Brilliant Boutique Brisbane Hotel

We had a very warm and welcoming stay at Spicers Balfour. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The room lovely and all we needed for a quick one night stay. It was fantastic to be able to head up to the roof top bar to take in the view and have a quick drink before heading out. Breakfast the next morning was wonderful.
