Our hotel and grounds
30 acres of paradise, right here in the beautiful Adelaide Hills.
Boutique Designer Hotel Experience
Pure bliss & beauty, inside and out.
Arthur Hardy, who built Mount Lofty House as his summer residence, was a keen botanist and gardener. This is why our grounds are so versatile and beautiful throughout the year. But also inside we have made sure that none of your wishes will be left unmet, while you just sit back and indulge in whatever activity takes you fancy.

Artists at Residence
Stephen Trebilcock & Steven Griguol
Throughout the property you will notice Stephen Trebilcock‘s large scale Australian flora paintings. Born in the Adelaide Hills in 1952, his work is strongly influenced from his early years living on a fruit block and his love of gardening. Trebilcock is represented by Hill Smith Gallery. His calm nature reflecting art is a perfect complement to our beautiful historic estate.
The sculptures around the estate are the work of Steven Griguol. The cabinet-marker turned artist works in metal, steel and wood to create solid, strong pieces. At the same time though they acknowledge the transience and fragility of our existence and the fact we are all just passing through this life.
Everything You Imagine
Literally everything I could possibly imagine for a venue and more! No where else I had seen could have created such a beautiful even that flowed so well. We had the ceremony and lawn games by the tuscan fountain, the reception dinner outdoors overlooking the valley, and dessert and dancing indoors when it got cold. Our wedding coordinator made sure everything was 100% perfect, the food was sensational and it was such a fun event!
Dreams Come True
Michelle and Rebekkah are the most amazing people! Michelle made our reception dreams come true and we had the most amazing reception. There is nothing we could fault.
Exceptional, In Every Way.
Communication was always exceptional. In every way... we knew we could trust them with anything, and we did, a lot. We cannot praise and thank you enough!
Beautiful Inside & Out
Our ceremony at Mount Lofty House was just beautiful. Due to wet weather we had to use our backup location rather than be outside, but the team at Mount Lofty House were able to create a space which was just as beautiful inside as it would’ve been outside.

The Best Day of Our Lives
Michelle and Rebekah were so unbelievably wonderful in assisting with our wedding ceremony and reception especially when we had to postpone our original date due to Covid. They assisted us in creating the best days of our lives and helped us through all the details we hadn’t thought of. We will never be able to thank them enough for assisting to create the most spectacular day.
