Fantastic location and feels like a home away from home. So close to James street for shopping and dining. Wonderful concierge staff that made us feel very welcome.
We only stayed for one night and thought it a little expensive but a lovely experience all the same.

A great place to stay and a beautiful spot for a morning walk along the river!
The room was very clean and comfortable and the staff were fantastic and very accommodating. Certainly a great place to stay for a special time away.
The tv kept coming on automatically in the middle of the night?

Beautiful inner city spot
Beautiful building and room was very nicely styled. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
We had a drink in the restaurant upstairs and the music was far too loud, especially considering we were the only ones there (weekday afternoon). The volume was turned down on request however

Beautiful place
Comfortable bed. Friendly staff. Beautiful buildings and suite. Wonderful rooftop bar with view of the bridge. Close walk to the wharf. Wonderful restaurant
The shower was difficult to use the shower head as the wall connection didnt hold the hand held shower head well. Would have liked some extra towels

Very clean room. Comfortable bed. Close to the Brisbane river Boardwalk. Excellent Restaurant.
The room was very noisy. You could hear the dishes being washed in the kitchen after the dinner service. The rooms need to be soundproof. There were a couple of lights that were not working. The fridge was leaking and did not keep our food cold.

Very Disappointing
The magnifying mirror in the bathroom was the highlight of our stay...... honestly. Waiter accommodated our request to find a quiet location to relax as our room was unacceptably loud from restaurant guests outside our balcony. Room 1 shares the veranda with the restaurant.
Our room was well below what we have come to expect from Spices resorts. There was rubbish in the cupboard from the previous guests. The teapot lid was broken. Bathroom vanity handles were broken or very loose. The iron had been packed away and full of dirty water ready for the next unsuspecting guest. Glass cloche and plate were left in our room dirty for 3 days. Room.1 Shares the balcony with the kitchen & bar. Therefore there was absolutely no privacy or quiet times throughout our 3 nights. Then there was the noise coming from the rooftop cocktail bar Saturday which didn't ease up until midnight. During breakfast I had to go and ask at the bar for another coffee which was very annoying because when our breakfast was placed on our table my coffee cup was already empty. Both times we ate at the restaurant over the weekend there were only 2 couples dining in. Dinner Sunday night was very underwhelming even got the idea from staff that Sunday menu was basic. The waitstaff were hanging around our table and constantly chatting with us and making small talk not allowing us the quality time together. I was asked 3 times in the booking and confirmation process "was our weekend celebrating a special occasion", to which I answered "yes" 25th Wedding anniversary. To be honest I had expected some sort of special gesture to help us celebrate. I had received generous gifts and treats at 2 other Spicers restaurants and resorts in the past.
