We stayed two nights in this wonderful hotel. The general manager and his staff made our stay really amazing. Delicious food, good location, eco friendly amenities, it really made us feel at home. Nice small roofterrace and lovely garden. We highly recommend this hotel.

Spicers Balfour is a hidden gem. Excellent facilities and sensational team. Their "modern Australian" restaurant with an Asian theme is outstanding. Definitely on our must return list. Just love the retro Balfour suite.

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
