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.
What our House has to offer
Retreat, get lost in time & enjoy the moment.
Staying at Mount Lofty House is an indulgent experience, no matter what time of the year you visit and for how long. There are many options how to spend your days and nights within our walls:
Personalised Guest Service
Going above & beyond to make you feel at home.
Customer service at Mount Lofty House is more than just looking after our guests' needs. It is very important to us that you feel connected with our House and that throughout your stay there will be no wish unmet.
To start off your stay why not join us for our nightly welcome drinks at the library. Afterwards, our guest relations manager will take you on a tour to make you familiar with the estate and will tell you more about the history of the building and region. Starting at 5pm at the library every day.
Our grounds & Piccadilly Valley
When you long for some activity and soaking up the beautiful sun, head onto our 30 acre grounds for a picnic, leisurely walks, a swim or a game of tennis. And a lot more than that even.

Mount Lofty Botanic Garden
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.
Beautiful Boutique Hotel
