Have just returned from a 4 night stay with Hubby and highly recommend Spicers. The staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We had requested a room on the first floor however when we arrived realised that, whilst it was a lovely room, there was no balcony or outdoor area and as it was warm it would...

Came for a Sunday lunch with family friends, the service was fantastic (especially to cater for our vegan guests.) I had the scallops and the lamb, and could not fault either dish. The lemon lime and bitters dessert was amazing! Definitely coming back.

There's really nothing to complain about re this resort. The rooms are beautifully clean and welcoming, the staff super helpful (nothing is too much trouble), the pool area peaceful with lounges, comfy cushioned chairs and umbrellas for shade and the rooms sport real fireplaces and comfy lounge areas. The beds are wonderfully comfy too and the bathrooms reasonably spacious. We...

This was our first experience of a Spicers property and it was a very positive one. We took advantage of a mid week special which included a kitchen garden tour prior to dinner. We enjoyed chatting with the Head Chef Matthew and this added a more personal level to the dinner, which was exceptional. The rooms are very spacious and...

We stayed two nights at Spicers recently to attend a concert at Roche estate. All of the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was included in our accommodation rate and was eaten both mornings in the restaurant - the range was good and although not large servings, was more than enough. Parking was a little difficult, mainly because we...

What can I say but - Wow! The whole experience was wonderful. Everything is thought of by a friendly and attentive team. We visited in Dec 2015 (yes, I'm writing the review quite late).

An afternoon visit to Spicer's Vineyards Estate as a birthday gift for my partner turned out to be a doubly-memorable experience thanks to the quality of customer service provided by the spa and restaurant staff.

Spicers Vineyards Estate is pure relaxation. Calm radiates from the staff through the buildings and grounds. Dinner is creative and delicious, worth a trip on it's own. Staff exceptionally helpful.It is a little difficult to find off of the highway but keep looking, it's well worth the drive.

We only spent one night in Spicers, but wished that we had booked for two. The room was beautifully furnished with a jacuzzi. The balcony was amazing to just have a wine or two outdoor. Hotel reception was very friendly and helpful with their recommendations. Really pleasant and memorable stay. The only downside is that, the place is a little...
