“Perfect Anniversary ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

From the staff to the room to the roof top bar and the restaurant for an anniversary dinner and breakfast this little boutique hotel was an excellent stay.
Relaxing stay at the end of a heck trip, no need to leave once we arrived. Will be on the list of places to stay in Brisbane going forward. Well appointed room with a tub to stretch out in and soak.

Stayed January 2017, travelled as a couple

Set back from busy Brunswick Street in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, the Balfour has taken an old Queenslander and converted it to a luxury small hotel. Rooms are small but superbly fitted in contemporary designs, themed in black grey and white. Meals are served on the balcony, and on tropical summer days and nights the frangipani blooms make you feel you are in a luxury sub-tropical paradise.

In recent times, Spicers have added the Simla, two doors up to give more accommodation options.

Parking can be challenging.

We stayed in Suite 13 at Spicers Balfour Hotel. It was absolutely superb. Faultless. The bed was a dream (excuse the pun) the furnishings and fittings excellent. Equal to any thing in Europe. The breakfast which was included in the tarrif was one of the best we have had.The special way the eggs were cooked were great and the BACON was fantastic.

Room Tip: Suite 13 is very spacious.

Such a special hotel, absolutely gorgeous, filled with every single item you could possibly need. Slept like a baby in the extremely comfortable bed. It has a beautiful bathroom and lounge area, with a small terrace. Very good location - you can walk everywhere.

I loved this hotel. We stayed here last minute having been delayed on a flight. Our greeting was really warm and although our room was small the bed was very comfortable. The honesty bar on the terrace was a really cool touch. We grabbed drinks as it suited us and it felt like a really sensible solution for a boutique hotel. Breakfast had some options I'd never seen on a breakfast menu before which was fun. Highly recommend.
