What can I say but - Wow! The whole experience was wonderful. Everything is thought of by a friendly and attentive team. We visited in Dec 2015 (yes, I'm writing the review quite late). I had just received an exciting and unexpected promotion and my husband was also celebrating work success. We were locals at the time, so Spicers was...

An afternoon visit to Spicer's Vineyards Estate as a birthday gift for my partner turned out to be a doubly-memorable experience thanks to the quality of customer service provided by the spa and restaurant staff. After enjoying the Ultimate Treatment spa and massage package (including the hot stones treatment at additional cost), and after seeing the total state of relaxation...

Spicers Vineyards Estate is pure relaxation. Calm radiates from the staff through the buildings and grounds. Dinner is creative and delicious, worth a trip on it's own. Staff exceptionally helpful.It is a little difficult to find off of the highway but keep looking, it's well worth the drive.

We only spent one night in Spicers, but wished that we had booked for two. The room was beautifully furnished with a jacuzzi. The balcony was amazing to just have a wine or two outdoor. Hotel reception was very friendly and helpful with their recommendations. Really pleasant and memorable stay. The only downside is that, the place is a little...

My wife and I celebrated our 2-year wedding anniversary and were so happy we chose this place. Best place in Hunter we've ever stayed at. This retreat was amazing all round. From receiving personalised emails asking how they can help book restaurants, spas and tours in the weeks leading up to the trip, to the very warm welcome on arrival,...

Spricers Vineyards Estate is set in a tranquil setting, at the bottom of the beautiful Broken Back Range. It is so peaceful. Room extremely comfortable, the bed was heaven and Spa fantastic. Re-visited Anise Spa and enjoyed the massage and the bubbly that followed. I loved the nightly cocktail that arrived in our room between after 5.30pm. Breakfasts included and...

We stayed for two nights at Spicers and it was so tranquil. Lovely room and a welcome bottle of fizz. The weather wasn't great when we were there but we were still able to sit out on the verandah with a drink. Evening complimentary cocktails were a lovely touch. We didn't eat at botanica in the evening as the restaurant...

Went for lunch and was no where what it used to be. Paid $24 for a scallop entree to receive 2 scallops on plate. Both main meals were not good. We loved this restaurant but it's gone so downhill. Sorry but it's no longer my favourite ☹️

From the moment you drive up alongside the vines and see Restaurant Botanica peaking out from behind, you know this is somewhere great. The rooms are immaculate and everything is thought of. Even the things you just whimsically hope for are probably included. They even have cool ambient music playing as you walk in, just to give it that premium...
