What a pleasant surprise our stay a Spier Hotel was. We would usually avoid these lager places, and favour small family run guesthouses. Nevertheless I ended up make the booking at Spier Hotel basically because we believe this winery produces the finest Chenin Blanc there is, which makes an excellent excuse for staying a couple of nights. It turned out to be one of the nicest stays on this road trip in the Western Cape. The rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated and clean. It is however the beauty, from the surrounding park to the extensive collection of contemporary art that deserves the visitors’ attention.
Our presumptions about bigger resorts were put to shame by the attentive staff and a capacity to cater for individual wishes. During our stay the hotel restaurant’s a la carte dinner menu was replaced by a buffet. However, upon our wish the a la carte menu was kindly made available to us. We certainly appreciated this fine service and the delicious food. Spire is a wonderful family experience.
Also, our gratitude to the staffer who found our camera and made sure it was returned to security so that we luckily got it back. Thank you!
