Great service. Lovely retreat in the inner city. Make sure you enjoy a drink at the roof top bar. Perfect alternative to a big inner city hotel. Breakfast was yummy. My husband and I look forward to returning to the Balfour, and discovering the other hotels in the Spicers network.

Spicers Balfour is a small boutique hotel in the heart of Brisbane. We were treated like royalty by the amazing staff there, had our own private balcony, the most comfortable bed in the world, delicious food and bath products.

A wonderful surprise to find this place, quite a change from the CBD experience. Attentive staff, marvellous food and comfortable room and facilities. Lovely intimate rooftop bar. Well worth considering, especially if you're looking for something a wee bit different.

A quaint resort which is a rare combination of luxurious accommodation and old style hospitality. The cuisine is divine and the self service rooftop bar is a relaxing way to end the day. A must stay for sure!

ABC am 1026 Charming, central and private location. Exceptional service. Our room was lovely, perfect quiet place to unwind after travel. The view from the Rooftop Bar of the Storey Bridge is stunning and a perfect place enjoy a cocktail in the evening. Breakfast was the excellent way to start the day. We'll be back!

A great place to relax while Brisbane gets on with being busy. The chefs really know how to prepare food and the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooftop bar is a bonus but keep the chairs rain free.
