Fodor's Review

With service, style and hospitality above and beyond the call of duty, Spicers Balfour is a distinctly local, disarmingly welcoming experience, perfect for weary travelers looking for a home away from home. Fondly nicknamed The Grand Lady, the elegant, nine-room hotel is housed inside a traditional Queenslander mansion, complete with flowing verandas, tropical gardens, and breezy river views. Wake to a fresh, gourmet breakfast in the sunny restaurant foyer, or relax with complimentary sunset canapés on the rooftop bar overlooking the original tin and timber of the city. The sleekly designed suites boast nothing but the finest in European decor and fittings, and Balfour's soft robes and luxury in-house massages are perfect to sink into after a long day's sightseeing. Tuesday through Saturday, The Balfour Kitchen serves alfresco Mod Oz cuisine on the candlelit verandas, but a smorgasbord of trendy restaurants are only a stone's throw away.
