Dear Alan B,

Thanks for taking the time to let us know about your stay at Spicers Vineyards Estate. I'm so glad our special property and friendly staff were helpful in creating what sounds like a very relaxing time for you. Our proximity to so much activity in the Hunter Valley is such an attraction we hope to welcome you another time soon to again take advantage of it with us.

This is a beautiful place to stay.We arrived after lunch to a lovely cool room and nice views over the valley and vineyard from our balcony. The pool area is relaxing with nice big umbrellas for shade.Later in the afternoon we received a complementary cocktail. The restaurant was so romantic for our Anniversary dinner.Thank you for a memorable nights stay!!!

Lovely peaceful and quiet resort. Rooms very nice with a real fire if you want to light it.
Comfy beds and good bathroom. Only given 1 small hand towel but a 2nd one provided quickly on request.
Bottle of sparkling wine nice touch on arrival. Evening cocktails delivered at 5.30 daily also a nice touch.
Surprisingly whilst we had 2 bottles of water on arrival, we were given none after that and water in mini bar is chargeable!!! Not what I would expect from a 5* resort. In fact it is the first 5* place we have stayed in that has not provided daily water. Essential in this hot climate.
Breakfast service was slow at times and quite limited choice. No good basics, felt they almost tried too hard. They give you muffins to take away after breakfast which is nice.
Bikes are available (only 4) and helmets so we cycled around the vineyards which was nice.
Pool small and only 8 sun beds (there are 12 rooms here) . Some of the tiles around the pool are loose and need fixing as they are a trip hazard. They should have towels by the pool I feel. There are pools towels in room but only 2. We asked for another 2 as they are not long enough to cover the sunbed and these were happily supplied. However if you went for a dip and needed a towel to dry off you would need to go back in to reception to ask.
Staff are very pleasant and extremely helpful.
No help with luggage - we had a room on first floor so my husband had to cart cases up the stairs!!! Only young girls on reception who offered to help but as we were on a five week trip the cases were very heavy!
Our room was close to reception and could be quite noisy in the morning as all arrived.
Wi fi very slow- we tried to FaceTime our daughter and it kept cutting out.
Overall a very nice stay but a few things could be improved..

What a fantastic place to visit out of this world it’s so peaceful and relaxing and also the food and everything about the place is excellent and the rooms are fabulous it’s a bit pricey but it’s like people say you get what you pay for and if you feel like a treat this is the place its also handy for lots of different vineyards to visit

If you go to Spicers and or the attached restuarant Bontanica you have obviously done some research on the net. Neither is cheap. But your book knowing that. Or you should. So for those who have decided to stay and then complained about the price.....tough luck. You only have yourself to blame.

My wife an I loved our 3 nights there. Couldn’t fault it. The young staff at both venues were brilliant and genuinely looked to be happy they worked there.

The breakfast was excellent each morning. The rooms were spacious. Bathrooms large and clean. The little extras were nice. The bottle of Tyrells ‘bubbles’ in the fridge on arrival was nice. The pod coffee machine. The real surprise was the 5.30pm cocktail delivered gratis to the room. Each afternoon a different cocktail.

On departure were presented with bottled water and a selectin of cookies.

Some may say that for the price you pay the extras should be included but we didn’t see it that way. They were just nice touches.

Previous reviewers were right about the serenity. Once the door is closed it is virtually soundproof.

Dinner in the Botanica was delicious. Staff were again excellent.

If you can afford it then stay.

Regards
