Our stay at Mount Lofty House was wonderful but too short. The staff were excellent even when our room was not set up as requested, they quickly and quietly changed everything and were only to happy to assist with anything else. The whole experience was very enjoyable, rooms, food, facilities and surrounding environment was remarkable. Adjoining the Botanical Gardens was...

This is the second time we have had the chance to visit this beautiful property ... both occasions were for weddings. The setting is stunning for an outside wedding in the gardens (except on those exceptionally hot days). The food, the service, the location, the beautiful building, the staff, etc, all make for a great experience. Being a heritage property,...

We wanted to try out the brand new Hardys Verandah Restaurant which opens later this month, and decided to have the complete experience and booked in on the Indulgence package - 4 course dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine, overnight stay with continental brekkie and a pamper package.

Hello Jrbeee, Thank you for the 5 star review. I am so happy you enjoyed our new Hardy's Verandah Restaurant, public areas and accommodation. Arthur Hardy built the venue in 1852 as his summer retreat and even all this time it still delivers the same magical experience to our guests. I do hope to welcome you back again sometime soon....

A delightful overnight stay,most highly recommended for a location near the city but feeling like being in the countryside away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The rooms were spacious with stunning views over the Piccadilly Valley and a small balcony with large opening doors from room. Gardens well cared for and great to walk around. Reception staff...

A 5 star establishment delivering an exceptional experience. Tastefully refurbished to a very high standard, the hotel provides a perfect getaway. It is hard to believe that it is only 15 minutes from the city! Breakfast was excellent and made even better by the sunny mornings we had.
