My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights with a wedding to attend there on the second night. Perfect place to stay for the wedding as we didn't need to worry about taxis. The room we had off of the library was lovely, no views but we did have our own verandah and private garden area. The staff were...

I was a participant at the recent API Summer School held at Mt Lofty. I would like to acknowledge the wonderful hospitality I received during my 12 day stay at Mt Lofty. Nothing was too much trouble for the team at Mt lofty, particularly those responsible for meals/drinks, set-up etc. Please pass on my sincere gratitude for their superb service.

The rolling hills were covered in grape vineyards, then ate a hearty breakfast that was top-notch and the showers.. were the BEST in the...

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...
