You cannot go to the Hunter Valley without staying at Spicers. This property well exceeded all expectations, from the amazing scenery, to the convenience of restaurant Botanica, and the outstanding service of the staff, Spicers has it all. The rooms were perfect, everything you could want and always very well cleaned. The addition of the day spa was great and... More

Big thanks to Amy who did so much for us, organised the wine tour with the two fat blokes (brilliant), booked a local restaurant for dinner and is there each morning serving Breakfast. She was excellent. We were there on a Monday and Tuesday night, unfortunately they are the nights the restaurant does not open for dinner which was disappointing.... More

Everything about Spicers is outstanding. We were here for a work off site meeting. The grounds are wonderful, complete with kangaroos in the early morning. The rooms are wonderful, modern, clean, well appointed with everything you could need. Unfortunately it was too warm to light the open fire, however this option would be lovely in cooler weather. The staff are... More

This is quality. Pure and simple. It is one of the best hotels we have stayed in which is why we travelled 10,000 miles to return. This time we were one of the rooms on the side which, as before, is so tastefully furnished and wonderfully spacious. Our suite has clear living space, bedroom and a stunning bathroom with a...

Everything about the restaurant Botanical was brilliant. Attentive, professional, friendly and timely service. The food was sensational, the blends of flavours are exquisite. The duet singing and playing acoustic guitar were really, really good, adding to an already amazing atmosphere. A great lunch experience for us. Will definitely go back.

Our first visit and it will not be our last. Exceeded all of our expectations. One out of the box. The training and service ethic of the staff was just so refreshing. The restaurant is an added bonus and would put a lot of Sydney restaurants to shame!

Spicers Vineyards Estate is our favourite accommodation in the Hunter Valley. A boutique hotel with 12 rooms, our room was superbly fitted out with a king bed, comfortable lounge furniture and an open fireplace. One niggling complaint was the low lighting in the bathroom. We strolled down to Botanica Restaurant and met our 4 friends for a wonderful dinner. Breakfast... More

Such great service, managing our tour and reataurant bookings before arrival. Beautiful grounds, close to multiple vineyards and really great breakfasts with house made ingredients. Pool is really a bonus in summer months. Rooms are very spacious! Will stay there again if I find myself back in the hunter
