Reviewed yesterday NEW

In an older style, Mount Lofty House is a rebuilt mansion with additions that blend well. It offers relaxing, well-equipped accommodation in a lovely setting. The restaurant menu was intriguing but too pricey and a bit pretentious for us, so we went to the Crafers Hotel for a hotel meal. Breakfast was great. Staff were helpful and pleasant. We would...

My fiancé and I stayed at Mount Lofty House recently. I couldn't get on here quick enough to write a review. Of course the scenery and grounds are breathtaking, but I have to say the highlight was the staff. They were all very inviting and enthusiastic. I could tell that they not only enjoy their jobs, but are proud to...

First time at Mt Lofty house and I must say such an amazing location. The views from the breakfast and conference room were just so beautiful that made boring presentations less painful. My room was a bit ordinary in its styling and is feeling a bit dated as it could do with a refresher to the bathroom area, however the...

My wife and I stayed here overnight with our 11mo daughter. I have a feeling we were allocated the 'guest with kids' room (room 16) as it was a little tired with obvious signs of wear. The room itself was very comfortable with great views over the valley although it wasn't a 'valley view' room. The restaurant and bar is...
