We stayed 3 nights at the Louise and loved every minute of it. Everything was first class and the service was tremendous. There cant be a better place to stay. You have lots of room in and out of the rooms. Each room has a patio area in the front and the back. Outdoor showers were also a plus. The... More

Staying at this boutique Lodge can be easily characterised as a treat. Superb rooms, most gracious, helpful and friendly service in all areas and a restaurant, Appellation, which ticks all boxes. There is nothing more to wish for........

We stayed in this beautiful hotel last Friday night. Our party had suite 20 and suite 21. We thought the hotel was absolutely fabulous, certainly amongst the best that I've ever stayed in UNTIL we got into bed! It was just like a camp bed, I have rarely been so disappointed, the most uncomfortable nights sleep ever! My daughter, in... More

We enjoyed our stay very much: + extremely nice suites (we got an upgrade), dinner perfect, breakfast on the terace of the suite even better, lovelely wine area, very good wine estates and testing cellars nearby. Very nice service - extremely expensive, but adequate for service

This hotel is Relais and Chateaux so I expected the best. It's in a delightful location with views over vineyards. Excellent rooms and general ambience. Wi-Fi is OK but not great. The restaurant is for dinner only. The meal was excellent although there was a bit of an issue with the timing of the sommelier vs the food. Breakfast is... More

The Louise has to be one of the most premium accommodations we've stayed in this region. The beds are cosy and comfortable and the view of the winery is quite relaxing.
