Stellenbosch, Winelands

The hotel

Spier Hotel is a beautiful family-friendly hotel situated in Stellenbosch, next to the calming Eerste River, with a range of activities all within the hotel's grounds. The hotel part of Spier is set up like a village, with large rooms set in 2-storey buildings grouped around private courtyards each with their own pools and spacious gardens. The larger Spier resort is a 300-year-old wine farm which still features on-site wine tasting, plus a choice of restaurants including the farm-to-table Restaurant 'Eight', providing locally grown organic produce cooked to perfection. There's a picnic area with children's playground if a spot of outdoor dining takes your fancy and to keep everyone entertained the Spier is also home to Eagle Encounters, a bird of prey rehabilitation, education, conservation and eco-tourism centre. Spier Hotel is a place of good food, good wine and good hospitality.

The warm welcome and the great service is intact after the close down. Even though the weather was fine, the rooms are a little cold at this time of the year. But staying in one of the Riverside rooms is never a disappointment. Great to be back.

Stayed one night. room spacious, clean and extremely comfortable. Gardens stunning. Food delicious - breakfast as well as ala carte at the hotel restuarant. Highlight was wine stating - but make sure you book becasue was busy and obviously extremely popular.
