Earlier this month, Spier won the Service Excellence Accommodation Award for the hotel category at the Western Cape Provincial Lilizela Tourism Awards 2019. The historic Stellenbosch wine farm and hotel was also a finalist for the Culture and Lifestyle Award.
“Our warm, welcoming and attentive staff have worked hard at helping the guest experience at Spier reach new heights – and this award is evidence of that,” says Joep Schoof, Spier’s GM. “We’re enormously proud to receive it and are delighted that our team’s efforts have been recognised with such a prestigious accolade.”
The award was presented by the Provincial Minister for Finance and Economic Opportunities, David Maynier. “The Lilizela Tourism Awards recognises and rewards those in the tourism sector who work passionately and with pride to deliver a world class product or experience for visitors to the Western Cape,” explained the minister at the prizegiving. “Every stakeholder in this industry, no matter how small, fulfils an incredibly important role in delivering a culture of service excellence which supports the tourism industry and in turn, grows our economy and creates jobs. They are the everyday heroes in our communities.”
