We had a fantastic relaxing weekend set in a wonderful location and luxurious accommodation. The service and communication by all staff was excellent and on top of this the food was absolute top notch, highly recommend.

This is the second time we have stayed, as before a real treat & is certainly our preferred place to stay every time we return to the Hunter.

From the ease of booking through to checkout, the quality of the rooms, the great staff & fantastic restaurant, Spicers Vineyard Estate makes your stay a wonderful experience. True 5 star performer

wonderful service from the staff, nicely appointed rooms and amenities. Restaurant Botanica was excellent with great wines by the glass. Breakfast was also a nice change from the traditional buffet style. Slight issue with the noisiness from the water pipes in adjoining rooms. The restaurant is somewhat lacking in ambience but the food makes up for that. I like the toiletries in the rooms, high quality and replenished daily. Very peaceful location perfect to get away from the hustle of the city. Spa treatments were very good also. This property's main high point is its staff and level of service.

We just wanted to pass on our thanks to all the team at Spicers for making our stay with you last Thursday and Friday so wonderful.

We can't speak highly enough of the excellent service that we received from all of the staff there, from making our booking right through to when we left, and also for the additional help that you provided us in making our friends 40th birthday so special.

We felt so welcomed by all of the staff there who were all extremely accommodating of all our needs and made us feel that nothing was too much trouble. Thank you also for the complimentary glass of bubbles at dinner and the parting gift of biscotti and water - a nice touch! We also had some Epson salts delivered to our room from the ladies in the spa which was really sweet.. oh and not to mention the evening cocktail bought to the room/pool what a fabulous service you offer and in such a beautiful setting. Ok.. and the breakfast and dinners were also top class!

We would definitely stay with you again and recommend you to others.

Room Tip: they are all great... just go

I booked a midweek overnight stay as a surprise for my husbands birthday. It included dinner & breakfast at Botanica's restaurant.

The rooms are lovely and spacious and we were provided with a really nice bottle of Champagne on arrival. The bathroom is large with a spa bath however my husband noticed that the hot and cold taps were all the wrong way round (ie hot on the right instead of the left). Dyslexic plumber perhaps????.

As it was hot we used the pool and were treated to a free afternoon cocktail as we sat and enjoyed the sun on the very comfortable loungers. The rooms have an open fireplace and I can imagine that a cold winters night tucked up in front of the fire would be wonderful.

Breakfast was included and it was so peaceful to sit outside Botanicas restaurant looking out onto the vineyard. What we didn't eat we took to share with the 3 resident pigs who love a bit of toast and a scratch on the ear. They were very social and friendly and it was a nice novelty to have them there.

The staff were friendly and professional and happy to assist with anything they could. When I telephoned to make the booking they could not have been more lovely and happy to help with the surprise. And the great thing about having dinner at their restaurant is that you don't have to drive anywhere and can indulge in more wine!

Overall, as a special occasion, I think it was more than worth it.

excellent service great quality products are used. Room a little dull and very noisy early in the morning when next door were using their bathroom ie shower and spa. Food really good but selection was small. The property could add a few more activities for the guests.

We stayed here for 2 nights as a mini getaway after not seeing my husband for a month.The grounds are beautiful and our room was lovely. Everything was quality. It was peaceful and relaxing and we really couldn't fault anything. The pool and spa was lovely as was the complimentary cocktails brought out to us at the pool in the evening. The breakfast was amazing with freshly baked pastries. The only negative point regarding our stay was that we did book this hotel as we really wanted to try the resaurant Botanica and wanted to be able to not have to drive. After we had booked we were advised the restaurant was closed or 10 days. Neither Spicers or booking.com's website mentioned this at all. The closest restaurants that were open mid week were about a 25min drive away.
