“Spicers Vineyards Estate, Hunter Valley – Excellent!”
Reviewed 9 December 2012

We stayed at Spicer's Vineyards Estate to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Excellent accommodation which was very quiet but central to all vineyards etc..Free mini bar including champagne was very good & generous. On site restaurant, Botannica, was excellent also. service in the estate & restaurant was very very friendly also.

Only critique I have is that the estate does not have foxtel but they do provide a large DVD library which is free.

We stayed at Spicers Vineyards Estate once again last week and we were, as always, so impressed by this property and the amazing staff. Each of the suites are very quiet, tastefully decorated and comfortable. The amazing thing is that everything in the mini-bar is there for the use of the guest – totally complimentary! The staff are the most obliging in any place I have ever stayed and sooooo very friendly – it almost makes you feel like you are in a private home! There are 8 suites and soon to be 12. What can I say about Restaurant Botanica – other than to say that Mark (the Chef) and his team run a great ship with a lot of the produce coming from their own gardens. The food is just of the best quality, and to start your meal, you receive a little complimentary hors d’oeuvre which differs each night. They are now open for lunch on Saturday and Sunday. I cannot leave this page without mentioning their breakfasts – mixed fruit juice (different each day), cereal, fruit platter, Danish pastries, home made little quiches, yoghurt and home made quince jam and poached egg in either tomato or polenta – differing each day. Cannot wait to get back there soon.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are my choice as they have lovely views.

My Partner and I stayed 2 nights and the staff were very friendly & helpful, we had the couples massages which were very relaxing and well worth it. Dinner and Breakfast were absolutely beautiful in the restaurant and the service was fantastic! We would definetly go back again as this was a fantastic getaway!

Room Tip: If you want privacy i would suggest the rooms on the top level.

We stayed only one night but great location to experience Hunter Valley wines, great room, friendly and very helpful service, good breakfast.
Bed was great and having you own log fire in your room adds to the charm of the very clean and warmly decorated room.
We will definitely come back when the new rooms are finished, perfect for a romantic getaway in autumn.

Just returned to WA after spending time at the Spicers Estate. I was there to celebrate with girlfriends our 60th Birthdays. We could not have been better looked after. Their care and friendliness made it a wonderful memory. We have decided to all come back soon to celebrate another big birthday. The rooms were wonderful and clean, every comfort was looked after. The restaurant meal was of a high standard and the wait staff could not do enough for you. Well done Spicers!!

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms up stairs.

What a wonderful gem in the Hunter Valley. Reunion with girlfriends from Wa where we were all celebrating turning 60. The rooms were large and well finished with qualtiy fittings and accessories. The restaurant food and service was outstanding. What really made Spicers stand out heads and shoulders above anywhere else I have stayed (including the Beverly Hilton,LA) was the friendly and caring staff. I have never experienced the care we received at Spicers anywhere in the world. It was amazing.
I have already and will be recommending Spicers to everyone who might be considering a break.
I will be returning with my husband at the first opportunity, thanks guys for a wonderful stay.

We have been to the Hunter on lots of occasions but not for a few years due to having kids. It was my wife's 40th Birthday so I wanted somewhere special and this turned out to be the place. The room / suite was a great size with plenty of room to relax and move about. There was a stocked mini bar for us to use as part of the price which was a great touch. Sharon and the team were very friendly and helpfully & the restaurant was of a very high quality. We had breakfast on the veranda each morning (also in the price) overlooking the vineyards - again stunning. As others have said this is not cheap to stay but it is actually really good value for money and we would definitely return in a heart beat.
