Summer Escape Offer at Mount Lofty House

Summer Escape in the Adelaide Hills.

Mount Lofty Estate was established in 1852 as the summer residence for the Hardy family, who retreated to the cooler heights of Mount Lofty to escape the stifling heat of the Adelaide Plains. 175 years later, Mount Lofty House remains the summer destination of choice for many travellers.

Immerse yourself in the tranquillity of our stunning gardens at our Terrace Bar, located under the cool shade of giant trees, next to the gently trickling Tuscan Fountain, featuring beautiful views out over the Piccadilly Valley.

Old world charm with impeccable service
When you imagine being spoiled, well Mount Lofty House leads the way. Amazing property with stunning gardens and views of Pinnacle Valley. Dining in Hardy’s Verandah was as good if not better than any dining experience I’ve had. One of the highlights was a tour of the property, recounting the history of the house, and expertly told by Christopher. Thanks to all for a memorable visit.



Stunningly Beautiful
Forget staying anywhere else. Stay here! It is the most beautiful place I have ever stayed in. The rooms are elegant and beautiful. The food is amazing and the views are breathtaking. The staff are wonderful. Best place to stay!



Brilliant night away
Mt Lofty House is definitely a place to go for a special occasion to treat yourself. We were greeted as soon as our car pulled up and promptly checked in with a glass of bubbly. We were luckily upgraded to the Conservatory room which was amazing. House tour and more free bubbly followed. Dinner at Hardy’s Verandah was superb and the wines and service were top class. We had complimentary cookies in our room and then port and chocolates when our beds were turned down. Breakfast was great and I would highly recommend Mt Lofty House to anyone wanting a special night out.



Outstanding experience! Wonderful location, food and staff!
We have travelled all around the world and this was without doubt one of our favourite hotel experiences EVER! The staff are so kind and friendly you feel as if you are being welcomed into a family. The hotel and grounds are lovely, and the food/wine pairing equally fabulous. Make sure you add this to your list, you will not be disappointed!



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.
