We stayed at The Louise for just one night.... The only problem was it wasn't long enough. Firstly I wanted to point out the amazing service I received leading up to our special stay to celebrate with my husband. Nicole was outstanding, great service like this is very hard to find these days and she went above and beyond. Well... More

Nestled in a quiet part of the Barossa Valley but still close to everything The Louise is a great place to base yourself at in the Barossa. Appellation Restaurant is excellent, the staff friendly and the accommodation very comfortable. The Louise is ideal for a couple looking for a quiet romantic few days away. No-one intrudes on your privacy and... More

My husband and I stayed at the Louise in late March to celebrate our birthdays. First, let me say that the service and staff were great overall. The rooms were nicely appointed and bathrooms large and spacious. However, my biggest issue staying at the Louise were the millipedes! It was at infestation proportions.. Although staff attempted spraying the room to... More

Thank you for your compliment on our service and staff, guest suite appointments and spacious bathrooms. Your note is much appreciated.

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend (Friday to Sunday) as a birthday treat. We stayed in a Stonewell suite (room 29), which was just the perfect size. There was a large king bedroom with fireplace ( it was actually a gas fireplace so easy to turn on but looked like a log fire which was great... More

My boyfriend brought me for a visit to Barossa and we stayed here overnight. Many reviewers complain that it is overpriced. However, considering that Australia is overpriced and this place is part of the Luxury Lodges of Australia, in this context The Louise is actually reasonably priced. We stayed at one of the Stonewell Suites and I love the whole... More

This is a fantastic place to relax and enjoy visiting the Barossa. Rooms have everything you could possibly want - a comfortable and spacious living area, really comfortable bed with good quality pillows, outside terrace areas, and spa bath complete with a rubber ducky. Breakfast is delivered to your room, and offered a good choice of options. Not cheap, but... More

Sadly, after hearing so much about this hotel we were not that impressed - overpriced is the one word that would describe our stay. Whilst the staff were friendly and efficient we found the bar, restaurant and food a bit soulless. Considering most of your time is spent in your very nice room, I would expect to come in to...

The Louise is justifiably famous - and it is lovely. We had suite 33 which has the 2 bedrooms as there were 2 couples. It worked really well. Lovely terraces front and back and gorgeous views over the vineyards. Restaurant Appellation excellent. Not surprisingly, a good wine list. Central location for exploring the Barossa, and easy to find (not all... More
