I'd love to say this place was amazing because it really could be. The location is amazing as are the views. The building is a historic gem and reasonably well restored. I'm an Accor gold member and stay in a lot of their properties but this one is only OK. I can't put my finger on it, but it just... More

After a long drive, I checked in at 2100 at the hotel. Firstly, the room was very nice and classy. I felt back in time but when I checked the bed, the problem was found. I felt that the linens were not changed because there were many hairs and tiny things on it. I called reception and they sent a... More

This hotel was rebuilt after a big fire some 20 years ago, and it looks old and 19th century rustic on the outside. The interior is in the same style, but with a modern touch. It markets itself as a boutique hotel, as a consequence mostly because of its small size, and as such it succeeds. Being Australia, it has... More

Hi peder h How pleasing you enjoyed your recent stay at Mount Lofty House. We take tremendous pride in presenting our beautiful manor house as it was originally built in 1852, but as you rightly said with all the modern amenities of the 21st century. I actually don't think there is anything else quite like Mount Lofty House in Australia... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this property, we wish had more time to relax and enjoy but it was a last minute decision and we had prior commitments. We arranged this room via Scoopon - the savings advised on Scoopon don't really line up but either way no complaints. It was great value for money. Breakfast was great, staff were amazing and the...

This is not quite an historic building - the original burnt down and rebuilt. It is however fascinating and I was encouraged to explore (with the help of a map). There are multiple levels, strange stairways, unexpected rooms - this is the sort of place where an Agatha Christie novel would be set. The grounds are generous and full of... More

Hi Equivico I am so pleased you enjoyed exploring our wonderful Mount Lofty House! The original house does in fact date from 1852 when it was built by the local merchant businessman Arthur Hardy. Arthur was also instrumental in establishing the precursor for what is now the Mount Lofty Botanical Gardens and also planted the first grape vines in South... More

Recently I organised an event at Mount Lofty House and it was everything I was hoping it would be and more. From the staff who were so accommodating, to the food which everyone raved about and the venue overlooking the beautiful Adelaide Hills. I cant speak more highly of it.
