Grand Mercure Mount Lofty is an historic country house that has been rejuvenated into a fresh boutique hotel where you can work, relax, celebrate or play. This is truly a place for all seasons.

Grand Mercure Mount Lofty House was built by Arthur Hardy in the 1850's as a summer retreat for the Hardy family.

The House remained a splendid private residence for many years seeing many distinguished owners including Arthur Waterhouse and John Richardson before it was all but destroyed in the devastating Ash Wednesday fires in 1983.
