We have stayed at Mount Lofty before so we knew we were spending a couple of nights in luxury. Decided to book one of the Valley View rooms to get full enjoyment of the view . Its a magnificent location. Well we seemed to have been given an upgrade. We stayed in the Hardy Suite. Spacious, charming, olde worlde. We had access to the long verandah and the views across gardens and the valley. The sun rose over the hills in magnificent reds...beautiful beautiful. On the practical side...place is spotless, service very very friendly, restaurant very nice indeed , though wine I think too pricey. We had continental breakfast included..wonderful spread. Highly recommend going to Mount Lofty House for a couple of nights. There is even a Billiard Room, Library, Drawing Room. Well done McGallery
hi AnneBasse I am delighted you ventured all the way from Perth to experience Mount Lofty House! As you discovered, Mount Lofty House is a magnificent heritage mansion, with many beautiful areas to explore - notwithstanding the fact we are perched atop of the Adelaide Hills with stunning views over the Piccadilly Valley. We pride ourselves on delivering that impeccable and personable service your referred to and experienced, for us having guests at Mount Lofty House is just like welcoming friends into our own home! My thanks for your review and I am pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. Best wishes Tony Tony Barradale General Manager
We stayed for two nights in the heritage wing, room 6 which was in a very private area of the hotel. The hotel is beautiful in a fabulous location. 5 star service is under stated which allows for ultimate relaxation and comfort. Terrific areas such as the library and drawing room, beautiful cosy lounge rooms all over the building. Restaurant was excellent with beautiful views and superb views. Credit to Safwan for making our dining experience special. A very pleasant stay.
Our 33rd wedding anniversary celebration. We had visited the Beautiful Summit Botanic gardens over looking the Valley previously and decided this was a Picture Perfect setting for a romantic dinner. Our room was divine, with a balcony but no view due to Fog. This did not stop the evening being great....but we will return to set the view we missed. Thankyou to the wonderful staff doing south Australia proud.
I am disabled and very tall ie 215cm so I am always careful with bookings and always confirm details approx. 2 to 3 weeks from arrival if I booked a couple of months in advance which I did. The room on arrival was on two levels which bad enough given I cannot get up stairs but there were 10 steps from the hallway to the front door and then another 10 steps from the sitting room to the bedroom. I also selected a room when booking with a balcony and this was conformed 10 days prior to arrival of course no balcony so back to reception Then they asked us to sit and have tea while the explored options so the best option was we were put into a nice suite for the first night then had to move to a room which my partner best described as the servants quarters, the balcony was next to the staff entrance and as there was a wedding at the hotel the second night dinner was in a restaurant with a reduced size and we thought the menu was restricted as well (this was an error it was always restricted) the noise from the wedding was appalling and we only got a couple of hours sleep as the room was poorly ventilated unless you lefty the balcony door open but because it would not open completely open the blind on it hit the frame so no mechanism to hold it open and it was the only source of ventilation other than the air conditioner. The staff were great and spent a lot of apologising and substantially reduced the bill. My partner had a spa treatment and said the spa was great and the charge was refunded for example. But when you come to a special place which is how this was marketed you don't expect to stay one night in a throne room and the next in the stables next to main road so revving motor bikes at 5 am saw us run not walk out. In short check everything before arrival and then hope and pray you get lucky we didn't. One apology we got regarding the Accor Club room policy of guaranteeing room was that not all the reservations were done as Accor club reservations. I do not if this is true or not. The views are sensational as is the property in terms of appearance but if you are disabled remember the rooms can be 500 meters from the Lifts and steps onto balcony's are also quite high. In short a trip we will not be repeating.
Dear Jhmc01, Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay at Mount Lofty House. We do appreciate all feedback, taking it into consideration, with the express aim of continually improving the services we provide. It is always a disappointment when we become aware of a guest who has a less than satisfactory experience for any reason. Acknowledging each guest has high expectations from the moment they choose to stay at Mount Lofty House, we endeavour always to give the very best service, and our dedicated team work hard to achieve this, for every aspect of your stay. Mount Lofty House is a glorious property with spectacular grounds and excellent facilities.

We do offer several suitable room options for guests who have difficulties managing stairs, and our friendly Reception team are always at the ready to assist in every way possible, as you discovered. Many of our elderly and disabled guests have experienced wonderful stays with us, and several regularly return. We do regret you found your recent visit somewhat disappointing and we hope you will allow us the opportunity in the near future to give you the high standard of service that we love to deliver.
If you have only one hotel stay to make in Adelaide on your bucket list make it Mount Lofty House. This is a magnificent old style building (it was partially (?) rebuilt after a fire) that is kept in magnificent condition and which has great staff. The restaurant is high quality and the grounds and setting - you guessed it - are magnificent! We have stayed here several times while visiting Adelaide and enjoy each visit and it is on our bucket list again. We used a complimentary night on Advantage Plus and we keep an eye out for deals on Advplus. It is not the cheapest hotel in Adelaide but it is the best value taking into account the above comments

Thank you once again for your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
We were celebrating three big birthdays in the family, a 50,60 and 80 so we decided to do something special and have a night at Mount Lofty House. Two couples were on the Indulgence Package the other on an internet deal. We were in adjoining rooms in the Heritage Wing with a superb view over the Piccadilly Valley. Friendly and helpful reception and efficient check in. We had lunch on our balcony and then a walk to the nearby botanic gardens then up to the summit. Other family members joined us for dinner. Lovely food, presented well. Emphasis on local produce. Breakfast next morning a lovely continental buffet, but what a buffet. Hot could be ordered and some did go for pancakes and omelette, but it defeated them. Yes it's pricey but has the right touch for a special get away. We explored all the nooks and grannies and had a game of snooker in the billiard room, used the computer in the library. You can also grab the tennis rackets and balls for the court from the billiard room. This is a must do.

There was no receptionist on duty when we arrived at 7pm Friday night. We were therefore directed to the restaurant, where the manager was obviously busy and uninterested in anything but handing us a key. When trying to confirm our booking included a late checkout and breakfast we were told that he didn't have a clue about our reservation and we would have to check with reception in the morning. When arriving at our room, we realised our extra $30 spent on a view was a waste of money as our window was obscured by a permanent marquee roof. The only view was from the end of of the balcony (and therefore you had to go outside to see it). We also saw that we should have free wi-fi in the room so we called reception (and spoke to the restaurant) to get a code. The code that was brought to the room (by a waitress from the restaurant) was valid for only one device and for only 9 hours. The king size bed was a zip together bed without a topper so we tended to roll into the middle. A lack of power points near the bed made life difficult and the shower temperature was very difficult to regulate. We did have a lovely meal in the restaurant, but the service was lacking at times - having to wait for water glasses to be refilled and pouring our own wine, and having to go up to the counter to ask for our after dinner drinks and the bill. The receptionist who checked us out was very nice, although didn't offer us any recompense for our wasted money on a view room that doesn't actually have a view. We don't get many opportunities to have nights away and overall it was an unfortunately disappointing experience.

We had a wonderful stay at Mercure Mount Lofy with a late check out which enabled us to take our time over breakfast and take a walk outside in the sunshine . The meals were very good and the staff very helpful .

A beautiful setting and house but getting tired. Also impossible to get the right temperature in the shower. A romantic dinner was intruded upon by a wedding band singing in the adjoining function room.

Lovely surrounds, pleasant helpful staff. Spacious comfortable room but bathroom a little challenging for seniors with shower over bath, making it a little difficult to access. Expected more comfortable tables and chairs in breakfast room, they were comfortable but definitely not 5 star.

Because of my Gold Card we were upgraded to a suite - wow! The room was extremely comfortable and the view from the balcony was wonderful. We wanted to stay in the Adelaide Hills rather than the City and weren't disappointed. Make no mistake, this is a 5-star property and priced accordingly.
