Location

New Farm is quickly becoming one of Brisbane’s trendiest areas and Spicers Balfour is sure to reflect this. The hotel is located near several boutique shopping and dining options on James Street, New Farm. And, in a fifteen minute stroll, you’ll find yourself in the heart of Brisbane, with its gleaming office towers, Queen street mall and department street shopping. For something more cultured, head to the South Bank where you can explore Brisbane’s art and entertainment district with its art galleries and world restaurants.

Accommodation

The rooms are designed for city breaks and, with antique designer furniture and individualised interiors, to reflect the heritage exterior. All rooms are en suite with rainmaker showers and come with in-room Nespresso machines. 50 inch TVs, Bose sound systems and complimentary WiFi bring modern comfort to the hotel’s legacy charm. For a larger bed, book into an Executive King Room or opt for the Balfour Suite in all its 1940s Art Deco glory. Thankfully, for the Australian summer, all accommodation features reverse cycle air-conditioning and opening windows.

Dining

The hotel’s Balfour Kitchen offers a refined dining experience in an intimate setting. Choose to dine inside or under shade cast by Frangipani trees in the property’s private courtyard. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served under the watchful eye of award winning head chef Will Wallace who brings his trademark European flair to a modern Australian menu. Think grilled halloumi, seasonal fresh fruit and cooked breakfasts and, for lunch, everything from smoked salmon to roast duck breast.

For dinner, the restaurant puts on a tasting menu that showcases the best of the kitchen’s techniques and ingredients and can be matched with sommelier-chosen wines. There’s also a private dining room available for special occasions.

Facilities

With a spectacular rooftop bar, the heart of the hotel is firmly in its head. Here, guests are treated to complimentary canapés at 6pm daily with a range of cocktails, wines and beers served to a backdrop of Brisbane’s Story Bridge. Whether unwinding in the hotel’s library, enjoying the sun of its balconies or the shade of its courtyard, there’s something for everyone at Spicers Balfour.
