The attention to detail is evident everywhere, from the charming rooftop bar to the almost Great Gatsby like décor.
The location of the hotel puts it is within walking distance of several of Brisbane's best restaurants and bars, shops and the wonderful New Farm Park. There is a lovely river walk right on the doorstep - a great way to wake up before tucking into breakfast. Guests love the rooftop bar and love the canapés and drinks served there at sunset even more, it is a wonderful way to start your evening before heading to the Balfour Kitchen for dinner or to the lively dining scene found in New Farm.
Being a small boutique hotel, all the rooms are individually designed. Despite not being the biggest, they are anything but lacking in comfort and amenities. The Balfour Kitchen is a destination restaurant in Brisbane and guests get priority. Breakfast is a particularly enjoyed, with some real Aussie specialties populating the delicious menu, washed down with the freshest juices and fantastic coffee.
The rooms have been designed by Coopcreative, Brisbane's award-winning design team so it's no surprise that each one has its own quirky personality and style. There is one Terrace Room, three Courtyard Rooms and five Executive Rooms. They have spacious bathrooms, luxury toiletries, internet facilities and work spaces.

When to go
Winter (June-Aug) is high season in Queensland; the water can be chilly - at least to Australians - but its temperature rarely drops below 22°C. April through October is peak visibility time for divers. Summer is hot and sticky across the state. In North Queensland the monsoonal Wet season is from November or December through March or April. It brings heavy rains, high temperatures, extreme humidity, and cyclones. It's no problem to visit then, and the Wet or "Green" season allows an unusual opportunity to explore this region during a truly balmy time of monsoonal calms.
