Set in Brisbane’s trendy New Farm suburb, you’ll find Spicers Balfour, and with it some serious boutique luxury. The in-house spa and yoga classes mean you can really get away from it all, unwind and bask in the glorious Queensland sun.
The central, chic location, gives guests easy access to everything the buzzing city of Brisbane has to offer and all only twenty minutes from the airport. If you’re anything like us, you’ll feel like glitterati making the short walk from the hotel to Brisbane’s snazzy restaurants, bars, and the cutting-edge shops and boutiques. After the sun goes down, the rooftop bar affords views over the city’s shimmering night sky and across to the picturesque Story Bridge.
Developed by an award-winning design team, each of the nine rooms is uniquely styled with quirky individual touches and state-of-the-art Bose sound systems. For that feeling of luxury, snuggle down on the lavish Italian linen after coming in from an alfresco dinner on the authentic ‘Queenslander’, wrap-around verandah. The terrace suite overlooks the garden and ponds, preserving an oasis of tranquillity in the centre of Brisbane.
Why we like it
Other than being chic, plush and situated in the middle of Brisbane’s urbane beating heart, Spicers Balfour is not short on Queensland charm. The selection of exquisite high-teas shows the place has a healthy wad of class. Set in the traditional Queensland building exterior and lay out, Spicers Balfour really is a lesson in how inner-city boltholes should be.
