“Amazing food, excellent service, beautiful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

My husband and I stayed for two nights just before Easter. We booked very late through Wotif and so were lucky to get the last room (spa suite) available. There are a number of levels of accommodation, including a self-contained cottage suitable for larger groups, sited on a very picturesque estate complete with established gardens, walking trails and its own waterfall.
Staff are extremely professional - welcoming, well-trained and helpful. We had one of the 5 course degustation menus available for dinner and would highly recommend it. The food is sophisticated and truly to die for. Decor is a soothing palette of modern french-influenced soft blues, greys and neutrals. The only downside was that the views from our room weren't the greatest as they looked over the service area. The facial and a massage I had at the spa was one of the best I have ever experienced. Overall, highly recommended.

Room Tip: Book early and ask for a room with a clear view over the valley. Some rooms facing the back of the b...

Although professionally organised, it was just all so relaxing. Weather was
kind to us for our family get together and the wedding of our son David to
Jodi. Beautiful garden setting for the wedding. Absolutely did not want to
leave. Will definitely visit Spicer's in the future.

Recently stayed 2 nights at this wonderful resort it is truly 5* with the rooms and service outstanding. Had all the little extras you expect in this type of property -plush bedding, heated floor in the bathroom with heated towel rack. Such a delight as the weather was cool. There were books in the room to read and lovely fluffy bathrobe and complimentary slippers.
I ate in the restaurant both nights and had a couple of wonderful meals. All in all a very enjoyable stay at a wonderful resort.

Room Tip: Take a ground floor room so you don't have to drag your bag upstairs

A beautiful place to stay for the night. We stayed after having engagement photos at Maleny. Rooms lovely, service was the best we have received at any Australian hotel. Only very small negative was a lack of privacy from the deck off our room. Breakfast was delicious and looked over an amazing view.

It is truly the ideal place to celebrate everything that’s special in life, especially a wedding! Our French-provincial architecture certainly does offer a unique romantic feel to the property.

Exceptional venue, beautiful grounds, high quality finishings, friendly service. A very relaxing weekend. One night simply not long enough, two should be your minimum stay. Day Spa delightful. Breakfast was our very favourite meal of the stay.
