When I next return to the Barossa I doubt I'd stay anywhere else. Five nights were ideal. Superb in suite breakfasts at a choice of 3 different tables, 2 outside and 1 inside. Really interesting private outside shower and the whole suite was beautifully appointed. Only down sides were that the whole exterior was getting a bit "tired" with wood... More

We stayed 2 nights at this superb, boutique hotel. The suites are generously proportioned, elegant, and private. We entered our suite through a large front courtyard, with table and chairs to relax in the sunshine, plus had a rear external table and chairs, looking at the vineyards and rolling hills. The breakfast menu was amazing, and was included in the... More

Wonderful experience. From the moment we arrived the service was exceptional. Our suite was large and had every convenience including a gas fire, Bose sound system, outdoor shower, coffee machine , the list goes on. Dinner in the resturant was fantastic. We chose to have the food and wine matched and were glad we took the recommendations. The staff are... More

Stayed here for my birthday weekend and the the Louise was exceptional! The service was great and the location fantastic.I would thoroughly recommend The Louise for accommodation in the Barossa. Great vineyards are close by adding to the convenience of this great hotel.

Having stayed at two other lodges our expectations were high but The Louise does not match up to the others. We had booked a suite which was very small. The sitting room only just accommodated two armchairs and a dining table against the wall. Continental Breakfast was delivered to the room. There was no option of a cooked breakfast despite... More

The Louise was a wonderful place to stay. We can't say enough good things. We ended our honeymoon traveling through Australia in Barossa Valley for a little wine country action. Up until this point the hotels had been pretty standard: clean but offering little to recommend themselves. The Louise was entirely different. They offer beautiful suites in a quiet setting... More

The Louise is the perfect place for a couple of days break in the Barossa Valley. Centrally located and close to most attractions, it is set on a hill top with expansive views of the vines and rolling hills of the Barossa. The suites are large. We were upgraded to a Seppeltsfield suite with a separate sitting room, a luggage/dressing... More

WOW what a place, just beautiful, peaceful, and a relax place. Accomodation is very clean and is more modern than some of the pics, staff are very friendly & helpful. The Restaurant "The Appellation" is worth a try too the food was amazing and the 53 page wine list was extremely tempting. Dave Adelaide

I recently stayed in this gorgeous hotel for a long weekend. It was perfect for beginning to end. We were allowed to check in early. The suite was bright and roomy with welcoming port and Anzac biscuits and fruit. The suite was perfect, big comfy bed with 2 showers, one outdoor. Breakfast was delivered to your suite, all fresh and... More
