Bygone era luxury in the heart of Brisbane City

Property reviewed by Louise Moulton

Whether your visit to Brisbane is for pleasure, work, wedding or a sneaky staycation; Spicers Balfour Hotel is the perfect hideaway in the heart of the city. Upon arrival, you will be transported back to the elegance and sophistication of the Art Deco period in this beautifully-appointed hotel. Dark timbers of antique furniture and cream sofas beckon you to relax before you head into the city for shopping or sight-seeing. Only 500 metres from Brisbane’s famous Story Bridge and slightly more than a kilometre to bustling Queen Street Mall, you will not be disappointed with your choice of accommodation that offers tranquillity in the city.

Spicers Balfour Hotel offers plush rooms decked out in the rich colours of teal, magenta and gold. An opulent leather chair tucked into the corner could be just the place for you to get a few chapters of your latest book read before your evening’s adventures. Enjoy getting ready for your night out in your ensuite bathroom with its ‘rain maker’ shower and stunning black stone vanity.

Before leaving the hotel, treat yourself to a cocktail up at the rooftop bar while enjoying the city lights of Brisbane, particularly those illuminating Story Bridge. Try to get up to the bar just before the sun sets so you can take advantage of the spectacular bird’s eye view of the sky’s change from tangerine to moody inky blue.

This boutique hotel also offers high tea and a decadent restaurant menu. Pair meticulously prepared dishes with quality wine for a special experience of dining and accommodation all at the one venue. There is luxury in every detail of the hotel ensuring your stay in Brisbane is memorable.
