A relaxing beautiful place to stay. I rate this place better than excellent. Staff were caring friendly and very professional. Food was fresh and delicious. The cottage was clean comfortable and relaxing. Only wish we could have stayed longer they really spoilt us.

The staff, food, and surroundings were excellent, the accommodation was very ordinary and over priced. The room was ridiculously cramped with a shower that didn't work properly. Sorry, but we felt that the accomodation couldnt be classed as luxury.

Stayed for a weekend to attend a wedding. Venue was fantastic, loved the overall country feel of the place. Staff and service was excellent. Massage was super and reasonably priced. Will go again with friends, maybe in winter to take advantage of the fireplace.

Spicers Hidden Vale not only met my expectations, but far exceeded them. A visit to their website shows how beautiful the property is, and it met this in every way - the rooms are well furnished and tidy, the grounds are beautiful (up for a dip in the pool while kangaroos are sitting next to you and you over look...

Had a weekend here recently with my wife. What a relaxing, well laid out, fantastic place. We had a loft studio room; lots of room, nicely furnished, lovely bathroom. Everyone is so friendly. Nothing is a hassle for them. We had a dinner here as well; chateaubriand for the main was fantastic! Nice wine menu, and beer selection as well...

Absolutely quiet and relaxing! All facilities were very good and the service was outstanding! Conference facilities were good and very private. Evening in the barn before and after dinner was excellent with great vocal/guitar for ambiance, fires added to the atmosphere.

Stunning retreat, absolutely peaceful and quiet, great on-site facilities and a perfect way to relax. The food is unbelievably tasty and you feel right at home. After our conference, many of us grabbed a mountain bike each and took a ride through the trails, they were challenging and fun.

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
