We had a weekend away and wanted a small boutique style place. The Balfour exceeded all expectations. Amazing rooms, very good attention to detail with everything and we had dinner and breakfast at the Balfour Kitchen and the room was incredible. All the staff were very friendly and super helpful. Cannot fault anything.

We hired one of the suites for our wedding night and it was beautifully appointed and spacious. The location was also ideal for us being close to our wedding reception. Breakfast was fabulous and included some creative options. Off-street carparking is a bonus in an area where street parking can be a challenge. The negative for us with this stay...

We went here with a voucher from the entertainment book and paid a good price for a mid week room. We had a fantastic room and then some drinks up on the roof. In the morning the breakfast was fabulous and offered everything we needed and didn't know we needed ;)

We had stayed at and really enjoyed Spicers Properties in the past and decided to stay here for our very short stay in Brisbane. Glad we did....The suite was very comfortable and the bathroom was roomy. We were meeting friends so didn't get to have dinner but the very tasty breakfast on the balcony was delightful in the winter sunshine...
