My husband and I stayed at the Mud Hut Motel for one night. We found it to be spacious, clean and well appointed. The beds are comfortable and it is close to everything in town. We would certainly stay again.

This is a good place to stay in town if you don't need to stay underground. The rooms are well-appointed, large, and reasonably quiet. I only stayed here for one night but I'd stay again - compared to other places I've stayed in Coober Pedy this one has been the best so far.

To be honest, I've only tried two other places, but neither of them were better than here, and you'd be hard pressed to exceed the quality of experience the Mud Hut provides. Large, well appointed and comfortable rooms, cool in summer, with friendly, accommodating staff. I use it every time I visit now.

Very large room for 3 people, very clean and friendly staff willing to answer any questions we had. The rooms had king singles which was a bonus for my sister and we had a king bed which is great when you partner is very tall.

Located near the Big Winch tourist stop, the Mud Hut provided our party of two couples with a spacious, two bedroom apartment with fully equipped kitchen and very comfy lounge and beds.

We stayed at the Mud Hutt Motel on our way to Uluru. It is conveniently located, has clean spacious rooms and a fridge that actually gets cold! The check in process was quick and the room was at the back of the motel in a quiet spot with secure ,parking.

One of the best motels we know. Spacious, comfortable rooms, easy, effective free wifi (sadly still by no means a given in Australia). Attractive mud hut buildings add extra charm, manager friendly and helpful. Nice touches in rooms, eg the Sturt Desert Pea painted on the glass soap dispenser! (Cigarette disposal units outside rooms could be emptied more often.) Recommend... More

Very handy in the centre of town. Rammed earth buildings were very quiet and peaceful. The reception was quick and easy and the staff friendly. The room was clean and well serviced. An early breakfast could be arranged if we wanted to get on the road. We stayed only one night on the way through to our holiday in the... More
