Beautiful historic building in the Adelaide Hills. Staff were very friendly, professional and genuinely happy to help. Loved the welcome drink and homemade cookies on arrival, the complimentary tour and the on-site restaurant so you don't have to leave.



Gorgeous hotel with amazing views!
We went to Mount Lofty house at the same time last year and loved it so much that we decided to return this summer. We love the location as it is accessible to the many SA wineries. Their Hardy's restaurant is outstanding - wonderful food with spectacular views! Definitely a special occasion restaurant, but their bar food is also excellent. Breakfast is cooked to order and is delicious, with table service and once again a beautiful view. Our room was very comfortable and overlooked the garden. Highly recommend this hotel.



The wonderful Mount Lofty House
Had the pleasure of spending a weekend at the wonderful Mount Lofty House. This is not your average 5 star hotel, this is over& above everything we thought 5 stars were. The attention from the staff at all times is so amazing & makes for a very homely and welcoming stay. The restaurant is 6 star for which I have left a seperate review. From the welcome drink to bottle of sparkling left in the room & absolutely EVERYTHING in between, Mount Lofty House goes over & above with everything they do. This was truly a very special & extra special stay.



Bliss on Mount Lofty!
Our room at Mt Lofty House was absolute Heaven - it was so hard to leave after 4 days. The setting, the comfort, the little extras - Jurlique products were wonderful - made this an amazing stay in your beautiful part of Australia. The staff were delightful and made our stay exceptional. The house itself is an absolute gem. A perfect place too for exploring the Adelaide Hills - world class!



Our visit was magic & we'll be back!
The food was first class! We had a multi course dinner with an absolutely perfect wine chosen for each course. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of coffee.
