Perfection for our Honeymoon
Everything from top to bottom was fantastic. The staff couldn’t have been friendlier and more welcoming. Balfour Kitchen has the best food on our trip; period. (We ate there twice)

We will return!
Our whole experience was delightful. The staff was first rate and always helpful. Breakfast was excellent. The atmosphere was lovely, as well as the grounds. Our room was immaculate and comfortable. We were within 20 minutes walking distance of cafes and bars. We would definitely stay there again.

Luxurious oasis in the heart of New Farm, Brisbane
I highly recommend the Spicers Balfour Hotel in Brisbane. I recently stayed there for several nights while visiting my daughter in Brisbane. The staff went out of their way to make me feel comfortable, and to help in any way they could. My room was bright, clean, and stylish. The restaurant is excellent, and the view from the roof top bar is absolutely beautiful. After staying in several other hotels in Brisbane, The Spicers Balfour is now my first choice!

Lovely stay at the Spicers Balfour
Absolutely gorgeous hotel with beautiful Art Deco touches. Breakfast was delicious. However, location was a bit isolated and a bit far from the CBD.

Good 6.0
Great room but located in noisy part of hotel.
I got a good rate online, but that meant I was put in the room next to the stairs and entrance and kitchen. Very noisy all afternoon and very early in the morning. I don’t recommend staying in room 7!

Very Good 8.0
Better than the first impression
Upon arrival we were underwhelmed. Dingy downstairs reception was a poor start and the staff for checking in were not available. Parking was a problem as there were no available positions at the hotels (two) or in the street. Getting into and out of the parking area for the hotel (and nearby suites) was not easy when finding every spot was taken. We expressed our difficulty in parking only to be told parking would be better at the other address. It was not. In the end we were left stranded without parking at the hotel or in the street. Did anyone care? No. We were surprised that we were not staying at the address of 37 Balfour Street. In fact a few doors away. Entering our room which was noisy, dark and smelt of must, we were disappointed. The fridge and coffee making area was difficult to use. Not a great start. However, the hotel did grow on us after getting accustomed to facilities and decor we did not expect. The position of the hotel was not exactly classy or inviting. Shops were within a reasonable walk and the walk to the river was easy. Our expectations were much higher and not met. The bed was comfortable and we were able to close internal doors to almost overcome the noise and provide complete darkness. Having breakfast at the main building gave a far better perspective of the hotel. Breakfast was first class and the staff likewise. The building at 37 Balfour Street too also created a feeling more in line with the tariff and hotel description. Noise a problem.
