As part of the recent Lions tour we stayed here mid week. As it was winter in South Africa the weather was cold & wet & the ground sodden.
It seemed as if the hotel were totally unprepared for our visit, as the bar was under staffed & there was only a buffet available for dinner. The quality and choice of this left a lot to be desired. We ended up eating in the conservatory which was cold, poorly lit and had water seeping under the door.
To get to the bedroom you had to walk from reception over an unlit path that had puddles , umberalls were however provided. Because of the wind outside the door rattled all night and windows in an upstairs room also made a noise.

Breakfast the first morning was pandemonium as there seemed to be insufficient staff on duty and, the choice and variety of food on offer was not great.
Because we were a tour party we had no cars. The hotel advised that the nearby town of Stellenbosch had few taxis but that the hotel had a courtesy coach that would take us into town. I must say it was the first time a courtesy coach actually charged money !!
The next evening an a la Cart menu was available, and the food considerably better than the buffet from hell of the previous evening.
I am sure this would be a cracking hotel in summer time and you had your own transport but mid week in the winter time it left a lot to be desired.
Staff friendly but not professional, spa is only adequate.

Liked the rooms, they were spacious. Breakfast was nothing special and pretty average.
Prices are expensive five star but the place falls down on customer care/service. Good for a couple of days!

We stayed for 1 night. This large wine estate has lots to do on the site.

From wine tasting, horse riding, cheetah and bird sanctuary.

The hotel has a grand reception and bar area.

The room was large and spacious to high standard and cleanliness - with several pools across the complex.

Breakfast had a selection of cooked, pastries, fruit etc.

We ate at Moyo's resturant on site - which probably was our biggest dissapointment - very overpriced for what you get.

Ideal getaway from Cape Town for a couple of days - only about 1 - 1/2 hours drive away.

Stayed here for a week in September2008 with 5 others on a golfing trip.The Hotel was very good.All the usual facilities.Rooms were comfortable and roomy.Breakfast was good.We had a couple of meals in the hotel which wern't bad at all.The location is good if you want to travel around the region.You will need a car because you are a few miles out of Stellenbosch.Cape Town itself is not very far away.The road communications are very good and improving rapidly (presumably ahead of the World Cup).I would have no hesitation at all in recommending this Hotel as avery good base.All in all it was an extremely positive experience.

About 10 mins drive outside Stellenbosch, this hotel is fantastic.
The rooms are large and spacious with a large batch and separate double shower. There is a lot of attention to detail, our room had lavender flowers painted on the floor boards in the entrance, and also lavender flowers on the pillows and in the bathroom.
The hotel is a large complex, on the original Spier estate, there are guys in golf buggies to take you round if you don't fancy walking.
The original Manor house is currently undergoing restoration work, however we managed to see & stoke tame Cheetah cubs as well as enjoying a wine tasting session. The work they do with Cheetah's is great, using rescued Cheetahs to raise money to help local farmers with a scheme to use dogs to deter Cheetahs from coming onto their farms and protect their live stock. Rather than shooting and killing wild Cheetahs.
The restaurant is amazing with traditional dancing and singing, a real experience.
My only negative comment is that we only stayed 1 night. More would have been so much better.
The location is accessible by car to Cape Town, the Cape of Good Hope /Simon's Town & Stellenbosch.
