    Excellent inner city location. Very comfortable facilities. Easy access to Brisbane River walks. Breakfast facilities were top class. Good views over city from roof top bar. Would recommend for a relaxing time.

    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.

    Thank Robert L

    If you want somewhere to retreat to and don't want to travel too far, you can't go passed the Balfour! We had a fabulous time celebrating our anniversary! Can't fault the service, the food and the atmosphere! It's a hidden treasure!

    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
