We very much enjoyed our stay at Spicers Balfour in Brisbane. A small boutique hotel that’s a little bit special. Friendly staff, large comfortable rooms, ideally situated in New Farm close to the city and all amenities.

We had such a great break away. The perfect place to chillout or explore New Farm, the Valley, City or new Howard St Wharves which are probably 100m from the property. The rooms are amazing and if you can stay in a suite, do it....More
