Great stay at Spier.
We had a great weekend experience at Spier experiencing many of the facilities. The accommodation is a very good level and the amenities and comfort factor very good. I loved the small swimming pool in the courtyards which felt like one's own private pool. The main pool area is fantastic too. The whole property is picturesque and well maintained. The picnic basket was well put together with a good array of items and you are spoilt for choice as to where to sit! The breakfasts are not bad Covid Protocols considered. Dinners were well presented and portions good. Some descriptions on the menu didn't seem to match what was served though - tasty nevertheless.. Great setting, great running, walking and cycling tracks. I'd spend a weekend there again.
Cancelled flights + COVID = Spier
We stayed because our flights were cancelled due to the new corona variant found in South Africa. This took a 3 week trip to SA to sort out some care for my mother in law to an indefinite stay. We arrived grumpily. SA had just implemented the stricter lockdown introducing a curfew and banning all alcohol sales. Super frustrating when you’re staying on a wine farm. I feel a bit sorry for anyone who works there who had to deal with us as we really were fed up and just wanted to go home. The hotel is nice - a series of small streets with European style courtyard houses. Some rooms are huge suites and some just huge rooms. Some have access to a pool too. Our room was huge and although nice enough really does need to be refurbished. It wasn’t shabby or scruffy just maybe a bit dated here and there. Apparently they are planning a refurb when this COVID hell ends. The grounds of the hotel and the wider spier resort are incredible. Stunning buildings and countryside set next to the eerste river. We did feel like the wider grounds and buildings were better maintained than the hotel itself but again this is probably just down to the needed refurb. What really makes this place with the 5 stars though are the staff. From the lovely reception staff who had to deal with us being grumpy but remained lovely and warm and kind and helpful. To the excellent staff in the restaurant or the brilliant cleaners. We really can’t praise them enough. The people who were most incredible were Jordi, Gloria, Tebello, Marian but really it’s all of them. We ended up leaving thanks to buying a new flight but we loved our time at spier and would gladly return. I highly recommend the food at Vadas. It was great. The picnics were also amazing.
Lovely hotel, with great facilities and activities for the whole family. We enjoyed the segway tour, that’s a must! Great walking and jogging trails for carefree runs. Lots of pools on-site for lounging and amazing restaurant (Vadas) on-site.
Perfect place to relax
Spier is a perfect combination of a beautiful hotel, wonderful landscape and excellent service. The eagle encounter is worth a visit. Unfortunately, due to Covid, we had no chance to do the wine tasting nor could we buy wine. Definitely a reason to come back
We checked in at Spier on Saturday 2 January just for a one night stay. We received friendly and efficient service from all staff. Very beautiful property you have, so picturesque and well maintained.
