Set on the slopes of Adelaide Hills overlooking the picturesque Piccadilly Valley, Mt Lofty House offers the perfect luxurious romantic getaway, only fifteen minutes from Adelaide's CBD.


The boutique hotel offers a full range of services, from their award-winning fine dining restaurant to the opulent day spa, stylish rooms, and stylish, beautifully appointed venue for weddings, conferences, and functions.


Accommodation at Mt Lofty House

The accommodation at Mt Lofty House effortlessly combines historic charm with modern-day luxury. There are a number of different rooms, cottages, and suites. Choose from spacious, elegant rooms in the House Original, Piccadilly Garden or Valley View Rooms. Or, for those needing more space, there are the Suites and Cottages (which accommodate between 4 and 10 people).


The reviews speak for themselves; writing about the rooms, guests have described them as “spacious and generous”, “stunning with incredible views” and “breathtaking views of rolling hills, it’s Adelaide’s best-kept secret”.


From the time that guests arrive until they depart, the staff at Mt Lofty do their utmost to ensure that they take care of their guests’ every need. Time and time again, previous guests have mentioned the excellent level of attention and service they received at Mt Lofty, describing the staff as “professional, polite and friendly” and “the service is some of the best we have ever experienced in Australia.” Other comments include “staff work together to create an unrivaled ambiance” and “You won't want to leave it's so good!“


Hardy’s Fine Dining Restaurant


The award-winning fine dining restaurant Hardy’s is redolent of the excellence and elegance that Arthur Hardy himself would have enjoyed nearly two hundred years ago. The restaurant pays homage to times gone by, yet remains at the cutting edge of the exciting food trends that shape modern cuisine.


Much of the produce is grown and foraged on the property paving the way for exquisitely balanced meals with fresh, seasonal ingredients from the area which are paired with the sommelier’s expert wine recommendations.


Past guests commented on the excellent quality of the food, the attentive service, and the expert wine pairing suggestions. In the words of one diner “our four-course dinner was nothing short of amazing with the service to match”, and another “we enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Hardy's Verandah restaurant”.


Mt Lofty’s Facilities

The Spa

The pampering luxury of Stable’s Day Spa will ensure that you leave Mt Lofty feeling completely relaxed. The spa offers conveniently accessible oasis away from the city, with beautiful views over the hills.


The spa’s commitment to excellence and creating an escape for their clients is reflected in the positive reviews that it continues to receive such as “the staff went above and beyond to make this an enjoyable experience”, “Excellent service and facilities. Highly recommend. Staff were friendly and professional. Fantastic relaxing massage” and “This was an amazing pamper experience.”


The Venue

Previous guests can’t speak highly enough of the impeccable service, and beautiful location. Popular for wedding and conferences, Mt Lofty House offers an exclusive, upmarket experience with the convenience of a location close to the city.


Winner of the 2015 SA Tourism Award for Best Business Venue, Mt Lofty offers a fully customisable service for businesses whether you’re looking for a brainstorming retreat, a team-building weekend away or to celebrate a special occasion.


Celebrating a wedding here is an unparalleled romantic experience, as a recent bride commented about her wedding “it was beyond perfect. The venue looked amazing and the view over Adelaide is hard to beat, especially when the sun is down and the city lights are on.”
