Short Overnight Stay
Atmosphere and Dining
We had a late check in for a short overnight stay before our flight back to Asia. Staff very friendly and attentive. Dinner was good but breakfast was better-more options to chose from. Only disappointment was the noise outside the room from the kitchen and restaurant until 11pm at night.

Overnight stay
The breakfast, the amenities in the room, friendly service.
Hassle free. I booked the last room available the day before, which was a courtyard room, which was perfectly fitted out with all the amenites, including cold and boiling hot drinking water and expresso machine. Being on the ground floor, it was a little dark inside, so I needed to have all the lights on. It was only a kilometre from Newfarm park, so easy walking distance to the park and other restaurants/cafes. It is what I expect for that price range.

Very pleasant
Quiet Convenient Low-key
Our second stay at Spicers Balfour. The room was very comfortable - especially the bed. Lovely big bathroom. Very good breakfast - but service is very slow due to a large influx of dining patrons not staying in-house. Sequencing was odd too - my husband's porridge and eggs arrived (finally) at the same time which meant his eggs were cold by the time he had eaten the porridge. We probably should have asked for the eggs to be kept warm, but as we had an appointment to attend, and as we could see how stretched the staff were, we let it pass. Overall a positive experience, but a few tweeks needed to bring it back up to the standard of our previous stay.
