    Spicers Balfour is a gem of a hotel tucked in between the city and the Valley. Successfully marrying luxury with comfort; from the fitout to the service. Complemented by superb dining. We will most certainly return.

    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
