We spent 3 days at the Spier Hotel and found it to be a lovely, peaceful haven. The bar/lounge area is beautiful in quite a modern style. We ate at the restaurant which was OK, but preferred our meal at the MOYO restaurant in the Spier grounds (face painting, African music etc). Our room was in a small block which was built around its own pool and we assumed that all the rooms in the "village" were like that. There is a larger pool which is open to all guests. I didn't actually swim in the pool (it looked a little murky) as I didn't get the chance, but dipped my feet in! Some staff were very friendly, others were more reserved, but I guess you get that anywhere in a large hotel. We found the grounds lovely to walk around and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We did enquire about a wine tasting trip, but found the trip that the hotel offered to be very expensive. We had our own car, so decided to visit a few wineries by ourselves and this was a MUCH cheaper option.
All in all a lovely stay - we wished we had spent more time in the area.
