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

Overall experience was nice.The two night getaway package of $690.00 just met its value for money. The accommodation was comfortable but a little bit dated, daily service could have been better, spare toilet paper missing , tissue paper holder near empty, bathroom floor tiles grotty ,especially in the corners where the mop finished. Mold around the bathroom tub, stained bath... More

Beautiful setting for a weekend away in the hills staying at Mt Lofty, though the property is a little tired looking. Make sure when you book a stay here you request the 2nd floor and a corner room if possible for views over the valley. Staff were very helpful making our stay enjoyable and restful. The botanical garden next door... More

This was my second stay at Mt Lofty house. I booked in for a night to celebrate my third wedding anniversary and was a little underwhelmed, which was how I remembered the property from my previous visit about 5 years ago, but I had decided to give it another go. I'm a Platinum Accor member and so I stay at... More

Mount Lofty House is easily reached by car from the Adelaide CBD. It is set next to a botanic garden and the view from the rooms facing Piccadilly Valley is spectacular. The rooms are beautifully furnished with huge king size beds and stunning lounge chairs. Charming double French doors open onto a private balcony. There is an inviting communal library... More

I worked here I the mid 80s and was interested in what had changed. They were in the middle of a major refurbishment. The room was a little dated but the view was magnificent. There was no where to have a drink before dinner due to refurbishment except 2 tiny spaces near a pool ( no view) or in the... More

We arrived in near freezing temperatures and were welcomed with a lovely warm and friendly greeting. This same young lady checked us out on departure and all dealings with her and other hotel staff were polite and professional. The hotel has large communal rooms with bookshelves and games with leather lounges and arm chairs to enjoy the space. Although on... More

In mid-May I had my wedding at Mt Lofty House in the Piccadilly Pavilion. My new husband and I could not have been happier with how it went. We organised everything via email as I was in another country leading up to the wedding having moved from my hometown Adelaide quite a few years ago, in fact I had never... More
