Fodor's Review

With service, style, and hospitality above and beyond the call of duty, this hotel is a distinctly local and wonderfully welcoming experience, perfect for weary travelers looking for a home away from home. Fondly nicknamed "the Grand Lady," this elegant boutique hotel has nine suites housed inside a traditional Queenslander mansion, complete with flowing verandas, tropical gardens, and breezy river views; as well an additional eight, much larger "Balfour Suites," including a lounge and function room, in an adjacent art deco building. Wake to a fresh, gourmet breakfast in the sunny restaurant foyer and frangipani garden, or relax with complimentary sunset canapés on the rooftop bar overlooking the original tin and timber rooftops of the city. Each night The Balfour Kitchen serves impressive Mod Oz cuisine on the candlelit verandas, but a smorgasbord of trendy restaurants are only a stone's throw away. Balfour's soft robes and in-house massages are perfect to sink into after a long day's sightseeing.
