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.

Mount Lofty House was exceptional in every way - all the staff provided very high levels of service and the food in the restaurants was impeccable. They looked after me very well in terms of managing dietary requirements as well. We also visited Gatekeepers Day Spa which was a lovely way to end our trip. The rooms were lovely and very comfortable, and very clean. Would love to come back to Mount Lofty House again in future.

Heavenly restful luxurious escape

Humberstone36 Couples - TripAdvisor review

We chose Mt Lofty House for its location, award winning restaurant and great reputation. Even knowing all that, our 3 night stay really exceeded our expectations. Wonderful, professional staff, a beautiful and lovingly cared for country house, very comfortable rooms and absolutely delicious meals. We barely left the property and returned home well-rested and nourished in every sense.

Dear Humberstone36, It was our absolute pleasure to welcome you for a relaxing and luxurious 3 night stay at the stunning Mount Lofty Estate. It is truly wonderful to hear that we exceeded expectations, we pride ourselves on delivering good old-fashioned hospitality and making every guest feel like they have come ‘home’. Thank you so much for the kind words about our dedicated team, reviews like this really mean the world to us and I cannot wait to share this with them. I so hope we are able to welcome you back again soon. Kindest regards Christopher and the Mount Lofty Estate Family

Wonderful Mount Lofty House!
