I stayed at the Mud Hut for the best part of two months while in town for work. The accommodation is terrific (I stayed with a colleague in a two bedroom apartment that had a kitchen - really good when you don't want to eat take away every night!). Beds comfortable. Rooms clean. Quiet. Good temperature control. Our hosts were...

The Mud Hut accommodated myself and many of my colleagues during a project in Coober Pedy. The rooms and facilities were immaculately clean and had everything you needed and wanted in a Motel. The most memorable time from my extended stay at the Mud Hut was the hospitality shown by the owners Kath and Dave. From day 1 they were...

The rooms are excellent. Very clean, beds are comfy, service is great, breakfast was filling. My only complaint is the sound coming from other rooms. I got to listen to the person in the next room on her phone for a couple of hours. Not a lot of sleep for me.

Nice room was had, loved the construction, staff were very friendly, they have a bar that opens in the afternoon which could be handy. Close to a pub that cooked adequate meals. Very hot so grateful for the good airconditioning in the afternoon. As Coober Pedy is a tiny town it was a short drive to get whatever you wanted.

Great price, clean and well presented rooms. Close to all facilities in and around town. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is available daily. If only they had their own restaurant on site that would have been brilliant.

We stayed here for one night, rooms are simple but just what we needed when passing through. The customer service levels was of a high standard. Free wifi as well. It was hardly to have a microwave also in the room
