Built in 1852 for Arthur Hardy, the house was his summer residence, but it also became a venue for the most lavish parties. Today, the space has been transformed into SA's top restaurants true to the house's tradition of refinement, elegance and opulence.

Lousixtysix Solo travel - TripAdvisor review

My valley view room was spectacular- the corner balcony boasted the promised views and inside the room looked lovely and was super comfortable. Staff were attentive and friendly without being intrusive and added luxuries included sparkling wine and delicious cookies in the room as part of the standard package. The history tour in the afternoon was entertaining as well as informative and best of all it was an opportunity to see the whole house including the amazing wine cellar. I’ll be back again to bask in the relaxing luxury and next time I’ll make sure to have dinner at HVR to add to the experience.

We all should have a bucket list for amazing hotel and guest house experiences! Mount Lofty House needs to be on it

Heading up the driveway to this amazing guest house is a sign of what lays behind those imposing doors! Staff welcomes you like returning to an old friends home. And that's the vibe with all the team that you meet. Whilst not over imposing you are constantly reminded that this guest house is yours to enjoy and relax like its your own. Rooms are spacious and provides spectacular views of the Adelaide hills. Those beds that are customer made for Mt Lofty encourage you to lie in just a little bit longer. If you are into Wine and Fine Foods this location sets the benchmark for both. Celebrating a Wine Cellar of 10,000 plus bottles including the regions best selection such as Hill Of Grace and don't worry about running out. The restaurant is exclusive to those house Guests which is a pleasant reward for those staying. Like their other Signature property Reef House Palm Cove This guest house has those same award winning values of Rest Relax and let us spoil you experiences. And Oh so convenient to Hahndorf village only minutes away along with worlds best vineyards the only problem is doing too much or too little but its your choice. So for that Bucket List experience What are you waiting for? Go on you deserve it ! Mount Lofty we will be back again.......and again !!!

Could be the best place to stay in Adelaide Hills

Could be the best place to stay in Adelaide Hills. Very good location near Mount Lofty Botanic Garden and beautiful view of the valley. The service and friendliness of the staffs are excellent. Staying at Mount Lofty House easily make us feel at home. Breakfast was very good and dinner at Hardy's Verandah was excellent, the foods presented had fine and balanced good taste. The service also quite good, although a bit slow. Mount Lofty House is also just 15 to 20min drive to the popular attractions in Adelaide Hills. Hahndorf is a very interesting "german village" with many german characteristics and it is also only 20min drive away. The heritage style Mount Lofty House itself is very attractive. We havw enjoyed our short stay there very much.

A lovely stay

We stayed at Mount Loft House for my husbands 50th birthday and had an absolutely wonderful time. We loved the great welcome with champagne on arrival, the tour of the hotel and the dinner at Hardy's Veranda restaurant. Our room was stunning with the great views of the beautiful Piccadilly Valley. The service was fantastic. From the moment we arrived, we were made feel relaxed and welcome. The staff at the front desk were professional, friendly and helpful. Everything was done with a smile. We also like to make a special mention and thank Chris (customer relation) who made sure we had everything we needed and nothing was too much trouble. The tour was a fantastic idea, we loved the special drinks and also his suggestion for wine pairing with our degustation dinner. The 7 course degustation dinner at the Hardy's Veranda Restaurant with matching wines is a must! A big thanks to the team there and Abhas, the Sommelier who helped us through the wine journey, with his exceptional knowledge and humour. We absolutely loved our stay and can't wait to come back. Thank you team .. a truly amazing experience. Dr. Bruce and Nazy Schafer
