We stayed here at the end of our holiday as it is within easy reach of the airport. staff are excellent and food was superb not to mention the wines! Great place to relax and do nothing for a day or 2.

SPier is a fantastic venue to take children. My grandchildren are 8 and 5 and just loved it. The garden Terrace Rooms are excellent for them as the have a wonderful private are to run around.

Spier has so much to offer culturally, historically, aesthetically. I wish we'd had a week to spend there rather than just our one-night respite on a month-long South African tour. I still dream about the works of art that are an integral part of the Spier experience. If I were allowed but one word to describe the many aspects of... More

We booked for just one night at the Spier WIne Estate and I wish we had booked for longer. The rooms are excellent, the breakfast is amazing and the picnic is great. We chose Spier because our daughter in-law used to go there when she was at Stellenbosch University. We pre-booked a picnic for when we arrived in mid-afternoon and... More

We were here for new years and the grounds are beautiful! The rooms have massive beds ( well ours did) and the food offering was good. I would definitely go back to this hotel as the price was brilliant for what they offer. The only thing they could work on is the restaurant service, some waiters were exceptional and others...

Rooms were either up or down and located in a village-like setting with separate buildings holding several to a few rooms. Great wine tasting available,... More

Hotel restaurant didn't disappoint. Very nice pork belly starter. Best chocolate fondant I've ever had. Venison main a little tough but good taste. I'd recommend for anyone to experience this restaurant.

The rooms are big, if you have problems going up stairs, mention to the reservation staff and ask for a room on the ground floor. There is plenty to do, especially enjoyed the Segway ride around the vineyards. Good food and good wine.

Spier is always a treat and the grounds are magnificent. The rooms are in need of a slight revamp as they are looking a little tired. The service at all touch points was excellent and staff went our of their way to make our stay more comfortable
