Booked this hotel a month in advance for my partner's birthday. Organised for flowers to be on the bed in the form of a heart shape with florist that the hotel recommended. I really wanted a room with a view but was advised none were available. Nonetheless, I got a room with a garden and swimming pool view which wasnt... More

We stayed one night in September, before the season started and many parts of the hotel were under renovation. We liked the room very much, the interiors are done in a great nostalgic style. The restaurant had great food and wine.

Amazing place. It has the heritage architecture. Anyone visiting South Australia should definitely stay at least a night here. If not try the restaurant. It's a amazing place. We were trying to book a weekend later this month but was booked out.

We spent a night at Mt Lofty house and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The elegance of the room and the fine dining made it a most memorable stay. the House is currently being renovated, but the staff went out of their way to make it a very comfortable night.

Mount Lofty House etched in on the side of a hill closely overlooking the Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens. Grandeur comes to mind even now after having been rebuilt and restored after the devastating Ash Wednesday that burnt it down, it speaks wonders. Warmly welcomed and received by all the staff during our stay. On arrival we were told we had... More

We stayed at Mount Lofty House last week as one of those special mid week winter escapes. After a good deal of anticipation, we arrived on a cold, wet and windy day. Our room was already nicely heated and it lived up to our expectations. We explored the building which is quite extensive in layout. Part of it was undergoing... More

I treated myself to a night at Mount Lofty House as part of a course I was attending. It was a comfortable stay in a nicely decorated room. Service was friendly and efficient and free wifi was included. This used to be a rare thing in Australia but thankfully seems to be getting more common. Despite the plentiful character I... More
