The Spier

The Spier Hotel is situated on the banks of the tranquil Eerste River, on the outskirts of Stellenbosch, only 30km from Cape Town. Set on a 1,000 hectare wine estate, this certified ‘Fair Trade in Tourism’ property is designed to recreate the intimate and relaxed atmosphere of a small village. The buildings are grouped around six private courtyards and individual pools. The hotel is well known for superb food and wine, inspiring South African art and rejuvenating spa treatments. There is a tranquilly set outdoor swimming pool and river flowing through the property.
