Spier Hotel

So what can you expect? Eighty luxe rooms and suites spread in synergy with nature. Think views of the quietly flowing Eerste River or rooms clustered around six courtyards. Choose between five light and airy options, from intimate rooms for a couples getaway to family-friendly rooms or suites that can accommodate kids.

Interiors follow a timeless elegance aesthetic with a faint rustic mood and modern elements. Cosy up after dark with a bottle of red next to the wood fireplace. The extra-large linen-covered bed says comfort, while the fireplaces in all spaces tempt an opportunity to cosy up after dark with a bottle of red.

Spier’s affinity and investment in the South African art industry come to the fore through carefully decorated wall art made by local artists in each room.
