Having owned and managed a much smaller version of Hidden Vale for 8 years, ours was a 5 star, full service, 8 roomed guest lodge, I fully understand the effort, attention to detail and service level required to maintain longevity and success of this type of venture, my experience at Hidden Vale all round was absolutely astounding, I could not...

An amazing property and experience. The food is incredible, the staff are excellent and the surroundings and environment are perfect. With walks, beautiful pools, farm animals and wallabies that come right up to your door we couldn't have imagined a more memorable anniversary

Our cabin was a quaint cottage with the most glorious view spread out infront of us. The large bed invited you to curl up with a good book with the occasional look at the view out the glass doors. Out the doors was an outdoor setting for two. It is the little things that make Spicers a great place to...

Dear Alison A, Thank you for your recent stay and great review! It is pleasing to hear you had an enjoyable stay. Reading a good book curled up on the bed looking out over the beautiful views is one of the great ways to spend a relaxing weekend here at Spicers Hidden Vale. There is as much or as little...

I stayed with Spicers as I was attending a wedding nearby. A country getaway would not be my first choice of places to visit but Spicers Hidden Vale as completely changed my mind. This is a must do especially if you are a foodie. A big thank you to the amazing staff.

Spicers Hiddenvale is by far the best property I have had the pleasure of staying at. The food, service and accommodation exceeds expectations. The views are spectacular, complemented by the well maintained grounds. Highly recommend a trip to the day spa and breakfast is a must!

I have been to other Spicers Resorts and I liked them better but that is just a personal view. It is a long way to travel, if you like bush settings it is great and the service is fantastic. We stayed in a cottage and I feel for the money it probably wasn't quite up to standard.

Spicer's Hidden Vale is a lovely resort with great scenery.Very clean and comfortable with friendly, helpful staff and delicious food. There is plenty to do though we were disappointed that the archery was not available during our stay and the sofa bed is uncomfortable.

The perfect location for teams that need to get away from it all and really focus on planning the year ahead. Restaurant and conference facilities spot on. Cottage accommodation just the right feel for a 'farm stay.' The scones for morning tea were to die for. Loved ending the day around the campfire with a good red. The staff were...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just an hour from Brisbane set on a stunning 12,000 acre property, Spicers Hidden Vale is a true hidden gem. The retreat is centered around a stunning historic homestead with wide verandas providing views over the little Liverpool Ranges and infinity rock pool. Hatted restaurant Homage is housed inside the homestead where a dedicated team of chefs create masterpieces based entirely on local produce. The original barn is still standing and has been restored, now a place to lounge and relax by the fire, or have beverage or two looking out over the 89 bed market garden. You can set your own pace - for those wanting to relax, there are picnic points, Spa Anise Day Spa, and two beautiful pools with mountain views to relax in. For those wanting a faster pace, there are mountain bike and bush walking trails, 4WD property tours, laser clay and archery. Being a nature refuge, the land is abundant with native wildlife including hundreds of Kangaroos and Wallabies and regular koala sightings. Spicers Hidden Vale has 31 rooms. Choose from Valley View Rooms which overlook the mountains, each with their own private veranda, Heritage suites which stand alone and have their own spa, a cottage for 4, 8 or even 12 guests or for the ultimate experience, Luxury suites which are stand alone, with spacious lounge, spa and private veranda. ... more   less
