We like windows that open. We hate air conditioning. The neighbourhood is quiet enough to have windows open at night. I wish we could have had a cup of tea after the theatre after midnight but the hot water thing was turned off. Hmm.. I understand it was to prevent it from making a noise at night. I wonder if...

We chose the Balfour after reading previous TA reports and they weren't wrong! From the minute you are greeted at the door by the delightful Yolande you are made to feel special. The room was comfortable and had all the latest mod cons including a cold and hot water instant machine, a nespresso machine and the bed lights are uber... More

We chose Balfour as an alternative to the modern big box hotels we regularly frequent. The experience was unique, staff were excellent, and dining superb. It had a hint of a B&B feel, but in premium style. Our only gripe is that we didn't book in for longer! Thank you to Sam & the team for your offering, we will... More

Staying at Spicers Balfour in Brisbane was a real highlight for me and has been the most enjoyable hotel experience I've had to date. It is certainly a 5 star boutique hotel with exceptional service, delicious food, comfortable beds, and a fully-stocked bar (with views of the bridge).

Our second stay for a night away - this time it was our anniversary and we took the romantic getaway package. All the staff were charming, the cleanliness and state of our room was perfect and the food is exceptional. We will be back! Thanks for a lovely night

Had our first experience of a Spicer's property at the Balfour. Arrived at 4.45pm and managed to snag the last car park. Very tight fit so you had better be good at reversing. Welcomed warmly by Sam. The room was fine, we have stayed at plenty of 5 star hotels and understood that this would be a more boutique style... More
