“Cosy and Charming”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

Had a wonderful 3 night stay for my husband's birthday last week - from calling to make our reservation to the ease of checking out- the service and attention to detail was just perfect. Having never been to the Hunter Valley, it wasn't easy finding a place of high standard which was also intimate and friendly, but luckily Spicers fit the bill. And the food was delicious!

Our spa suite was spacious and simply but tastefully decorated with a wood-burning fireplace, bathroom (with heated floors) and balcony where we could enjoy the views- just lovely. The staff were so helpful in organizing our stay and making sure all our needs were met, one felt like nothing was too much trouble. The food at Botanica was excellent- the degustation set was the best meal we had in Hunter Valley, and the breakfast was so fresh and delicious.

A really special little place, and in a great location, close to everything. Will definitely return!

Room Tip: The spa suites are wonderful!

This was an A-grade getaway. The food at the Botanical restaurant was second to none. I've travelled extensively including fine dining in Paris and New York and my partner and i both agreed it was sensational! In particular ,the scallops. The accommodation was sophisticated and equally cosy. A must for all loved up couples!

As usual the Spicers Vineyard Estate was absolutely perfect, the staff are amazing! They are there when you need them, friendly, happy to share a joke, but not intrusive. This is definitely a home away from home.

I cannot rate Spicers highly enough. We enjoyed 2 nights of pure indulgence. The room was spacious and exceeded our expectations. The complimentary mini-bar is a lovely touch. The food was amazing as was the service of all the staff at Spicers. We would definitely recommend Spicers to couples and cannot wait to return.

A modern oasis in the middle of the hunter wine region. Home grown produce in an excellent restaurant metres away from your room. Service is excellent an, accommodation is new and fresh, and staff are wonderful. We keep going back!

We stayed only one night at Spicers and absolutely loved it. Such a beautiful location away from the hustle and bustle; amazing service and attention to detail; the restaurant is incredible; we loved our suite, complimentary mini-bar, huge bathroom, pre-dinner cocktails and they think of everything you need. Wouldn't go anywhere else in the hunter valley if you're looking for a romantic getaway.

The most relaxing weekend with great service, great food and great accommodation. Beautiful location, very quiet. Comfortable rooms, great restaurant. But most of all helpful and friendly staff. Good advice to local attractions.
