As the restaurant is close to the upstairs rooms, it is a little noisy during the day & early evening. However, after 10pm they close the fire doors... More

I've stayed at Spicers Bslfour on several occasions, this time with family occupying three of the nine rooms. As always, Spicers Balfour did not disappoint from check in (always friendly), to providing a fruit platter after the kitchen had closed for three of our late arrivals and of-course the sensational breakfast on the verandah. This time I stayed in the... More
