Tripadvisor has announced its highly anticipated Best of the Best Hotels list as part of its 2023 Travellers’ Choice Awards. Now in its 21st edition, the list highlights the very best places to stay across Australia and the world right now, according to travellers from around the globe.

Analysing 12 months of review data from over 1.5 million hotels, the annual Awards celebrate travellers’ favourite stays across 10 categories, from the revered ‘Top Hotels’ category, to the Hottest New Hotels, Best Hotels for Sleep, Best Luxury Hotels, Best Inns and B&Bs, and more.

South Australian boutique hotel in the Adelaide Hills, Mount Lofty House, has been named No.1  in the South Pacific for both the ‘Small Hotels’ and ‘Luxury Hotels’ categories, as well as No. 24 in the world for the ‘Small Hotels’ category.

With a 30-acre estate overlooking Piccadilly Valley, Mount Lofty House has been one of SA’s premier dining and accommodation destinations since the 80’s and continues to be an icon of the state. Built in 1852, the historic building has a long and rich history that is embedded into its ethos.

Offering not only accommodation, Mount Lofty House also boats impeccable dining and spa facilities that can be utilised by both hotel guests and day visitors. 

The addition of Sequoia, a luxury 14-suite lodge nestled amongst the Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens has seen Mount Lofty House solidify itself as one of the top hotels in the country and is now being recognised on a world scale.

Taking out the number one place in the prestigious Top Hotels category this year is Rambagh
Palace in Jaipur, India. Closer to home, seven Aussie hotels have made the top 10 hotels in the South Pacific, with Pinetrees Lodge taking the title of Top Hotel in the South Pacific for 2023.

“It’s clear that our community ventured far and wide in the last year: Our 10 subcategories encompass winners from 37 regions around the world and include a wide range of amazingplaces to stay,” said Sarah Firshein, Head of Editorial at Tripadvisor.

“As our savvy reviewers know, hotels can sometimes be the entire reason for the trip—I’m personally very excited to consult this list as I plot out the next year of vacations with my own family.”
