We stayed only one night but great location to experience Hunter Valley wines, great room, friendly and very helpful service, good breakfast.
Bed was great and having you own log fire in your room adds to the charm of the very clean and warmly decorated room.
We will definitely come back when the new rooms are finished, perfect for a romantic getaway in autumn.

Just returned to WA after spending time at the Spicers Estate. I was there to celebrate with girlfriends our 60th Birthdays. We could not have been better looked after. Their care and friendliness made it a wonderful memory. We have decided to all come back soon to celebrate another big birthday. The rooms were wonderful and clean, every comfort was looked after. The restaurant meal was of a high standard and the wait staff could not do enough for you. Well done Spicers!!

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms up stairs.

What a wonderful gem in the Hunter Valley. Reunion with girlfriends from Wa where we were all celebrating turning 60. The rooms were large and well finished with qualtiy fittings and accessories. The restaurant food and service was outstanding. What really made Spicers stand out heads and shoulders above anywhere else I have stayed (including the Beverly Hilton,LA) was the friendly and caring staff. I have never experienced the care we received at Spicers anywhere in the world. It was amazing.
I have already and will be recommending Spicers to everyone who might be considering a break.
I will be returning with my husband at the first opportunity, thanks guys for a wonderful stay.

We have been to the Hunter on lots of occasions but not for a few years due to having kids. It was my wife's 40th Birthday so I wanted somewhere special and this turned out to be the place. The room / suite was a great size with plenty of room to relax and move about. There was a stocked mini bar for us to use as part of the price which was a great touch. Sharon and the team were very friendly and helpfully & the restaurant was of a very high quality. We had breakfast on the veranda each morning (also in the price) overlooking the vineyards - again stunning. As others have said this is not cheap to stay but it is actually really good value for money and we would definitely return in a heart beat.

My husband and I took a long weekend away to Spicers and had the most relaxing time. The staff were so friendly and knowledgeable of the area. We enjoyed their beautiful restaurant, as well as other local areas the staff suggested (and booked) for us. The rooms were very large with a high quality finish. Our room even came with a spa that was big enough for two! The only down side was that we couldn't stay longer! I went straight home and recommended it to my parents for their next get away.

Stayed here on the October long weekend and loved it! The rooms are massive. Just beautiful.
It's not cheap to stay here but you pay peanuts you get monkeys. I would highly recommend this place for couples looking for a romantic getaway. Oh and try the restaurant. Great food and wine!

My husband booked a weekend at Spicers to celebrat my 30th birthday. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The service was exceptional and the staff super friendly. The rooms were a generous size, not your standard hotel room. Food in the restaurant was exquisite. Our stay couldn't have been better!
