Less than forty five minutes from drive from downtown Adelaide, Mount Lofty House offers first class hospitality. The setting is stunning and the grandness of the building sets the atmosphere for a wonderful stay. The rooms and spacious and grand and the staff, to a person, are welcoming and most helpful. The breakfast is served in a bright airy room...

We originally booked in for a two night stay in a Piccadilly view room but we were upgraded to the conservatory suite. The room was stunning and very spacious, it also opened out to a lovely large balcony which overlooked the pool and the valley below. We very much enjoyed viewing the sunrise in the morning from the balcony. The...

The joy began when we arrived, driving up the driveway to the most gorgeous heritage buildings. The weather was wet and foggy but the warmth of the welcome made you forget all that. The lovely lady at the desk gave us umbrella's and suggested where to park to get closest to our room without getting any wetter. Once we were...

Mt Lofty house has many ways that impress. With the natural setting and views of the property are spectacular, it would be easy for management to relax and hide other things behind this. However, over a number of visits, there is continual drive to improve, and upgrade the property. Throughout the improvements, the high level of service from the staff...

The positives are that the building is a beautiful old stately property with lovely gardens and views. The rooms are large and the bed comfortable. We found the staff in general to be polite and pleasant, with the two young men in the lounge bar being both friendly and chatty. However, our experience there was not so great. We had...

The new owners of Mt Lofty House have lofty ambitions to take it to a six star destination. If I take the Hotel side of our visit then there is a long way to go. The room was 3.5 star. They have employed some top staff and the focus appears to be on the very good Restaurant (reviewed elsewhere) and...

We had the standard House Original room with a queen sized bed. Room itself was satisfactory, but bathroom was very small, shower was luke-warm at best, and lacked water-pressure (especially if one happened to sleep in a little).
