What a place! Of all of the hotels we stayed in on our trip to Knysna for our wedding, this was by far the best. The staff on reception were great and handled my family well (all 17 of us) checking in. They took charge of our bags and ensured that everything was in the correct room for when my... More

Great location, we were very well looked after, good verity of food for breakfast, we thoroughly enjoyed out three days and could easily have stayed longer. Spend time around the pool and order lunch, what a treat.

This was our second stay and we loved every moment. We were attending a conference and most days there were also large tour groups but the place never seemed crowded – not even at dinner or breakfast. Staff at reception and in the dining hall is simply super. Always a smile and nothing is too big an issue. The grounds... More

We were touring the Western Cape and stayed at The Spier Hotel for just one night in late February 2015 and had a really enjoyable stay. In fact we wished that we had added an extra night.The food and service for our breakfast and evening meal were excellent. The room was tastefully styled and well appointed with a large double...

We chose this hotel as our Stellenbosch base for our trip to the wine area and very glad we did. We were given an amazingly big room (although we did think it would have benefitted from a chest of drawers - it definitely had the space - and more coat hangers) with its own patio leading onto a small pool...

A short 20 minute drive from CPT airport takes you to the lovely Spier Estate. From the outset we were warmly welcomed by all the reception staff and we immediately felt we had made the right choice to start off our visit to the Wine lands area, before heading to Hermanus and Cape Town. The room was lovely with a... More

We spent three very good days here with a 2yr old & 4yr old. They were very well catered for, with a free Childrens Club open from 8am - 8pm and then babysitting facilities in the evening (c. £6/hr). Lots of space for them to run around in and lots of things to do (they loved the farm and the... More

I celebrated my birthday at Spier and had a good of friends stay. I have been staying at Spier for the past decade - and I am never disappointed. The facilities are beautiful, the staff very friendly - and the atmosphere just marvellous! Definitely worth a visit.
