I had stayed a month ago at Spicers Balfour I booked a courtyard room (the larger version) I thought it was decorated lovely and spotless. The let down came to the noise and lack of soundproofing you hear nothing but doors slamming shut and staff and guests trapsing up and down the wooden stairs and hall you hear every conversation and every footstep. It is very unfortunate as because of this as I wont be returning. I think something could be done to improve this by either carpeting the floors, and getting better door hinges. Unfortunatly the layout of the hotel is not very good as the central point is the reception/restaraunt and access to rooftop bar has you hearing everything so dont count on peacefullness. Also I would like to add the courtyard rooms are divided by a screen so unfortunatly I had noisy ameriacan guests next to my room who opened up there doors wide, they spoke so loud and tv noise was terrible plus they smoked. All in all lovely interior but soundproofing big let down.
