As a part of a recent visit to Capetown we stayed for 2 nights at the Spier Hotel for a winelands visit. This hotel was added by Travelbag who arranged the visit for us. We were not sure what to expect, and were very pleasantly surprised by this 4 Star rated hotel. We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis, but ate at the hotel for lunch and dinner on the first day and dinner on the second day.
The standard of the rooms was very good, Te bedroom was clean and well presented with a large bathromm having both a roll top bath and separate walk in shower. The rooms are set in blocks around the main building and each block includes a grassed terrace with a small pool. There is also a larger pool outside the main building. The views were stunning looking out over the terraced vineyards. The meals in the main hotel were of a very high quality and not too expensive. All the staff were friendly and very helpful. A unique experience was transfer frlom the reception to our room on arrival in a golf buggy.
Over all a very pleasant stay but the hotel is a little remote and I think 2 days was sufficient to see the wine production and sample some wines.
I would recommend it as a quiet retreat in excellent surroundings.
