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. (Who needs modern when you can have this). The veranda was fabulous. We sat there for hours watching the birds and listing to the trains go by and hooting,... More

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...

I enjoyed my stay at the Stellenbosch very much as I was in attendance with a group of runners. I opted for a Signature Riverside Terrace Room, which was advertised as a room that has an overlook of the Eerste River, so I assumed that I would actually see the river. Okay, I'll admit to being literalist, but I couldn't... More

This was one of the most beautiful hotels we've stayed in. Each unit is a very large cottage with a gas-jet fireplace, which the staff was very happy to start for us and get us settled in. The room was very spacious with a sitting area, large updated bathroom with shower and bathtub, double doors at the back that opened... More

My wife and I have been returning to this great relaxing getaway each year in our anniversary. Rooms and grounds great, food terrific and service number 1! The riverside rooms are the nicest and quietest but the whole hotel is an experience worth going there for. A real getaway location.

I stayed at this hotel on business but luckily I had brought my husband with me so we ended up having a romantic getaway. Country charm, great food, fantastic wine selection. They have a pregnancy massage which they don't advertise on their webpage so take note mamas to be. Highly recommended!
