Originally built by Arthur Hardy in 1852 as his Summer residence, Mount Lofty House was the celebration destination for the pinnacle of high society at the time.

Today more than 160 years later the tradition lives on.

Here at Mount Lofty House we take great pride in the local produce available in the Piccadilly Valley and the delicious wines from the Adelaide Hills. As such we are passionate about providing truly world class dining experiences. We have been recognized as the premier conference and events venue in South Australia, winning the SA Tourism Award for best Business Events venue in South Australia in 2016. This year we were a finalist in the Australian Hotel Association Awards for Conference & Events Venue.

We have a range of dining options available throughout our estate including fine dining in Hardy’s Verandah Restaurant, share platters in Arthur Waterhouse Lounge and the tiered lawns, experiential dining experiences in the gardens, and a range of more traditional event dining menus in our meticulously restored heritage event venues.
