This was our first visit and stay at The Spier Hotel. First we entered the gate and seen this beautiful calm space with plenty of trees and flowers. Welcome wine at the lobby was also nice. The access to our room was also good, however if it was raining then it might be little tough to the room.(there was no rain during our stay). Room was quiet and clean and modern design. Fire place was also nice thing to have. Wine tasting, bakery, craft shop was fun experience. Restaurant was fantastic, taste really good and the staff was friendly and professional. We would like to visit again!

Would definitely recommend!!
I stayed here for a wedding and had an absolutely amazing stay. The staff were so kind and helpful and the room was the best I have stayed in…ever. I always struggle with triple rooms because I always find the room becomes cramped and more claustrophobic with the additional bed, but not here. It still had so much floor space, which was great with all the luggage. Also having our own garden area and shared pool was lovely, alongside the double sinks in the bathroom. I honestly could not have asked for more. The decor was quaint and fitting. I also went to the spa which was a treat. I’m not much of a wine drinker which is a shame as thats what Stellenbosch is known for, so the complimentary bottle on arrival sadly went to waste. It was a wonderful touch though!

loved it!
We loved Spier Hotel. I was a little suspicious as I don't like big commercial resorts/wine farms, but Spier Hotel was absolutely perfect; we booked for Easter Weekend and there were so many things to do for kids. The staff were really good. We had a riverside terrace room, beautiful big room; the bathroom is a little dated but totally adequate, and a good powerful shower! We could hear the people in the room upstairs, especially when they were moving chairs etc...but it wasn't too bad (and I usually hate neighbouring noise!). The bottle of wine in the room was a nice touch, as well as a little easter egg hamper for our daughter. The estate itself is just stunning, very well kept grounds, beautiful walks and if you have time, get free bikes at reception and do the 5km ride around the grounds early morning, it's so beautiful! Night market was a nice little bonus too. All in all, we would not hesitate to book this hotel again!
Riverside terrace room, huge bed!
Early morning coffee on our private terrace.
