed a great alternative to the repetitive major city hotels. Spicers is in a quiet street in trendy New Farm. A multitude of restaurants, cafes and shops within walking distance. The centre of Brisbane a quick bus or ferry away. Our Executive Room was larger than expected and cleverly designed to feel spacious with a subtle... More

We stayed two nights at this hotel and they were among the most enjoyable in any hotel in which we have stayed. Everything about Spicers Balfour was classy. It is a boutique hotel with a warm, friendly atmosphere, made special by the outstanding service. The restaurant is excellent. It is also well located in upmarket New Farm, which is a... More

Excellent choice for a visit to Brisbane Small boutique Hotel near the City, with a relaxed atmosphere and an excellent service. The food is truly "gourmet" quality, both at Breakfast or Dinner. The staff is highly qualified and very helpful

This was our first stay in a Spicers and we were definitely not disappointed and will be back. Unfortunately it was only an overnight city getaway but we felt relaxed within minutes of arriving. Lovely details, finishing touches and superior service made for a beautiful relaxing weekend and the quality of the dining at the Balfour Kitchen was excellent.

Our first experience at a Spicers Property was surprisingly good. We found the staff especially helpful and friendly during our two day stay and they all went out of their way to make our stay a great experience.
