Hand-Picked Hotel

Charming boutique in the heart of Brisbane’s bohemian inner-city suburb, New Farm.

From the moment you catch sight of the ivy-clad entrance to Spicers Balfour Hotel, you’ll know you’ve made the right choice. This beautiful boutique hotel nestles in the inner-city New Farm suburb of Brisbane just a couple of clicks from the Central Business District.

It’s a calm and confident setting complete with towering bamboo and leafy outdoor courtyards. Folk head here to enjoy the peace and quiet as well as the river views from the rooftop bar. Step inside and you’ll discover raw brickwork and wood panelled hallways leading to cosy nooks and 17 select guest rooms and suites.

Thanks to the Balfour Street setting, you’re just steps from the cosmopolitan café culture and bistro restaurants of New Farm. You’ll also find yourself nearby numerous heritage properties including the Village Twin Cinemas and the Langshaw Marble Lime Works.

Spicers Balfour Hotel has become something of a cultural icon in its own right. Where else could you tuck into Vietnamese and French cuisine before heading out to explore. The Balfour Kitchen & Bar offers edgy award-winning fusion food as well as opportunities to dine alfresco on the roof or under the shade of the gently swaying trees in the courtyard.

Local Area

Head north of the Gold Coast in the southeast pocket of Queensland and that’s where you’ll find Brisbane. This is the state’s capital that sits on the banks of the river bearing the

same name. It’s a sprawling inland city, around 45mins from the beach, with an eclectic collection of museums and art galleries many of which are situated on the South Bank.

Head over the river to the North Bank and you’ll discover a world of leafy suburbs and expansive green parks. Places like Roma Street Parkland and New Farm Park are like pure green oases close to the city centre. Stay in the inner-city suburb of New Farm and you can also make the most of the Howard Smith Wharves riverside restaurants and breweries.

From there you’re just a couple of kilometres from the Central Business District where you’ll find the Museum of Brisbane, Anzac Square and Memorial Gardens, and the City Botanic Gardens. Explore further afield and winery trails up in the Tamborine Mountains and river boat rides to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary help to complete a tour, in style.
