“Writing about another wonderful stay as I sit by their pool!”
Reviewed January 29, 2014 via mobile

With a few days left before we head back home, We thought we could squeeze in another quick stay at Spicers. Writing this review whilst we sit by the stunning new pool, I am so relaxed. It's almost 6pm, the Hunter valley sun is still shining and the amazing staff just delivered us a free cocktail - It can't get any better. Our room is beautifully set up and clean as last time and breakfast is so delicious as always with dinner in botanica a delightful, relaxed bistro style evening. Just perfect again Spicers- you have own us as life long visitors!

A great 4 day stay and would do it again. An ideal location within easy driving distance to everything. Luxury Spa room was perfect within very comfortable bed and large living area. Bathroom and outdoor private patio were a bonus.

The location, staff, facilities and services blend to make Spicers the perfect vacation to unwind and relax from the hussle and busssle of the City. Customer service was exceptional with staff going out of there way to ensure the experience was the best it could be done.
Thanks so much... David & Jennifer x

Set in the heart of the Hunter Valley close to some great wineries. Friendly welcome, nice pool, great breakfast. Very large bedroom suites, and well equipped. The restaurants at the nearby Hunter Valley Gardens are worth a visit.
Very relaxing. Recommended.

There are a few ways to experience this amazing place.
You can eat at restaurant Botanica and experience the exquisite food and exceptional wine list which will have your palate forever indebted to them.
You can enjoy the experience of Spa Anise there on site Spa . Which will leave your body and mind blissed out .
Or you can stay at the Guest house and have all your needs taken care of before you think you need them taken care of.
Or you can do yourself a favour and do all of the above .
When you are on holiday the most important thing you want is for the service to be intuitive so you can really stop thinking and completely relax. These guys excel at this .
The staff are really helpful and they work so well as a team .
Missing them already.

Stayed here for our 10th wedding anniversary. Amazing attention to detail from all Staff, reception, massage therapists, and Botanica restaurant. Upon arrival we were upgraded to room 10 which was a King Spa Luxury Suite. We were also offered a complimentary cocktail in our room prior to dinner at Botanica restaurant.
My wife and I had a massage at Spa Anise which was a very serene and relaxing experience. The therapists greeted us with a foot bath. and were very attentive to providing the perfect experience. We also had dinner and breakfast at Botanica restaurant. We were greeted with a complimentary glass of bubbly which was another nice touch. The food was amazing. Extremely well presented and very tasty. Highly recommend the scallops for Entree...yum. Breakfast was also great. Loved the fruit cocktail and the poached eggs. The room was perfect for a romantic getaway with lot's of nice touches such as an iPod Dock, nespresso coffee machine, complimentary mini bar, great layout and modern fixtures and fittings in the bathroom. The iPod Dock is made for IPhone 4 connections. Reception provided an adapter for my iPhone 5 within minutes of request. Upon checkout we were offered a packet of biscotti for the road. All this little touches and attention to detail added to a perfect experience. I would rate the whole experience as a perfect 10. Looking forward to coming back and celebrating our next milestone.
