I have been to other Spicers Resorts and I liked them better but that is just a personal view. It is a long way to travel, if you like bush settings it is great and the service is fantastic. We stayed in a cottage and I feel for the money it probably wasn't quite up to standard.

Spicer's Hidden Vale is a lovely resort with great scenery.Very clean and comfortable with friendly, helpful staff and delicious food. There is plenty to do though we were disappointed that the archery was not available during our stay and the sofa bed is uncomfortable.

The perfect location for teams that need to get away from it all and really focus on planning the year ahead. Restaurant and conference facilities spot on. Cottage accommodation just the right feel for a 'farm stay.' The scones for morning tea were to die for. Loved ending the day around the campfire with a good red. The staff were...

The staff, food, and surroundings were excellent, the accommodation was very ordinary and over priced. The room was ridiculously cramped with a shower that didn't work properly. Sorry, but we felt that the accomodation couldnt be classed as luxury.

Stayed for a weekend to attend a wedding. Venue was fantastic, loved the overall country feel of the place. Staff and service was excellent. Massage was super and reasonably priced. Will go again with friends, maybe in winter to take advantage of the fireplace.

Spicers Hidden Vale not only met my expectations, but far exceeded them. A visit to their website shows how beautiful the property is, and it met this in every way - the rooms are well furnished and tidy, the grounds are beautiful (up for a dip in the pool while kangaroos are sitting next to you and you over look...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just an hour from Brisbane set on a stunning 12,000 acre property, Spicers Hidden Vale is a true hidden gem. The retreat is centered around a stunning historic homestead with wide verandas providing views over the little Liverpool Ranges and infinity rock pool. Hatted restaurant Homage is housed inside the homestead where a dedicated team of chefs create masterpieces based entirely on local produce. The original barn is still standing and has been restored, now a place to lounge and relax by the fire, or have beverage or two looking out over the 89 bed market garden. You can set your own pace - for those wanting to relax, there are picnic points, Spa Anise Day Spa, and two beautiful pools with mountain views to relax in. For those wanting a faster pace, there are mountain bike and bush walking trails, 4WD property tours, laser clay and archery. Being a nature refuge, the land is abundant with native wildlife including hundreds of Kangaroos and Wallabies and regular koala sightings. Spicers Hidden Vale has 31 rooms. Choose from Valley View Rooms which overlook the mountains, each with their own private veranda, Heritage suites which stand alone and have their own spa, a cottage for 4, 8 or even 12 guests or for the ultimate experience, Luxury suites which are stand alone, with spacious lounge, spa and private veranda. ... more   less
