This was our second visit to The Louise. We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary there 5 years ago and enjoyed it so much, we went back again to celebrate our 30th!. The rooms are luxurious and very private, with lovely views of vineyards. The Appellation restaurant has excellent food and a good selection of local wines. The staff are wonderful,... More

This was our second stay at The Louise and once again it did not disappoint. We were personally greeted as we approached the reception building and our welcome and checkin took place in our suite which was a nice touch. The accommodation is superb from the comfy chairs positioned in front of the fire to the heated floor of the... More

We were so impressed with the accommodation and the service, would definitely stay here again. I really liked the way we were greeted as we were walking up the courtyard entrance and were taken straight to our suite without having to go to reception, check in was done on the way to our suite, EXCELLENT way to check in!

Excellent accommodation and service but the Appelation restaurant was very disappointing. Service standards and wines were very good but the menu contained nothing hearty. Each of The courses on the four course menu were little more than of appetizer size and with one or two exceptions were served cold. That the flavours of the courses were excellent only aggravated the... More

The rooms are modern and comfortable, foods are excellent! However, what distinguishes this place apart from other luxury hotels is it's amazing hospitality and services. The DVD player in our room was mis-functioned around 9 o'clock at night and we were in the middle of our movie. It was a quite upset moment as we really want to finish the... More

Cannot recommend this place highly enough. The restaurant is amazing and the resort is flawless. Will be back. The meal at Appellation was one of the best I've ever had. The room was well appointed and the view over the vineyard was sublime. The staff couldn't do enough to make the stay memorable. Finally a resort that does credit to... More

Spent a night at The Louise and it was peerless. Welcoming attentive kind service, fantastic rooms where every detail is attended to. A whole array of nice touches throughout the stay. A wonderful breakfast well presented in the room. Just everything is on the money here. How a small boutique hotel should be run. Fabulous

What a beautiful location among the vines. The rooms are very luxurious, consisting of a bedroom, sitting area with a separate small eating are with coffee making facilities, fridge, etc as well as a gorgeous bathroom with lovely amenities. There's even an additional outdoor shower. All very well planned and service was impeccable.

The Louise is luxury in an understated way. It's not flashy but just well appointed and relaxing. On arrival we were greeted as we got out of the car and taken to our suite for check in. The suite was very well laid out with a neat bedroom/sitting room with log fire, TV, DVD, music player and Bose radio. There... More
