My wife and I had a lovely stay at this retreat. The drive from Brisbane takes about an hour an 10mins - driving was smooth sailing. Our accommodation was a one bedroom cottage with air-con and a deck, with breakfast. A heated pool is 2mins away. Other activities include bike riding, track walks. There is also a games room with...

Dear OzRob24, Thank you for your recent stay and great review. It was great to read that you and your wife had a lovely stay. Sometimes it is hard to believe that you can feel so far away from the hustle and bustle of the city yet be just over an hour's drive away. Ash and his team of chefs...

We enjoyed 3 wonderful nights at Spicers. At first glance it seems pretty extravagant but it was worth every penny. Amazing location, great amenities and food. And the staff and service is faultless. Hidden Vale is quite rustic and may not be as polished as some other 5 star resorts but we loved its charm and relaxed vibe. Definitely recommend.

Dear Purplescraps, Thank you for your recent visit and great review. Spicers Hidden Vale does have a great deal of character and history about it. Many of our guests really enjoy the rustic, country feel it provides. Mix this rustic feel with a chef hatted restaurant in Homage, peaceful accommodation, day spa and relaxed attentive service and you have the...

We booked at Spicers Hiddenvale to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We booked the Chinese cottage and loved it from the minute we opened the door. The property, pools, spa and food were all of high quality and we will definitely go back.

staff were excellent and tried their best. no doubt this place will be great for the mountain biking community very soon.

Thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of our stay including great service, clean and high quality facilities and an outstanding restaurant experience. The 3 course meal was an experience on its own and included very creative presentations and cooking techniques. Absolutely delicious. We will definitely be back.

There was a lot to like but not quite there for ££. Staff really work hard with the exception of the European backpacker waiting breakfast who had no idea. Water needs to be really hot for tea and abruptness does not work. Surrounds buildings and pools good. Games room needs some one to man the bar. This is a missed...

Dear Anita C, Thank you for your recent stay and the feedback you have provided. The barn is a fantastic area, rich with history and a lovely relaxed atmosphere to contrast with the slightly more formal dining room in the homestead. We man the bar in the barn at peak times or upon a guest request. At all other times...

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
