This hotel is really lovely, the gardens and surrounding countryside are stunning. The pool are is also really lovely and peaceful.

The hotel itself is set in small blocks. The rooms are enormous with huge comfortable beds, stone floors, and shutters at all of the windows instead of curtains, the bathrooms are enormous too. At night you could hear a pin drop it was so quiet.

The complex is laid out over quite a distance so if you want to see the Cheetahs or birds of prey they are up the far end from the hotel. They get a lot of day visitors but you are not aware of it at the hotel as you are away from it.

We went to MOYO for dinner. Yes it was a bit touristy, yes it was also the most expensive meal we had all holiday (£60) but it was definitely an experience, and the ambience was great. At the end of the day I was a tourist and i was on holiday and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. There are two other restaurants at the hotel so you don't have to go there. Breakfast in the hotel was another huge buffet with something for everyone.

I loved this hotel and would thoroughly recommend it for one or two nights.

A touch of the 1930s decadence about this luxury hotel on a wine estate with wild life park and lots more.
Service absolutely first class and the rooms outstanding.
Like most South African wines they look good and are well promoted but unfortunately Spier and its neighbouring Stellenboch wines are still not in the same league as the Australian/Chilian, Californian reds, nor the New Zealand, Australian and Californian whites INMO. Thats why they are always the cheapest in the UK supermarkets. Even the supposed better wines fall well below the competition however as good genuine gulpers they slipped down a treat.
If you want to stroke cheetahs and see white lions on the next estate, a trip to Spier is recommended, but it is very very commercial

We spent 2 nights here as part of our holiday to SA for my wife's 30th birthday and were generally impressed with the overall experience. The staff were friendly and efficient from reception to bar/dining and at the wine centre and the food in the hotel restaurants & deli was very good. The room was spacious and nicely made up although the bathroom was a little bit tired.
There was plenty to do in and around the hotel grounds which were immense, the Cheetah Outreach centre was a highlight for us and it was amazing to spend time with the Cheetah and learn about them.
Wine tasting was also very reasonably priced and our sommelier Tyson was an expert in his field. Well worth getting the premium tasting (R80) as Spier make some cracking wines, especially Pinotage.

We stayed at this hotel with our young family while my husband was attending a conference here.

Overall we had a very enjoyable stay; this is a very family orientated hotel and there was plenty to amuse my young children without the need to leave the site (although the surrounding area is lovely). The grounds are very well maintained, with fantastic picnic areas and great playgrounds. Unfortunately the very nice pool is not heated, so mild hypothermia was an issue once or twice!

The rooms are pleasant, and large enough to accommodate an extra bed and a cot. I liked the fairly sparce, traditional style of the rooms, although as others have mentioned, the bathrooms are a bit rough around the edges. Housekeeping was a little haphazard; some days there was a turn down service, and the number of towels and robes in our room varied.

We enjoyed the extensive buffet breakfast. The restaurant staff were fantastic with my children, and we felt very welcome throughout our stay - not always the case in smart hotels when travelling with young children.

The other restaurants are good in different ways. The food, decor and service at Eight were brilliant, my daughter enjoyed feeding the fish and ducks and scoffing a mezze plate on the Deck, and Moyo was entertaining. For adults the wine is an obvious draw, and it is very reasonably priced from both the shop and the bar. If only we could have brought more home with us!

Our stay for one night was let down by the poor staff attention and the rather spartan room. The grounds are however lovely and this made up for the downside. I would not entertain a long stay here.
