Out of the way, punching above it's weight

Posted Mar 30, 2014 on Hotels.com
A nice hotel but priced as a luxury 5 star, and in reality it's just a small hotel with a good restaurant (although so good that breakfast takes over an hour to arrive as they're serving the locals who book tables first). Pool mentioned in description on some sites, does not exist. Air con and hot water switched off at midnight - air con you can fiddle with to reactivate, hot water tap (for drinks) is off. Complained and a kettle was supplied! No fridge in room. Some mini bar items out of date. Location is on a residential street (it is a converted old large house) and a car is needed to go into town - no local attractions near by.

Impeccable Service

Posted Dec 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
Stayed here on our first night in QLD and it was a great intro to Brisbane. Easy to find by hire car (parking was a little tight, but who cares), welcome was very friendly and the high level of service was consistent throughout our short stay. The quality of the hotel was enough on it's own for me to hope I can return to Brisbane for a longer period, and really get to relax for a few days at the Balfour.

Boutique hotel a little out of the way

Posted Sep 1, 2013
Pros: Rooftop bar and friendly staff...
Cons: Rooms need a refrigerator and light switching needs to better layed out.
Location: About a 15/20 minute walk to the train and taxi fares a little high, be prepared to utilise the local eateries and walks.
Nice boutique hotel but facilities can't match those of the larger premises. I unfortunately got one of the ground floor rooms (disabled room) with no windows so had to rely on opening the back door but with a wall obstructing any possible view I'm glad I'm not claustrophobic. The staff are great and the roof top bar, even thou you don't get a chance to use it for long is very nice and a pleasant and comfortable area for a quick breather....

Three Small Steps from Perfection!

Posted Jul 4, 2013
Pros: Overall feel and presentation of the hotel
Cons: Lack of precise housekeeping
Location: Very well located on the Brisbane city fringe, 10 mins access to the city. Also within a short walk to some very good restaurants.
My wife and I stayed for two nights on 26/26 June 2013 and found this hotel to be almost (but not quite) perfect. It is a small, very quiet, boutique hotel with excellent room, bar and restaurant facilities and is ideal for couples and single business people rather than families. The hotel is located 50 metres from the local bus stop, giving 10 mins access to the city and beyond. Also within a short walk to some very good restaurants. Our only gripes were related to some room cleanliness issues - my pillow was stained on arrival and even though I left it in a prominent position for housekeeping to replace the next morning, the pillow was put back on the bed with the stain showing! Also, a great little NesExpresso machine was in the room but the coffee pods from the previous occupant had not been removed. The in-room safe had an earing from the previous occupant which we gave to the front desk. All of these are small but important housekeeping issues which should not occur in the hotel of this obvious quality and standard. Am I being picky? you decide! Would we return? Absolutely!
