Loved it. Only stayed one night due to fully booked corporate hotel. Wish I could stay for the whole trip. The Vietnamese menu was stunning and breakfast lived up to its reputation as the best in town. Beautiful room with best of everything.

My boyfriend and I stayed here 3 nights in May 2018. The room was nice and cozy. Easy and fast checkin. One of the best Brunches I've had in the City! They have bikes there you can ride along the seawall through the city too.

What an exquisite little find in the heart of New farm. From arrival through to departure this place is a mixture of enchantment and 5 star luxury. Do yourself a favour and have a drink at sunset on the rooftop bar. Definitely a highlight. Rooms...More

Hi Anna, maybe ask Spicers directly. Even though the number of hotel rooms is small, the restaurant is open to the public and they also cater for functions. They are probably use to dietary requests. All the best, Jane
