Staying at Mount lofty house was a relaxing and enjoyable experience with many highlights. Breakfast was delicious and exquisite, tailored for vegetarian options. Vijay (Assistant manager) was very welcoming and helped us daily select the best vegetarian combos. Fenella won our hearts with her excellent hospitality and made us feel like being at home. Francesca and his team made birthday dinner special with their warm reception in Hardy’s restaurant. However, I would love to see some delectable vegetarian options in Hardy’s restaurant. The availability of several board games in the multi-purposed cozy library was engaging for both adults and kids. There was an ample amount of space in the garden to play for kids. Mt Lofty house’s signature cookies are a wonderful treat for your palate. Thank you so much for making our stay special in every way.

Mt Lofty offers an outstanding luxury experience in an outstanding location. For our first visit to South Australia this was truly a highlight and we will definitely be back. A sparkling on arrival, in room check in, and a tour of the beautiful house make for an unforgettable experience. Service levels were outstanding.
