Gonna be a little pedantic here. From what I recall, all spiders are venomous; some don't have good capability to penetrate human skin with their fangs (though I wouldn't assume that about a big one in particular), and many have venom that wouldn't be considered 'medically significant' (as in severe pain or substantial risk for other serious complications) - thus a bite might be on par with a bee or wasp sting? But pain varies.(He went and asked to manager, if there were any poisonous spiders and was told "no", so he kindly opted not to tell his sister that the spider was in their room somewhere.
Many years ago I encountered someone who got bitten by what was probably a wolf spider (southern U.S.A.) and developed cellulitis (bacterial infection of the skin) which was then treated with antibiotics.
