This motel is an experience in itself. As implied by the title all rooms are within a dugout from earlier opal sub-surface mining. Many people live in these dugouts in Coober Pedy. Our room was reasonable size and comfortable with usual motel facilities. A great advantage is that the temperature within remains fairly constant therefore heating and air conditioning are...

Once you decided to visit Coober Pedy, the best place to stay is The Lookout Cave Underground Motel. We have stayed there for 3 nights and the place is really the best to stay in Coober Pedy! Despite the underground disposition, it is very cleaned and offers all necessary convenient features as all motels in Australia.

Being there with family we enjoyed climbing up onto the roof for a unique lookout experience. The reception staff very polite and helpful gave as brochures of things that we could do, with recommendations. I saw quiet a few people enjoying the BBQ area.

When you stay in Coober Pedy the underground experience is a must. This place is one of a few choices and while I can't compare this place with others I only can highly recommend this unique accommodation and friendly service.

Comfy beds, airy rooms despite being underground, good service and basic comforts. Fabulous sunset views from the roof and handy trampoline for the kids. Free breakfast was nice bonus. Tour of cooberiedt was well worth it

My son (8 y/o) and I enjoyed a few nights here in Oct 2016 as part of an outback SA road trip. Coober Pedy was the highlight of his whole holiday! We stayed in - neat and spacious standard room (underground) which was simply yet comfortably appointed with ensuite, bar fridge, toaster and kettle. Located a short drive in to...

I came with my 3 friends, and we're all girls. This is our first trip to Coober Pedy. The check in and check out process were hassle free. The room's very comfortable. Everything described was provided in the room. We got a room in the corner, so wi-fi wasn't reached until our room, but we didn't mind. Nick was very...
