Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I can't think of one thing I would change. The staff were welcoming and attentive. The accommodation was well appointed and clean. The meals were fantastic. We went for our wedding anniversary but we won't need an excuse to return.

We had an excellent stay at Spicers, the food and service was exceptional, and the staff warm and welcoming. The view from the infinity pool is incredible, and there is plenty to see and do on the property. We had a great time and will be recommending Spicers Hidden Vale to family and friends.

We had a fabulous relaxing time at Spicers Hidden Vale. Food was great but it is a different more rustic experience to other Spicers we have stayed at ( Spicers Peak Lodge/ Spicers Clovelly is probably a bit of a more "finer" dining experience). Location is spectacular and the Black Angus cabin was very spacious and comfortable. Bed was very nice and soft with lots of pillow choices. We will definitely be back.

The property was certainly beautiful, and the food was incredible, but the service was really the exemplary standout. The communication in re to sorting out a miscommunication on a NYE booking, to the food servers and the friendly housekeepers was seamless, and made what could have been a frustrating experience one of great ease and enjoyment. We will certainly return!

A beautiful property staffed by very helpful people. We were in a standard valley view room, and though small, it was adequate. The only thing lacking was storage space. There were no drawers or shelves for things like underwear, tshirts and shorts and only place for clothes was a narrow hanging space, so we had to live out of our suitcases for four days. The food was really delicious and imaginative, a real gourmet experience, slightly marred on a few occasions by it being lukewarm, but this was dealt with immediately and the replacements were piping hot.

We stayed for our Strategic Planning Days for two days, with a stay over in the beautiful accommodation. Everything was perfect from booking the 20 of us in, organising accommodation , catering and room set-ups. Staff couldn't have been more helpful with looking after us and nothing was too much trouble. Everything was memorable, venue, the beautiful surroundings, catering and the Coffee was great and got us through our Planning Days. I will definitely come back to a stay with my husband. A great place to get away and so close to home. Thanks
