Not as good as it used to be

Posted Aug 1, 2015
Pros: Lovely staff. Cosy sitting area with fire - lovely winter location. Also great as a summer location.
Cons: Bathrooms need to be upgraded.
Location: Eagle Encounters, Wine Tasting, Nice walks. Would not recommend more than a 2 night stay though.
We haven't stayed in Spier for 13 years and haven't visited for 9 years, so this was a bit disappointing in some respects. I found a deal on Expedia and it seemed great value for money. There isn't as much to do here as there used to be, but Eagle Encounters was still great and we were unfortunate that the weather was bad so we couldn't enjoy the grounds more. Staff were fantastic, very friendly and welcoming. Restaurant and bar were good. I still love the huge fire that they have in the sitting area - perfect to sit around and relax on a wintery night! The only issues were the condition of the room, especially the bathroom. We were upgraded and the room was wonderful, but not especially clean, and the bathroom really needed some TLC - old, tired and grubby. Also, when the room was turned down for the night, the rubbish bins had been emptied on a table - obviously someone had forgotten to pick the rubbish up afterwards! The main issue was that there was an SA Government conference of some sort taking place. In the room above, some of the delegates were obviously meeting for drinks. We thought the noise would be short-lived, but it got worse and worse - singing, shouting until 4am in the morning, so we didn't sleep well. We considered mentioning in the morning, but it was too late by then and it really wasn't the hotel's fault. All in all, good in parts and I wouldn't rule it out for a stay, but not the luxury experience I remember.

Great staff, location and Culinary Haven

Posted Jun 9, 2015
Upon arrival the receptionist took note that it was our anniversary, by the time we went to the room there was a Chenin Blanc (my favourite wine) and a card signed by the GM to congratulate our celebration. What remarkable service this was, since our booking was made minutes before arrival. The location is wonderful if your interested in visiting all the close-by Vineyards. We will definitely return soon.

Late April 2015 stay

Posted May 3, 2015 on Hotels
Stayed for 2 nights and did not have time to take many of the activities on offer. Good wine tasting session and quality of food was excellent. During the colder evenings, the coal effect fire was of great use. Rooms need upgrading, but this is in process. Excellent location.

Tolles Frühstück!!!

Das Hotel hat Dorfcharakter. Unser Zimmer war in einem "Reihenhaus". Zusammen mit 6 anderen "Reihenhäsuern" hatten wir einen schönen Innenhof-Garten mit Liegestühlen und einem keinen Pool.

This place is truly spectacular. It well and truly exceeded expectations. The scenery is stunning, as is the architecture of the hotel. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Would love to visit again!

our stay at Spier Hotel.

We booked a room on the terrace, but we were given a room on the ground floor. That was disappointing. The toilet did not flush properly. Nevertheless, we had a good stay. The kids loved it.
