Certificate of Excellence
In the Adelaide Hills Wine Region, yet just 15 minutes from the Adelaide CBD, historic Mount Lofty House is the premier destination for luxury escapes, overnight accommodation, fine dining, boutique day spa experiences, conference retreats and weddings. Built in 1852 by Arthur Hardy, Mt Lofty House became a venue for the most lavish parties, where Arthur would take great delight in hosting Adelaide's high society. Relax in our Stables Day Spa, or indulge at one of the state's most awarded and decadent fine dining restaurants Hardy's Verandah Restaurant. Feeling more adventurous? Explore the 30 acre estate or maybe a glass of our own Sequoia sparkling while looking out over the beautiful Piccadilly Valley. This year all rooms have been totally refurbished providing a new level of accommodation in South Australia. Celebrating a tradition of Luxury. Mount Lofty House.
