Came here on an overnight visit to celebrate my birthday... Room was very nice and on arrival they already had the heater and tv on.. Spent time looking around and in the study we spoke to a very friendly staff member who gave us some history on the building... Dinner even though not a huge choice was first class and... 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

We stayed at the lovely self contained Pinot cottage, very new and spacious with new appliances and great facilities. Highly recommend it! The only issue is you are some distance from the main building which can be a problem in the misty rain or at night.

We were given a voucher to dine here. It was a miserable day and our trip to the summit was disappointing and we went to this place well ahead of our booking time. However the attention we received when we arrived was amazing. The place itself is full of character and we had time to explore some of it. It... More

We were the lucky recipients of a weekend away at Mt Lofty house in May this year. Wonderful service and room. Great trip to the Barossa valley. View from the dining room absolutely superb. One thing that could be remedied, I'm sure, is the pump/generator...that worked all night - didn't sleep very well. Room11. Robyn and Paul
