Lovely stay in world's most beautiful wine country

Pros: Service and decor.
Cons: Draftiness in guest rooms during winter. Offer guest rooms in the main building.
Location: A ways outside of Stellenbauch but within driving distance to wineries and charming town shops and restaurants of both Stellenbauch and Fraunschook.
We enjoyed Excellent service by restaurant and hotel staff. The historical preservation of the buildings and exceptional African art collection throughout is very impressive. Room was comfortable and enjoyed the fireplace during winter chills. Beautiful grounds and would provide a maximum experience of beauty and activities in spring or summer months. Excellent driver Andre took us to exceptional wineries.

A stay we wish would never end

The Spier hotel is outstanding! Our stay at the spier exceeded all expectations. We were in South Africa for a total of 19 days and THE BEST place we stayed. The rooms are excellent, very cozy, comfortable, great views and the fire place is an added bonus for those visiting during winter season. The grounds at the hotel are stunning and they have plenty of activities for the whole family. From bike rides to picnics; segway rides to eagles encounter; and many more. The wine tasting at spier is THE BEST in the region. Their wine is amazing for a start, they are very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. It was actually the ONLY wine tasting the kids enjoyed! Food at the restaurants is exquisite. Great value for money and delicious food made with care. The location is a plus to the hotel. Its easy to drive to town, quite close to the airport and its in the heart of Stellenbosch wine route. Two things have absolutely stood out; 1) Their environmental friendly policy won us over. Their chickens and cows are totally free range, they are turning their wine 100% organic, food taste great and the eggs.. oh the eggs!!!!!! 2) The staff! They treated us in such a way that didn't take long for us to feel part of the Spier family. What hotel makes you feel like that? The Spier family have touched our family and changed us forever. They have given us an unforgettable week and have absolutely inspired us. We can’t tank you guys enough! We hope to be back one day!
