We stayed here for a stop over between Alice Springs and Adelaide. The host was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The bunk beds mattresses were extremely comfortable however the double bed one was pretty springing and you made the other person moved when you moved. Overall a very good stay and we would stay again.

This is the first time for me a motel that is submerged into the side of a hill. With just 9 rooms it is both intimate and therefor quiet.

We've stayed at the Coober Pedy Underground Motel several times and cannot fault the rooms or the service. It's welcoming and friendly, the rooms are well furnished and spotlessly clean and the guest kitchen (and DIY included breakfast) is clean and well equipped.

Arrived after a 9 hour drive, only to find they made our reservation for the following night... There fault, as we confirmed not that long ago!!! Had to settle for a really poor hotel in the middle of town, as everything else was fully booked. "Oh, sorry bout that" was the response.. Two very unhappy families..

This was the last of about 15 phone calls and 15 rejections. To tell you the truth; we didn't know what to expect. We found an absolute gem! The rooms are small but beautifully appointed. We had an ensuite and kitchenette. There is a beautifully appointed communal kitchen just done the hall. Our nights stay included a continental breakfast. Highly...
