It was an excellent romantic getaway. Amazing accommodation and all the staff were excellent. The spa facilities were great and beauty therapists made our stay very relaxing. My partner and I will definitely be back.

A perfect weekend of relaxed understated luxury. Every aspect of your stay is planned to perfection from the perfectly set fire to the impeccably timed housekeeping service. We so enjoyed watching the kangaroos from the spa bath in the morning, competing at the outdoor chess, the delicious cocktails on our balcony and the food at Botanica was simply divine. A...

We had a lovely two nights at this adorable small boutique hotel. The whole place is understated chic, very comfortable and spacious. The service is excellent all round. We treated ourselves to facials which were great along with the extra care from the super friendly duo that provided them.

Have just returned from a 4 night stay with Hubby and highly recommend Spicers. The staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We had requested a room on the first floor however when we arrived realised that, whilst it was a lovely room, there was no balcony or outdoor area and as it was warm it would...

Came for a Sunday lunch with family friends, the service was fantastic (especially to cater for our vegan guests.) I had the scallops and the lamb, and could not fault either dish. The lemon lime and bitters dessert was amazing! Definitely coming back.

This was our first experience of a Spicers property and it was a very positive one. We took advantage of a mid week special which included a kitchen garden tour prior to dinner.

We stayed two nights at Spicers recently to attend a concert at Roche estate. All of the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was included in our accommodation rate and was eaten both mornings in the restaurant - the range was good and although not large servings, was more than enough. Parking was a little difficult, mainly because we...
