    Outstanding! Well appointed rooms that had been updated but retained character. Location is in a quiet neighbourhood but still near central urban bustle. Superb breakfast included. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great introduction to our Australian visit.

    A quick overnight stay at Spicers Balfour. You can easily walk to the city from this location. The staff are very lovely and helpful. The inhouse restaurant is highly recommended for dinner and breakfast. The rooms are spacious.

    Hi Anna, maybe ask Spicers directly. Even though the number of hotel rooms is small, the restaurant is open to the public and they also cater for functions. They are probably use to dietary requests. All the best, Jane
