My husband and I only stay at Spicers Hidden Vale when we come to Qld, whether it be for business or pleasure. Simply because the service is never anything but fantastic, the staff are always so bright, bubbly and lovely. They always have time to have a chat and give you plenty of information on the meals, property etc. The rooms are always so well appointed and beautifully presented. We honestly can not say enough good things about Spicers Hidden Vale and the staff! Love, Love Hidden Vale!

Food at the restaurant was amazing! We had the crab entree and the Chateaubriand for dinner and finished the evening by the pool with a nice red. Very quiet and peaceful... Perfect if you just want to relax.

Though we have travelled widely and enjoyed many experiences in many countries, Spicers Hidden Vale, in our own backyard almost, has been one of the best we have experienced. People make the difference, and we were greeted with smiles and treated well by every person. The meals were excuisite - we kept saying "How can food taste so beautiful?" Plenty of good activities to either enjoy with others in a group, or by ourselves. We have already planned to visit other Spicers experiences, and highly recommend Spicers Hidden Vale.
