Very good 8.0
The on-site restaurant Ernie is great and Philip was very attentive to the hangry children’s needs throughout the night. Thank you. We thought the pool was a little small for the size of the guesthouse, but overall was a great stay.

Two nights I the hunter
Very nice place to stay for a couple of days not a lot to to at the hotel itself, the pool is a little bit small and the wifi very slow but the staff are top notch.
Stephen, au2 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
We had nothing but friendly and helpful service from the moment we walked through the door. As we were there for a birthday, after checking in they offered us complimentary champagne at the bar! It’s the little things that make the experience. Breakfast was included at the onsite restaurant and top quality and care had been taken. Great offerings and a great view in the sun room area at the back of the restaurant if you get in early! Cannot recommend this place enough. Tranquil and inviting!
Kate, au2 night trip with friends
Poor 2.0
Nice hotel but had a terrible customer experience. Due to the hotel's error, I wasn't booked into the room I paid for. Paid for a King Deluxe but got a very small Queen. Hotel was full so mgmt said they couldn't fix it. Had to fight for many hours to get what seemed a reasonable ask given this was the hotel's error: a room rate difference refund. The way mgmt went about managing this issue was disappointing. I would not consider Spicers Retreats again.

All spiced up
all good - no complaints at all. Service was great, staff helpful and room modern and good.
PHILIP, au2 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Spicers is truly a memorable place to stay - beautifully decorated in muted tones and oak flooring, it has an equally fabulous staff team who want to make sure you can relax and unwind during your stay. Cannot fault it - the perfect weekend break.
