I stayed here for 5 nights in November. Food and wine were very good. There are good walking trails around the resort. Staff are helpful. Plenty of activities for kids. Internet is free. However, I did not find the pillows comfortable. Most mornings i woke up with a sore neck. Several of my friends had the same complaint.

Perfect wine farm experience with loads of history. One of the eldest working wine farms in the Cape with a very interesting green print approach. Really a model farm with great concern and effort to protect nature and our resources. The bird sanctuary and rehabilitation center is a must see attraction and put even more emphasis on the fact that... More

In general, South African hotel accommodation is ridiculously expensive and when I knew I had to find somewhere to stay for a wedding in Stellenbosch I wasn't expecting any exceptions... and then Spier happened. The hotel is laid out villa-style, with a row of upstairs and downstairs suites lining several avenues and forming a courtyard, each oif which contains a... More
