Sunset Terrace and Wine Bar
Adjacent to restaurant Appellation and next to our kitchen garden, relax in a deep cushioned lounge on our terrace with a pre-dinner drink while watching the glorious Australian sunset, or choose a raised stool or banquette in our indoor wine bar and indulge with snacks and a wide range of beers, wines by the glass or cocktails. The wine bar opens at 5pm daily year round, while the sunset terrace opens from 5pm daily in warmer months. Both operate until the restaurant closes, typically about 11pm.
Spend a few hours on our three outdoor games courts, positioned with a stunning vista toward the Barossa ranges. Enjoy a lively round or two of boules (also called petanque or bocce); try your strategy against an opponent in our over-sized outdoor chess board, or test your aiming finesse on our grass croquet court.
We all know Barossa is about food and wine and we all like to indulge on holiday…but fear not, you can now work off that last petit-four at The Louise Fitness Centre (or at least alleviate the guilt!). Gym equipment includes a cross trainer, treadmills, exercise bike, weights, yoga mats and a vineyard view sure to get those endorphins going. The fitness centre is open 24 hours year-round.
What better place to take in the vineyard views and olive groves than poolside? Soak up the Southern sun and enjoy a dip in our infinity edge lap pool located on the west side of the property next to the fitness centre and sauna. A large black granite deck offers areas of shade as well as full sun and a self-serve bar will keep you cool and hydrated. Grab your book and your sunnies and while away an afternoon! Pool hours are 7am and 9pm daily (Pool is closed during low season, May through September). An outdoor shower, change room, towels and sunscreen are all accessible poolside.
Sweat it out and then cool down with our recently enlarged dry or humid cedar sauna facility. A change room and shower are within the privacy of the sauna cabin area, located adjacent to the fitness centre. The sauna is open 24 hours, year-round.
Our Boutique Louise is a great source for that little something for Mum who has watched the kids, for the dog sitter, or best yet… for a treasure for yourself. Hand-selected items including jewellery, gifts, wearables, cards and The Louise logo items can be found in the boutique. From Australian-made Fink! Pitchers to Flat-Out koalas, Helen Kaminsky hats, Elodie Barker ceramics and Australia-themed books, there’s plenty to induce some relaxed retail therapy.
All of our guest rooms are equipped with a DVD player. Bring your own movie, or borrow one from our selection of more than 60 choices from our DVD library located in our guest lounge across from reception.
For those wishing a self-serve laundry (great to refresh the suitcase at mid-point of a longer trip), a standard domestic clothes washer and dryer is available 24 hours daily, year-round. An ironing board and iron are available in your guest suite. And, for a nominal service fee, we offer a wash-and-fold same-day laundry service (except for public holidays) and access to an offsite two-day dry cleaning service.
