Built in 1852 for Arthur Hardy, the house was his summer residence, but it also became a venue for the most lavish parties. Today, the space has been transformed into SA's top restaurants true to the house's tradition of refinement, elegance and opulence.

The setting is gorgeous. The staff are kind and attentive without being stuffy. The food is delicious. The decor is so tasteful and beautiful - it feels relaxing just being there, and of course the Adelaide Hills are beautiful. I will definitely try to come back.

Everything was perfect, you just need to prepare your wallet. This is one of the rare hotels in Australia that we would come back after our first visit. The service was superb and we were happy to spend a weekend at Mt Lofty House.
