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.

.We spent 3 nights here.
Food was excellent including the beef (rump and the Wagyu) which was as tender as can be!!
Service was fantastic. A lovely new team who were already hitting their straps. Professional but also warm / friendly.
We had a room with a lovely view but it was tiny........not even space to hang our cloths. Quite a bit of plumbing sounds and bumps from neighbouring rooms.
It is a beautiful peaceful location.

Dear 514grahamb, Thank you for you review! How wonderful that you were able to spend three nights with us at Hidden Vale. It's great to hear you were well looked after and had an excellent dining experience at Homage. We're so glad you enjoyed the peace and serenity of the 12,000 acres we are situated on. We do also have a number of different room types including larger, standalone rooms that take in the wider views of the beautiful Australian bush. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Warm regards, Claire

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.

My partner and I stayed at the hotel. Whilst the room was adequate (at best), my low rating spurs from the poor treatment of staff that I witnessed whilst dining at the Homage restaurant.
My partner and I were shocked to witness one member being publicly berated by someone who appeared to be a manager.
When I inquired, they claimed it never occurred.
Extremely disappointing to see this level of unprofessionalism.
We will not be staying here again, and encourage others to seek alternative accommodation.

We stayed in a deluxe cabin which had an amazing open fireplace where we spent a lot of time relaxing looking out at the countryside. The food was incredible and the staff were so friendly. I'll be back again as it was one of the most restful and quiet places I've ever stayed at.

Unfortunately the Lunch and dinner service was terrible. Same menu for both. Was actually sick after the lunch.
Would not recommend for small business meetings. Large group of rowdy luncheon guests was distracting.
Rooms are small but nice and clean.
Nice setting but overall expensive room rate and meals. Probably would not return.

I stayed in the Loft Suite for two nights with my parents and everything about Hidden Vale blew our expectations away.

The staff, property, food, hot spa, tours, everything was fantastic! We couldn’t fault anything at Homage for dinner and breakfast, fantastic meals and staff.

Our car also broke down 15 minutes from the property (flat tyre) and Claire and David were so kind and helpful, with David going out of his way to pick up my mum and I, and bring us to the property. Thank you so much for all your help!

This was the perfect escape to relax, unwind and create memorable moments with my parents.

From start to finish we loved every single minute of our stay. We attended a Wedding & stayed overnight. The grounds are so beautiful & relaxing, our room stunning, food delicious & every single staff member was so happy & nothing was a bother. Special mention to Troy for making the night extra special. Thank you to all involved.

Awesome Views and the service was exceptional. Really enjoyed the meals that were provided. The sirloin steak was cooked to perfection. The chicken meals were cooked to perfection as well. Really loved the fruit bowl that was provided for Brteakfast.

This is the perfect venue to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Un-wind in stunning surrounds in a beautiful and luxurious cottage on the homestead. Customer service on all levels is perfect. Dining was good but not stunning which was the only question mark on the stay. I recommend you definitely go. PS take your bicycle if you can as there is terrific bush tracks if you are up for exercise.

Hi MarkkN591, one of our pools is heated and the spa adjoining it sits at 37 degrees which is a lovely place to be in the winter!
