Worldly, boutique, unique, luxury, perfection, personal and inviting!

Welcomed with a friendly smile and made to feel special. Streamline process for check-in and checkout. Our room was exquisite, beautifully presented with decor in keeping with the history of the house. The view in the morning was stunning as the mist slowly cleared revealing the Piccadilly Valley displaying all its Autumn beauty! Followed by the perfect cuisine for breakfast, including spinach with the cooked breakfast, selections of muesli, the finest fruits and Danish pastries! Our daughter was married on the Piccadilly lawns, continuing the perfection of the ceremony with the canapés on the lawns and balcony, reception with the stunning views over the Valley, magnificent food and dancing the night away all with the wonderful staff looking after us all! I want to thank all at MLH for an incredibly hospitable and perfect experience I will remember forever!

Luxurious, indulgent, tranquil and special.

My daughter and I enjoyed 24 hours of pure bliss. From the moment we entered the space we felt nurtured and free from the 'rat race' outside. The service was excellent and the meals we enjoyed delicious. Thank you.

A special occasion which was a family wedding and perfect in every way.

We enjoyed every minute of our two night stay. The hotel was close to some charming Adelaide Hills towns which we visited. The wedding in the garden by the fountain was perfect and followed by a lunch which lasted until 5pm. The food and service were excellent and the atmosphere relaxed. At no time were we hurried to leave. Some casual snacks and drinks in the bar that evening was a perfect ending and gave us a chance to say goodbye to friends leaving early the next day.

Guests at a wedding, wonderful to stay in such beautiful surroundings.

Privileged to be able to spend the night in a heritage building. Lovingly cared for inside and out. The gardens are beautifully maintained. Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy our surroundings.

A perfect getaway for a local.

Last minute idea for the girls and I to get out of Adelaide without driving for several hours. We often have spoken about spending a night at Mount Lofty House and we all said we were so glad we did it. As my 18 year old daughter said it was a really needed and fantastic idea just to get out of Adelaide in an ideal location. Everything from the initial contact, how we were greeted when we got there, the facilities and rooms (connecting on a balcony with an amazing view 🙂 was great, and our casual dining needs were also top-notch. Although we only spent one night it felt like a real getaway and recharged our batteries with some quality family time.

We come each year for our anniversary and this year the service was exceptional! I wish I could remember the name of the gentleman who greeted us on arrival as we went to check in. He went out of his way to provide the most exceptional service, picking up on my 6 year old sons mumbled statement of wanting a honey sandwich and having it promptly made and delivered to our rooms.

A beautifully maintained and presented historic hotel with stunning gardens and exceptional service.

We had a wonderful time at Mt Lofty House and all of the staff were incredibly welcoming and also very helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them, one of the staff members even drove us into town to visit the chemist. The hotel itself was magnificent, beautifully restored and maintained and set in the most beautiful gardens. The Hardy Verandah Restaurant was amazing, incredible food and excellent service.

Beautiful stay in a gorgeous, historic building!

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay at Mt Lofty House for my friend's wedding. The reception staff was beyond courteous and was incredibly accommodating in letting us check in early to prepare for the festivities since we had just flown into town. Furthermore, the manager on duty personally made us coffee drinks while we waited. The entire premises is beautiful and well-preserved; our room was spacious, and all the amenities were fantastic. We had a great time in this boutique hotel; thank you very much!

If our experience was a liqueur we would be on the top shelf.

Scenic top of the world experience. Old charm and grandeur but up-to-date. We are hooked on fine dining now. Exquisite and faultless. Impressive quality in service. There has been extensive planning and investment to make this a must experience destination. We intend returning regularly.

Outstanding service with a very warming atmosphere

Service was magnificent on all levels! On arrival it was down-pouring with rain and the staff were very accomodating with collecting our bags and delivering us to our room. When we checked out the concierge gave us his time to take photos of my partner and I around the property, nothing was to hard! Everything from the A-class service to the high end dining and exquisite cocktails will give me no hesitation in staying at Mount Lofty House again!!
