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.

Excellent location and high level of luxury, but at the price charged some of the basics could be improved. For instance it should be possible to opt for linen not being changed every day and there should be an option for a lighter breakfast.

Excellent staff in every area of this establishment. Food and wine both delicious and tasty. Waiting staff knowledgeable and attentive. Accommodation very comfortable. Not too far from Adelaide to enjoy a weekend escape..

Mt Lofty House is definitely a place to go for a special occasion to treat yourself. We were greeted as soon as our car pulled up and promptly checked in with a glass of bubbly. We were luckily upgraded to the Comservatory room which was amazing. House tour and more free bubbly followed. Dinner at Hardy’s Verandah was superb and the wines and service were top class. We had complimentary cookies in our room and then port and chocolates when our beds were turned down. Breakfast was great and I would highly recommend Mt Lofty House to anyone wanting a special night out.

Stunningly Beautiful
