We stayed at the Spier Hotel and visited a few local wineries. After visiting other wineries we stopped into the Spier tasting room. Their wines were as good or better than any others we tasted. Naturally we understand wine tasting is subjective but their wines matched my/our pallets. The hotel has included internet as well as wonderfully large rooms i.e.... More

The staff, the food, rooms, vibe was all amazing! Thank u for your warm welcome. We will be back. It was cold over that weekend but the cosy fireplaces kept us warm. Staff always alert and on the look out to help where they can.

I have stayed a Spier numerous times for conferencing and I must admit I really enjoyed their newly revamped rooms. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and private. The bathrooms are pretty basic, but well serviced with bath salts and soaps. The breakfast has a large variety of fruit which is always great and the warm options were quite delicious. The... More

We spent 3 nights at Spiers and were impressed with the standard of accommodation and service. On arrival we were greeted by a concierge who immediately loaded our cases onto a 'golf' buggy and provided us with a welcome glass of wine. Check in was quick and efficient and we were driven to our room and shown all the features.... More

We stayed for three nights (Room 405). We however wished it could b e for 30 days. The room was spacious and the style minimalistic and spacious with old school charm.

The rooms at Spier are very spacious and clean. The rooms are kept warm by gas fire, making the rooms cosy..... The beds are comfortable. The breakfast is average, but good. The staff is welcoming and friendly. You need to be transported to your room by golf-cart, which is fine if you have time to wait.

We spent just one night at Spier Hotel and would not have wanted to stay longer. While the reception area - bar - restaurant is very nice, our room was definitely below expectations. The style is not well defined; an unsuccessful mix of mediteranean, african and asian decor. Cleanliness doesn't seem to be a priority as we entered the room... More

Only wish we had more time there. Clean, spacious room with fireplace. We received great service and friendly staff. Did not stay long enough to have dinner at restaurant but heard from other guests it was great.

We had planned my daughter's 21st celebration in Stellenbosch over a number of weeks but left our accommodation reservations to the last minute. Spier Hotel came to the rescue by arranging 3 rooms and then a 4th on the day of our arrival to accommodate our party. We stayed in (and I would highly recommend) the river front ground floor...
