What You’ll Love...

The Hotel – Historic grandeur with Piccadilly Valley views

Walk in the footsteps of Victorian high society at the historic Mount Lofty House. Set amongst 22 acres of manicured gardens and vineyards, perched majestically atop a hilly landscape, this stunning country manor, which dates back to 1852, was once the summer home of politician Arthur Hardy, who used it to host lavish parties. To this day, indulgence is still a cornerstone of Mount Lofty House, which has recently undergone a $14 million refurbishment. Part of the renowned MGallery by Sofitel collection, this boutique hotel is home to a three chef-hatted-restaurant, a beautiful day spa and a New York-style cocktail bar - the perfect place to put the world to rights. With fabulous hospitality and extra special touches, you’ll see how the elegant spirit of this beautiful hotel is still going strong today.

The Room – Heritage style meets modern amenities

Opening onto tranquil gardens, the peaceful Piccadilly Garden rooms have been completely renovated and offer period Victorian style married with the convenience of modern amenities such as complimentary Wi-Fi, brand-new air-conditioning and HDTVs. Wake from a restful night’s sleep in your lavish four post bed and enjoy a morning coffee on your outdoor balcony overlooking the lush greenery of the hotel’s gardens. There’s no need to rush on your final day as you’re invited to enjoy late checkout until 12pm.

The Food – Three-chef hatted dining at Hardy’s Verandah Restaurant

From the moment you arrive at Mount Lofty House, the tone for indulgence is set with a glass of Mount Lofty Summit sparkling or signature tea poured for you on arrival, plus a plate of cookies and a bottle of sparkling awaiting in your room.

Start your days with continental breakfasts of artisan breads and home-made muesli at the hotel’s Piccadilly Restaurant accompanied by your choice of one hot à la carte dish per person - choose from eggs benedict, omlettes, avocado and heirloom tomatoes on toast or go all out with the Estate Breakfast consisting of Murphy's Crossing free range eggs, chipolata sausages, blushed tomato, portobello mushroom, home-style Swiss rosti and toasted artisian bread.

With your included AU$50 dining credit, you can indulge in a gastronomical experience at the hotel’s three-chef-hatted Hardy’s Verandah Restaurant, where seasonal ingredients grown and foraged onsite are showcased spectacularly on the plate and served alongside complementary drops hand-selected by the sommelier from the 170-year-old wine cellar. With such an exquisite menu paired with stunning views over the Piccadilly Valley, this decadent dining experience is sure to be a highlight of your stay.

See & Do – Go vineyard-hopping in the Adelaide Hills or relax in the day spa

Rich with history, Mount Lofty House is a tourist attraction in itself, and you can discover its secrets on a history, garden and art tour with an onsite expert complete with a signature drink. In the midst of the region’s bountiful boutique wineries and breweries, it would be rude not to savour a drop or two. Sample the nectars of Deviation Road Winery – complete with a regional charcuterie platter, sample the Reserve Block series at Lane Vineyard, taste the Amos Reserve range at Howard Vineyard and enjoy a behind-the-scenes brewery tour at Lobethal Bierhouse.

Spoil yourself and use your included AU$25 credit at the on-site Stables Day Spa, where there truly is a spa treatment to suit everyone. From the ultimate Signature Ritual that'll leave you feeling restored from head to toe, to exclusive spa facials and hot stone massages, you’ll love being pampered in the tranquil surroundings of this beautiful spa.

If you'd like to explore South Australia's renowned wine region further, Mount Lofty House is within easy reach of all the best vineyards and cellar doors in the state. The acclaimed Penfolds Grange at Magill Estate in Adelaide Hills is only 20-minute drive away, a great choice for anyone looking for a delicious food and wine experience. McLaren Vale lies just to the south, only half hour’s drive away through the hills. This area boasts a mix of boutique producers and Australian icons, where you will find the avant-garde Rubix Cube-inspired d’Arenberg Cube winery. On the north side of the Adelaide Hills lies Barossa Valley and Eden Valley, famous for red wine and world-class Riesling. If you're a passionate wine-enthusiast, Mount Lofty House is the ideal getaway.
