The service was as always fantastic and it is so cool to be remembered like you are a family member. I thought i would treat myself to... More

The service was exceptional from start to finish. The onsite restaurant, Botanica was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed the 5 course degustation and the breakfasts. Nightly cocktails at 6pm delivered to your door was also a treat. On site day spa was also lovely. Only negative was that the bed could have been much more comfortable and next time I would... More

This place has it all. It is a small hotel with friendly and professional staff. The rooms were clean, spacious and well appointed with open fires and a bottle of champayne on arrival. Breakfast each morning at the Botanica Restaurant was delightful. We also tried the restaurant one night for dinner and found it a great experience with fabulous food.... More

Hotel is very nice. However, they gave a room rate, required immediate payment and then rang back later and said sorry, you have to pay more. Food is of a good standard, spa is pleasant and it is well located and peaceful.

Having stayed at another Spicer property a couple of times we were keen to stay at another. The Hunter Valley property lived up to our previous Spicer's experience with wonderful, personal service, attention to detail and clean, exceptionally comfortable rooms with a much appreciated supply of firewood for real fires (not gas!) and beautiful coffee table books, Nespresso Machine, heated...

The weekend we just spent at Spicers in the Hunter Valley was exceptional. The food was incredible - with good variety & interesting flavours provided by the meals at Botanica restaurant. The degustation dinner was fabulous! The accommodation and service at Spicers is five star. Champagne on ice, open fire and huge bath for two........ We will return.

Spicers is a true luxurious getaway in the Hunter. Rooms are spacious with a fireplace and many extras including a free mini bar, card and board games and a cocktail hour. Staff are thorough and friendly. Spa Anise is very relaxing and staff very professional, friendly ad knowledgable. Restaurant Botanica is excellent with a great chef and brilliant staff throughout.

We enjoyed two wonderful nights at the Spicers Vineyards Estate during winter this year. What a beautiful place to be in and around. We arrived with high expectations which were exceeded in so many ways in terms of comfort, cleanliness and the facilities provided. We had the most delightful meals and were very impressed with the quality of the cuisine,... More
