Dining

Situated on a top-class wine estate, you'll have a range of public restaurants to choose from at Spier, all of which offer excellent cuisine and beautiful views. Moyo is by far the most spectacular and popular restaurant.

This outdoor dining experience captures the essence of African culture and is situated in a tree-dotted garden.

Dining spaces are beneath unique gazebos and in romantic tree houses. Live performers will entertain you with indigenous theatre, dance, opera, and traditional storytelling from noon until late.

Spier's newest restaurant, Eight, is a farm-to-table eating experience, offering organic produce from the local surrounds and a harmonious environment in which to enjoy healthy, hearty food.

You can also visit the Spier Deli & Grill where you can fill up your picnic basket with fresh breads and cheeses and relax beside the lake or under the trees on the lawn.

Standard Room

Rooms at the Spier Hotel are divided into Standard Rooms, Superior Rooms and Suites, and are all set in a peaceful village atmosphere. The spacious and elegant rooms are decorated to include a hint of Africa in an artistic way and feature modern amenities, including air conditioning, ceiling fans, tea and coffee making facilities, and toy boxes for kids.

The Standard Rooms are spacious and feature artworks from the comprehensive Spier Art Collection that accentuates the elegant simplicity of these rooms.

Traveller Reviews

  • Spier is a nice place. It has spirit of South Africa. It was sunny and hot. Just perfect! It was interesting to visit the area of wild predatory birds ( eagles, hawks etc.) on the territory of Spier, to walk near the river and to go to the fields. It was nice to see old buildings and facilities on territory of Spier. New Year's Eve graced us with a good selection of options available on the Spier. We said goodbye to Spier with grateful hearts.

  • Our trip went extremely well. Thank you for arranging the accommodation for us. We enjoyed Kapama, Table Bay and Spier a lot. South Africa is such a beautiful country - both the safari trip and the Cape Town visit far exceeded our expectation.

  • Our stay at The Spier was also enjoyable. The grounds of the wine farm were pretty incredible. It was nice they were also able to transport us to and from our dinner plans each night. We were surprised how many children were there. It wasn't necessarily a bad thing, but it wasn't something we expected during our stay in wine country. Maybe it was due to the fact we were there when South Africa had a public holiday...

  • The Spier Hotel, was excellent. Loved the grounds and the number of activities were fantastic. We checked out the raptors that they have there and did our share of wine tasting.

  • The Speir was nice too, but we arrived there late at night and left the next morning so I can't comment to much on the property itself. But the cheetah place and bird encounters was great. And we did have dinner that night up in a tree. So lovely!!

    Tracy Lancup, May 2012
  • Our stay at Spier was brief but very nice. Our friends met us again as soon as we arrived and took us to a market and the Waterford winery. What a special place! We came back to Spier and had dinner at Moyo on the grounds and it was another highlight of our trip. For some reason "Morroco" comes to mind. We didn't get to spend much time in our room, but it was beautiful, and the wake up call at 3:30 am came way too soon.

    Pam Farley, July 2010
  • We loved the Spier. The room was so impressive, real luxury. Staff, service, food, surroundings there all absolutely first class. We will definitely recommend and thanks for suggesting it.

    Mary Douglas, August 2008
  • The dinner at Moyo and the accommodation at the Spier Village thrilled my wife and I, of course.

    Michel de Cooman, August 2008
  • The place is very nice and the Villa worked very well for both families.

    Jose Rafael Rodriguez, April 2008
  • We loved the Bed and Breakfast that you chose for us. Wonderful staff, comfortable accommodations, good food, and nice extras recognizing our Honeymoon. They were all delightful.
