“Best Service in a Lovely Setting”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

This team could train others on how to deliver world class service. Our wine club tour group was greeted by staff and shown immediately to our pre-keyed rooms by individually assigned guides. Our room had postcard views (including kangaroos at dawn) with a two-person spa tub and a comfortable, spacious seating area. Needless to say it was spotless. We were treated to amazing cuisine created on-site by the talented chef. The entire boisterous group collectively decompressed and everyone agreed this was our favorite location out of several luxury properties visited during the trip. That's really saying something. As an experienced traveler staying in some of the finest hotels, the service and and accommodations at Spicers Vineyards Estate beat them all hands down.

Room Tip: There isn't a bad room in the place, but a few on the top floor have their own balconies.

We stayed here for our Hunter Valley side trip from Sydney during our month from the UK to celebrate a special birthday. Maybe I should have had the grace to review this splendid experience earlier!

The location is extensive and tranquil and the welcome and staff attention throughout was warm and friendly. Our suite was spacious and very comfortable with the bonus of a really generously stocked mini bar. The food in Botanica was excellent and very moderately priced. If we were to return to Hunter Valley (long way to come!), we would have no hesitation to experience an action replay.

Although this was first and last in a series of one, I cannot imagine a better choice. Moreover, this was the first time we relied entirely on Tripadvisor's reviews and have ever since referred to them.

We recently booked a two-night stay for our wedding anniversary and had a truly magical experience. We visit the Hunter often, but this was our first time at Spicers - and we loved every moment. From the complimentary afternoon cocktail, the beautiful view over the countryside from our balcony (enjoyed watching the sun set, over a couple of treats from the complimentary minibar!), to the friendly staff, the delicious breakfast, the walk through the restaurants impressive vege patch and saying hello to the resident pigs, to an afternoon swim in the pool and, last but not least, the magnificent meal and wines in restaurant Botanica. We're desperately making up excuses to visit again.

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
