This hotel has excellent dining and the service is tremendous. The beds ensure a good night's sleep. The library was a nice place to relax. Some quirks like no fridge in the room but overall a pleasant experience

First of all-the view from the rooftop bar is AWESOME! The hotel is so chill and laid-back. It's so nice to go into a such a chill hotel and not one that is uptight and snooty. The "tabs" there are simple. Write down your hotel room number and then write down what you drank or borrowed. Simple and easy. The... More

I really think you got to capture all what we are about ' Relaxed Luxury'. We Look forward to welcoming you back... More

We stayed here overnight whilst moving house. The staff were incredibly helpful. The rooms are clean and modern with no great view. But the location is brilliant for the valley new farm area and handy to public transport and the river. The restaurant was great the menu offers modern cuisine and was extremely tasty. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

I was recently very lucky to be invited to dine at the Chefs in the City event, with chefs from Spicers Tamarind cooking their dishes at Spicers Balfour and enjoyed sitting out on the beautiful verandah. I loved the touch of the luxurious soft blanket, as it was a little cold, I was able to rug up and feel comfortable.... More

In the heart of an up and coming area in Brisbane, lies this little bit of luxury. A small boutique hotel with a handful of rooms, it was truly one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had. The rooms are large with comfortable beds and a well equipped bathroom, as well as having free wifi in the rooms.... More

Room small but all mod cons squeezed in. Care needed negotiating your way into the room, or onto the toilet! Very comfortable bed with top quality linen. Auto boiling/iced water tap an unnecessary addition especially when the boiler for the installation fires up at 5am, sounding like a jet engine in our room! Sound insulation poor from the corridors and... More

Great little oasis in New Farm, Brisbane, it's the best of both worlds. So close to the CBD - you can walk or cycle along the river or it's a small cab fare. The property is just off Brunswick street so there is lots of cafes, restaurants, good, coffee and services. James street is not far as well so there... More

Property was close to the city. Possible to walk or a cheap cab fare. Room a little small and there is no fridge in the room but common areas are open and welcoming. The food was good and the staff were excellent.
