About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   We stayed at The Louise in May. I've just realized I neglected to post a review. It is a special place. Period. But what really sets it apart is two things: staff quality and the food at Appellation. The staff are lovely, local, and remarkably helpful and accomodating. And the food is superb. We enjoyed a brilliant meal in the dining room, and also had a lighter meal in the bar. Both were superb. We visited other places in the Barossa but nothing came remotely close to the experiences we enjoyed at The Louise.

Review:   Opulence and luxury! Stunning accomodation in a beautiful location. Fabulous service with attention to detail. The room was gorgeous with large living space, cosy gas fire, heated floors in the bathroom, fantastic spa and even an outdoor shower. Private terrace at the front and back of the room as well. Perfect for a couples getaway. Felt spoilt the entire time.

Review:   What an incredible resort and experience. Our suite was so luxurious and the private outdoor rain shower was heaven. The degustation at Appellation with matching wines showcasing the best of the Barossa was simply stunning. The Louise is absolutely breathtaking!
