So looked forward to lunch here. Was disapointed at how limited the menu was. We chose a steak sandwich to share. Looked wonderful, also had a pepper gravy on the side. The meat was over cooked, the salad was so cold on the bread, and sadly the sauce was tepid. Though I must admit, the chips were fantastic. Staff were lovely, and the prices acceptable. Would I eat here again, sadly, NO.

We stayed at the caravan park. Saw the rooms as they were cleaning them. Thorough job. Older but clean, and all inclusions you need. Van park amenities cleaned well every day. Staff friendly and helpful. Happy to stay here. Town is very interesting, lots to see. Check out the Breakaways out of town, magnificent.

we had no plans to stay in Coober pedy, but our car broke down, so the raa man suggested the Opal inn (I think it was the closest accomodation to where we were towed to) It was $170 per night, so we were expecting something half decent. Seriously let down. Not really sure where to start. The "noisier than a jet engine taking off" window air-conditioner, which is either off or on. Very effective, but we could not get any sleep with it on.And then the room quickly got too hot to sleep when it was off. The fridge stank, as it was turned off at the wall. Decor-something straight out of the late 70's/early 80's. To be quite honest, I didnt want to stay there from the second I opened the door..it was dark, dingy, looked dirty, and I was really worried I was going to catch something from the bedding. We actually got the towels from the bathroom, and slept on those, rather than the grotty looking sheets/pillows. One of the beds was very saggy. In the bathroom, it was clean-ish. Just very old/stained looking. Glass windows have been painted for privacy. Powerpoints were behind the bed, so you have to have the bed out from the wall to charge phone, use a hairdryer, etc. The complementary shortbreads, whilst still in date, tasted rancid..I am guessing from the heat. The only reason we got any sleep was because we went to the on-site bottle shop, and bought a bottle of gin which we then proceeded to drink.

Room Tip: if you want a good room...probably best to stay in the caravan park

Hi Connie,

Not sure where to start.. Sorry that our hotel was the first choice of your insurance provider but we did our best to accommodate you at such short notice (being a hot weekend in peak season here in Coober Pedy).

I have checked our books and note that there was no complaint/maintenance request filed with Front Office in regards to any of the issues mentioned above. We would have moved rooms or attended to anything that was troubling you at the time if it was brought to our attention. It is always best to notify the Hotel of any issues during the stay instead of after the fact. While we may be dated, we are clean and take pride in ensuring our guests have a pleasant stay while here in Coober Pedy.

In saying this, we do take your comments regarding most of the above seriously, and will look at implementing changes in the room.

The hotel is clean and tidy and has most things you require including iron and hair dryer which in some hotel- motels I have stayed in did not. It is a reasonably basic room but value for money compared to what you need to pay for better accomodation. The meals in the hotel bistro are as good as any country pub. Friendly service and reasonable wine selection.

Very Comfortable, clean room, fully equipped with all you need for your stay. Quiet at night - maybe too quiet! Lots to keep you interested throughout the town with various tours available. Food outlets very good and reasonably priced.

Hi Sheilafife

Thank you very much for your review of our property. Quiet is good at the moment, it means you have just beat the season - which is about to start soon, and had the town to yourself. We hope you stop in again, and maybe get a chance to do a tour or two.
