Review of The Louise
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 31 Mar 2024via mobile
The Louise is just charming. The accommodation is a luxurious suite - quiet, spacious, comfy, beautifully arranged, immaculately clean. It has a private little patio with an amazing view on the vineyards. There is also a gym (well equipped and well maintained), and a pool to relax after a long day.

The location is superb - a short drive (or a long walk) to Seppeltsfield winery & estate. A visit there, along with the wine tasting, is a must. Plus, there are multiple smaller wineries and cellar doors within a few kilometres distance. Whether it is walk, bike or drive - the surrounding area is incredibly beautiful, and the wines top quality.

Now to the real treat - food and wine. Both restaurants are excellent, the Appellation - world class dining and wine pairing, and the Contour - delicious food and wine in a bit more relaxed way. Every dinner would be an entire story to tell, and even if you only have a chance to go there for a dinner - it is totally worth it.

And finally - it is not enough to say that staff and friendly and helpful; they make this place really warm and welcoming. The atmosphere is great at the Louise, and I am looking forward to coming back.

I have rarely felt so pampered. From the welcome cocktail to the tea set up in the room before bedtime the attention to detail was impeccable. The food and wine pairings were divine and breakfast was sumptuous. My only complaint was the pool was too cold but the view from the pool made up for it

Wow… what a wonderful all encompassing experience a stay at The Louise is… it ticks every box…

From the minute you arrive, weary travellers are treated to cool towels and refreshments, your luggage taken to your room and any plans/wishes you may have discussed. You feel cared for and welcomed.

The hotel is in a beautiful setting with amazing sunsets. Superbly located to explore The Barossa. The rooms are well considered with comfort in mind. The beds are sublime - like snuggling down on a cloud!

The Appelation dinners and wine pairings are Michelin star standard and are quite simply divine. They have excellent chefs with real talent - well done.

And finally a big shout out to all of the staff at The Louise. They manage to create a professional yet friendly approach, give you the privacy you need yet are there to see to your every need…

It’s an impressive operation. Would I return - yes, in an instant. Would I recommend it… without hesitation. You won’t be disappointed.

Room tip: Helpfully laundry facilities are also provided. Most welcome and appreciated if you are doing a multi location trip.

This property is the ultimate in luxury. Beautiful, spacious rooms with separate living area, fireplace, two outdoor areas, and indoor and outdoor showers. We were so impressed with the bed and pillows we plan to buy the same ones when we get home.
Breakfasts, dinners, drinks, and snacks are included in the stay. Your evening starts with a 2-hour happy hour on the sundeck with wine and cocktails overlooking the vineyard. Dinner is a multi-course degustation with matching wine pairings. The food and service is outstanding with an excellent understanding of gluten free, so as a coeliac there is no compromise in the dining experience. Even breakfast is a multi-course affair with home-made crumpets (yes they are gluten free) before your choice of hot breakfasts. Everything is local, beautifully prepared, and delicious.
Kira, one of our servers, had amazing local knowledge, not just of the wine and food, but also the local area and history. In fact all the staff, from the chef to the staff on reception were excellent - there is clearly a strong commitment to their training and development.
This place is worth the price tag.

The Louise is a beautiful, well run luxury hotel. With only 15 suites everyone gets personalized attention. My husband and I loved staying there. The food was also delicious and the wine pairings excellent. We recommend this hotel without reservations.

We just had an amazing long weekend staying at The Louise. It was our first trip to the Barossa and staying at The Louise was a highlight. The place is fantastic and a luxurious place in every aspect, we got to spend time by the pool and with our fire in our room due to changing weather. The staff made it for us and a huge shout out to Nathan who was incredibly helpful and obliging. Would definitely recommend The Louise and we will be back.

Baillie Lodges, Marketing at The Louise, responded to this reviewResponded 25 October 2023

Dear Rachael,

Thank you for sharing your experience, and we are delighted to hear that your first trip to the Barossa was highlighted by your stay at The Louise. We couldn’t think of a better way to spend the long weekend than relaxing by the pool or enjoying a complimentary glass of red by the in-suite fireplace, and we’re thrilled you could experience the relaxed luxury we aspire to bring to every guest experience.

A special shout-out to Nathan is greatly appreciated, and we'll be sure to pass on your compliments.
We look forward to welcoming you back for another amazing stay in the future, or perhaps to a sister lodge within the Baillie Lodges collection.

Warm wishes,
Team Louise
